The first few days of 2023 are guaranteed to be pretty ugly for HGTV viewers. The network just announced that the entire new season of its hit show Ugliest House in America, hosted by comedian Retta, will air in full during the first six days of the new year. Here’s the full rundown…
Retta is ready to find another ugly house to be remodeled by Alison Victoria
In Ugliest House in America, host Retta, an actress and comedian who has also appeared on shows like NBC’s Parks and Recreation and Good Girls, travels across the United States visiting homes that have been built by their owners to… most popular include ugly houses in the country. Retta makes funny comments as she tours each home, judging them on three criteria: ugly looks, poor functionality, and surprising design choices. The worst of the bunch is getting a $150,000 makeover designed by Windy City Rehab host Alison Victoria.
In an unconventional scheduling move, HGTV has announced that season 3 of “Ugliest House in America” will air nightly from Sunday, January 1 through January 5 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern, with an hour-long season finale airing on Airing Friday, January 6 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. The network did not explain its reasons for the compressed schedule.
Over the six episodes, Retta will visit 15 homes in five regions and look at all sorts of wild design possibilities, including questionable murals, deep-pile carpets, velvet wallpaper, and shellac wood paneling.
“We’ve all seen those magazine-worthy homes that make you feel bad about your own home,” Retta said in a statement. “It’s not that show!”
Retta shares some of the strangest things she’s seen in America’s ugliest homes
The first two seasons of “Ugliest House in America” both aired in 2022, with the first season debuting in January and drawing 16 million viewers, according to HGTV. Shortly after its six-episode second season premiered in August, the network announced that it had already ordered a third season to air in early 2023. The second season attracted 11 million viewers over the summer.
Fans love seeing the fully renovated homes that transform Victoria and her crew from beasts into beauties. During season two, Retta toured homes in places that felt like “paradises,” including the winner’s home in Palm City, Florida.
Viewers may remember that it was the house with very little privacy. It featured an octagonal roof so none of the interior walls reached the top of the ceiling, allowing sound to travel from room to room, including the bedrooms. The final reveal was in an Instagram clip shared by West Landscape, which helped transform the courtyard of the home.
But fans also love hearing about the fun things Retta has seen along the way. For example, when the comedian appeared on “Late Night With Seth Myers” on July 27, she said she couldn’t believe how many homes she’s seen have carpet in their bathrooms.
After discussing the creepy, nature-inspired decor she’d seen in some homes, Myers asked, “What’s the ugliest non-animal and snake themed thing you’ve seen?”
“Well, one of the things that drives me crazy,” Retta began, “is that I can’t get over how popular carpet has been in bathrooms. carpeted floor. Not carpets. carpet floor! And not every bathroom has a fan. So I go in there and I’m like, ‘Have you checked for mold?’ And they said, ‘No, we never…’ and I said, ‘We have to close it!’”
Season 3, Ugliest House in America, not only premieres on January 1, 2023 on HGTV, it’s also available to stream on Discovery+.
