To any HGTV fan, Andromeda Dunker has a voice that is instantly recognizable. Her gliding intonation and dulcet tone are as soothing as the comfort-food reality TV shows which she narrates.
Since 2009, Dunker has voiced literally thousands of episodes of the House Hunters franchise, becoming an integral part of the HGTV juggernaut, which drew almost 25 million primetime viewers each month last year.
While the buyers and cities may change, the narrator does not. Episode after episode, Dunker introduces us to a new couple and a new location but with the same sing-song intonation and honeyed tone. She is the show.
Yet, she hasn’t been seen on camera on the network, not even once.
On a channel brimming with handsome homebuilders and homespun husband-and-wife property stars, the woman who gives voice to some of the network’s most popular and obsessively-watched shows stands apart — unlike the others, she is heard but not seen, HGTV’s most famous unfamous person.
“I’ve remained in the shadows,” Dunker told BuzzFeed News. “The conventional wisdom for voiceover actors is you are kind of heard and not seen. It’s just kind of the way it’s always been.”
And she’s never given an extensive interview before — until now.
This house is everything we have ever dreamed of. It's $75,000 under budget, in a beautiful neighborhood, a reasonable commute time to work, and located in a fantastic school district.
but it doesn't have stainless steel appliances so instead of spending $3,000 for those appliances we're gonna pick the house that is over budget by $50,000, has fewer and smaller rooms,longer commute, noisy neighborhood with rude neighbors, all because it already has stainless steel appliances.
300k on house hunters: here’s a shack, you might be able to afford paint.
300k on fixer upper: here is an Irish castle that was moved brick by brick from it’s oceanside cliff. We can completely update it, with new appliances, and three pools. We’re also going to make it really personal for you and invite you to hang out at our cool farm.
300k on flip or flop: We bought this studio at an auction. It doesn’t have a ceiling, the walls have holes, and there is a family of racoons living in the floor. We’re going to cover everything in granite and sell it for a million dollars.
This is a 10 bedroom, 4 bathroom home with marble floors, a grand staircase, personal theater room, indoor and outdoor pools, and a view of one of the most beautiful beaches of Southern France.
I don't know the wall color is a real deal breaker for me :/
