Reality TV has been all the rage, and home improvement shows are becoming more and more popular right now. On TV, couples take a whirlwind trip to the home improvement store to pick up everything they usually need after the renovation has started. A host walks into a large home improvement store and chooses two seemingly unsuspecting people for a once-in-a-lifetime makeover in the backyard. Regular viewers of HGTV programming may think that all they need to do is spend a trip to the home improvement store.
For many HGTV reality shows, the main attraction is watching participants' lives improve with the help of success.
