Blood Sweat & Tools 2015
Blood, Sweat & Tools: Blood, Sweat & Tools is a lively new competition series that features five of Canada’s worst home renovating couples as they compete for a $50,000 cash prize! But this is not your everyday Handyman show: our Mr. and Mrs. Fix-It Wannabes test their skills – and each other – to breaking point. If youve ever engaged in a DIY project with a partner, you’ll appreciate the hilarity--and even hostility!--that ensues. Set in iconic cottage country in Northern Ontario, these hapless handyman duos are each given their own dilapidated cottages in which they perform all manner of home renovation challenges. From installing toilets and outdoor showers, to building gazebos and repairing roofs, they must make perform these DIY tasks in record time and do them right. Our couples compete under the watchful eye of our three experts: Rob Koci, publisher and editor-in-chief of Canadian Contractor magazine; Helder Brum, comedian and carpenter; and Hillary Manion, power tool expert. They will guide our teams through each project, coaching them on everything from the merits of using a measuring tape to proper tool use. Over eight episodes, the five couples will battle it out to become ‘the most improved’. And for the first time in a handyman reality show, a final ninth episode will feature interactive voting from the audience to determine the winning couple. While the season-ending $50,000 Grand Prize is the ultimate goal, every episode will result in a tongue-in-cheek prize awarded to the best duo the week. (They will also have their photo mounted on the Wall of Okay.) Viewers can track the progress of their favourite team online, and even pick up a few skills themselves playing interactive DIY games and quizzes. Fasten your tool belts for a hilarious journey into home repair like youve never seen it before!
