Brian Kutz, who appeared on Season 7 after winning $200,000 from a scratch-off ticket, admitted that he was thrown off by the amount of times he had to walk into the same room and act surprised, but still spoke fondly of the experience.
“My wife and I had always watched that show before we won the scratch ticket,” he told the HeraldNet. “I used to joke we’d have David find us a house if we ever won.”
Unlike House Hunters, the families featured haven’t yet found the home of their dreams. According to Season 7’s Anthony Colligan, who was homeless before he scooped up $2 million in Louisiana’s Powerball lottery, David spent quite a bit of time with him looking for the perfect property.
“I tell you, we laughed and cut up and had so much fun,” the veterinary assistant told The Acadiana Advocate. “I didn’t know he was like that. I did not know… This was my first time hanging out with a celebrity, and it was a blast.”
In a 2018 chat with the New York Post, David noted that most winners don’t appear on the show the second they get their big checks. “A lot of winners get financial advisers and think it through before they call me,” he revealed. “They know I’m going to give them great deals and show them exactly what they want to see.”
