Jonathan & Drew Scott, Property Brothers – HGTV

These identical twin hosts are more than entertaining. They actually educate viewers on how to get the best bang for their buck, turning fixer uppers into dream homes without breaking the bank or throwing in the towel every time an unexpected hiccup delays the project. Ultimately, this show is an education about the profits and perils involved when you get a “great deal” on a house that needs a lot of work. And it’s refreshing to watch hosts who are concerned about helping buyers be budget conscious instead of keeping up with the Kardashians.

Jason Silva, Brain Games – National Geographic Channel – Dubbed by The Atlantic as “a Timothy Leary for the Viral Video Age,” Silva’s awe and appreciation of Brain Games rings authentic.

Lara Spencer, Flea Market Flip – HGTV – The “Good Morning America” co-anchor makes upcycling cooler than anything in a Pottery Barn catalog.
