Ask the Producer: Episode 4

Another week, another round of questions for HGTV Star producer Loren Ruch. This week: Did they ever find Anne’s window treatments? And, it’s not your imagination…you’ve seen the clients before.

Ask the Producer: Episode 4

HGTV Star Producer Loren Ruch With Genevive Gorder and David Bromstad

Blog readers Danny and Aldo are sure they’ve spotted the clients, Kacey and Rossi, on other shows. Have they been on TV before? 
Danny and Aldo, you guys have an eye for talent! Rossi has actually worked as a TV host in his past, and Kacey is a singer/performer, so it’s very possible that you’ve seen them on TV before.

Were Anne and Jeribai’s curtains ever found? 
They were never found! It’s so funny to me that each season we end up with a “vortex” that eats at least one or two items from someone’s room. I honestly don’t know why or how it happens, but it happens every single year! And, by the way, I don’t think one of the other designers stole them.

What was your favorite on-set moment from episode 3? 
Behind the scenes, I loved watching the client meetings with the various teams. Obviously, Kacey and Rossi had never met any of our designers before, so seeing their reactions to some of them were really funny! They were looking at Brooks like he was from another planet, and meanwhile, his apartment was the winning one! I think they were also under the impression that Abby and Boris were going to totally nail it, and then they ended up not liking their room at all.

Like last week’s green room, did Tylor and Cris’ apartment have that “sickening green” effect in person?
Funny question! The paint color of Tylor and Cris’s apartment reminded me of “scrubs” that a doctor or nurse would wear! It was the last color I would ever want for a place of my own (and the panel agreed,) but it was nowhere near as bad as last week’s green room.

Have a question for Loren? Ask in the comments below! He may just answer you next week.
