The Search is Over

During Season 3 of Ugliest House in America, host Retta traveled across five regions of the United States to find — you guessed it — the ugliest house in America. After touring 15 semi-finalist homes, she called in Windy City Rehab's Alison Victoria to give the winner a much-needed $150,000 home renovation.

The Lucky Winners!

In Manassas, Virginia, Alex bought a house for him, his parents and his sister to share. The expansive home not only fits their living needs but provides office space for work-from-home days.

Before: House Exterior

Take a peek above the front door for your first glimpse of why Retta tagged this home, “The House of the Gilded Angel.” The stained-glass window features an enormous cherub: the first of many. Note the overgrown landscaping and tired exterior in need of a little TLC.
