From The Ground Up

One of Canada’s most popular television personalities and home decorators with her own long-running television series, Debbie Travis, created a new primetime reality show series, but with a twist.  Travis brought together 12 young Canadians between the ages of 20 and 30 who needed a break or were just plain disillusioned and a bit directionless, to give them a chance to win cash, fame, or at least learn some new skills for a future career.  The task?  Literally building a luxury mansion from the ground up, all in just five weeks.
