We love a host who not only cleans up your house, she cleans up your act, too. Nash — equal parts glamour girl, girl next door and get-it-done girl — is a tornado who sucks the clutter out of regular folks’ homes with glee. A consummate multitasker, Nash ably performs the roles of clutter controller, organizational expert and armchair psychiatrist for her subjects. Whether she’s working with a single mother who’s been shopping to fill a void in her life or a couple that literally can’t find their kitchen table under the pileups, Nash straightens out their houses and, in many cases, their lives, all while dishing about a funky hat she uncovered or the head of house’s job woes.
