Skip & Alison Bedell    

Hosts of Spike TV's "Catch a Contractor" and FOX news FOX & Friends DIY on-air segment host

Skip and Alison Bedell are a husband and wife duo, known for hosting the show "Catch a Contractor" on Spike TV, a program that attempts to educate people on the do’s and don’ts of hiring contractors, as well as helping people who have been wronged by shady contractors get justice.

Skip Bedell is a licensed Home Improvement Contractor. His love for building began at a very early age as he watched and learned carpentry skills from his grandfather and father. With Skip being a quick study, he soon learned to build as a teenage apprentice and began working on hundreds of homes. It was these earliest jobs where he acquired his vast knowlege of the trades, working under master carpenters, licensed electricians, plumbers and masons.

During the 1980's and early 1990's, Skip worked in all aspects of home renovation while attending college, where he studied business, and eventually pursued a career in financial planning in the mid 1990's. However, his love for construction kept calling to him and he eventually had to listen. He put down the pencil and picked up the hammer, returning to construction in the late 1990's. In the early 2000's, he obtained his license to be a Home Improvement Contractor, and began running his own business. It wasn't long before his company had multiple crews working on homes; old and new, large and small.

Skip's knowlegeable and friendly persona landed him roles in local television commercials for building products, e-learning modules, and a holiday gift segment on NBC's Today show demonstrating tools with Vanessa Rae.

Alison Bedell is a licensed Private Investigator who got her sleuthing experience while working as a Probation Officer; a career she began in 2007 that she continues in today. Some of the skills she acquired in that career which carry into her PI work include tracking absconders, record searches, surveillance, working undercover and apprehending subjects. While on the job, she has earned a Distinguished Pistol Expert bar, a Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) recognition award for DWI arrests and a County Legislature's Probation Officer of the Month award. Prior to her career in law enforcement, she worked in County Personnel for a number of years. Ultimately she decided that she wanted to serve the public by combining use of her Bachelors in Psychology and her love of law enforcement, where she can "correct and protect".

Together, they assess the property, learn about the contractor, and set up a sting operation in order to protect the homeowners from potentially deceitful business deals.
