About the Show

Dancers and expert tradesmen Ben, Dan, Liam and Malik work alongside interior designer Kelly Stone to put their renovation know-how to the test. Throughout the six-episode season, these heartthrobs work together to transform drab desert dwellings into glitzy Vegas-inspired homes, proving they know how to work a room in more ways than one.

Meet Daniel Paterson

Daniel is the team's project manager and carpenter. Back in his home city of Narre Warren, Victoria, Australia, Dan was a tradie, the term Australians use to describe hands-on tradespeople: plumbers, electricians and carpenters. As skilled as he is at building, Dan never thought carpentry was his end game. “I [couldn't] see myself just being a carpenter,” he told 9 News back in 2018.“ I always felt like I was made for something more. I always pictured myself under the big lights, all eyes on you, for the world to see what you’ve created.” Now, thanks to Flip the Strip, even more eyes have landed on Dan.

Ready to Show Off

“Between Ben, Malik, Liam and I, we have a ton of experience in the construction industry from our time before Australia’s Thunder from Down Under,” Dan told HGTV in an interview. “We are here in the United States to perform, but we also want to try our hand at building a business and deliver the best possible renovations to our clients.” To see more spicy photos of Daniel, follow him on Instagram @mrdanpaterson.
