‘Man Caves’ Tony Siragusa and Jason Cameron Create Ultimate Gym for Food Network’s ‘Iron Chef’ Michael Symon

Special Episode of DIY Network Series Premieres Friday, Oct. 28 at 8 p.m. ET

NEW YORK, October 6, 2011 – DIY Network, the go-to destination in home improvement television, premieres a special episode of the popular primetime series, Man Caves, when hosts Tony Siragusa and licensed contractor Jason Cameron create the ultimate guys paradise for Food Network’s Chef Michael Symon.

Premiering Friday, Oct. 28 at 8 p.m. ET, Siragusa and Cameron create a luxury gym in Symon’s basement to get him motivated to work out.

Considering how much time Symon spends in the kitchen surrounded by food, Man Caves is there to create a much needed space to help him unwind—and stay in shape.  The Man Caves team constructs a top-notch facility with steel accents and warm teak wood using a wrestling theme. The space is masculine, functional and hi-tech. It even includes large flat screen televisions hidden behind gym mirrors and a full service juice bar.

This special episode premieres just two days before the season premiere of Symon’s show, The Next Iron Chef airs on Food Network on Sunday, Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. ET.
