DIY NETWORK AMBUSHES HOMEOWNERS NATIONWIDE DURING ITS FOURTH ANNUAL "CRASH WEEK"
Four Hosts Join Forces To Blow Out "The Ultimate Crash" With New Episodes All Week
NEW YORK, June 27, 2013 - Beginning Monday, July 8, DIY Network kicks-off its fourth annual Crash Week, a weeklong marathon featuring House Crashers hosted by licensed contractor Josh Temple; Yard Crashers hosted by licensed contractor Matt Blashaw; Bath Crashers, hosted by licensed contractor and designer Matt Muenster; and Kitchen Crashers hosted by interior designer Alison Victoria. Each night from 8 p.m. ET to midnight, the four hosts ambush local residents in cities across the country including Tampa, Las Vegas, Chicago, Minneapolis, Phoenix, and San Francisco to turn simple renovations into stunning makeovers. Also debuting on Sunday, July 14 at 7 p.m. ET, DIY Network's one-hour special The Ultimate Crash brings all four Crashers hosts together for the most exciting surprise home makeover yet.
The Ultimate Crash captures homeowners Jesus and Britni Arguelles being ambushed by Blashaw, Muenster, Temple and Victoria at their local hardware store, where they soon learn the couple's Rocklin, Calif., home is in serious need of an update. The family wins the home improvement jackpot with four massive renovations completed in just three days:
· Temple turns the boring living room into a modern relaxation space with a reclaimed pallet wall, cork floors and a basalt-lined fireplace with a flip-around TV.
· Muenster transforms the master bath into a cozy getaway with a custom metal and wood vanity, cork penny flooring, a slate-lined shower and slipper tub for two.
· Victoria flips the bland kitchen into a pastry chef's dream with a massive new island, cream cabinets, a colorful trough sink and a custom pie safe.
· Blashaw upgrades the drab backyard with a charcoal cobble patio, trickling water feature and an outdoor kitchen with massive grill and pizza oven.
