Fans of the new HGTV program are unhappy with some drafts as Melissa and Jenna scramble to repay a kind social worker
Kadee and Mynor are this lovely couple who are surprised by the hosts as they thought they were signing up for a random renovation project. Kadee, Mynor’s wife, nominated him for a home renovation. Kadee believes her husband, who works tirelessly for at-risk youth in Hollywood, deserves it. She wants to pay tribute and appreciate her spouse with the help of Melissa and her cousin Jenna.
Melissa and Jenna, a cousin duo from Illinois, this time support a social worker after a successful season premiere. However, some of the design choices made by the new HGTV hosts are being questioned by viewers.

Mynor comes from a large family with ten siblings. They had to grow up in great poverty. Mynor had to move from place to place as a child. His parents were both alcoholics, resulting in him and his siblings being placed in foster care. Her wife argues that he could easily have given up and thrown in the towel, leaving him with no purpose in life, but he didn’t. When the going got tough, he didn’t give up and kept going, pushing through and persevering. Kadee believes he deserves to be recognized and appreciated so others can understand how hard he has worked and what he has overcome.
Mynor is Director of Programs at Oasis of Hollywood, a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles, California dedicated to instilling hope, faith and promise in underprivileged children and youth. He was one of the kids who grew up in the program and received a lot of support. They were like an anchor for his family and guided them through the whole scenario. Growing up, Mynor felt a lot of anger and resentment, which led him down the wrong path for a while. He’s trying to live by his mother’s last words, “Just try to do good,” and that’s where his heart beats.
Their property needs a thorough renovation as it has become a home away from home for people they deal with such as teenagers and children who feel as a family away from their true family. Melissa and Jenna both believe their apartment exudes a rough vibe that contrasts with the couple, who are just nice and friendly. Mynor reveals his desire to own a bathtub where he can soak and relax his body while talking to the designer actors. The duo also admit to liking warm tones like moody greens and even brass. Mynor says his favorite room style is Mid-Century Modern. Melissa tells the couple that she would warm up the property and make it a comfortable landing spot.
Jenna wanted a better closet arrangement for the couple and improved lighting for the space as she discussed ideas for the remodel. Since the couple collects souvenirs, the hosts decide to incorporate them as well, but with something a little more unique. They also planned to gift the couple a bathtub as a surprise. They tell Brandon from the construction crew to demolish the “many” showers and start work on an entirely new bathroom. The goal was to hold the toilet. They also intend to remove the shelves to make room for a large shower and bathtub.
Melissa and Jenna sit with their design team member, Nicole, at a Los Angeles design studio, cocktails in hand, to explore ideas for the young, adorable couple. Since the bathroom layout is unusual, they want to tear it down and replace it with a single large wet room. They work on the tiles to get the desired mid-century look, which ultimately doesn’t sit well with viewers. They took to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the tile design. One fan wrote: “What’s that wall behind the tub? Except ugly I mean! #TheGreatGiveback Also the floor next to the toilet is bad too. WTF?”
Another fan tweeted: “Love the floor tile but hate the wall tile! Too busy. #TheGreatGiveback #livetweetcrew #onhgtv”
They also suggest building a black double vanity so they can both work on it. The bedroom in the handyman’s old Hollywood home seems to lack storage space, so they intend to move the bed to construct a system with drawers. The cabinet doors with their attractive hardware would give the impression of built-in storage. You are considering installing a custom dresser because there is no room for a traditional dresser. The finished result didn’t sit well with viewers, however, as one of them tweeted, “This DIY sideboard is literal… #TheGreatGiveback #livetweetcrew #onhgtv”
They decide to add texture to the walls to make the place stand out. The cousin duo eventually go on a bathtub hunt and have time to try them on by getting in and experiencing the real feeling. Melissa also decides to sew a large lumbar pillow for the newlyweds as a personal touch. She pulls out her school sewing machine and sews the pillowcase herself. Fans are stunned by the gesture, which they associate with Melissa working on her sewing machine while wearing her Adidas. One fan tweeted: “The fact that Melissa McCarthy uses a sewing machine she was given in middle/college while wearing adidas makes me like her more. Don’t ruin it for me with a little bit of information; I do not want to know. We’re all problematic.”
