WAYNE, N.J., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Haier joins the hit unscripted competition series HOME FREE for the inspirational second season premiering on Thursday, June 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. This season, contestants will be competing to win a home for their personal heroes. Former NFL player, Heisman Trophy winner and sports analyst Tim Tebow will take the game to an all-new level, co-hosting alongside series creator and professional contractor, Mike Holmes, who returns for Season Two.
"We are so happy to be a part of a show that succeeds on so many levels—as a standout when it comes to home construction and interiors and on a humanitarian level as well," says Paul Riley, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Haier. "This upcoming season will only continue that, with another great concept to add to already great programming."
A full lineup of Haier appliances is featured and will outfit each of the expertly built homes under the guidance of Holmes and Tebow. Each week, Holmes and Tebow will put the contestants to work while testing their skill, strategy and drive. The contestants who prove themselves will move forward in the competition, while the contestants who can't meet expectations face eliminations. Holmes and Tebow will be with the competitors every step of the way demanding that they meet the highest standards while also sharing their expertise and guidance. When only two contestants remain, they will compete to win the ultimate Dream Home for their hero and unbeknownst to them, a $100,000 grand prize for themselves.
