'Renovation Raiders' Premiere: Woman's Kitchen Remodeled Over Dinner (VIDEO)

HGTV's new extreme makeover show "Renovation Raiders," which premiered Thursday night, features an exciting premise: You go out to dinner, and while you’re gone your house gets remodeled.

Ricardo contacted the show about getting his kitchen redone for his wife Jen. While the couple was gone, host Amy Matthews and her team did the speediest makeover of all time.

“Are you serious right now?” Jen said when she came home. "I'm like shaking right now."

"This is awesome!" Ricardo said.

Jen loved the new kitchen, even saying that after her wedding day, this was the best day of her life.

Matthews even does run-throughs with her team before the night, planning everything, so as not to make a misstep -- a few minutes' delay is a huge problem! Matthews told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review she has a great time, which really helps.

But South Coast Today isn’t impressed, wondering how Matthew and her team are doing good work while moving so fast.

"Renovation Raiders" airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on HGTV.
