Hate your kitchen? TV show seeks Minnesota fix-ups

Author:

Minnesota homeowners who find themselves moaning, "I Hate My Kitchen!" may be good candidates to get some economical help from a Minneapolis-based television production company producing a cable television show of the same name.

The Associated Press reports that Magnetic Productions, based in Minneapolis, is seeking what it calls "energetic homeowners" within 25 miles of downtown Minneapolis who are interested in receiving a full renovation at little or no cost in return for appearing on camera on the I Hate My Kitchen show on the DIY and HGTV Networks. Filming for the program's eighth season is set to begin at the end of January.

The show's website says the program "...gives homeowners hope with economical yet clever kitchen design ideas using amazing new products and cool tools. Forget about it costing a huge chunk of an annual salary to renovate your kitchen. I Hate My Kitchen tears up real homeowners' lives and their kitchens, showcasing along the way impactful alternatives that don't require loans, demolition or divorce."

Licensed contractor James Young hosts the show. His DIY Network bio describes Young as an Army veteran who is "hardcore when it comes to home improvement. He has remodeled a number of homes and over 30 kitchens, bringing them from ugly to awesome."

Homeowners who are interested should e-mail producers at kitchencasting@magneticproductions.com. They are asked to include photos of the offending kitchen and of themselves, along with a description about why they so dislike their kitchen.

Magnetic also produces "Rehab Addict," "Renovate to Rent," "I Hate My Bath" and the new Food Network series, "Buy This Restaurant."
