In this first episode of the new season Canada’s Handyman Challenge, Host Jenn Roberston and Judges Scott McGillivray, Paul LaFrance and Bryan Baeumler travel to Calgary where they meet savvy contestants “pitching” their pre-made plywood project. The Judges select a roster of top ten handymen. This top ten’s first challenge is to build a functioning mallet for a high striker game. The Judges give the contestants two hours to complete the challenge and once all the dust settles, three contestants will be eliminated. The remaining seven contestants have to create an adult-size rocking horse with materials typically found in a barn. They will have two and a half hours to complete the challenge. Another three contestants will be eliminated and the remaining four are declared the “Western Canada” finalists.
