Lynch is rather fun to watch. And, oddly enough, even though she can be a little harsh at times, she's very quick to point out that her comments are about the houses, not the families. In one case, for example, she acknowledges that the family photos all over one wall in a house are cute -- but she still says they have to come down.

The hard part is that her most negative behavior -- particularly her frazzled meltdowns as her deadline approaches -- is also the most fun to watch. It's not full-scale abusive temper tantrums, but it's not exactly behavior you'd want kids engaging in when they're facing a tight deadline, either.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
