Sebastian James Clovis (born September 1, 1979) is a Canadian home renovation television personality, DIYer and former Canadian Football League player. Clovis is the co-host of Canada's Tackle My Reno which is formerly aired on HGTV. In the show, Clovis and his co-host Sabrina Smelko help homeowners accomplish thrifty renovation projects. Clovis has also appeared in all 3 seasons of Home To Win on HGTV.
Born in London, England, Clovis migrated to Canada with his family when he was 6 years old. He grew up in the east end of Toronto, in his family home where he was first introduced to carpentry and building. He is the eldest of 5 siblings.
Clovis attended the all-boys Catholic high school, Neil McNeil High School, where he was a competitive athlete in track & field and football, which he pursued after school with the Scarborough Thunder Football Club. In his final year of high school, he attended Senator O'Connor College School where he played on the senior boys football team.
Clovis was drafted by the BC Lions in the 2005 CFL draft. After being sidelined with a torn ACL in the 2005 season, he came back to play all 18 games with the Lions during their 2006 Grey Cup winning season. Suffering another season-ending injury midway through the 2007 season, he was forced to rehabilitate from a second ACL tear. Returning from reconstructive knee surgery for a second time, he signed on with the Saskatchewan Roughriders where he played a season before ending his football career.
