There are several negative messages about this show. First of all, Scott Yancey is greedy and always does the same things every time. He buys properties sight unseen, the complains loudly about the purchase. He always wants to fix them up on the cheap and make a fast buck. When things escalate beyond his estimation, he gets upset. He has a very negative personality that seems to use surface aggression to cover a perceived "fay" personality. He goes out of his way to prove how "macho" he is by constantly declaring that he is married to Amy, his Designer wife. He gets out of patience and gets condescending with workers and takes over by taking a sledge hammer to destroy something that could be removed carefully and reused. In the process, he wastes a lot of otherwise valuable materials. His wife, Amy is constantly touting the fact that she is "one of the best" designers in the business. If that is so, why isn't she working for an established firm? While her concepts are attractive, they tend to be extremely self-centered and trendy. While it is interesting to see the final transformation, the way they get there is filled with a lot of unnecessary drama based on a serious underestimation of time and a lack of communication. Just a Scott never wants to spend money on the fix ups, he ends up doing it anyway. This is particularly so with Amy's ideas, which are always the source for arguments. She is stubborn and listens to no one. She is confused about being an independent and strong woman, and being a professional. In fact, she loudly declares that she is "professional" especially when an agent made a frank observation about a shade of brown being a little too dark. I would have agreed with the agent, and am qualified having an art background. But perhaps the biggest negative about this show is the display of workers they hire. It's obvious that they hire Mexican workers on the cheap and then yell and scream at them because they are not certified craftsman and do shoddy work. Amy even made the derogatory remark to the site supervisor, "Where did you get these guys, in front of Home Depot?" Not only is that an indication of an underlying racist attitude, but a negative and potentially slanderous remark about Home Depot. If you've seen one show, you've seen them all. My only interest is in seeing what is done to transform the houses. But what is most concerning is the rushed jobs that are involved to meet Open House dates. Everything is for first impression "cosmetic" value. But the question is how long will this work hold up. This is particularly a serious issue considering that each of these homes sells for over $100,000. At that price, the buyer has the right to have the home and its upgrades last for several years. Lastly, Scott is writing a book. Based on what I see on this show, I would not think he would be the best person to advise the public on flipping houses given his history that is documented on this program, especially since one of his experiences landed him in the ER due to a heart attack.
