Orlando Soria Build Me Up
Orlando is the host of HGTV’s Build Me Up. In the show, he helps renovate homes for clients going through a major life change. Prior to hosting Build Me Up, he hosted ‘Unspouse My House’ also on HGTV, which followed him as he helped various heartbreak victims get through the breakup through interior design. Unlike Unspouse which helped clients get over a bad breakup, Build Me Up covers a wider range of trauma.
The inspiration behind the show was his own personal life. He had gone through a breakup and soon after moving into an expensive apartment, he lost his job at the now-defunct design platform Homepolish. Designing his new home, however, brought him joy and he thought about a way to pay that joy forward.
