HGTV Dream Home 2017 Winner Announcement
HGTV host Tiffany Brooks surprised grand prize winner Anna Spangler of Kutztown, PA, in front of family and friends. See her priceless reaction as she learns the good news.
When Anna Spangler arrived at a wine and painting class, she thought the group of friends and her husband, a dairy farmer, were there to enjoy a fun-filled Friday night. So she was floored when HGTV Dream Home 2017 host Tiffany Brooks and a small production crew showed up to tell her that she’d won the stunning waterfront home on St. Simons Island, Georgia.
“It was surreal,” she says. “It is absolutely unbelievable!”

Watch as Tiffany Brooks surprises our winner with the good news.
Anna’s best friend Julie was in on the planning and kept the news a secret so that Anna could be completely surprised. At the wine and painting event the group painted a beach scene, which was the perfect nod to Anna’s good fortune. She was grateful that she could share the moment with loved ones.
Anna’s name was randomly drawn from 131 million entries to the sweepstakes. After entering the HGTV Dream Home 2017 twice a day almost everyday this year, she never thought this dream would be hers.
“I received the daily email reminders and during my lunch break I would enter,” she says. “It was definitely my dream.”
Anna, an HGTV super-fan, watched the special and toured the home, stating her favorite features are outdoors. “I really like its warm location, beautiful water views and nice lounge areas,” says the avid animal lover.
Our lucky winner is still amazed by her stroke of good fortune, and is looking forward to enjoying her winnings. Anna and her husband can’t wait to visit St. Simons Island later this month to see the home for the first time.
