Contestant Search Starts on Citytv’s New Reality Series My RONA Home

Visit for Contestant Registration

(Toronto – May 28, 2009) Do you live in the Calgary or Edmonton area and want to own your very own home? Citytv is searching for potential first-time homeowners to take part in an exciting new reality series, My RONA Home, where one lucky family will win the home of their dreams.

Starting Friday, May 29, Calgary and Edmonton residents can log on to and click on the My RONA Home logo for their chance at being selected as one of two families going head-to-head in the competition of a lifetime. Participants must include a recent family photo with each entry. Online registration closes, Sunday, June 14 at midnight (MST).

“My RONA Home was an excellent opportunity to partner with RONA and ZONE3 to create a fresh and exciting new reality series for Canadian audiences” commented Alain Strati, VP of Specialty Television and Development, Rogers Media Television

Hosted by Elissa Lansdell, My RONA Home follows two families as they compete to design, construct and decorate brand new homes over the course of just ten weeks. With the help of a team of experts and friends, each family must complete one room per episode and the public votes on who did the best job each week. After the intensity and stress of fierce competition and the back breaking labour of building the homes, the family that receives the most votes per episode wins their home, with everything inside.

My RONA Home is produced by ZONE3 and is set to air this fall on Citytv.
