C'mon, Evan. Live a little. Is he a germaphobe? It looks like an operating room, but without all the scalpels and stuff.
Ew, he has animal skulls in his house? That makes me reconsider being one of his fans, seriously..
I think it's the home of someone who rarely spends time at home! Maybe Evan just hasn't had time to add any personal touches. It's nice to have some photos, artwork, and little objects like souvenirs here and there, just to make a home feel like a home and remind you of your loved ones and experiences.
I tend to prefer flat surfaces without things on them -- much faster/easier to clean. In that respect, I can totally relate to his place. I really get frustrated when people give me an artsy knick-knack as a gift because I'm always thinking of how long I need to display it before it gets boxed back up. His place suits him perfectly, but for me, I'd like a few more splashes of color.
I just don't know how one would keep that much white clean all the time, although I guess if he's not there that often -and lives by himself- it'd be more doable. Definitely never would've happened in my parents house though.
I've read that Evan is an OCD-level neat freak, so it's possible he could keep everything looking that clean.

Sterile, yet disturbing. lol Seriously I doubt he's been there enough to make a real stamp on the place. The only thing I thought was totally fug were the diningroom chairs. They may be from Beverly Hills but they look more like Parisian whorehouse to me. Well and the skulls. How very goth!
Wow, just completely dead and soulless.
The house is pretty bad too.
It always amazes me when one aspect of a famous person's life makes him or her lose fans. I mean, we expect our heroes to be everything we want them to be, and it's unfair. John Lennon was borderline abusive (maybe even just plain abusive) to his first wife, which is abhorrent to me. Oh, and he neglected his older son. But I'm still a fan of his music and I admire other qualities he had.
So you'd reconsider being a fan of someone because he has animal skulls in his home?
And I'm not even an Evan fan, but I just thought that was weird. People don't seem to look at their fellow human beings for all that they are. Weird to bring this into this Evan discussion, but it just made me think of that.
Somehow, I doubt that he has a real human skull gold plated ... when I saw it on the video clip, I thought it was probably a gold plated model of a human skull. I also believe there are laws governing what can and can't be done with human remains.
You can't even get human bones for anatomy labs anymore in colleges/med schools - you either rely on very old ones that have been in the university for decades, or you get the plastic models.
Yeesh, chill out people. I don't find Evan having a thing for skulls any worse than Johnny wanting to wear deceased animals at every opportunity (and no, I'm not a member of PETA, I still have my mother's old furs, just making a comparison here). They both have their own tastes, good for them.

I just found it sad that there were no personal items around except for the wall clippings of his Olympic victory. Even if Evan was only at the Las Vegas house once or twice a month, how long does it take to put some family photos out or books on a shelf, especially since he was showing off his home for a tv program.
I guess fur serves the purposes of clothing, something to keep you warm (though for many people it is primarily for fashion). The skulls are strictly for decoration and are kind of creepy.
On the other hand, foxes are electrocuted specifically to get the fur , whereas the skulls came from animals who happened to have died already.
I'd call it a draw.
I was also wondering why Evan doesn't have photos of his family on the wall. He seems very proud of his family and tweets picture of his baby niece. But then again nobody seems to print out photos anymore; they just post them on social networking sites.

Between winning Olympic gold in February 2010 and April 5, 2011, Evan has spent 24 days at his home. With 1.8 days at home a month I understand why there aren't many personal touches or photos.
