HGTV Smart Home 2017 Winner Announcement
HGTV host Tiffany Brooks surprised grand prize winner Stacy Bolder of Tomahawk, WI, in front of family and friends. See her priceless reaction as she learns the good news.
When Stacy Bolder arrived at a local sports bar and restaurant, she thought her family and her husband, a local radio host, were there to enjoy a laidback Sunday brunch for her upcoming 40th birthday. So she was floored when HGTV Smart Home 2017 host Tiffany Brooks and a small production crew showed up to tell her that she’d won HGTV Smart Home 2017, a modern desert escape in Scottsdale, AZ.
“It is so surreal,” she says. “I never in a million years thought this would ever happen to me!”
Stacy’s sister and brother-in-law were visiting from Arizona and were in on the planning. They kept the news a secret so that Stacy and her family could be completely surprised.
