Battle of the Design Trades! New TV Show Seeks ‘DIY Dominators’

Are you ready to go head to head in a landscape design smackdown? Can you can you out-tile the competition? Know someone who can keep his or her cool when a welding contest really heats up? Then consider applying to become a contestant on DIY Dominator, a series premiering July 30 on DIY Network. Each episode will pit three skilled competitors against one another in construction and home improvement competitions (in a specific trade) as they battle it out to earn the title of DIY Dominator and a $10,000 grand prize. The casting call seeks problem-solvers who are skilled and experienced in the fields of landscape design, masonry, welding, decking, or finish carpentry (a field notorious for its smack talk, or so a slightly tipsy Bob Vila once told us). Go here—scroll down to “DIY Dominator”—to download an application. Submit it no later than Tuesday, June 1 to be considered.
