In 2004 Preston Elliot and his wife, Rachelle were chosen to be compete on "Trading Spaces" and the whole morning show moved to his neighbor's house while the show was being filmed.
Quick review: On "Trading Spaces" two sets of neighbors traded houses and redecorated one room in other's home. They were given two days and $1,000 to finish the project.
To get ready for the premiere of the 2018 re-boot, TLC ran a marathon of old episodes. First up? Philadelphia. And our notifications exploded:
*This was filmed during the time we've affectionately dubbed "Fat Preston Years." We are all aware of the amazing transformation our host has made, please keep the comments to yourself*

@prestonelliot. Binge watching old episodes of Trading Spaces found accidentally while perusing Guide. First up? Philly from 10/2004. More eps and Countdown to New Season; then first episode of new season with all the same people. I think this may be just what America needs.
