Trading Spaces is credited with sparking a nationwide interest in home decorating and the rise of home improvement television series. Ahead of TLC’s reboot of the beloved show, arriving in 2018, TV Line reunited some of the original cast for a quick game of Where Are They Now.
Host Paige Davis, carpenters Ty Pennington and Carter Oosterhouse, along with designers Doug Wilson, Genevieve Gorder, Hildi Santo-Tomas, Vern Yip, Frank Bielic and Laurie Smith give a brief rundown on their lives since leaving the series. Frank’s quick summary cracked me up. Check it out below.

The reboot also has some new blood in the mix. If you watch HGTV, you’ll certainly recognize a few of them. Sabrina Soto (House Hunters, HGTV Star and The High Low Project), former model John Gidding (HGTV’s Curb Appeal) and Kahi Lee (Design on a Dime) have been enlisted as designers. The latter’s clients include Nick Jonas, Chris Brown and Gabrielle Reece to name a few.
The show is also adding two new carpenters- former MMA fighter Brett Tutor and America’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 runner-up Joannie Sprague. The latter has also appeared on DIY Network’s Run My Renovation and Man Caves.
