Does Ryan Stasik Appear On The HGTV Show Breaking Blend?
Not really. Ryan’s wife Mary Welch Fox Stasik was one of the hosts of the show Breaking Blend alongside John Frick. And as far as we know, Ryan and Mary’s personal life does not feature in the show. At least, it is not the main attraction of the show.
Mary is an interior designer with a great love for “fun design”. “My dad let me redo my room here in Knoxville. One of my friend’s moms was an interior designer,” Mary said about how she came to love interior design “She helped me sit down and put together how you would do a bed, how you would do drapes, how you would do all the things and I’m like that’s so cool.” Mary is originally from Knoxville, Tennesse.
The show Breaking Blend premiered on 4 August 2021. You can catch the show and Mary’s keen eye for decoration on HGTV.
