About

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 you've 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 you've never seen it before!

    Let There Be Tools!

    In this series opener of BLOOD, SWEAT AND TOOLS viewers meet the five hapless handyman duos from across Canada who will compete for the $50,000 grand prize! One of them will be declared “Most Improved” at the end of nine weeks, when viewers weigh in with an interactive vote in the Grand Finale. These couples have been handpicked for their lack of workmanship, planning and teamwork abilities so they have nowhere to go but up! Viewers also meet the crack team of experts who will guide them: Rob Koci, the publisher and editor-in-chief of Canadian Contractor magazine; Helder Brum, a carpenter and comedian; and Hillary Manion, a power tool specialist. In this episode, the teams will face three challenges: Challenge One is to build a worktable to exact specifications; Challenge Two is to construct a fire pit and swinging bench(this is cottage country after all!); and Challenge Three is to install a toilet. And yes, there will be a flush test! The winner of this episode is given a special prize, and their photo is placed on the infamous Wall of Just Okay. The battle is on!

    What’s Up, Dock?

    The five teams get up close and friendly with water in this episode. In Challenge One, the teams must install a window. Chaos ensues as they cut holes into walls and precariously perch their glass and frame inside them. Water is then blasted against the window to test the seal. (Raingear required.) Challenge Two is a quintessential cottage test: building a dock and diving board. Challenge Three requires some rudimentary plumbing skills: installing an outdoor shower and pump. Not surprisingly, the teams struggle with how to get the water from the lake to the showerhead. Some swim and others sink.

    The Walls Come Tumbling Down

    Safety is a theme in this episode, as the experts come down hard on participants for their sloppy (and dangerous) work habits. Challenge One is a teardown: demolishing a wall to make room for bunk beds. It’s a test of patience and planning, but at times, it seems more like handyman gone wild. Challenge Two is building a picnic area – complete with gazebo, table and barbecue. But a gross misuse of tools throws a wrench into the entire project. Challenge Three gives the teams a chance to redeem themselves: building a boat lift. But it’s all rather alien to our land-loving couples – who come up with very different versions. Hey, whatever floats your boat lift!
