Netflix is really milking the concept and it would not be surprising if many other realtor companies put their name forward for some global publicity.
Netflix reality series Million Dollar Beach House season 1 will be out on the platform on August 26, 2020 – this review contains no spoilers.
After my repeated complaints about Selling Sunset, there’s no point in fighting anymore. We’ve lost — this is happening. Netflix did not think we had enough of brokers and agents fighting over properties. At the bottom of their barrel, they took out another premise — Million Dollar Beach House — and a nodding executive greenlit it.
But times are tough and although I am not the target market for this type of reality series, for many, it gives that trashy buzz. It’s drama that you can watch in awe knowing it’s not going to impact your life. Like Selling Sunset, Million Dollar Beach House is rather similar except this time, buyers and sellers are after holiday homes. With the former giving an all-female front, the latter gives an overwhelmingly male front with a female broker in the mix.
Netflix’s Million Dollar Beach House is not immediately all about the drama — it traps viewers into believing this is a genuine show about selling homes, however, once you get through an explanatory first chapter, sh*t comes down real quick. Drama seems to be quickly on the horizon. Everyone has work dramas but maybe a significant one once a year — this type of reality show has one a day.
Expect some fireworks, expect a homeowner giving a broker a b*tchy look for the way they have dealt with the house. We’ve all seen it before, but it’s been rehashed in a different area of the states. Netflix is really milking the concept and it would not be surprising if many other realtor companies put their name forward for some global publicity.
And if you think Million Dollar Beach House season 1 is going to be a one-off, think again. The first season purposefully leaves it all on a cliffhanger and ends rather abruptly. Hang on tight folks, we have a new Selling Sunset so expect your Facebook feeds to be filled with memes.
