EXCLUSIVE: Katy's Frank Bielec Returns to Trading Spaces


May 8, 2018

Frank Bielec, the wise-cracking, fan favorite cast member who starred in all eight seasons of the original series (200 - 2008), is returning to TLC's Trading Spaces for the reboot - and with a completely different goal.

In a 2018 reboot, many members of the original cast are returning, including Katy's very own Frank Bielec. Frank was a hit with fans of Trading Spaces because of his uncanny comedic timing, talent, and work ethic.

"It was very easy going back to the show. It was as if we left the room and came back in a moment later," says Bielec.

Original and New Cast Members

Returning members from the original TS cast include Gen, Hildi, Ty, Carter, Vern, Doug, Laurie, Amy Wynn, and show host, Paige. In addition to the veteran cast, there are three new designers, and two new painters joining in the fun.

As far as design goes, Bielec says he is no longer concerned with creating "pretty" rooms. "I am focusing on... how to make a home functional and safe. Editing your space. Most importantly, getting rid of things you don't need. Never seen a U-Haul behind a hearse," he says.

Don't Stress Over Paint Color

Creating functional, practical spaces is Frank's main priority. "I have never seen a U-Haul behind a hearse, where we are going, the Lord will provide, so I don't stress over paint color," he says.

When he's not working with the TS crew, Frank and his wife run a business called Mosey n Me, a site where they sell handmade quilting patterns.

Check out Trading Spaces on TLC Saturdays at 7 p.m. CST.
