In the Season 4 premiere, John, Jamie’s newest recruit, must save a snowplow stuck in the grip of an icy river. While Jamie pushes further into new territory, changes rock the company, forcing Colin to take on a new role. His first wreck of the season tests his skill on the rotator plus his skills as a leader. And the entire community says farewell to a Heavy Rescue crew legend.

“We’re very proud that our #1 show is a Canadian production and plays such a prominent role in our primetime schedule,” said Paul Lewis, President and General Manager, Discovery. “HIGHWAY THRU HELL is a series unique to Canadian audiences offering a blend of real life characters that resonate with our viewers.”

W NETWORK GAME OF HOMES TV CONTESTANTS PJ (PAWAN) and NINA JOHAR PASSION FOR DESIGN SHINES WITH THEIR NEW RENOVATION IN NORTH VANCOUVER

imageW Network Game of Homes TV Contestants PJ and Nina Johar discovered their passion for design, construction and flipping homes and launched PNJ property investment group. Selected for their great personalities, teamwork, can-do attitude and past property success stories, PJ and Nina displayed their amazing skills and abilities in design and construction on every episode.

PJ had to make the hard decision when his six-figure job was not waiting for him after the TV show. Plans for a design+build company was something that PJ & Nina had been pondering for quite some time. Nina has a deep interest in design planning and layout which started as a hobby and has developed into a business all while still working as a nurse full time and raising two children while managing their household. They have a goal of building a successful real estate empire and currently partner with silent investors on real estate venture projects where PNJ does everything from sourcing the property, renovating/building to selling the property. The hot Vancouver real estate market can be unaffordable for the average investor, however through PNJ they make it possible. They also take on a select few client renovation projects.

Their focus, when possible is on saving old and heritage homes with a view to the future in new construction also. By far the biggest house transformation they have done, PJ & Nina have spent the last six months transforming a house in North Vancouver inside and out. The house sat vacant for five years and was on the market for over 60 days, likely scheduled to be demolished. They brought life back in the family home that two generations grew up in. The house needed extensive work and a complete back to the studs renovation. A challenge far beyond anything on Game of Homes!

With city and Grouse Mountain views they used glass and large doors to bring the outside in. Known for their family friendly designs on the show the house also features a 3-hole putting green to create family fun times. PJ only uses trades that are highly tech savvy and has installed smartphone home automation, a new high velocity heating/ cooling system, in-built sound system, touch tap and to boot the house boasts a massive 500sq ft. deck and huge quartz kitchen island for entertaining. Nina signature designs, like her wall & ceiling headboard and great use of colors inside and out bring life to the house.

2Strong-willed and tenacious, this fan favorite couple has all the design and construction experience to take on any challenge. Nina and Pawan have done numerous home renovation projects together including gutting and refurbishing an entire 101yr old heritage home. They love to use color to bring any space to life. With Nina’s strong design background and Pawan’s patience in structural work, the two have a passion for and desire to buy and flip many more houses and on the horizons are two new build projects in the vibrant Commercial Drive area.

PNJ Property Investment Group recognizes its responsibilities beyond the financial aspects of their work. They believe that helping the community and homeowners is important. Protecting our environment through greener redevelopments as well as supporting philanthropic causes in every community is fundamental to their core values.

About PNJ Property Group
PNJ Property Investment Group Ltd. is a privately managed and family owned business that is locally owned and has been operating for a number of years. PNJ has a strong portfolio of successful property acquisitions and strong returns on investment. Pawan Johar (PJ) and Nina Johar are both founders of the company and a strong team focused on solid results and fast growth.

The North Vancouver property at 3348 Mahon Avenue is listed for sale. More information can be found at http://www.pixilink.com/84442.

The beautiful designer home, structured and designed by PJ and Nina from W-Network’s Game of Homes. It is a corner & LARGEST lot on the block. Completely transformed from the studs (Permits) this home has everything you can ask for and more including 3Bdrm up, 2Bdrm down, legal suite (option for fourth bedroom/office/media for owners use), a 3 hole putting green, XL entertainers deck with city and mountain views & 2 huge yards for the kids. Vaulted Ceilings, Smartphone Home Automation, High velocity heating & cooling system, built in audio surround system, LED lighting & Electric car plug-in! This one of a kind gem won’t last!

