In the show, the 44-year-old Canadian artist shared that he honored his grandfather Demetrio’s last wish to show gratitude to his caregiver of eight years who had been living on rented property in Canada. “I think my grandpa would be thrilled knowing that we could maybe lessen the burden a little bit in allowing Minette to continue helping her family without it being so hard on her.”

Michael was hands on in the renovation of their ‘70s style property which was recently renovated into a more modern living space before it was officially turned over to Minette. The unexpected generosity brought Minette to tears when she found out. Sharing in the episode that, “It is so much, really, really so much. I have no words right now. It hasn't sunk in yet. It's beautiful, beautiful."
