Secret Celebrity Renovation
Matt Roush says...
Let’s Make a Deal’s Wayne Brady returns kindness for kindness in the debut of a series in which famous names in entertainment and sports pay back someone who helped set them on the road to fame with a surprise home renovation. For Brady, this means a trip back to Orlando, FL, to give his nurturing Aunt Lilly a dream home makeover. Lest you think this is a ripoff of HGTV’s successful Celebrity IOU, CBS points out that this reality series has its roots in a series of Superstar Renovation specials dating back to the network’s weekend afternoon sports block in 2018, when athletes gave back to their hometown mentors. Future participants include Paula Abdul, Boomer Esiason, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Emmitt Smith, In the Heights’s Anthony Ramos and Survivor fixture “Boston” Rob Mariano.
