Despite the constant evolution of mankind, two things will always remain true: the curiosity to build things and the appreciation of other attractive people. After all, these two things keep the advancement of our species intact. If we didn’t like to build things, we wouldn’t be where we are today in terms of technology, medicine, lifestyle, etc. If we weren’t attracted to other humans, we wouldn’t reproduce. Why do I rant on about these two truths? Because HGTV has found a perfect way to combine them in a most pleasant way for the young adult man.
I’m coming to the point in my life where becoming a homeowner is in the foreseeable future. As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to be able to construct, enhance, and fix anything in your house. It gives you that great sense of accomplishment – “Hey, I built that. I fixed that. I am a man – hear me roar.” I actually think I proclaimed that exact quote after fixing my first recessed lighting fixture.
As a novice in all things real estate & construction, I did what came naturally to me. I took a nice comfortable seat on the couch and started surfing the TV until I found the uncovered gem known as HGTV. This channel has it all – shows about flipping houses, finding your first home, the most luxurious homes on the planet, crazy construction projects, DIY advice, and more. I was not only blown away by the wealth of information on this network, but the entertainment value was breathtaking. Let me show you what I’m talking about:
The 7 Hottest Women (& Shows) on HGTV / DIY Network
I expected to see a bunch of grunt men hammering nails into wooden steps, but instead I discovered there are absolutely drop-dead gorgeous and brilliant women who host amazing shows. Without further ado, the top 7:
NOTE: We have updated the list to include an 8th member (ranked 2A).
7. Hilary Farr (Love It or List It)
About Hilary Farr:
Hilary Farr is an international home designer who runs her own design company, Hilary Farr Design. She was born in Canada but raised in London – so she has an accent that could make a wolverine purr. Not only does she sport a rocking body and a keen eye for design, but Hilary is also currently worth approximately $7 million dollars. She is currently 52 years old but is absolutely gorgeous for any age.
About Love It or List It:
Love it or List It is a show on HGTV where couples have the tough decision of renovating their home or moving elsewhere. The show is a competition where Hilary redesigns the home based on a certain budget, while a real estate agent (David) attempts to find the couple a different house available on the market. Hilary incorporates some amazing designs and the final choice is usually a gut-wrenching decision. It’s an incredible show in the fact that you can see how much value you can add to your home by investing & upgrading certain spaces – a great watch if going through a similar situation.
6. Egypt Sherrod (Property Virgins)
About Egypt Sherrod:
Egypt Sherrod is one of those driven women who just gets it done. She is a television and radio personality as well as the host of Property Virgins on HGTV. She is also an Atlanta based realtor and founder of The Egypt Sherrod Real Estate Group. She is a profound author and speaker, who is driven by success. Egypt was born in Philadelphia and is currently 37 years old.
About Property Virgins:
Property Virgins is a show on the HGTV Network where the title exactly describes what you’d expect to find. Couples explore the marketplace as first time homeowners and have to make a decision on where they will settle their first nest as a family. The great thing about this show is it can help the first time buyers in the audience in terms of what to expect when house-hunting, the process, and realistic guidelines. It’s a fantastic show if you’re about to explore buying your first home.
5. Nicole Curtis (Rehab Addict)
About Nicole Curtis:
Nicole Curtis is the host of the HGTV show Rehab Addict; the most impressive thing about Nicole, besides her angelic face, is the fact that she is a self-taught home renovator. She also is obsessed with preserving old architecture compared to completely starting from scratch. She is the owner of Nicole Curtis Design, was born in Michigan, did not graduate from college, and is 38 years old. Absolute smoke show.
About Rehab Addict:
Rehab Addict is a show on the DIY Network where Nicole rehabs very old and disgusting homes. She completely preserves houses that probably should be demolished by renovating them into magnificent pieces of architecture. The thing I love about this show is that Nicole doesn’t just strategize from behind-the-scenes…she rolls up her sleeves and takes on some of the manual construction work with her own two hands (i.e. – demolishing walls with a sledgehammer). If you’re interesting in learning more about renovation & putting your home through rehab, check out this show.

About The High Low Project:
The High Low Project is a home-makeover series in which high-end designs are mimicked for a fraction of the cost.

1. Christina El Moussa (Flip or Flop)
About Christina El Moussa:
Christina El Moussa is a real estate agent / interior designer turned house flipper with her husband in the California area. She is a wife, a mom, a talented interior designer with amazing vision for reconstruction, and she is a drop-dead hottie. Christina was born in the USA, is currently 30 years old and is dominating the house flipping industry in CA.
About Flip or Flop:
Flip or Flop is a fun home renovation show where two ex-real estate agents purchase cheap homes (foreclosures, fixer uppers, etc.), reconstruct / redesign / enhance them, and sell them for a profit. The show is absolutely amazing and is an eye-opener to how having a vision can generate incredible results. You see some of these houses they purchase and you swear there is no way they can flip them for a profit. I love this show because it combines a keen business sense, real estate knowledge, design / construction, and oh yeah – it has the ultimate hottie in Christina El Moussa.
So from all of us here at Mount Rantmore, a big thank you to HGTV for showing us how to buy, invest, build and design, while keeping our full attention with these beautiful & smart ladies!
