TORONTO, Canada – This spring, HGTV Canada’s breakout hit Canadian original series Home to Win, returns for a super-sized, star-studded second season now featuring 30 of the best-known builders, designers and real estate experts. Together, they will transform an average house into a dream waterfront property for one lucky Canadian. Beginning today, HomeToWin.ca is accepting applications from Canadians across the country to compete to win the home in this season’s high-stakes finale. Ranked as the #1 specialty competition series (A25-54) in its inaugural season*, the second season of Home to Win debuts Sunday, April 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV Canada.
“After a hugely successful inaugural season, Home to Win proves to have the winning formula as a multiplatform series,” said John MacDonald, Senior Vice President, Women and Lifestyle Content, Corus Entertainment. “The second season builds on that blueprint, delivering a massive, all-star cast of HGTV Canada personalities, spectacular reveals and the opportunity for one lucky Canadian to win a fully-furnished dream home.”
Hosted by Entertainment Tonight Canada’s Sangita Patel, the series’ returning stars include Mike Holmes, Bryan Baeumler, Scott McGillivray, and Sarah Richardson among others. A few of the additional stars joining the series this season include household names: Jonathan and Drew Scott, Dave and Kortney Wilson, and Jillian Harris and Todd Talbot. In each episode of Home to Win, two celebrity builders pair with two fan-favourite designers to complete two rooms within the waterfront property. Week-to-week newly renovated rooms are revealed and the dramatic season finale sees three Canadians compete to win the completed home in a series of challenges leaving one lucky competitor with the keys to the spectacular waterfront home.
