What’s Going on With Donovan Eckhardt, the Lead Contractor on ‘Windy City Rehab’?

Season 2 of HGTV’s Windy Metropolis Rehab has formally begun, and it seems like this season may have extra drama than ever. More often than not, the “drama” of renovation reveals is restricted to issues like, “Now we have to restore the muse” or “we are able to’t transfer the HVAC to the attic.” And whereas these sorts of issues positively nonetheless occur on Windy Metropolis Rehab, there’s even extra drama taking place now.

That’s as a result of the present’s hosts, Alison Victoria and her (former) lead contractor Donovan Eckhardt, are going through a number of lawsuits associated to the tasks that have been featured on Season 1. Judging by what we’ve seen of Season 2 to this point, it seems just like the lawsuits and the fall-out from them are going to be a reasonably large a part of the present, no less than for now. Alison seems responsible Donovan for lots of the problems, so what occurred?

What occurred to Donovan from ‘Windy Metropolis Rehab’?

In the event you watched Season 1 of Windy Metropolis Rehab, you have got a reasonably good concept of who Donovan is. He and Alison Victoria are co-stars of the present, with Alison creating the designs for the Chicago houses they work on and Donovan bringing these designs to life. A minimum of, that was what was supposed to occur.

Nonetheless, Alison and Donovan at the moment are wrapped up in a number of lawsuits for shoddy and faulty work. One Chicago couple claims that the day after they closed on their home (the renovation of which was featured in an episode of Season 1), an upstairs rest room began leaking gallons of water into the kitchen beneath it. An inspector additionally discovered that almost each window had been improperly put in. The couple introduced a lawsuit towards Alison and Donovan — they usually weren’t the one ones to take action.

One other couple skilled comparable points with their Chicago house and additionally introduced a lawsuit towards the Windy Metropolis Rehab hosts. After which but one other lawsuit cropped up when a former good friend of Donovan’s claimed that he (alongside together with his household) had invested tens of millions of {dollars} within the tasks featured on the present, solely to seek out out later that Donovan’s claims of experience in constructing in Chicago have been fraudulent.

In different phrases, Donovan is in fairly a little bit of authorized bother as of late. Within the premiere episode of Season 2, we see what seems to be the start of the top of Alison and Donovan’s enterprise partnership — and friendship. The episode reveals the 2 of them being turned down for a mortgage from a financial institution. That’s when Alison discovers that almost all of their renovation finances for an unfinished challenge — tons of of 1000’s of {dollars} — has apparently been paid out to Donovan’s firm with out her information.

We all know that Alison and Donovan are not working collectively, but it surely seems like we’ll have to remain tuned to see precisely what went down between the HGTV co-stars. Both manner, we now have a reasonably good feeling that Donovan gained’t be exhibiting up in Season 3 (assuming there may be one).
