The series which aired on July 9th is a tear-jerker so get the tissues at the ready. But first, let’s find out who pays for the renovations…

Who pays for the Secret Celebrity Renovation?
The show which sees many big-name celebrities surprising the individuals who helped them to get to their success, has not yet definitively said who pays for the renovations.
However, it is likely the celebrities themselves pay for the renovations. CBS has described the experience as a gift from the celebrities to the homeowners in repaying them for the help and influence that they have previously received.
In the third episode of the series, we can see NBA all-star Chris Paul on his journey into renovating his grandmother’s house.
Featuring a preview clip of Chris’s episode, host Nischelle Turner’s Instagram’s post is captioned: “It was a no brainer who he wanted to do a renovation for! (He tried to buy her a new house she said NO!)”, indicating instead of purchasing a new home, Chris has helped for the renovation cost.

It’s worth noting that the celebrities themselves are highly involved in the renovation process taking place on the show.
From knocking down walls to painting them, the part that celebrities play may just be a helping hand rather than a payment.
