ya i guess they could have done it for another family. But these guys also needed it. They needed to become closer as a family, get healthier, change their lifestyles (emotionally and physically), and need a new home. Maybe the $22 000 was spent for the show..or maybe it wasn't enough for what they wanted..didn't most people pick them to be the first renovated family? I dunno..I'm just happy for them.
THE COOKE FAMILY DEFINITLY NEEDS IT..they should be next!
