The hip-hop personality, who has dabbled in TV over the years, including a stint as a guest host on ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise last summer, is now leading his own series. Premiering Monday, HGTV’s Lil Jon Wants to Do What? features the titular star and home design expert Anitra Mecadon working with homeowners to update their abodes in unexpected ways.
Lil Jon and Mecadon have been friends for five years, dating back to when the rapper was bingeing home-renovation shows while getting his own Atlanta pad fixed up following a plumbing issue. Lil Jon reached out to Mecadon for help with his place after checking out her DIY Network series Mega Dens, and the pair realized they had a unique connection.
