HGTV 'Beat the House' season finale: Southern star shares thoughts

The one-month run of HGTV's "Beat the House" realtor reality show will end on Jan. 28 when the final episodes are aired at 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET. In advance of that moment, however, the show's Southern born and bred star, Joanna "JoJo" Floyd Jones shared her feelings with the Atlanta Top News Examiner via an email sent by the media company representing her.

The Macon, Georgia redhead shows once again her graciousness towards those who deem to take the time to watch her and Christopher on the late-night program.

I am overwhelmed with the love and support that I have gotten from people all over the country! People have messaged me begging us to come to their hometowns and Beat the House. The encouragement I have received is so humbling and it means the world to me."

One million viewers tuned into watch one man and one woman try to beat the house chosen by their home buying guests each Tuesday night in January. And hopefully the company behind the effort will bring JoJo and Christopher back for another season. And wouldn't it be great if they also brought in landscape experts too, to give potential home buyers an idea of how they can improve their property grounds as well?

Buckhead's Mary Palmer Dargan is a formally-educated landscape design architect and boasts three published books full of her successful projects in Georgia, North Carolina and other places. She'd make a great addition to the JoJo Jones team. And, in fact, she has had her own experience being on a top rated television show when she appeared on HGTV's "Ground Breakers". So hopefully these two Georgia women will get to go up against two male colleagues from the north in the future together.

In the meantime, JoJo Jones wants to express her appreciation and thanks to all those in this part of the country for watching her new show and rooting for her.

I am also so thankful for the outpouring love of all of my dear friends and family from my birthplace of Macon, Ga. I love them more than I am able to express and I am proud to be a Maconite!"

Watch the HGTV "Beat the House" finale on Tuesday night at 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET and show the Georgia Peach your support. And if you have any questions about real estate that you want an answer to now is your chance to get it for free, as JoJo and Christopher Kromer, her co-star, will be holding an HGTV Hangout session at 2 p.m. ET today and all you have to do is tweet your question to them on Twitter using the #HGTVHangout hash tag.
