East Texan Competing on Fox Reality Show ‘Home Free’
An East Texas native and his fiancee are competing for their ultimate dream home on FOX's new reality series, 'Home Free.'
Josh Jones, a 2005 graduate of Bullard High School, and his soon-to-be wife, Lauren, are one of the final four couples who are tasked with giving dilapidated houses complete makeovers with hopes they'll get the home of their dreams when it's all said and done.
'Home Free' was the idea of the former producer of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,' which transformed houses into incredible creations for deserving families. 'Home Free' still maintains that motive -- all the transformed homes are gifted to families who need it, and the winning couple of the show will win a dream house of their own.
The show is hosted by no-nonsense construction man Mike Holmes, who consistently challenges all the couples in the show. 'Home Free' is running for eight weeks with a couple eliminated each week, and as it stands right now Josh and Lauren are one of the final four couples remaining.
Not only do all the couples work on the house together, they must all live in the house during the process.
Lauren and Josh are currently living in her parents' condo with hopes of earning a free home through the show so they can pay off their student loans. Josh met Lauren, an Atlanta native, while he attended Savannah College of Art and Design.
You can catch 'Home Free' at 7 p.m. each Wednesday on FOX. You can watch previous episodes here and check out the preview for tonight's episode (Aug. 26) below.
From one Bullard grad to another, best of luck to Mr. Jones and Lauren!
