Russell is experienced in home design and reality TV, so you know you're in good hands when it comes to this show. And the fact that it puts a focus on working with a smaller budget for some bodes well for real life families or couples who need to make home renovations but don't have serious cash.
This isn't a show where a preschool teacher and an unemployed artist have a budget of $1.5 million, so it's much more approachable than some other similar HGTV series.
How do you get on 'Renovation Impossible'?
According to Pilgrim Media Group, the production company behind Renovation Impossible, all you have to do to be considered for the show is email RenovateCasting@gmail.com with details to help them determine if your case fits the bill for future episodes.
The website asks that you include "recent photos of you [and your partner], photos of the house, your phone number, and a brief explanation of why you need help from our renovation team." Alternatively, you can fill out the form on the website.
You also have to be 18 years of age or older and be available to film for the allotted time. As of right now, there isn't a date listed for future episodes, since Season 1 already wrapped, but the website will likely be updated after a renewal. Those who signed up for the first season were required to be available for up to 10 days of filming.
And although participants on Renovation Impossible are also required to provide their own budget or be eligible for a home improvement loan, the casting website says "the team can utilize and supplement" whatever the budget is. So it sounds like you could get some financial assistance from the show as long as you have capital of your own.
Who hosts 'Renovation Impossible'?
