Dog’s Home Makeover Show ‘Too Fluffy,’ Say Critics
In an era of extreme home renovation, property flipping experts and reality TV about the harsh realities of real estate, domestic guru BIBI the Pomeranian’s new HGTV offering “Fluff It Up” has left critics unimpressed.
“The network bills it as a design aspiration series,” says Kimberly Cather, a TV critic for E! Online. “But every episode is BIBI just going to Target and buying the fluffiest things she can possibly find. She comes back to the client’s house and just tosses the fluff everywhere haphazardly. Rinse, lather, repeat, and you’ve got a whole season of, well, fluff.”
Ian Jackson, entertainment reporter for People Magazine agrees. “There was one show where she gave a chair a ‘makeover’ by draping a feather boa on the back. That was it. That was the whole show. I mean, I know reality TV has gotten bad. But, come on.”
Subsequently, Jackson added, “Seriously.”
