WHAT: Renovation Resort Showdown

WHERE/WHEN: Renovation Resort Showdown premieres Sunday, July 23, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV US.

WHO: Real estate expert and contractor Scott McGillivray (Vacation House Rules) will recruit friendly rival, builder and home renovation expert Bryan Baeumler (Renovation Island), to help overhaul his newly purchased rundown lakeside resort in HGTV’s latest series Renovation Resort Showdown. During the seven-episode, one-of-a-kind vacation rental renovation competition, Scott and Bryan will enlist four professional build/design teams to transform the tired property into a stunning modern-day destination ahead of peak season. The skilled duos—husband and wife Troy and Rotem of Toronto, Ontario; entrepreneurs Arnold and April  Chicago, Illinois; business partners Sean and Jena of Toronto, Ontario; and partners in life and work, Kyle and Savannah of Phoenix, Arizona—will have just seven weeks and a $100,000 budget to turn four identical cabins into luxurious waterfront escapes in their own personal style. Scott, Bryan and rotating guest judges will evaluate the revamped spaces based on quality, creativity and functionality to ultimately determine which team wins bragging rights and a $100,000 cash prize.

To start the competition, the pairs will battle to impress Scott and Bryan with high-end design in the cabins’ primary bedrooms, main floor bathrooms and front entryways. Armed with their signature banter and keen observations, Scott and Bryan will guide the duos as the showdown continues and they remodel the kitchens, living and dining rooms, lofts and exteriors.

Renovation Resort Showdown is produced by MEM.
