- HGTV Renovation Island follows the Baeumlers as they renovate a Caribbean resort.
- However, there’s a good chance they spent more than you think to get the job done.
Season 3 of Renovation Island is back and more entertaining than ever, and aside from admiring all the new episodes, fans are starting to wonder how much money has been spent on the Caerula Mar Clu makeover. After all, as fun as Sarah and Bryan Baeumler’s island adventures may seem – and as astonishing as the results are – they come at a cost. And not a single foot by HGTV, we might add.
As you may have seen in the Season 2 specials, the Baeumlers aren’t just stressed out about the normal and planned renovations to the resort, located on the south shore of South Andros. They are also facing the effects of COVID and Hurricane Dorian, which hit the Caribbean island just before COVID-19 closures and travel advisories went off. Together, these two roadblocks resulted in more renovations and fewer visitors, which both meant more money sucked into the project.
Which brings us to the question we all ask ourselves …
How much did the Baeumlers spend on Renovation Island?
According to reports, the Baeumlers have invested $ 10 million up front to renovate the island and transform the old Emerald Palms resort into the elegant Caerula Mar Club. While this is undoubtedly a big dime, two things should be kept in mind: First, before even appearing on HGTV – and earning a salary from the network – Bryan has touted a not too shabby net worth (we are talking in the approximate stage of $ 20 million). On top of that, it’s safe to say that he and Sarah have won checks for their appearances on the show.
It’s unclear if HGTV paid for anything at the resort, but it’s safe to assume that the show’s production is quite expensive. According to a Distract article, it would cost between $ 45,000 and $ 50,000 to produce a single episode of House hunters. If you use this rate to guess an approximation for Renovation Island, on the high end, we’re looking at around $ 650,000 per 13-episode season.
Even if the network does not put anything directly into the station, it of course pays the Baeumlers. Although their direct salaries are not known, the Baeumlers are in a unique situation, because Renovation Island is produced by Bryland Entertainment, which is owned by Bryan himself. This means Bryan has the option of negotiating his and Sarah’s salaries with HGTV himself, which could lead to even higher salaries.
All of this to say that even though he and Sarah have invested millions of dollars in securing the land and materials needed to bring their dream Caribbean resort to life, the couple are able to replenish their funds with big seasonal checks. .
