As for the plot of the show, three teams will be formed, and all of them will renovate three identical beach houses in order to win a cash prize of $50,000.
The clash of teams will be divided into several parts, ranging from bedroom, living room, kitchen, and other parts of the beach house. And, the team that manages to wow the judges with their renovation will be declared the winners and will win $50,000.
The Winners of HGTV’s ‘Battle on the Beach’
As already mentioned above, the first season of Battle on the Beach has already ended, with the sixth and last episode airing on August 15, 2021. So, which team managed to amaze the judges the most and win the cash prize?
Starting right from the beginning, the season was divided into six parts/episodes, with each episode showing the battle of different interiors/exteriors of the renovated beach house.
The episodes were named: Battling the Kitchens, Battling the Living Rooms, Battling the Bedrooms, Battling the Bathrooms, Battling the Kids’ Rooms, and Battling the Exteriors. After an intense showdown of home improvement, it was now time for the winner to be announced.
The winners were selected by how much the newly-renovated beach houses are reappraised and by the judges’ vote. Before the renovation, all of the beach houses were appraised for $650,000.
The three teams were given $75,000 each to spend on the improvement. After all of the work was done, Team Taniya’s beach house was appraised at a value of $877,000, Team Alison’s beach house was appraised at a value of $873,000, and Team Ty’s beach house was appraised at a value of $822,000.
With that noted, Team Taniya was declared the winner of HGTV’s first-ever Battle on the Beach, and they grabbed the winning $50,000. After winning, the mentor Taniya Nayak said, “Kerry and David made me so proud today. I felt like a proud design mama.”
