HGTV is the go-to channel for anyone who loves to see houses turned from run-down ruins to revived abodes of relaxation. From Flip or Flop to Fixer Upper, Love It or List It, Married to Real Estate and many more shows see home renovation experts do their thing and not only transform people’s houses but, in turn, their lives, too.

House flipping duo Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas decided to embark upon a career in property renovation, opting for the city of Detroit, Michigan to get started. After their reno work was spotted online, the two were approached about starting their own show, and thus, Bargain Block was born!

How long have Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas been together?

Speaking to Pride Source in 2021, Keith and Evan said that they’d been together for eight years.

This means that the Bargain Block duo has been in a relationship since 2013.

Speaking of working so closely as partners, Keith said to Pride Source: “This has been one of the best experiences because you really get to know somebody in this type of environment“.

Bargain Block started out in 2017

Keith and Evan had been together for four years before they were cast for HGTV’s Bargain Block.

Speaking on Couched with Carson Kressley in 2021, the two said that they were living in Colorado in a tiny house that was on a TV show.

Now, Bargain Block has been renewed for a second season which is due for release sometime in 2022. Keith and Evan also added that they have a spin-off show coming out called Rock The Block which sees them compete with other HGTV talent. On Rock The Block, they have six weeks to renovate the same houses as the other competitors and a much larger budget than they’ve had for their own show.
