Host Kevin O'Connor was a homeowner in Boston who had asked the producers for help. They liked what they saw, and had him back on camera a couple of times as screen tests. He was then offered the job, when the current host at the time Steve Thomas, wanted to move on to other projects. See more »
I am at a loss as to why this show's average rating is a low six. It is a very informative show without any of the reality TV-like drama that accompanies some of the DIY shows. I love it because I just want the knowledge and none of the worthless drama. Furthermore, the difficulty of the projects they do is right in my comfort zone (I used to work summers with my Dad and Uncle doing home remodeling and maintenance, so I have a good base, but I lack the decades of experience that they have). Most of the projects are practical/pragmatic in nature. In another words they're not about prettying up the place to sell (new paint, furniture, etc), but about fixing problems or adding functionality. Projects include plumbing, electrical, general carpentry, flooring, and even landscaping. Anyway, it's a great show and hope it lasts another ten years.
