For the record, House Hunters has given host Suzanne Whang the old heave-ho—despite what your ears may be telling you.
Interviewed on Olivia Wilder Times, the comedian helps clear up some confusion about who’s been narrating recent episodes of the long- running HGTV reality series.
“I [hosted House Hunters] for almost a decade, and I left about a year ago. But they will show my reruns in perpetuity, I’m sure,” Suzanne sniffs to host Olivia Wilder.
“They have apparently hired someone to do the voiceovers— who fans of mine are claiming is some woman who is trying to sound like me.
“But all of my true fans say, ‘We know that it’s not you,’” continues Suzanne, who has also done guest turns on Two and a Half Men, Brothers & Sisters, Boston Legal and other hit shows.
Suzanne then adds that her House Hunters exit wasn’t solely a cost-cutting move on her former employer’s part.
“There is a philosophy that the hosts of the HGTV shows have nothing to do with [the shows'] success. If you disagree with that, you can write to HGTV, through their website,” she says.
“Now, that might have just been a contract-negotiations sort of a thing to say, but of course my fans and friends and family would beg to differ with them.
“That’s why you see this whole wave of going from shows with hosts to shows with hosts that aren’t even on camera; they’re just on voiceover.
“Maybe they’ll eventually take the voiceovers away too. Who knows?”
