2015hostDamon Bennett: 2015

Damon began working in the construction industry when he was just 15-years old. He started as a bricklayer’s helper and then moved up working as a roofer, framer and renovator whose professionalism on the field was surpassed only by his expertise.
While working on a client’s home, Damon was approached by producers of the hit television series, Holmes on Homes® to work permanently on the Mike Holmes’ Crew. His undeniable skill, work ethic and craftsmanship led him to escalate quickly within the ranks, becoming Crew Supervisor and Mike’s lead hand on all of his jobsites.
Fans of the series came to know Damon as Mike’s right-hand man, and then as Mike’s co-host on Holmes Inspection. It wasn’t long before more than 1.5 million viewers in Canada were tuning in weekly, watching Damon take the reigns on getting the job done right.
For nearly ten years, Damon was an essential component to the success of every one of Mike Holmes’ jobs, and as leader of the pack on Mike’s third series, Holmes Makes It Right, he was a mentor to everyone on the Crew. All series air worldwide and Holmes Inspections is available on Netflix.
Damon’s uncompromising diligence and unyielding dedication to every job proves that there is honour in a good day’s work. He currently specializes in carpentry, structure reinforcement and full construction coordination, but it is his commitment to helping others the best way he knows how which continues to drive him forward on every task he takes on.
Damon is currently in development on a new series of his own, all the while running, Bennett Construction and serving on the board of Military Minds. Damon is committed to helping returning vets. You can follow Damon @damonBennett_


Jillian harrisJillian Harris: 2014

Jillian Harris first charmed an audience with her irrepressible humor and emotional honesty on ABC’s “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” She will now have the chance to share her wealth of experience in the design industry as co-host of Love it or List it Vancouver. Growing up in the picturesque Peace River valley in Alberta was a catalyst for Jillian’s creativity and vivacious character.

A self- proclaimed “polished redneck,” she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty or climb a ladder with heels on. Whether applied to design or daily life, she carefully combines elements of the metropolis and country, low brow and high class, and the classic versus the absurd. From ATV’ing and campfire roasts to perusing the shops of the Merchandise Mart for design trends- or searching endlessly for the perfect pair of heels- Jillian’s motto about ‘doing it all’ never rests. While this lifestyle makes Jill the quintessential “busy bee,” those close to her would say her passion to make others happy might be the highlight to her multi-faceted personality. Having previously hosted Canada's Handyman Challenge and having worked as a designer on Extreme Makeover: Home Addition, co-hosting Love it or List it Vancouver is a natural fit for Jillian.

Outside of her work in television, Jillian jets between the U.S. and Canada to run her firm Jillian Harris Design, pours her heart and soul into her website jillianharris.com & prides herself at always putting family & personal life first, traveling, hosting dinners at her home in Kelowna, taking in fine fashion and, of course, cuisine.
