FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next 1 Interactive, Inc., (OTCBB: NXOI) ("Next 1") announced today that it has entered into an agreement with "Foreclosure 2 Fabulous," a new home improvement TV reality show that focuses on purchasing and renovating foreclosures, on a budget.

Furthermore, Next 1 Interactive has also been granted the right to handle additional distribution, exclusively to European markets, as part of its planned program to target European vacationers and inform them of the potential benefits of purchasing a second vacation home abroad.
"Foreclosure 2 Fabulous provides a synergistic approach to our planned venture of promoting foreclosures, as vacation homes, to both the U.S. and European markets.

The possibilities continue to expand as Next 1 Realty advances in exposing video on demand to viewers in unique ways," says Bill Kerby, CEO of Next 1 Interactive.
