Your mom may have warned you never to go home with a stranger, but if you do it in New York City, you just may learn something--about real estate, anyway.
At least that’s the premise behind a new show on the SPACES YouTube channel called Take Me Home.
Hostess Arden Myrin (of "Chelsea Lately" and "MadTV" fame) stages herself in a different NYC neighborhood weekly, imploring random strangers to take her back to their apartments. (And I thought that's what Craigslist was for…!)
Once inside, Myrin--who comes across like a histrionic Cat Marnell on meth (wait, that’s redundant)--takes viewers on a tour of the willing victim’s apartment pointing out all that is noteworthy.
Why, you may ask?
"Our goal in making the show was to fulfill our voyeuristic need to see inside peoples' homes and satisfy our own curiosity as to whether we could guess the degree to which our personal style — our hair, our clothes, our demeanor – influences how we design our homes. ...it all came together over beers while people-watching in NYC," says Bradley Werner, vp of production and series development for DGB, the digital video company behind the channel.
