HGTV is looking for the most embarrassing room in America

Sometimes, bad decorating happens to good people. This is especially true when folks don't have the time or money to spend on major home improvement projects and aesthetic updates. Does this sound like you? Well, get your camera out and snap the most unflattering shots you can of your current living space. HGTV wants to redo your ugly and outdated living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms for a new television show.

So what qualifies as an embarrassing room? According to the casting release, the home improvement channel is looking for things like ugly peeling wallpaper, shag carpeting, horrifying dumpster-diving furniture, wood paneling, and decor best left in the past. If selected, your regrettable room will be given total makeover courtesy of HGTV.

Producers are looking for homeowners living in the Twin Cities and Hudson, Wisconsin areas. Entrants are asked to send a brief description of their awful room, pics of the space, and some family shots. Be sure to include your address as well. Materials should be emailed to [email protected] by Friday, April 26.
