Q. What were your biggest building challenges?
A. One of the biggest challenges was moving the big items like the refrigerator, sofas and the enormous 600-pound tub into the house. The home is very narrow in some spots, so getting things around corners was backbreaking. I'll put it to you this way: I hope the winner REALLY enjoys the air hockey table on the third floor. The outdoor shoot with Dean and Derek was quite challenging. Temperatures reached 90 degrees with high humidity. We got a little delirious and punchy after the third day − it made for some good entertainment.
