We have to admit, we’re guilty of watching weekend marathons of HGTV’s House Hunters. We love the show, but honestly we can’t help but laugh at the scripted-feeling of the episodes and how there is always a similar storyline featuring a couple with opposing ideas of their dream home -- and apparently, we’re not the only ones who've noticed these trends.
Comedians Mark Sarian and Ari Voukydis poke fun at the popular television show in their new YouTube video "House Hunters: Park Slope". In this episode, Voukydis and his wife Betsy Stover have a budget of $387,000 to find their house and realtor Sarian is on the hunt to help them.
The threesome effortlessly act the part, mocking the couples on the show whose demands always seem to be a bit ridiculous. For instance, Sarian shows the couple a house that has a typical toilet with a hinged seat, and the two complain about having to lift it to go to the bathroom. “I just feel like you’ll get pee everywhere,” Voukydis says. (We’re laughing just thinking about this by the way).
