Jenni thought Rob and Gretchen's bed could have comfortably slept twelve.

Jeff Lewis saying, "You have bad taste and everything has to go," is not everyone’s idea of a good time.

Rob, Gretchen, and their two dogs are living with large furniture in a small house.
Sheets cover the windows, and Gretchen's idea of decor covers everything else.
Big and plenty seems to be the theme here.
The bed would comfortably sleep twelve.
Jeff says Gretchen is a magnet for over-sized and ugly.
Rob is a very large man who has been given a very small voice by Gretchen who is a "design bully."
"Get rid of everything over-sized except Rob" is our starting point.
Jeff wants controlling Gretchen muzzled and Rob to speak up.

"Everything must go" is handled very well by a smiling Rob.
"Donate" is music to his ears.
Gretchen has a very hard time letting go. "Keep" becomes an issue.
Jeff sees this as a lack of trust.
Her repeating, "I am a hoarder," does nothing to lessen the tension.
Jeff bolts when Gretchen does not want to follow through with her commitment to toss.
Space is really an issue here.
