Donair shop couple up for Canada’s Worst Handyman

ajay.jpg 

   They’re awesome at making donairs, but Country Donair owners Ajay Pal Singh and his wife Prabhjot Sarao are in contention for the infamous title of Canada’s Worst Handyman in the new season airing May 2.     Exhausted by Ajay’s failed projects, Prabhkot nominated him for the show, and they flew out to Toronto in January for the filming of the show.
    In Season 6 of Canada’s Worst Handyman, five of the country’s most hapless home renovators are tasked with overhauling a motel in Niagara Falls, Ontario. At the motel, each handyman (and one handywoman) – along with their nominator – attempts to remodel a room and transform the space into a themed, romantic, honeymoon retreat. The group must also work together to create the ultimate romantic haven, a Couple’s Spa.
    This season features a couples theme, “Honeymoon Suites”.
    A release from Discovery Channel said Ajay is a businessman and landlord. Ajay feels professionals cost way too much money so he attempts all home projects himself – working fast and cutting corners is his specialty.
    The show will air beginning May 2, and every Monday afterwards at 11 p.m. on Discovery.
