Plot Synopsis

AMERICA'S MOST DESPERATE KITCHENS is a half-hour reality series that follows cousins John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino as they help desperate homeowners in need of a major kitchen overhaul. In each 30-minute episode, the cousins select a 90-second video submission from one desperate homeowner, and then they travel to their home for a stunning kitchen transformation that will blow the homeowners away. In the series premiere, John and Anthony open up a worn and dated kitchen to create a huge living space perfect for entertaining while making treats in a beautiful bakers kitchen.
Season 2 of AMERICA'S MOST DESPERATE KITCHENS premiered on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 from 8-9pm ET/PT, as HGTV debuted back-to-back new episodes. The new season showcases Anthony and John as they tackle a new round of ambitious kitchen remodels. New projects include a modern industrial kitchen makeover with results fit for a chef; a tiny galley kitchen transformed into a massive entertaining space for family gatherings; and a farmhouse kitchen update that features locally sourced materials, such as rustic Shaker-style cabinets and vintage hardware. In the season opener (8pm), "Retro Mod Kitchen and Bar," John and Anthony transform a tiny galley kitchen into a massive entertaining space as the wall comes down to join the living room, and the dining area becomes a bar. A huge island centers the space with a built-in range and bar seating. The cousins add custom touches to the space, including a metal pantry door and hexagon tile that runs from the backsplash to the floor. Then, in the night's second new episode (8:30pm), "Rustic Chef's Kitchen," the cousins give a dated Atlanta kitchen a modern industrial facelift fit for a professional chef with a professional grade range, a massive movable island and two-tone cabinetry. They top off the design with framing studs from a 1920s Atlanta home and old barn wood, which become storage baskets and a custom dining table.
