    Well ,I know where the money isn't going ...in my damn bank account!!!! The Biggins just got paid man.
    Oh the madness , oh the pain of just being the poor sucka that I am paying rent with no chance of building any equity. FOX producers come save me from a life of....... a life of......anonymity.

    Anyway ,I'm going to check the show out because I love watching those home decorating shows anyway.

    I think they probably chose the Biggins family because they were likeable on Trading Spouses. The trouble with TV is, if they get good ratings for something they'll beat you over the head with a dozen more things just like the first, until you are thoroughly sick of the the whole mess. The Biggins family are sympathetic characters, albeit dysfunctional. I would imagine their neighbors are probably getting tired of the whole thing.

    My enquiring mind wants to know...Each of the families receive $50,000 and they are told how to spend ALL of it...who the heck is paying the taxes on the money?? I know if I won, I would have to put some of that money aside to pay the gift tax on it. But yet, these people are suppose to spend all of the money and no one yet has allowed any of the money to go for taxes.

    I really like the Biggins family and I'm excited for them. I can't wait to see this show! Just saw a preview tonight, and their new house is amazing! And how cute is Dr. Phil's son as a host.

    Mr. Biggins: "... and then I look up and it's like I ain't got no house no 'mo!"
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    I wonder if all of the families on Renovate my Family will be from Trading Spouses?
    ugh. I don't get time to watch TV anymore, much less hang out at the FORT.

    But don't you worry, I'll be back in full force on or about November 3rd.

    I'm glad it's the Biggins too. They deserve it.
    How funny is that new house gonna look right smack in the middle of the ghetto?
    Look, I love me most...If I could run across the beach into my own arms, I would.

    I'd honestly like to see the Cooke Family from last night's episode of Trading Spouses get this.

    Definately would LOVE to see that.

    All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.
