Plot Synopsis

In this reality series, five high-fashion male models work as handymen at Hott and Handy, a Manhattan home design and construction service, as interior designer and former model Kim Gieske lends her insight to ensure that the clients' creative expectations are being met. Each 60-minute episode features the models working on a single job, such as transforming a wealthy suburban princess's attic into the closet of her dreams, as the men of Hott and Handy also stay fit and prepare for their upcoming modeling jobs. The crew includes: Shane Duffy, the owner of Hott and Handy, who brings in the clients, recruits model friends for the business, and has been featured in campaigns for Daniel Dolce Italy, GNC, Johnny Walker, Banana Republic, ASICS, Marlboro and Under Armour; Sandy Dias, the company's foreman, who runs the construction team by the book, manages the execution of all projects, and has worked with Hugo Boss, Neiman Marcus, Mercedes-Benz, Brunello Cucinelli, Ethan Allen, Tommy Hilfiger and Bloomingdales; Donny Ware, the comic relief of the crew, who, even after a car accident five years ago that left his face partially burnt, has modeled for Abercrombie & Fitch, Lacoste, Michael Kors, Bottega Veneta and Ted Baker; Gage Cass, the artist of the group, who works as a designer on large-scale performance pieces for creative festivals, has modeled for Jose Cuervo, Coke Zero, Gilded Age, 2(X)IST and Microsoft, and has recently expanded his career into stunts and acrobatics; Mike Keute, often called the group's brains and muscle, who was raised in a family of Mr. Fix-Its, has worked for Calvin Klein, Giorgio Armani, Brunello Cucinelli, Saks Fifth Avenue, GQ and "Men's Health," and is now pursuing his law degree and MBA simultaneously at Fordham Law School; and Kim Gieske, a top interior designer and home stylist, who is is a "New York Times" bestselling author of "Paige by Paige: A Year of TRADING SPACES" and whose celebrity client list includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Chloe Sevigny, Donatella Versace, Pamela Anderson, Martha Stewart and Ivanka Trump.
