TORONTO, March 15, 2016 /CNW/ - W Network's biggest competition series Game of Homes returns for its second season with new host, Dave Salmoni and resident judges Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan. Season 2 takes place in Toronto and follows four teams renovating rundown homes as they compete for the prize of a lifetime – a house and a plot of land to put it on. Produced by Great Pacific Media in association with W Network, Game of Homes premieres Tuesday, April 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
"Game of Homes has proven to be a huge hit with our audiences and with the new energy that Dave, Colin and Justin bring to the series, I'm sure Season 2 will be no exception," said John MacDonald, Executive Vice President, Head of Women and Family, Corus Entertainment. "We have four amazing pairs of competitors who display an incredible level of passion and talent, and we think viewers will love going on the adventure with them as they put it all on the line to transform rundown houses into spectacular homes."
"Viewers will want to tune in weekly to see the fun banter between Colin and Justin, the great hosting skills of Dave Salmoni, the seven incredibly savvy guest judges and of course our four fiercely competitive teams as they try to out design, out demo, and outdo each other," said Blair Reekie, President, Great Pacific Media. "It's a fight to the finish you won't want to miss."
Throughout the new season, Dave Salmoni guides four teams of skilled amateur home renovators as they compete for the chance to trade in their skills for their very own home. The teams save rundown houses from the wrecking ball and week-by-week revive them into dream homes, one room at a time. Each team works side-by-side, around the clock, to completely transform these dumps into show homes – while also living in them through the entire renovation. They will battle small budgets, tight deadlines, cramped quarters and each other for a chance to win a home and change their lives forever.
The teams include hard working married couple Kim and Harry, who want to win the house for more financial freedom and a chance to spend more time with their kids; best buddies Domenic and Michael, hoping to move out of their parents' home; engaged couple Courtney and Tyler; and mother and son duo Shelley and Alex, looking to win the house to secure financial stability for Alex's future.
Bringing their expertise to this season of Game of Homes, Colin and Justin will vote for their favourite room renovations based on design and workmanship, working alongside a stellar cast of celebrity guest judges including Kortney and Dave Wilson from Masters of Flip, and Jillian Harris and Todd Talbot from Love It or List It Vancouver. In the finale, both the judges and the public will casts their votes, and in the dramatic and life-changing conclusion, the winning team is awarded their spectacular new home.
