Moving from the football field to the realm of construction and design has been a natural for former CFL defensive back Sebastian Clovis, whose passion for football brought him to the Grey Cup while playing with the BC Lions.
But it’s his passion for home renovations that’s the focus of his new project, HGTV’s upcoming DIY series Tackle My Reno, in which Sebastian (who retired from football in 2008) lends his advice — and his hammer — to harried homeowners trapped in home-renovation hell.
In the series debut, Sebastian helps out a chronic procrastinator whose endless DIY basement reno has left his family flustered. Then, in the second of two back-to-back episodes, he helps a mother-to-be with a short window of opportunity by giving her husband the guidance and confidence he needs to complete their kitchen reno before the baby comes.
You can catch Sebastian Clovis and Tackle My Reno when it premieres Tuesday, Aug. 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV.
