This week - Purple Team v Yellow Team
Eddy & Omar
Eddy, 34, a bellman, and Omar, 29, an industrial engineer, have been partners for just over three years. Eddy, originally from Connecticut, and Omar, originally from Puerto Rico, met at a party thrown by Omar's sister and have been together ever since. They enjoy camping, outdoor sports, cooking, dancing and working out at the gym. They have lived in their current home for only four months, though they describe the day they received their keys as the "proudest moment" of their lives. They hope that their creativity, work ethic and enthusiasm for home improvement (they just recently tore down the wall between their kitchen and family room) will make them the team to beat.
Angel & Vilma
Vilma, 42, a merchandise inventory controller, and her husband, Angel, 46, an electronics technician, are anxious to lift the burden of their 30-year mortgage. Having known each other nearly their entire lives — they first met 31 years ago — their long partnership is sure to influence their work style. Fluent Spanish speakers, they feel their energy, abilities and taste in design will be their biggest assets while competing to win their home free. Angel has electrician and carpentry skills and enjoys playing guitar and editing digital photos. In addition to having some formidable dance moves, Vilma has the distinction of being the only grandmother participating in Trading Spaces: Home Free.
