Stardom runs in the Holmes family. The high profile family which originates from Toronto, Canada, has been around the reality TV scene for decades. The patriarch of the family Mike Holmes set this trend with his hit show Holmes on Homes. The torch was carried by Mike Holmes Jr. who works alongside his father. But this was not always the case.

He did make an appearance on Holmes on Homes at 14 and was intimidated by the cameras. Now a veteran actor, Mike first wanted to make a name in firefighting but was pulled to his father’s work.
