Is Bryan Baeumler German?
Starring in HGTV’s Renovation Island/Island of Bryan, Bryan Baeumler is a 47-year-old television host on several shows.
As a former handyman and businessman, he transferred those career skills into a series of TV shows centred around home renovations in Canada and expanding to hotel renovations in the Bahamas.
Although he is originally from Oakville, Canada, Bryan’s second name (Baeumler) is of German descent.
@Bryan_Baeumler confirmed his German heritage when responding to a tweet regarding speculations surrounding his nationality.
Inside Bryan Baeumler’s German roots
In November 2019, Bryan featured in a HGTV blog piece named ‘Bryan Baeumler Shares His Favourite Family Traditions During the Holidays’.
When asked about his holiday heritage, Bryan answered:
“As you may already know from my surname, I have a German background.”
The TV host then explained a German tradition he likes to incorporate into holiday celebrations:
“It is a German tradition to open one present on Christmas Eve. I have continued this tradition with my four children: we open a single gift on Christmas Eve while we set up a plate of cookies and a glass of milk for Santa. We also light the tree and play holiday music. This helps us spread out the festivities a little instead of just tearing into the entire pile of gifts come Christmas morning!”
Despite sharing very little about his German origin on social media, Bryan has previously expressed an interest in his nationality.
In 2013, @Bryan_Baeumler took to Twitter to define his new favourite word ‘Backpfeifengesicht’, which happens to be a German term meaning “a face that’s begging to be slapped”.
Over on Instagram, @bryanbaeumler has also previously shared news of his family life including his Father’s time in hospital.
Where does Bryan Baeumler live now?
In 2017, Bryan and his wife Sarah bought a defunct abandoned beachfront resort in South Andros, Bahamas, and renovated it into a new sustainable luxury resort, Caerula Mar Club that they own and operate after opening in December 2019.
HGTV has recently aired the third series of Renovation Island, also known as Island of Bryan.
The show follows Bryan and Sarah Baeumler as they leave their home and business behind and move their family to an undeveloped island in the Bahamas in order to renovate and restore a run-down beachfront resort.
During the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bryan reportedly remained at the hotel on South Andros to avoid crowded international travel for the safety of his family.
They eventually made their way home to Canada for Christmas and quarantined while enjoying some snow.
As of today, it is thought that Bryan is located with his family in The Bahamas due to the island surroundings in recent social media uploads.
