Raising Hope stars Martha Plimpton (Virginia Chance) and Garret Dillahunt (Burt Chance) may not actually be a house cleaner and a pool/lawn expert, but they do play them on the Fox comedy, which premieres its third season Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. And the network is giving one lucky viewer a chance to put the stars' real-life skills to the test. "Won't it be great to have your home cleaned by someone who pretends to clean every week?" Plimpton said of the contest in a statement. "And as Virginia would say... no crime scenes, hoarders or cat collectors." Fans who meet that criteria have until Oct. 8 at 11:59 p.m. PT to submit their most "awkward" family photo at fox.com/cleansweep with an explanation of why their family is just like the "happily dysfunctional" Chance clan. Executive producer and creator Greg Garcia will choose the winner.
