The Alphabet According To HGTV Addicts

O is for "open concept," obviously.

C is for Charm

"Charm" is an indescribable trait that any slightly artsy couple has on their must-have list. Like who wants a cookie cutter house anyway? "Charm" MUST include granite countertops, an open concept layout, and stainless steel appliances, though.

D is for Divorce

I image something like 90% of couples who appear on House Hunters must end up in divorce. They really should have substituted crown moulding for close proximity to a divorce attorney on their must have list.


E is for Entertaining Space


A lie people say to make it look like they have friends. Honestly, the first and last time these people entertain is when the show is filming the ending where they make salad and drink wine and their kids run around the yard.


I is for Interior Design


I honestly feel horrible for the designers on these shows. Either they have shitty budgets that get eaten up by horrific mold that the homeowners neglected, or they have couples that change their mind every minute. At least the houses look stunning when they're finished... before the staged furniture gets removed.


M is for Moving

Something couples can never agree on. For such a big life change, you'd think a couple who had been together over 20 years could agree on such a thing...

N is for Neighborhood


Aka the thing couples refuse to move or look outside of. Like, ever. Has there ever been an episode of Love It or List It where a couple wants to move outside of their "preferred neighborhood"?


Q is for Questionable Wish List Items


Peoples' wish list items are rarely logical. Either they don't match the budget or they're just downright strange. A man cave in an Italian apartment? Okay, Rob. A place for your turtles? Sure, Beth.


V is for View


A view is a must-have for any couple buying international. Sure, the house is falling apart and doesn't have a modern kitchen or enough room for your eight kids, but look at those mountains!

X is for... (E)Xtra

Some people are so extra on these shows, they're too much. Do you really need an craft room just to make bows, Karen?



It's the feeling you get when you successfully guess which house a person is going to pick. Bonus points if you guess whether they’re going to Love It or List It, cause you know it’s fake AF.
