Subpar Contracting

The suit called into question the subpar contract work among its complaints. It also used language that exposed the show’s editing process in hopes of garnering more ratings.

“The show is scripted, with ‘roles’ and reactions assigned to the various performers and participants, including the homeowners,” the suit said. “The characters are actors or television personalities playing a role for the camera…” The couple would eventually settle out of court with the production company.
