Lara decides the winner

Season 8, Episode 6. Rainy Day Flipping. One team selling a motorcycle fender table looked to be ready to accept $100. Lara stepped in whoa, whoa, whoa. Wanted 2 bills, buyer countered $175, then Lara countered $185, then buyer offered $180, and selling team accepted. That team won show by $15. If I were on the other team, I would demand $5000 because her interference resulted in their loss. She is the wrong person to host the show. Bogus!!

Lara almost always seemed to be in control. I agree that the other cpl. Should have demanded the win or even sued big time.

The host

Stop letting the host decide for the contestants! Todays show, Lara Spencer told them what to buy and make both. Try someone who can keep their opinions on designs out. I quit watching for that reason.

The host is obnoxious.

It's like she has to have everyones attention on her all of the time. She regularly uses I me and my. She tries to make jokes but she is not funny at all. The show should be about the contestants but Lara tries to control everything, the purchase, the rehab and the sale. The show is fun, but, I am glad there is a mute button for when Lara talks.

Unfair

Love watching the remakes, but Lara should not get involved in what they pick, how they remake and how much they receive for their items. Its a contest!!!! Just watched a show where Lara got involved in the price of the last item sold. The father and daughter would have won if she didnt get involved with the price the other couple received for their item. Very unfair show. Tell her to not get involved!!!!!

I agree 100% about Lara getting involved! It IS A CONTEST between the teams, not HER and the teams.

She should keep her opinions/suggestions to herself and let the contestants do their own thing with their OWN ideas!

I like the show, but not the intrusion of Lara!! Make her stop!

Unfair involvement

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
We just watched the show that came down to the two lamps. As Lara said, "Down to the wire". She totally through the game off by actually telling the two sisters the PRECISE amount ($300) they were down by. That gave them the full advantage to know how much they needed to sell by. I was floored. I am seriously considering not watching any future episodes and I think if I see Lara on any other venue my immediate response is a negative "Oh...her". Sign me disgusted..

Preferred solution: Require Lara to stay out of it

User's recommendation: Admit on air unfair advantage given, give the other couple $5k, consider removing Lara

Totally agree - Flea Market Flip should be ONLY about the two teams - what they buy - how THEY renovate it and how THEY sell it. Plus when the teams are out BUYING, they are on such a time restraint, they do NOT have the time to talk with her when they are out shopping.

i totally agree. Lara should NOT get involved.

Just let the contestants do what they want. She can point out the good points of a project to customers but not do the negotiations.

I really enjoy the show. I get so mad at Lara for always putting in her two cents worth.

It's a show about two teams competing not for her to come in and make a deal or ask the dealer the price on a piece when the team doesn't know if they want it. I think Lara is very talented and energetic but maybe a new host that would only offer a suggestion now and then.

I sometimes think she is rude to the contestants. It's a great show and I love the ideas but a new host might be better.

Lara interfering in flea market flip contests

She is constantly pushing her suggestions, ideas and negotiating for contestants , interfering in the ultimate outcome of the contest. She should not do that because ultimately she is altering the outcome. I really get tired of her interference. Other than tha, she is a good hostess.
