Retta Road Trips to Hideous Homes in "Ugliest House in America: Ugly in Paradise"



Summer is the time to vacation and relax in beautiful places, but Ugliest House in America: Ugly in Paradise, premiering Sunday, July 24, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV and also available to stream on discovery+, will prove things can get ugly, even in paradise. Hosted by Retta, a home design enthusiast, as well as a comedian and actress known for her roles in Parks and Recreation and Good Girls, the series attracted nearly 11 million viewers to its freshman run. During the new five-episode season, Retta will take a road trip to five stunning destinations to visit 15 unsightly homes nominated by their owners and share her hilarious reviews of the astonishingly bad designs, cringe-worthy layouts and severely outdated styles. Based on its ugly appearance, poor functionality and hideous design choices, one house will be crowned the "ugliest house in America" by HGTV, and the network will award its owners a showstopping $150,000 renovation completed by Alison Victoria, one of its top stars, during a special one-hour finale episode.

"After having a blast on our inaugural trip visiting the worst of the worst in home design and making a friend in Alison, I was thrilled to hear that HGTV wanted to do it again," said Retta. "I got excited about getting back out on the road. And even more excited to watch another transformation from bad to badddd. (That may not translate in print, but give it a minute)."

In each episode, Retta will tour three homes where she will enthusiastically react to a plethora of bad design ranging from linoleum-covered walls and carpeted bathrooms to epic odors and pest infestation. Throughout the season, Retta will see the best of the worst in every region of the U.S. and help a lucky homeowner transform their hideous home into a showstopper.

"Folks will get to see more ugly homes, be introduced to some unfamiliar vacation locations and watch a new renovation that even outdoes the last one," said Retta.
