HGTV’s No Demo Reno and local designer Jenn Todryk will be back for a third season in summer 2023.
Applications are being accepted from homeowners in Lucas, Allen and McKinney, according to a flyer Todryk posted to her 1.2 million Instagram followers.
Todryk takes on three- or four-room projects and comes up with ways to make the rooms more livable without knocking down walls.
Construction costs are higher for this season. Applicants need $100,000 to $250,000 to spend on their projects, and they need to clear out and live somewhere else for eight to 10 weeks. Todryk, who’s a busy mother of three small children, will film 12 episodes.
Dallas-Fort Worth homeowners still have a lot of equity in their homes, and prices have continued to rise even though sales have slowed with higher interest rates. Local home flipping activity has cooled some, according to recent data from Attom Data Solutions.
Todryk earned it
HGTV confirmed the new season Monday and said the second season of No Demo Reno attracted more than 18.4 million viewers, which made it a top three non-news/sports cable program among women ages 25 to 54 and upscale women 25 to 54 during its run.
“Watching the energy and positivity that Jenn brings to all aspects of her life in No Demo Reno is like a breath of fresh air,” said Betsy Ayala, senior vice president, programming and development for HGTV. “Her passion is palpable, and her unique design vision gives our home-obsessed audience new and different ways to approach renovation. More great ideas are in store for millions of her fans with this large episode order.” Prior seasons can be viewed on Discovery+.
North Texas entrepreneurs
Native Texan Todryk was raised just south of Fort Worth in Burleson and studied fashion merchandising at Tarleton State University. Later, as a young mother, she blogged about her life, and one post captured the attention of a book editor. She continued to draw a following as she wrote about her own home DIY projects, which led to a hit pilot on HGTV. She’s also an active influencer who recommends products on her own Amazon.com page.
Jenn’s husband Mike Todryk owns the Armor Coffee Co. on Stacey Road in Allen.
The Todryks launched a weekly podcast in September called You, Me & Mike. They talk about how they met, their relationship, family and entrepreneurship. In last week’s episode, they explained how Mike shifted careers and they started Armor Coffee.
On social media, the couple has hinted that they’re ready to open craft beer maker Armor Brewing Co. soon, also in Allen. Naturally, Jenn Todryk designed the interior of the brewpub, according to Armor Brewing’s Facebook page.
