Tiffany Brooks Named HGTV’s Newest ‘Star’

Stocks in this article: SNI

Tiffany Brooks, 33, a decorator and mother from Antioch Ill., has been crowned the season eight winner of the hit reality competition show HGTV Star. During last night’s season finale, panel member Vern Yip, along with Genevieve Gorder ( Dear Genevieve), Sabrina Soto ( The High-Low Project) and mentor David Bromstad ( Color Splash), delivered a life-changing prize to Tiffany: a contract for her own show on HGTV.

“It’s been an unbelievable experience,” said Tiffany. “I’ve learned a lot about myself as a designer during this competition. Winning the title of HGTV Star is a dream come true!”

Tiffany will bring her flair back to HGTV with her show The Most Embarrassing Rooms in America when it premieres on Saturday, September 14, at 2 p.m. ET/PT. During the series, Tiffany pairs up with DIY Network carpenter Jeff Devlin ( I Hate My Bath) to makeover the nation’s tackiest homes—transforming embarrassingly bad rooms into beautiful spaces.

The premiere episode will feature a surprise ambush of the “Most Embarrassing Kitchen in America,” found in Woodland Hills, Calif. The kitchen features an over-the-top rooster theme and dysfunctional appliances and it’s owned by a professional chef. Tiffany’s skills make the outlandish kitchen stunning, classy and modern. In addition, the makeover will be featured in the October issue of HGTV Magazine.

“Tiffany is a great addition to the network’s growing talent roster; she’s a perfect HGTV Star winner,” said Kathleen Finch, general manager, HGTV. “She’s a remarkable self-taught decorator and an inspiration to moms everywhere that anything is possible if you’ve got talent and a passion to win.”

During the HGTV Star finale, Tiffany competed against Jeribai Tascoe and Brooks Atwood at the Rancho Las Palmas resort in Palm Springs, Calif., where they each designed a luxury hotel suite in three days with the help of returning season eight designers. For a twist, HGTV’s Jonathan and Drew Scott ( Property Brothers) served as guest mentors while David Bromstad sat on the judges’ panel. Tiffany’s suite ultimately came out on top with its luxurious bedroom, gallery wall and faux fireplace.

Viewers can still cast votes for their Fan Favorite designer to win his or her own show on HGTV.com. Visitors to HGTV.com/hgtvstar can vote up to 10 times per day for the designer they believe is the best of this season’s talented finalists. Voting ends at 12 p.m. ET on Wednesday, July 24, and the winner will be announced immediately following the voting deadline.
