Episode One starts with a bang. To earn their spot as an official top ten finalist, our twenty handymen invitees are immediately forced into a one-off challenge. To earn an official spot in the competition, the twenty contestants have just two hours to build whatever they like. The more clever or skill demanding their project, the better their chances are likely to be – that’s up to the contestant to decide. When time is called, it’s up to the resident judges, Mike Holmes and Scott McGillivray to decide which ten exhausted handymen will be staying, and which ten will be going home.