W Network’s Biggest Prize Winners, Charlotte Fenton and Sean Duncan, Take Home the House They Renovated in the Season Finale of Game of Homes

The Promotion People - Game of HomesTeams of amateurs transformed four decrepit houses in the competition to win their dream home

The final episode of W Network’s Game of Homes aired last night awarding Charlotte Fenton and Sean Duncan the ultimate prize: their renovated house and a plot of land to put it on. With eight weeks to renovate four decrepit homes room-by-room, four teams of amateur renovators battled small budgets, tight deadlines, cramped quarters and each other for a chance to win their dream home. The competition came to a close as Charlotte and Sean impressed the judges and the public with the broad appeal of their West Coast-meets-modern-style home to beat out the other three teams.

Charlotte Fenton and Sean Duncan, winners of W Network’s Game of Homes

Each week, Game of Homes host Cameron Mathison guided the teams as they competed for the biggest prize of its kind. The season finale was a breathtaking race to the finish as teams had only 24 hours to correct their renovation mistakes from previous challenges. Throughout the series, judges Cheryl Torrenueva (Home to Go, Restaurant Makeover) and Jeremy MacPherson (The Re-Inventors) assessed the design and workmanship of each team’s room transformation with guest celebrity judges. Teams faced weekly challenges that would prepare them for the final presentation. In the grand finale, Cameron welcomed the public to view the finished houses and cast their vote on which team achieved the most spectacular home renovation. The public vote, along with the views of the judges, changed the lives of the winning team by awarding them with the ultimate prize.

Competitors House 1included father and daughter duo, Ray and Crystal Moon; family-focused PJ (Pawan) and N
ina Johar; vibrant and confident couple, and recently engaged pair, Disa Ottosdottir and Russell Schaper-Kotter.

Weekly celebrity guest judges have included Jillian Harris and Todd Talbot from W Network’s Love It or List It Vancouver; Drew and Jonathan Scott from W Network’s Property Brothers; Kortney and Dave Wilson from W Network’s Masters of Flip; Colin and Justin (Colin and Justin’s Home Heist, I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here); Kelly Deck (Take it Outside); and Dee Dee Eustace (Love By Design, Real Designing Women).

Celebrity Designers Colin and Justin are guest judges on W Network’s Biggest Competition Show ‘Game of Homes’ on April 28th at 10 pm pt/et

TS_Colin_Justin_WebGuest celebrity judges Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan join Emmy® nominated actor and host Cameron Mathison on the Game of Homes premiere on W Network Tuesday, April 28st at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The Vancouver-based series follows four teams of two amateur home renovators as they compete for the prize of a lifetime – a house and a plot of land to put it on.

Four teams of amateurs transform four tear downs into their dream homes in Vancouver in their pursuit of a once in a lifetime final prize. The show features contestants with larger-than-life personalities for whom this prize means a lot more than just a great renovation, it will truly be life changing. The action-packed series pits each team’s skill, ingenuity and teamwork against each other. Every week, two expert judges, Cheryl Torrenueva (Home To Go, Restaurant Makeover) and Jeremy MacPherson (The Re-Inventors) assess the design and workmanship of each team’s room transformation and each week they are joined by a celebrity guest judge.

With the interiors finished, Cameron gives the teams four days to attach and transform the exterior of their houses and an extreme facelift to their properties. 60-year-old stucco and shingles make way for 21st century roofs, siding and windows. None of the teams have ever renovated an exterior, and their inexperience brings injury and mistakes. You can easily repaint a room, but a wrong choice on exterior cladding will last a lifetime. Front-runners lose momentum and the harsh criticism of the judges proves too much for some. Yes we can confirm this statement.

