Zillow Gone Wild Series to Premiere in May

Inspired by the popular Instagram account with nearly two million followers who love outrageous, one-of-a-kind homes, HGTV will premiere its newest real estate series, Zillow Gone Wild, on Friday, May 3, at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Beginning May 3, the series will also be available to stream on Max on the same day and time it airs on HGTV.

Host Jack McBrayer, the actor and comedian best known for his Emmy-nominated role in 30 Rock, will invite viewers to tour exceptionally weird, wacky, and wild properties that sellers put on the market every day.

“Everyone loves to scroll endlessly, looking at all the pretty houses for sale online,” said McBrayer. “But I’m on a mission to find out the story behind America’s strangest and most extraordinary homes. I want to meet the owners and, most importantly, see for myself what’s inside.”

Throughout the season, Zillow Gone Wild will feature the characters who have embraced non-traditional homes with their distinctive décor and imaginative architecture and reveal inventive ways to market a distinctive property. The series will explore each home’s unique history and the intriguing backstories of the buyers and sellers in nine weekly episodes.

Each home will be ranked based on attributes such as creativity, commitment to the theme, and special qualities. In the end, HGTV will proclaim which house is the “wildest” during the season finale.

Viewers can enter for a chance to win $25,000 by correctly guessing which home will be crowned the ‘Wildest House’ from the series. They can watch the penultimate episode of Zillow Gone Wild on June 21 at 10:30 p.m. ET to see the eight finalists and then visit to cast a vote for their favorite property starting at 11 p.m. ET.

All submissions that match the winning home in the finale episode on June 28 will be automatically entered in HGTV’s “Wild and Win Contest.”

Zillow Gone Wild will crisscross the country to find quirky houses, including the Berkeley, California, home designed by a jazz musician that features wall-to-wall gold accents and a pair of gold saxophone exterior columns or the historic New Orleans property that boasts a parlor lounge brimming with eclectic Big Easy charm. Regardless of the location, each place will offer astounding design elements and plenty of wow moments.

Zillow Gone Wild, hosted by Jack McBrayer, is produced by Asylum Entertainment Group.
