Love It or List It: 6 Behind The Scenes Secrets
4. David and Hilary Met at Their Audition
As we previously mentioned, David and Hilary have an extremely close connection and friendship, especially after filming together for so many years! These two complement one another so well, many fans are lead to believe they are actually married! We’d think they were old friends who at least worked together before, but David and Hilary actually didn’t know each other at all before they started filming Love It or List It. These two met at their audition. Hilary was picked first for the show, and after she was matched with a group of potential agents, David was her selected co-host! David said, “They called up and said, ‘You’re brilliant. We want you. We think you’re going to make Hilary look good.” And the rest is history!
3. Scripted Endings…?
Alright so this one is more gossip than a secret, but rumors have surfaced regarding the authenticity of the show, and I mean more than just upping the drama to make the show entertaining. Some people allege that producers film both endings of the family “loving it” and “listing it” and then selecting the one that best suits their purpose at the time of airing! All of this is supposedly done to keep the scores even between the show’s hosts Hilary Farr and David Visentin. Hilary has spoken out against the idea of faked aspects of the show: “The show is not at all scripted and the reactions of the homeowners to renovation realities and bad news is very real.”
