The Screengrab

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 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.
