Jonathan Knight, star of HGTV‘s Farmhouse Fixer still has “the right stuff” and is sometimes reminded about his New Kids on the Block fame while working on one of his historic property jobs.
Knight told Showbiz Cheat Sheet he grew up with home renovation in his blood and that his father instilled a love of home renovation and repair as a kid.
And while he was part of the iconic boy band that shaped the music scene, Knight turned back to his first love – home renovation – after New Kids broke up.
Knight insisted that most of his clients play it pretty cool when they meet him. But Farmhouse Fixer co-host, designer Kristina Crestin laughed and said some clients don’t hold back.
In fact, she and Knight recalled one instance where it wasn’t a client, but a contractor who worked nearby and hilariously trolled them when they were working on a project.
