Unfortunately for Lance Bass, things did not end up syncing up with his purchase of the house that is shown as the exterior for The Brady Bunch home. The former NSYNC singer has shared the story behind how he lost out on the property even though he placed the winning bid for the beloved abode. And this is what he had to say in the tweet he posted on his account:
Thankfully, Lance Bass' worst fears for the house will not be realized. It turns out the "corporate buyer" is none other than home décor network HGTV. Yes, the same network that houses Love It Or List It and Chip and Joanna Gaines' now-ended series Fixer Upper. Discovery CEO David Zaslav announced that HGTV is the proud new owner of The Brady Bunch house as part of one of the cabler's projects for HGTV, per Deadline.
What that project will exactly comprise is a mystery as of now. Discovery CEO David Zaslov did state that HGTV would restore the house to "its 1970s glory" and bring their resources to telling "safe, fun stories" about the house. With the news of HGTV's acquisition, the mystery surrounding who/what purchased The Brady Bunch house is officially solved.
All that's left is to find out is what HGTV will do with it. For his part, Lance Bass had revealed that he was planning to remodel the home, so the inside of it matched The Brady Bunch's version. It was an awesome plan that may or may not come to pass with HGTV now in charge of what happens to the house.
That said, it would be totally understandable if Lance Bass still had some hard feelings given the upsetting circumstances of how he lost out on the home. Well, it turns out Bass is taking the news like a total pro. He shared his thoughts on the news via Twitter, and HGTV had a fun response:
Lance Bass replied saying that if the network is looking for a host, he would be in to be it. Please, make him a host, HGTV! It would be a terrific gesture on the cable network's part given all that happened. Given the friendly nature of the exchange, that will hopefully be another announcement HGTV ends up making in the future.
The drama of the Brady Bunch house is officially settled for now. Here is hoping HGTV brings Lance Bass' vision for the house to life. Making the inside of the Brady house match the show's version of it would be a dream come true for many who grew up watching the series, yours truly included.
