Hilary Farr Love It or List It
Hilary and David Visentin co-host the HGTV show “Love It or List It.” Hilary, playing a designer, persuades the homeowners to improve their home, while David, playing a realtor, persuades them to sell their home.

Love It or List It Lawsuit
Hillary Clinton said in 2016 that the show is not scripted, but the same year, a couple who participated on the show sued the show, alleging that it was not only fake, but that they also wrecked their property with “cheap” improvements.
“The performance is scripted, with many performers and participants, including the homeowners, assigned roles and reactions. These characters are actors or television personalities portraying characters for the camera, and none of them had more than a minor involvement in the rebuilding process in this case.”
The case was filed against big Coat TV, a Canadian-based production company, and Aaron Fitz Construction, a North Carolina contractor hired to do the improvements.
“Not only were they victims of shoddy work, but they also suffered from a breach of contract, unfair trade practices in violation of North Carolina’s general contractor laws, and a “bizarre” business model that creates a “inherent conflict of interest” for a production company that makes the majority of its money on television advertising,” according to the lawsuit.
