For Jessie and Eric, family has always been the No. 1 priority, and they hope to showcase that this season as a refreshing change for reality TV.
"Besides Fixer Upper, I can't really tell you any shows that are just [showing] happy, inspiring people," Jessie says. "I don't think people want to sit there and just watch drama all the time. I don't, that doesn't make me feel good. I'm not coming down on anyone that enjoys watching those drama shows -- I know that they can be fun. I used to love Flavor of Love and Rock of Love, but those were never malicious."
"I just can't get into the malicious kind of shows, where they're just mean to each other, or they're being catty and hurtful," she continues. "For me, it doesn't feel good. I started getting emails from people going through chemotherapy, or someone who had lost a loved one, and that our show was one of the main things that got them through. The happiness. It made me sit back and go, 'This is a good distraction for those going through a horrible time. Why not [bring it back]?'"
"We're doing a good thing," Jessie adds. "We're spreading love and happiness instead of putting more negativity into the world."
