‘The Great Christmas Light Fight’ kicks off with state competitions in season 9 with Carter Oosterhouse and Taniya Nayak


NEW YORK — Two skilled designers and thousands and thousands of lights make for essentially the most fantastic time of 12 months on ABC.

“The Great Christmas Light Fight” is again for its ninth season with cohosts Carter Oosterhouse and Taniya Nayak.

In every merry and shiny episode, the Christmas basic takes viewers throughout the nation to essentially the most elaborate and awe-inspiring vacation shows in the nation as viewers will as soon as once more see 4 implausible households face off in every one-hour episode and compete to win $50,000.

“People want to get out, they want to see their neighbors, they want to see each other’s faces in their communities, for that, I feel like the people who were putting up the displays, they were just out there for a bigger reason and their hearts were all in the right place,” Oosterhouse mentioned.

This 12 months, the battles are statewide and every episode options 4 households from the identical state! Typically which means, the crews needed to wait out some climate points.

“Sometimes we’re in cities that have major rainstorms or snowstorms so things are of course going to happen, but we want it to be all presented in the best light possible, so if there is an issue with rain we’re going to make sure they get the opportunity to showcase their display in the best way, exactly the way they intended to, so for any future Light Fighters out there, fear not, we’ve got you,” Nayak mentioned.

However simply getting the prospect to point out off their show is a tremendous feat with so many entries, and it evokes others in their neighborhood to share their Christmas cheer.

“It doesn’t have to be Christmas Light Fight level, I think people just putting a strand of lights out on their front door, a little effort goes a long way,” Nayak mentioned.

The primary episode options 4 California households and the second, aired back-to-back with the primary, showcases 4 households from Texas.

“Technology is so advanced, we actually see someone who is diffusing lights, so manipulating it and changing it, it’s so creative, way above my level of expertise, but I also love seeing when people get creative and they build things,” Oosterhouse mentioned.

Do not miss the season 9 premiere of “The Great Christmas Light Fight” this Sunday, November 28 at 9 p.m. EST on ABC and streaming the subsequent day on demand and on Hulu.
