ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - The winner of a lavish home from the ABC television show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is selling some of the furnishings that the network gave her.
She needed money to run the business so she took out a $50,000 mortgage on her house.
Holmes couldn't keep up with the payments, so earlier in May the title was given to the mortgage holders.
Thursday, some of the stuff remains for sale on the front lawn. The entire front yard and driveway was filled. From Christmas decorations to clothes, it all had to go.
Neighbor Nick Tanner said the show set them up to fail.
"I don't think they think ahead when they're making all these home improvements. They don't realize their property (taxes) are going to go up. Their air bills are going to go up, electricity. All these other things," Tanner said.
Holmes didn't answer any questions Thursday.
"God is in control," Holmes said.
Holmes would not say how much she made off the yard sale, and it is unknown when she has to move out.
Holmes' attorney did not respond to Channel 9's emails for comment.
