SPIKE TV'S "CATCH A CONTRACTOR" RETURNS FOR A THIRD SEASON OF EXPOSING CROOKED CONTRACTORS ON SUNDAY, JUNE 21 AT 10PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - May 28, 2015 - Spike TV's popular original series, "Catch A Contractor," which follows host and master carpenter Adam Carolla along with expert contractor Skip Bedell and investigator Alison Bedell as they seek justice for wronged homeowners, is back for an explosive new season. This season not only sets out to aid 10 new families in grim living circumstances, but also gives viewers a never-before-seen glimpse behind the scenes of the tense sting operations and the meticulous coordination needed to nab these deceitful conmen. "Catch A Contractor" premieres its third season on Sunday, June 21 at 10PM ET/PT on Spike TV.

"Catch A Contractor" aims to finally turn the tables on shady contractors and educate homeowners on the warning signs before it's too late. Adam, Skip and Alison seek retribution for duped homeowners, whose construction nightmares range from the absurdly inept, to alarmingly hazardous homes that are accidents waiting to happen. They hunt down and confront unscrupulous builders, drag them back to their construction disasters, and make them finish the job right. Carolla and his expert team share their knowledge and ingenuity with the builders - not only in an effort to deliver homeowners the job they paid for, but also to give these suspect contractors the opportunity to redeem themselves.

The premiere episode features a grandmother who is left without a single working toilet and in danger of an electrical fire when she entrusts her savings to her daughter's friend, who agrees to redo her bathrooms in order to accommodate her 14 grandchildren. Months later, not only does this grandmother have to drive miles away to use the restroom in a local church, but there is a deep rift in the family due to this shady contractor.

"Catch A Contractor" is created and produced by 3 Ball Entertainment ("Bar Rescue," "Extreme Weight Loss") with JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Brant Pinvidic and DJ Nurre serving as Executive Producers. Adam Carolla is also an Executive Producer. Minerva Lopez serves as Co-Executive Producer. Sharon Levy is Spike TV's Executive Vice President, Original Series, Chachi Senior is Senior Vice President of Original Series for Spike TV, and Jeff Savaiano serves as the network's Executive in Charge of Production.

Carolla is the host of the wildly popular "The Adam Carolla Show" podcast. Launching in February 2009, it became the most downloaded podcast of all time (according to the Guinness Book of World Records) in May 2011 with nearly 60 million downloads. Carolla's television credits include "The Adam Carolla Project," "The Man Show," "Loveline," "Dancing With the Stars" and "Celebrity Apprentice." Carolla has also been involved in several feature films. In 2007 he wrote, starred in and executive produced the critically-acclaimed film "The Hammer." In 2015 he wrote, starred in, directed and produced the film "Road Hard" and wrote, directed and produced the feature documentary "Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman." Additionally, Carolla is a New York Times best-selling author of In 50 Years We'll All Be Chicks... And Other Complaints From An Angry Middle-Aged White Guy (2010), Not Taco Bell Material (2012) and President Me: The America That's in My Head (2014). His latest book, Daddy, Stop Talking!: And Other Things My Kids Want But Won't Be Getting, was just released on May 26, 2015.
