For the past four years, Niecy Nash and the “Clean House” team have embarked upon a nationwide hunt for the messiest home in the country. From Boston to Los Angeles, with many stops in between, the crew visits clutter-challenged families until they finally arrive at the house with the distinct honor of being dubbed America’s messiest home.
Throughout the past four seasons the Style team has unearthed unprecedented floor to ceiling clutter that one has to see to believe. This year, new host Tempestt Bledsoe will take on the mission and bring viewers on a wild ride coast-to-coast to find the biggest “mess” ever!
Past winners of this distinct “honor” include the Loria family of Piscataway, N.J., Phil and Mindy Wheeler from Temple, Penn., and in 2009 the home of mother and daughter duo, Sharon and Brigitte Baglien in Cincinnati, Ohio. Last year, Style brought viewers to the home of the Hayes family from Lynwood, Ill., and the team discovered $5,000.00 in loose change among the mountains of mess, and held their largest yard sale to date!
Once the team arrives at the “messiest home” they roll up their sleeves and prepare for a complete floor to ceiling home makeover of each room in the house. Unwanted items are gathered and displayed at an enormous yard sale – filling upwards of 7,000 square feet! The proceeds of the yard sale are donated to a charity of the family’s choice and Style matches those profits for the renovation of the home. It is an emotionally and physically daunting challenge, but the “Clean House” crew is always able to get the job done, put these families back on track, and clean up America, one cluttered home at a time.
