House Hunters: Home for the Holidays Cast: Who’s in it?
House Hunters: Home for the Holidays is hosted by Andromeda Dunker, who is working for the show since 2009, but she has only been heard, never seen. “Part of my job is to be in the background,” Dunker told about her work on the show. “I’m not really with you, but I am leading you through this journey as a narrator. That’s kind of how I see it. If I were to come out more as a personality of my own, then it kind of breaks it. I’m not sure it would work as well.”
For eight years, Dunker has given voice to over thousands of episodes for House Hunters series, becoming an integral part of HGTV. Her voice has soothed millions of people, not only during the show but also during their bedtime.
“A lot of people have told me that they watch it in the background or at night and it lulls them to sleep … I’ve had a lot of people tell me that I’m tucking them in at night or that I’m giving them a big hug.” She told Buzzfeed.
“I’ve remained in the shadows,” Dunker told. “The conventional wisdom for voiceover actors is you are kind of heard and not seen. It’s just kind of the way it’s always been. My first year [in 2009], we did not know there would be so many shows and spinoffs,” Dunker said. “There was only just House Hunters and House Hunters International at that time, and not every day like how it is now. There have been like ten spinoffs now. So I had no idea it was going to explode into this much work.”
