Jim Weiker The Columbus Dispatch @JimWeiker The popular HGTV show "House Hunters" will showcase four central Ohioans Friday night, but the episode almost didn't happen."Family Seeks Perfect Party House in Ohio" chronicles Upper Arlington real-estate agents Terri Webb and Annie Means helping a Boston surgeon and her husband find a million-dollar home in the Columbus area.When the surgeon, who had accepted a job at Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center, met Webb and Means during the summer, she told the pair that "it's on my bucket list to be on 'House Hunters' one day," recalled Webb, a partner with Means at Street Sotheby's International Realty.After Webb and Means passed the video "audition," Webb said, the cable network gave the go-ahead for the show.First, though, the Boston couple had to find a houseAlthough "House Hunters" purportedly shows shoppers choosing among three homes, the subjects must actually already be in contract with one of the homes before filming begins.The couple entered into contract on a Worthington home, but, shortly before the HGTV crew was scheduled to arrive, the deal fell through on the house, forcing Webb and Means to scramble to get the buyers into another home in time.A day or two before the crew arrived, Webb said, the couple found another home."Once we were in contract, we could film," she said"We filmed for about a week, Monday through ThursdayThe amount of takes we had to do, that was mind-boggling..It was a fun, long, exhaustive process."The episode derives its name from the surgeon's preference for a large house suitable for hosting parties.This is at least the seventh time central Ohio homebuyers have been featured on “House Hunters” or its spin-offs, including “Tiny House Hunters.” jweiker@dispatch.com@JimWeiker  Never miss a story Choose the plan that's right for you.
