Run My Renovation, hosted by carpenter Joannie Dodds and licensed contractor John DeSilvia asks homeowners to turn their renovations over to DIYnetwork.com users to make all the design decisions through online voting, leaving homeowners with no say at all, and giving viewers the chance to be armchair contractors.
