The backgrounds on most  "junk TV" celebs is fairly easy to track down.

 Wikipedia, as an example, is chock full of info, as long as you do some minor searching, and clickin' on links. In this case, however, I have done the searching for you, so all you have to do is some clickin'!

Take "Picker Sisters" as an example.

The hosts are Tracy Hutson and Tanya McQueen.

The names may sound familiar to you because they each were part of another highly popular Reality TV show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.  Yes, that is the one with that bundle of seemingly boundless energy that is always bouncing around your TV screen, also known as Ty Pennington.

Tracy Hutson is also an actress, and also started her own design business in Los Angeles in 1999. She ended up as one of the original style consultants on the same show, as well as appeared in a few films and TV shows, including:

 TV Sitcoms: Damaged Goods and Less Than Perfect.
 Films/Movies:  Mixed Signals, Endsville, and Rated X (appearing in the role of noted porn actress,  Marilyn Chambers (who was also an exotic dancer, model and, oddly enough, vice-presidential candidate!)

So, Tracy Hutson is an experienced actress who is also a designer.


Sounds like a match made in heaven for a reality TV show producer, eh?

Tanya McQueen was first noticed by an ABC producer when she appeared with her cousin on TLC Network's reality TV show Property Ladder.

She ended up on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and since then also hosted Hitched or Ditched on the CW Network. 

So, that is the general background of the "Picker Sisters"...who I guess are not really sisters, and I suppose not really pickers,as far as most people's definition of the word goes.

Oh well, it is just TV, after all.
