Local real estate agent to be on TLC's 'My First Home'

By Special to the American Press

In February, Authentic Entertainment was in town again for a week working with local realtor, Nikki Pruitt, on TLC’s “My

First Home,” set to air Saturday, May 31 at 11 a.m.

Pruitt was featured on a “My First Home” episode last year. This year, the episode will feature former KPLC Sports Reporter

Charlie Bartlett and his wife Samantha Bartlett, a former Cowgirl Kicker, who both currently work in the local hospitality

industry at L’Auberge Casino Resort.

“This is the first time we’ve used a realtor twice. We felt good about revisiting Lake Charles because of how well Nikki

did last time,” said Lindsay Tuggle, field producer.

“I told them the first time before they arrived that once they came down to Lake Charles they would want to come back,” said

Nikki Pruitt, Keller Williams realtor. “Just like last season, it was a lot of work, but it was amazing working with the

crew. Sam and Charlie will make such a cute episode.”

“My First Home” follows potential home buyers through the highs and lows of their first home purchase.
