HGTV made history by featuring a throuple on the latest episode of House Hunters — and viewers are here for it!
On Wednesday, February 12, the network streamed an episode titled “Three’s Not a Crowd in Colorado Springs,” featuring three polyamorous homeowners, Brian, Lori and Geli, on their quest to find their dream Colorado home.
The trio spoke candidly about their dynamic and admitted they wanted to find a house that fit their needs. Among their list of must-haves was a three-car garage, a master bedroom that fit three people, and space for Brian and Lori’s two children.

While searching for their ideal home, the three came across a house with a relatively small kitchen. “This is a couple’s kitchen,” Lori said, “not a throuple’s kitchen.”
Eventually, they chose a beautiful house that — while it was above their initial budget — had a lovely mountain view.
As was detailed in the episode, Brian and Lori were already legally married to each other when they met Geli at a bar and fell in love with her. After that, both Brian and Lori exchanged vows with Geli in a commitment ceremony attended by their children.
HGTV viewers were stunned to see the network feature a throuple in one of their episodes — and many praised them for their brave decision.
