At the same time, the whole team pitches in to convert a vintage wooden phone booth into wine display and storage for a new restaurant.

Host Chris Grundy challenges them to do this renovation like the pros for a chance to win cash. Chris brings in guest judges to inspect the new space and estimate the cost of the renovation.

Diana is a flight attendant and flying solo as a recently single parent to two boys. She'd been living in Costa Rica and has returned to Canada to raise her children.
