1) Lil Jon Wants to Do What?

Grammy award-winning producer, rapper, and DJ is coming to HGTV with his new home renovation series Lil Jon Wants To Do What? Also known as the "king of crunk," Lil John will work alongside expert designer and builder Anitra Mecadon to "channel his clients' design wild side while executing unconventional renovations they could never have dreamed up on their own."

The duo will meet with homeowners in Atlanta and breathe life into their homes by trying new renovation ideas and unique concepts ideated by the musician himself. The show is slated to release on Tuesday, May 2, 2022, at 10.00 pm ET on HGTV.

Lil John's passion for the home renovation began when his house in Atlanta got flooded. Unfortunately, the entire house had to be redone. Still, this period came as the perfect opportunity for the musician to explore his skills in home renovation and ignite his passion for starting his show based on the same.

Speaking about the show, he said to HGTV:

“I’m excited for fans to see a totally different side to me. I’ve always been passionate about design, so this show was a no-brainer. I get to bring my unique aesthetic and vision to all sorts of different families’ homes … let’s go!”

From the VIP sections of Dubai to the nightclubs of Miami, Lil John will bring designs for the renovation inspired by his travels. He prefers to think outside of the box and will not follow the mainstream trends that clog the pages of home design magazines.

2) Buy It or Build It

HGTV announced the home-renovation series Buy It or Build It, premiere on Wednesday, May 18, at 9.00 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV.

The television network's newest home renovation series stars Dallas-based twin brothers and contractors Chris and Calvin LaMont, who will help their clients decide whether to renovate their existing home by making interesting modifications or build a new one that is completely customized to their needs.

The duo arrived in Dallas, Texas, ten years ago with a passion for building and design, and today "they create stunning one-of-a-kind homes." Based on each client's budget and choices, Chris will find properties with potential and share how he can give the home a new look with their existing budget. While Calvin will share sketches of a newly built home with the clients at the same price point.

"Once their clients decide to buy or build, the siblings and business partners deliver the perfect dream home for each family."
