Nathan and Mariano will skate and play hockey together. Chen further shares in a promo that he played hockey as a child after being influenced by his brothers.
Speaking about the Secret Celebrity Renovation renovations, Nathan said in a promo,
"More than highlighting me, at this point in time it's about seeing all of the people, highlighting all of the people that have helped me. I am hoping that the episode is able to show that and kind of just really emphasize all the people that have helped me along my way."
Secret Celebrity Renovation cast member Mariano believes that Nathan decided to "do something special for his community" in honor of his mother and his connection to the community.
