Worst to First is a home renovation and makeover show that premiered on HGTV in April 2017. The show follows the dynamic trio of Sebastian Sevallo, Mickey Fabbiano, and Catherine Yuen as they turn the worst house on the block into the best home in the neighborhood.

The hosts, who are all Vancouver-based home design and renovation experts, work with couples and families who have purchased a fixer-upper that needs a lot of love and attention. The series follows the journey of each couple as they work with Sebastian, Mickey and Catherine to help them find a house that suits their needs and budget.

Throughout each episode, the Worst to First team undertakes the challenge of transforming a home that is in desperate need of a makeover. The show highlights the different renovation and design challenges that arise as the team works on each project. The trio works with each couple to create a personalized plan that incorporates their individual tastes, preferences, and budgets.

The team starts by identifying the most pressing issues in the home and devising a renovation plan that addresses those issues first. The hosts then dive into the project and work tirelessly to complete the transformation. Along the way, they offer tips and advice on how to carry out the renovation work themselves, ultimately making the project more affordable for the homeowner.

One notable feature of the show is the implementation of a budget challenge in each episode. The team sets a budget for each project and works to complete the renovation within that budget. If they manage to come in under budget, they use the extra funds to add additional design elements to the project. This is a great lesson for viewers, as it emphasizes the importance of budgeting effectively when carrying out a home renovation.

Sebastian Sevallo is the lead contractor on the show, and his extensive experience in home construction and renovation make him an invaluable asset to the Worst to First team. Mickey Fabbiano is the host and designer of the show, working with couples to select and implement their design choices. Finally, Catherine Yuen is a real estate expert, helping the homeowners to find the perfect property within their budget.

The show's popularity is largely due to the charming wit and undeniable chemistry that Sebastian, Mickey, and Catherine share onscreen. Their lighthearted banter and easy friendship make for an enjoyable viewing experience. This, coupled with the impressive transformations of the homes, makes Worst to First a must-watch show for fans of home renovation and design.

The show ran for two full seasons from 2017 to 2019, with a total of 26 episodes. In each episode, the Worst to First team helped a new family create their dream home. Each transformation was unique and personalized to the homeowners' tastes and preferences.

Overall, Worst to First is an entertaining and informative series that offers a unique perspective on home renovation and design. The team's ability to transform a dilapidated house into a stunning dream home is truly impressive, and the hosts' camaraderie and expertise make for an engaging viewing experience. Fans of HGTV shows like Fixer Upper, Flip or Flop, and Property Brothers are sure to love Worst to First.
