NEVER EVER DO THIS AT HOME returns may 12th on discovery canada!

It shouldn’t need explaining. Simple common sense dictates that there are just certain things that one must never – ever – do, especially at home. Turning this accepted wisdom on its head for an explosive second season (literally!), NEVER EVER DO THIS AT HOME returns to Discovery on Monday, May 12 with back-to-back episodes at 9 and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. Check out the season 2 sneak peek!

The 12-part Bell Media original series blends science, danger, and comedy when hosts Teddy Wilson(INNERSPACE) and Norm Sousa (The Sketchersons) conduct madcap experiments and test the limits of what a house can withstand – and beyond. A big hit with viewers, last year’s NEVER EVER DO THIS AT HOME debut ranks among the Top 5 series premieres in Discovery Canada’s history among Adults 18-49. With this track record behind them, Wilson and Sousa are diving into even crazier antics and closer calls for Season 2.

Moving on to another house – there was nothing left standing of the Season 1 farm after these guys were through with it – these two dangerously unqualified hosts precariously mix, ignite, flood, explode, and otherwise wreak havoc on the contents of a southern Ontario home. This country property also came with a pond and a hunting cabin – because bigger is better, right?

Never inflate a giant bouncy castle indoors. Never paint a house with a cannon. Never build a skating rink inside a house. But why? Don’t most people – secretly – want to know what would happen if they ignored the safety warnings? As Wilson and Sousa test these “nevers” and more, staging elaborate trials using conventional products, household appliances, volatile gases, and professional-grade explosives – essentially whatever they can get their hands on – they reveal the extreme dangers lurking behind commonplace warnings. NEVER EVER DO THIS AT HOME also features a team of special effects and fire safety professionals to maximize the consequences – and keep Wilson and Sousa out of harm’s way (most of the time…).

With 20 cameras capturing every angle – including highly-specialized “Phantoms” that can record up to 5,000 frames per second for the ultimate in slow-motion replay – the series showcases the legitimate physics and chemistry behind the outrageous cause-and-effect consequences of Wilson and Sousa’s experiments in stunning detail. These highly-advanced cameras capture the exact instant when the ordinary becomes extraordinary, whether it’s a pineapple exploding, propane gas cascading slowly, or a flame and igniting into a glorious blaze.
