Exclusive: The host for TEN’s new reality contest The Renovators is Brendan Moar.
The dashing Moar has been host of lifestyle formats including Moar Gardening, Home and Dry Spell Gardening for the LifeStyle Channel but has won the hosting job on the new TEN series.
The series will see six rundown houses being renovated by 26 renovators. Produced by Shine Australia it will air 6 nights a week on TEN and feature 6 live to air auctions.
As well as the home makeover, contestants must fight for survival in the competition, through additional building and design challenges.
Moar’s casting in the host role follows a deal negotiated with the LifeStyle Channel to release him from his current contract.
The landscaper is well-regarded in television, having twice been voted Favourite Male Presenter at the ASTRA Awards, published a landscaping book and studied Landscape Architecture at the University of NSW.
The series is expected to follow MasterChef Australia later this year.
