HGTV Stars Battle it Out in New Season of “Battle on the Beach”

Battle on the Beach

HGTV stars Taniya Nayak, Ty Pennington, and Alison Victoria will be heating up Oak Island, North Carolina, in the new season of “Battle on the Beach,” premiering on Monday June 3 on HGTV. The three will be joined by their respective two-person teams of promising renovators, who will be given the challenging task of transforming rundown homes into desirable waterfront properties.

The two-hour season premiere will see the teams, led by these seasoned home renovation experts, select a property from three similar four-bedroom, two-bathroom houses, sight unseen. With the series’ biggest-ever renovation budget of $100,000, the teams will be advised by their illustrious mentors as they compete for a $3,000 bonus in each episode.

Over seven episodes, the teams will face unexpected challenges, including carnival-themed games and a relay race on a historic battleship. The competition will be judged by Bryan and Sarah Baeumler, who will award the team that adds the most value to their property a $50,000 cash prize. The winning mentor will also earn bragging rights, but with twists and a last-minute room challenge, it will be a nail-biting race to the finish.

The premiere episode will kick off with kitchen overhauls, followed by living room, bedroom, bathroom, and outdoor space transformations, as the teams aim to take these tired oceanfront properties from sad to spectacular.
