Malta -- Something sort of galled me at the beginning of the episode which we see every single time, but it got me to thinking. We know the whole deal is staged, and the people already have chosen a place. But it struck me as unnecessarily phony at the initial "meeting" when the realtor, of Malta, asks the clients, from the UK, "How much do you want to spend?" and they reply "One thousand dollars." No .. None of these people functions in any way in dollars, and it's just so faux to insult our intelligence by play-acting as if it meant something to them.
Given that the viewers are used to dollars, we still do know that in other places they have other currencies - HGTV, Why can't you have your clients reply in the currency of the place where they are, and show a streamer across the screen showing its equivalent in dollars?? It would make the 'story' a little more realistic, and we could figure out how much the amount is in our experience.
HGTV, anybody listening ?? I wonder if they ever did consider that ..
