Home reno show looking for contestants


Burnaby Now/ Chris Campbell

Great Pacific Media is pleased to announce that HGTV Canada’s original home renovation series Worst to First is now casting homeowners and buyers in the Lower Mainland for its second season.

Worst to First sees best friends, professional contractors, and the charismatic 2018 Leo Award winners for ‘Best Hosts in an Information, Lifestyle or Reality Program or Series’, Sebastian Sevallo and Mickey Fabbiano, take on the challenge of transforming the most undesirable house on the block into a beautiful forever home.

Everyone wants a move-in ready dream home, but with sky-high real estate prices in a hot market, it’s just not possible for most homeowners. That’s where Mickey and Sebastian come in. This duo thrives on the challenge of transforming fixer-uppers into the envy of the neighbourhood.

Homeowners or people currently shopping for a home in the Greater Vancouver Regional District can apply for a chance to receive a dream renovation. Applicants chosen to appear in Season 2 of Worst to First will be provided with expert design services and a stunning renovation in only 5-6 weeks. If selected, approximately a $40,000 contribution (cash and in-kind) will be made by production towards labour and materials. To qualify, homeowners must be buying/renovating a “fixer-upper” property and have a minimum renovation/design budget of $70,000. Candidates must be energetic, enthusiastic, and eager to be on camera for approximately 5-6 days for filming over a 5-6 week period. They must be available periodically for on-camera interviews as the renovation progresses between August 2018 and January 2019.
