HGTV RENEWS 'UGLIEST HOUSE IN AMERICA'
STARRING ACTRESS AND COMEDIAN RETTA FOR SEASON TWO
New York (April 18, 2022) HGTV has renewed popular series Ugliest House in America, starring actress, comedian and self-proclaimed home renovation enthusiast, Retta, for a new season. The expanded order ups the number of episodes from five to six, including five half-hours and a one-hour season finale. The series, which attracted nearly 11 million viewers to its freshman run, will once again follow Retta as she takes a summer road trip to tour properties nominated by homeowners who believe their place is one of the worst in the country. Ultimately, the "ugliest house" will get a stunning $150,000 renovation by HGTV star Alison Victoria. Season two is slated to premiere in July.
"Retta is hitting the road once again - this time to highlight vacation destinations - as she searches for ugly houses in paradise," said Betsy Ayala, senior vice president, programming & development, HGTV. "Ugliest House in America is packed with unexpected comments and amazing expressions. Retta brings so much levity to the series as she celebrates the ugly alongside the homeowners. Everyone loves a good laugh and this show is full of them."
