About This Quiz
To know "House Hunters" is to love it. When that signature jingle plays and you hear that high-pitched, inquisitive voice of the unseen host, you know you're about to have a good time. Watching the show is like stepping into a weird dream where people have extremely high budgets with obscure jobs you didn't even know existed and desire things in a home that no one in their right mind would put in a house. But that's what makes it so addicting. We all like to think we would act differently on the show but in reality, you know you'd be asking your significant other where they're going to put all their clothes because you'll take up all the closets. (There are the rare occasions where the couple is super down-to-earth and just wants a nice home to share together. Maybe they plan on having kids there, or perhaps they just have a couple of fur babies to take care of. But, honestly, those are the least interesting episodes!)
Really thinking about how you would handle being on "House Hunters" can tell a lot about what kinds of projects you're ready to take on in your own life. Pretend to be on the show and we'll guess your next renovation project!
