About The Cousins

The Cousins, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, don't just change structures, they change lives. That's why they are one of TV's most talked about sensations since first debuting on HGTV in 2011. These New Jersey-born first cousins initially captured America's attention with Kitchen Cousins where they brought numerous kitchens across the States back to life. Cousins On Call saw them take home renovations to a whole new level, while Cousins Undercover gave homeowner heroes the surprise of a lifetime upon returning from a weekend getaway. In 2015, America's Most Desperate Kitchens debuted, where The Cousins took the next step, targeting the country's most disastrous kitchens and re-envisioning them completely. No matter how big the job at hand, Anthony and John always build happiness!
