Ty Pennington Instagram

Ty Pennington knows how to make his new castmates feel welcome — by sharing an ear of corn, of course. The returning carpenter chowed down with newbie Joanie Sprague.

The handywoman isn't new to reality TV, however. She was the runner up on cycle six of America’s Next Top Model.

Besties Off Camera

Host Paige Davis and designer Doug Wilson don't just hang around on set, they're also fellow crooners after hours. "Went to Brandy’s Piano Bar for the first time last night. It won’t be my last," Davis captioned her kissy face photo.

It's no surprise to find the TV host at the musical spot. She spent her down time after Trading Spaces starring as Roxy Hart in Chicago on Broadway.

Pennington, handyman Carter Oosterhouse, and the show's cinematographer Robert Marish took a break under the signature tented carpentry station to ask where the time's gone: "It's only been 15years.." Oosterhouse captions, adding the hashtag #wegotold.
