Who pays for Breaking Bland renovations?

While neither HGTV nor Breaking Bland creators have revealed how the payments on the show work, yet, we do have some idea.

It is most likely that the show’s payments work in the same manner as the HGTV show Fixer Upper’s do. It is already revealed that the network does not pay for renovations on Fixer Upper. The couple or individuals whose houses get renovated are responsible for making the payments.

However, HGTV does usually pay for one of the bigger items of the house, as a bonus. This can include anything from an expensive dining room table to a pricey couch. But the network’s contribution is usually restricted to one piece of furniture.

Most other HGTV shows such as No Demo Reno, Farmhouse Fixer and etc reportedly follow this model, hence it is highly likely that Breaking Bland follows it too.

However, the homeowners are not supposed to pay the host/designer their design fees as HGTV covers the talent fee.
