ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA) — A local high school teacher and realtor is being featured on HGTV’s House Hunters.
Nick Rhoads is not your average real estate agent.
He’s a high school teacher at Springdale Alternative Learning Environment (ALE), grows a mullets, and will be featured on a national television show on Thanksgiving night.
“I hope we’re not watching the death of my real estate career live on television Thursday night,” Rhoads said.
Rhoads has been a realtor at Gibson Real Estate for four years.
“I was working with some real estate clients for a couple of years and the wife was like hey its always been my dream to be on House Hunters and I was like okay I never thought anything about it,” he said.
A couple of months later he got a call from Hollywood California.

It was the casting producer for HGTV’s House Hunters.
“We facetimed and I just told her, listen, I don’t have cable, I’m driving a crappy 10-year-old Nissan Altima, I don’t really know much about your show but if you want someone to be real on tv, I’m your guy,” he said. “I gave her a little hair flip with the mullet and she loved it.”
During the winter for duck hunting season, Rhoads grows out his hair.
As a joke for his students, he decided to shave a mullet.
“I’m excited and nervous because I had a mullet before the show and so I felt like I had to keep it because that’s who I am,” he said.

Rhoads said he is thankful for this opportunity.
He and his mullet will make their grand appearance on House Hunter’s on Thanksgiving night at 9:30 p.m.
