    to the mark, you sort of confirmed it.  IIRC, Kevin was the 'beneficiary' of a TOH build a couple of years before he got the host job.

    •  Kevin was discovered… (4+ / 0-)

      …doing a renovation and had Ask This Old House help when he ran into trouble removing wallpaper. They helped him and Morash remembered him. Ten years later he's as fresh and eager to learn as he was at the beginning.

      As far as the Tim Taylor character went, he was clueless, like Vila, but not a complete asshole.

      The two things I remember most about the early years was, one, in an interview with Russ Morash, he assured the reporter he'd talk about anything but Vila.

      In the second, the reporter (perhaps the same one) asked Norm Abram if he and Vila had lunch together on the set. Norm simply replied, "he was a high end kind of guy—I'm not."
