Evan Thomas Bio

Builder and carpenter Evan Thomas stars alongside his partner, designer Keith Bynum, in HGTV’s series Bargain Block. The couple dreams of restoring Detroit's iconic American neighborhoods one house at a time, stripping them to the studs and designing fully furnished starter homes. Originally from the Midwest, Evan received both his bachelor’s degree and a PhD in Physics from the University of Colorado at Boulder. While in Colorado, Evan and Keith developed an interest in the Detroit revitalization and, after Evan finished graduate school, they moved to Motor City to start their own company buying, renovating and selling real estate. The couple also competed in Season 3 of Rock the Block as well as Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge.
