“All For Nothing?” & UsedOttawa: Be on TV! has partnered with the new home renovation reality series All For Nothing? airing across Canada on the W Network early 2013.  That’s right, we’re hitting the small screen and we need your help!

First, a little about the show:

All For Nothing? features two households who face the challenge of fixing up their design-deficient houses on a next to zero budget. The sellers with the highest increase in value at the end of their two week renovation, win commission-free listing services from top realtor, Paul Rushforth. The homeowners also receive ideas and tips from Rushforth and from award-winning designer, Penny Southam throughout the renovation process.

Participants must find creative ways to collect items and get help from their community for renovations to update their homes with a pre-listing makeover. This is where you come in! If you have furniture, renovation supplies or a service that you think will help a contestant, simply post a free ad on and include the hashtag #UsedAFNTV in your ad description.  This way the show producers, contestants and UsedOttawa can find you easily.

Want to be on TV? All For Nothing? is looking for contestants! Come ON, you know you’d be perfect for this show! Just think of how great your house will look and how AMAZING you’ll feel after connecting with people in your community, recycling, keeping stuff out of the landfill, being famous… If you’re interested or you know someone who is, contact the good fine people at All For Nothing? and let them know: Click me! I’m awesome & I should be on TV!
