Default Same gadget different Tactic

I can't believe this gimmick I mean gadget is once again on the market. This time they went all in with this guy's face. He's a famous Canadian tv show host renovator and contractor. I used to watch a lot of his shows. There were a lot of flaws in it and what I didn't like is that he used his guys to build completely new houses and most of them never went to trade school. And he went on and on about stuff not being code when even his crew had never seen a code book in their life and we've never seen a code book in his episodes.

But anyway...

I ran into him a few years ago coming out of a restaurant, he looked at my work shirt, then looked at me like “don’t you want my autograph?”.. I just chuckled.

I used to know and trade work with the plumber he had on his show (for a few seasons), the guy was cool until then, now it’s gone to his head.
He is also a tool.

I’ve worked with some other trades that have worked w/ Mike and on the show. They say that MH is a dick, and treats most of the people around him like they’re garbage. Apparently if you’re company is used on the program, you don’t get paid for the work, it’s just advertising for you. Also the show is basically saying that ALL the bad work/jobs they come across is from hacks and bad contractors, out to rip you off, but the reality is usually it’s just homeowners who have done the work don’t know what they’re doing.

Awesome insights, I had no knowledge.

He was pushing spray foam insulation for a long time. Test show its very harmful to the human system if done wrong. A lot of people had to abandon their house permanently as the gassing off of the product is highly toxic.

Do you mean Marcin from Express Rooter? He is knowledgeable, but also annoying, always looking at the camera which is a no-no. At least they use licenced plumbers electricians & tin bashers. FYI, In Ontario, where they tape the shows, Carpenters do not have to be licensed.
