10 Things You Didn’t Know About HGTV’s House Hunters
8. Pay Day
People who participate in the show receive a payment of $500, but those who appear on House Hunters International will make $1,500.
7. Behind the Scenes
Since the show is filmed as “reality-TV” their crew is small. There are only three people behind the scenes during filming — a camera person, an audio engineer and a director. On Pie Town Productions website they admit that while they film events as they happen, many things are staged in order to create the best production. For example, touring a house in 15 minutes might take several hours in order for them to get the best quality shots. Participants might have to re-shoot scenes several times or answer specifically designed questions in order to get the answer they want.
