Two-time “Survivor” player (and one-time winner) Wendell Holland has some big news to share — he just booked his own HGTV show called “Hot Mess House.” Here’s what you need to know about it and when it premieres.
Holland’s New Home Renovation Show Premieres June 17
In a new Instagram post, Holland shared the big news with his fans that he now has his own HGTV show called “Hot Mess House” and it premieres in just over a month.
Okay, the wait is FINALLY over! I’m here to announce that your boy is officially an @hgtv HOST!!!! Dreams do come true!! I’ve joined the amazing organization expert @clutterbug_me, and we’ve been working HARD at organizing and renovating 11 homes for #HotMessHouse, which begins June 17th on #HGTV! Set those DVRs, tell a friend to tell a friend (you just might see some of my friends on the show), and get ready to be INSPIRED to organize your own space!! Love y’all.
According to HGTV’s press release, the show features “organization expert and coach Cassandra Aarssen deliver[ing] life-changing home transformations for disorganized clients suffering from clutter and messiness.”
It continues, “Cassandra tours the unruly spaces with her clients and identifies their personalized organizing style. As she helps them clean out, Cassandra also will advise how to best manage the underlying emotional attachments that often lead to over-cluttering. Together with builder and craftsman Wendell Holland, they will update the rooms with customized renovations to set up the homeowners for tidy success.”
This is not Holland’s first foray into DIY television, but it is his first time heading up his own show.
Earlier this year, Holland premiered a one-off special on Discovery’s new streaming service called “Beach Cabana Royale,” where he and fellow designers Karla Graves and Delia Kenza competed against each other to design a cabana for a family.
He has also been taking part in “Home Town” hosts Erin and Ben Napier’s new mega-project “Home Town Takeover.” In an Instagram post about that appearance, he wrote, “I’ll be making something pretty sick. Thanks @erinnapier and @scotsman.co for calling me to come help out!”
