In a new episode of the hit HGTV series Celebrity IOU, Howie Mandel will try his hand at home renovation. He works to give Rich, his best friend and road manager of 30 years, a sleek and contemporary home upgrade.
Howie is a multi Emmy® Award nominee, a comedian, television personality, actor, producer, and host.
The episode premieres on Monday, April 25, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and also available to stream on discovery+. The episode will feature Howie Mandel as he teams up with real estate and renovation experts Drew and Jonathan Scott to transform Rich’s outdated bachelor pad into a modern showplace.
“What began as a working professional relationship became a personal relationship—we’re like brothers,” said Howie. “Now, for the first time, I get to be a small part of making sure that everything is in order for him to be able to perform at the highest level.”
During the episode, Howie wishes to help update his friend’s condo into a comfortable yet sophisticated place. He says that Rich is more like family and has had a difficult year with the loss of his father. Howie will get his hands dirty with Drew and Jonathan to demo the kitchen. They rip out old carpets and paint a bold feature wall. The end result will be a reimagined kitchen, dining, and living area. As for the main bedroom, we see a functional flow and stylish finishes.
“Life isn’t always easy,” Howie added. “This has been a hard time and nothing makes you feel better than to be a small part of doing something for somebody else.”
