The Untold Truth Of HGTV's Farmhouse Fixer

Jonathan Knight's co-star on HGTV's Farmhouse Fixer, designer Kristina Crestin, likewise had some television experience under her tool belt before joining the show. As she recalled in an interview with Scout & Nimble, prior to Farmhouse Fixer she'd brought her talents for lovingly restoring heritage properties to the PBS series This Old House – arguably the great-grandaddy of home improvement shows. 

Participating in a season of This Old House, Crestin said, was "where I got my feet wet on being both the interior designer and then being the talent that has to carve out time to do the filming as well." According to Crestin, she loved the experience. "That was my moment of feeling like I wanted to do more," she added.

Crestin's appearance on the show didn't go unnoticed, and producers reached out to her. And while she had discussions go "through the first stages of Skyping and interviewing," no concrete opportunities emerged until she received a call about Farmhouse Fixer. Not only was the premise right in her wheelhouse, she and Knight were already friends. When she was pitched the show, she recalled, "the answer was OF COURSE!"
