LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Alison Victoria will debut in “Kitchen Crashers” Monday, DIY Networks reports to news. But is television programming ready for another “Crashers” show? With DIY Networks and HGTV equally splitting the “Crashers” TV brand across their two channels, the premise of the latest show appears to be redundant.
For seasons, fans have adored Yard Crashers featuring Ahmed Hassan. Hassan repairs yards and patios in need of desperate makeovers. And there is the always charming Bath Crashers featuring Matt Muenster. In a recent episode, Muenster put a remote control in a Seattle bathroom not just for a special television but also for an automatic shower and sinks.
While the broadcaster clearly had the “Crashers” brand making sense with Muenster and Hassan, viewers always got a bit perplexed with House Crashers featured Josh Temple. In constant episodes, when Temple confronts “unsuspecting homeowners in the home improvement store”, shoppers frequently told Temple they know about Hassan but have never heard of him. They frequently ask if Temple does Yard Crashers, prompting a hilarious disgust by Josh.
On House Crashers, Temple redoes rooms and kitchens. So what has the broadcaster done recently? It’s added Room Crashers with Todd Davis and now Kitchen Crashers.
So why does the broadcaster need a Kitchen Crashers when it was crashing kitchens with House Crashers featured Temple, and Room Crashers featuring Davis? The answer is not so clear. While DIY calls Kitchen Crashers a new show premiering this Monday, it appears to be just the same show, in the same room, with a different host.
