It’s time Reno TV got Punk’d! "The Fix" is Candid Camera meets Face Lift in this reno-ridiculous half hour of craftsmanship meets comedy for HGTV. Each week, irreverent and infectiously funny Brit contractors Neil Davies ("Real Renos") and Jay Purvis ("Kitchen Equipped") prey on hapless homeowners who think they’re getting a free TV makeover, only to be “fixed” with some of the most absurd reno and decor ideas ever imagined.
"The Fix" is a chance for these two talented craftsmen to ditch their measuring tapes and have some fun at their client’s expense, showing us just how bad a reno can go, with priceless results. We watch the entire process as Jay and Neil scheme to deliver the ultimate practical joke, with someone else’s house! In each episode, the homeowners are introduced, their hopes and dreams for a TV makeover are explored, and then their worst nightmares are realized on reveal day. As the homeowners voice their true feelings about the absurd transformation, our tireless pranksters keep straight-faced as long as possible, describing and defending their pièce de résistance, until the homeowner is finally informed – You’ve been Fixed!
After the cat is out of the bag, some CPR has been administered, and all is forgiven (we hope!) our guys get to work to make it right – tearing out the terrible room, pulling off the nasty finishings, and transforming it into the beautiful space our victims were hoping for. They are ushered back into the wonderful new space for the “real reveal” and after hugs and kisses, the roller coaster ride is over, and our once cruel and conniving contractors are redeemed.
"The Fix" is a daring and hilarious experiment in home reno TV, and shows us just how far two seemingly honest, skilled contractors will go for a really good laugh at their client’s expense. (Source: http://www.hgtv.ca/ontv/titledetails.aspx?titleid=117780&Cat)
