16 Things You Didn’t Know About Joey Fletcher

Home To Win's biggest jokester opens up about his hidden talent, his favourite holiday, and the go-to snack you're going to want to make right now.

1. What was your first job?
My first job was at a golf driving range. I was the guy who drove around the ball picker-upper. Side note, not cool to aim at those things! It’s super loud when you get hit.

2. What’s your dream vacation?
My dream vacation is the one that I’m currently on! Perfect mix of beach and adventure. I would love to go to New Zealand.

“Try a roasted marshmallow with salt and vinegar Lay’s.”

3. What are your favourite pizza toppings?
My favourite pizza topping would have to be bacon. Although to be fair, it’s great on everything.

4. What’s your hidden talent?
My hidden talent would have to be my skills on the trampoline.

5. Do you have siblings? If so, how many?
I have seven siblings, three sisters and four brothers, three brothers in-law, 3.5 sisters in-law and one BroLaw. I am number seven in the herd. Subsequently I am the proud uncle to 11 nieces and eight nephews. You’re welcome. 🙂
And yes, Christmas is crazy.

6. Cats or dogs?
I’m going to have to go with dogs. Cats, although very snuggly, always make me feel like they’re judging me. I think it’s their eyes.

7. What was your favourite subject in school?
My favourite subject was definitely phys-ed. Although I was always quite fond of math.

8. What’s a movie you can watch over and over again?
Most recently I saw Deadpool. Incredible movie! If we’re talking older movies, I will go with 21 Jump Street.

9. What’s the last thing you bought for your home?
The last thing I bought for my home was caulking. You can never have too much caulking.

10. What’s your go-to karaoke song?
My go to karaoke song would have to be “I’m on a Boat” by Lonely Island. Very inappropriate, but I love it.

11. What’s your favourite ’90s jam/band or artist?
I’ll go with Switchfoot. Played that CD non-stop. Second side note, remember CDs???

12. Sweet or salty?
That would depend on what I’m consuming… I’m a fan of mixing the two though. Next time you go camping, try a roasted marshmallow with salt and vinegar Lay’s. Delightful.

13. Wayback playback: how did you feel the first day of your first time shooting for HGTV Canada?
My first day of filming, I was definitely nervous, but also extremely excited! I did a lot of drama and improv through high school, so this is really my dream job.

14. If you could have any other career, what would you do?
Like my Brolaw Dave, if I wasn’t doing this, my first choice for an alternative career would be as a professional athlete. Probably golf or football. If that’s not an option than I’d go with firefighter. Seems like a very fulfilling career. Plus the time off and pension wouldn’t suck.

15. What’s your favourite holiday?
My favourite holiday would have to be my anniversary. If only I could remember when it is…

16. What’s a guilty pleasure that would surprise your fans?
My guilty pleasure that I’m allowed to share on here, would be peanut butter and cheese slices on salted soda crackers. It’s my own personal invention. Patent pending.
