One businessman turned down multiple luxury properties on BBC’s Crazy Rich Agents because he deemed them ‘too small’ and complained the hedges were ‘overgrown.’
The property show, which airs tonight at 9pm, follows a number of agents working for brokerage Nest Seekers and has been billed as the BBC’s equivalent to the highly successful Netflix series Selling Sunset.
In tonight’s episode, 22-year-old Krish tried to find a property which would work for millionaire businessman Nirad Solanki, who is the founder of a Leicestershire-based brewery company named Elmesthorpe Brewery Company.
The entrepreneur had a very specific check list he was looking to fulfil as he tried to secure his dream property – from a home with 18,000 sq ft of space to a landscaped garden.
However he appeared less than impressed with the offerings shown to him by Krish – poo-pooing one property because it was ‘too small’, while he was annoyed by an overgrown driveway at another home.

Appearing on the show, British boss Daniel McPeake, who is the managing director, said: ‘The property business isn’t about near misses. We’re a few months into this process now, and some people are getting closer than others.
Eddie Shapiro, president and CEO of the business, said: ‘What we look for in talent is the spark. Here comes this magical personality which will draw people.
‘When I see that little bit of X-factor, I’ll draw the people in.’
Krish, 22, said he had ‘a lot of things to think about’, saying he was determined to land a sale at the company
He said: ‘You’re watching your numbers decrease in your bank account, you’re spending money you don’t have to impress people.
‘It starts to put doubt in your mind, am I not doing this right?’
Among Krish’s clients as Nirad, who made his fortune by founding a brewery and pub business.
He tasked Krish with looking for a house with greenery, no neighbours, and at least 18,000 sq ft of space.
Property agent Krish, 22, who worked for luxury agents Nest Seekers, showed Nirad around two incredible homes on the show
One of the properties featured a stunning dining and entertaining space with viewers across the landscape
Meanwhile another boasted two pools – one inside and another outside – which Nirad confessed he loved
Meanwhile he added: ‘It’s got to be landscaped grounds as well as farming. it’s got to have character, it’s got to be listed. It’s got to tick the Nirad seven boxes, and I won’t tell anyone that.
‘I never have a budget generally speaking, it’s all about value for money for me.’
The first property Krish showed Nirad was a secluded seven bedroom Victorian manor in Dorset, which is on the market for over £5 million.
It featured a pool and jacuzzi, as well as an expansive outdoor area and a BBQ cooking station.
It also had a guest house, meaning it’s the perfect location for friends and family to stay.
Krish described the kitchen as a ‘Grease Lightning style’ kitchen, but Nirad quickly quietened the agent, saying he ‘just wanted to absorb it.’

However Nirad was put off by the room, saying he could easily spend £100,000 transforming the space.
Each of the bedrooms had a walk-in wardrobe and a bathroom – but Nirad still wasn’t sure.
Nirad said the master was a ‘great space’ but ‘a bit small’, saying: ‘I feel the house is a bit small.
‘I don’t feel it’s worth £5.75 million at all. If I was realistic, I think it’s probably worth £4.25 million.’
The second house Krish showed Nirad didn’t leave a good first impression on the millionaire.
He said: ‘The driveway is too narrow, the amount of brambles and bushes etc. I’ve got a few marks on my Rolls Royce.’
It was an eight bedroom, converted farmhouse with extensive outbuildings, and it was on the market for £4.8 million.

However Nirad confessed he was unimpressed with the kitchen in the property and said it would cost £100,000 to get it up to his standard
Despite Nirad’s feelings, the stunning property did feature a jacuzzi spa and a swimming pool (pictured)
Among Nirad’s complaints about the property were that the master bedroom was far too small for him and his wife
The property was sat on 6 acres of land, with a tennis court and outdoor and indoor swimming pool.
It also has a croquet lawn and a Moroccan spa.
And despite his initial reservations, Nirad confessed he was blown away by the property, saying the home was ‘ticking a lot of boxes.’
He said: ‘This is a game changer, as if one swimming pool wasn’t enough. Go back or go bigger.’
Nirad added: ‘I really can see myself living here. I reckon it’s probably worth £4.5 to £5 million.
‘It’s certainly food for thought and I’m going to leave it with you, I want you to organise a second viewing for me where I bring my wife and kids down. I think it’ll work.’
Crazy Rich Agents airs on Sundays at 9pm on BBC2.
