For the past 10 years we’ve watched Mike take down bad job after bad job, rebuild people’s homes and turn three simple words into a code of honour. Now, it’s time to get to know the man behind the overalls. We finally get the answer to the number one question on everyone’s mind: What’s Mike really like?

This special celebrates Mike’s 10 years on television and how his dedication to “make it right” has changed peoples’ lives—especially his own! For the first time, we take a look back at Mike’s humble beginnings and learn how he went from local contractor to international celebrity.

Mike let's us call all the shots and he’s ready to answer the tough questions. He shares his favourite moments and projects from the last 10 years and we get a glimpse of what really happens when the cameras aren’t rolling.
