‘The Christmas Light Fight’ Season 7 Preview
There are several families who will be competing on season 7 of The Christmas Light Fight. In each hour-long episode, four families will dazzling household displays will compete, and the winner will get a whopping $50,000 cash prize, as well as the coveted Light Fight trophy.
Carter Oosterhouse and Taniya Nayak are returning as hosts, and they told ABC 11 that fans will be treated to the most impressive displays they’ve seen yet. “I have one where they put up six million lights! Six million lights,” Nayak gushed. “And that’s what you’re going to see on this season.”
“There’s this Light Fight community, and they all help each other out,” Nayak added. “One Light Fighter might reach out to someone in another state that’s done it before and they’re all so helpful to each other. All of them, so far, that I’ve worked with have taken their lights down after it’s over and then put them back up.”
Oosterhouse revealed that viewers will get to tour the inside of some of the homes to check out the interior decorations as well. This is the first time that the series will incorporate interior decoration as part of the competition. “One big change for this year, we’ll actually get to tour the inside of some homes to check out their interior decorations,” he said. “When people invite random people off the streets into their homes, that’s crazy, that’s committed. It’s committed to the display and to the holiday season.”
Oosterhouse also commended the season 7 contestants for their incredible dedication. “Most people are so dedicated that they are in it to win it every single year,” he explained. “They are committed, they want to change it year after year, make it bigger, brighter, better, and that’s why we showcase them.”
