This was a first for House Hunters. In the episode titled "Three's Not a Crowd in Colorado Springs," soon-to-be homeowners Brian, Lori, and Geli searched for the perfect home to accommodate three people.
The trio was searching for a home that would work well with their relationship dynamic, as well as have enough space for Brian and Lori's two children. As will all episodes of House Hunters, they came equipped with a list of must-haves for the properties they'd be seeing. They were hoping to find something with a three-car garage and a large master bathroom.
At one point, Lori cracked a joke about the kitchen: "This is a couple's kitchen, not a throuple's kitchen." Onto the next one!
Brian and Lori are legally married, and fell in love with Geli after meeting her at a bar. They are now in a polyamorous relationship and held a commitment ceremony where they exchanged vows as a trio.
At the end of the episode, they chose a house above their budget because they just couldn't resist the view of the Colorado mountains.
Viewers were impressed with HGTV's commitment to including diverse couples in their episodes, and the show was called "progressive" and "educational."
