'House Hunters' Featured Their First Throuple Ever

Source - With 17 seasons under its belt, House Hunters made HGTV history on Wednesday when it featured its first throuple — three people in a polyamorous romantic relationship — on one of its episodes.

Titled “Three’s Not a Crowd in Colorado Springs,” the episode followed Brian, Lori and Geli on a quest to find their dream house in Colorado.

The trio wanted to find a new home that will accommodate their unique dynamic as well as provide space for Brian and Lori’s two children.

As with any episode of House Hunters, the family came armed with a list of must-haves for their new residence, including a three-car garage and a master bathroom that will accommodate three people.

At one point in the episode, Lori remarked about the lack of space in one house they were touring, saying, “This is a couple’s kitchen, not a throuple’s kitchen.” 

Brian and Lori, who are legally married, fell in love with Geli after meeting her at a bar. 

I'm surprised I had to find out about this from reading it online, since, like a lot of married guys, I'm a bit of an HGTV widower. At any hour of the day or night, there's some couple I don't care about shopping for a place to live that I'm not interested in, at some location that has no appeal for me. And my adorable Irish Rose watches approximately 95% of them, while I excuse myself to go rewatch "Parks & Rec" episodes for the fifth time. 

And I'm truly sorry she and I both missed this one. Because I am genuinely interested in the logistics of how this throuple thing works. It's hard enough to get any of the couples on these shows to agree on what they want. Main road or neighborhood. Their budget. Big house that needs work or smaller place that's ready for moving in. Old place or new construction. Closet space. How many baths. How big is the kitchen, etc. Shows like 'House Hunters' are essentially nothing but two people in a committed relationship sussing these decisions out. I can't imagine how exponentially harder it must be when your marriage is a committee. 

Hell yeah, you need a three car garage, a big master bathroom and a throuple kitchen. Just for starters. You're going to need a king size bed, obviously. Room for three dressers. More closets than the Queen has. And probably a whole extra wing onto the house where the kids rooms are so they're not hearing your orgy sex. Not to mention all your orgy bedspreads, new curtains, shag carpeting and weirdo lighting:

So yeah, I'm all in on this one. It should be fascinating. And a real insight into the throuple lifestyle as this thing becomes the new norm in America. 

Speaking of which, if you remember last October when we got to know freshman congresswoman Katie Hill (D-CA) who was in a throuple relationship before having to resign over Nazi tattoos and bong hits:

I'm not giving Katie credit for popularizing the Throuple Life, but she's kind of taking a victory lap for this 'House Hunters' episode:

Which, if true, is more than most members of Congress accomplish in their whole careers. And she pulled it off without finishing her first term. So congrats to her on being a true social pioneer.