Another 24-hour challenge causes egos to soar and tensions to overflow. Infighting and rumours of cheating rule the street. Teams turn on each other and themselves. After three weeks of confinement on the set, few teams have the imagination and strength to score with the judges. But one team emerges with an astonishing transformation.

Celebrity Designers CMT’s Kortney and Dave Wilson are guest judges on W Network’s Biggest Competition Show ‘Game of Homes’ on April 7th

Exhausted from the previous challenge, Cameron sends the teams over the edge with another 24-hour challenge, this time to renovate and completely redesign the master bedroom. After weeks of sleeping on the floor, teams will finally have a bed – but not until they can each create a stunning master bedroom. One team reigns supreme and a surprising new contender emerges.

Aspiring country music artists, Kortney Kayle & Dave Wilson arrived separately in Nashville within a week of each other from their native Ontario homes, both pursuing solo careers. As fate would have it, they met each other soon after at songwriter, Deric Ruttan’s farm. As the old saying goes, they have been inseparable ever since.

After both testing the waters with solo projects, they felt their true musical harmony was with each other and so was born the musical duo, The Wilsons.

In 2009, CMT CanadThe Promotion People - Game of Homesa debuted a reality show called Meet the Wilsons that brought Kortney & Dave into our homes and hearts. Cameras followed them around their Nashville home, where they play many roles: house flippers, musicians, and most importantly, Mom and Dad to Jett and Sully. During the filming of the show, they also adopted a beautiful baby girl, Lennox. We laughed and cried with them, and you couldn’t help but love this family.

Following the success of Meet the Wilsons, two singles and hit CMT videos, and The Wilson’s: Flip Out, Kortney & Dave began interacting with their fans as hosts of their own show on CMT Canada – Kortney & Dave: By Request. It’s become a favorite of CMT viewers across Canada, all while making music, performances, house flips, and raising their kids.

The Promotion People - Game of Homes

Celebrity guest judge Todd Talbot from Love It or List It Vancouver joins Emmy® nominated actor and host Cameron Mathison on the Game of Homes that airs on W Network Tuesday, March 24 at 10 p.m. et/pt. The Vancouver-based series follows four teams of amateurs as they transform four tear downs into their dream homes in their pursuit of a once in a lifetime final prize of a lifetime – a house and a plot of land to put it on.

The show features contestants with larger-than-life personalities for whom this prize means a lot more than just a great renovation, it will truly be life changing. The action-packed series pits each team’s skill, ingenuity and teamwork against each other. Every week, two expert judges, Cheryl Torrenueva (Restaurant Impossible, Restaurant Makeover, Colin & Justin’s Home Heist) and Jeremy MacPherson (The Re-Inventors) assess the design and workmanship of each team’s room transformThe Promotion People - Game of Homesation and each week they are joined by a celebrity guest judge.

This week Kitchen Crisis premieres at Tuesday, March 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT
 Todd Talbot is the guest judge. Teams have just 72 hours to completely transform their kitchen – the heart of the house. Disa and Russell bite off more than they can chew; Char and Sean’s design may not be everyone’s taste; and Crystal and Ray’s popular decision in the first challenge may be their downfall in the second challenge.

In W Network’s Love It or List It Vancouver, co-host Todd Talbot is best known for his real estate savvy, keen sense of style and quick wit. A native of Vancouver, this is Todd’s latest venture in a long and diversified journey that has brought together his passion for real estate, investing, renovations and design, as well as film, television and live theatre performance.

A real estate entrepreneur at a young age, Todd has owned and renovated multiple properties. He has also created and operated several real estate companies in marketing, design and staging and has worked with many clients to buy and sell homes. His other calling as a performer came when he was a teenager with a starring role on the hit TV series Fifteen. A veteran of the Canadian theatre community for more than two decades, he has starred in dozens of award-winning productions, a path that helped set the stage for his latest role as TV personality.

With his many accomplishments and interests, Todd is never happier than with his family or when he has been tasked with renovating or building his next project. Recently, he launched a new website, toddtalbot.ca, where he takes visitors on a journey through his own home renovation and offers a behind the scenes glimpse into his life both on and off the screen.
