15 Former HGTV Hosts: Where Are They Now?
13. Chris Harrison
We’re pretty sure no one needs to be told what Chris Harrison is up to now since he’s been the face of ABC’s widely popular Bachelor franchise since 2002. Before that Harrison held various hosting gigs throughout his career beginning with HGTV’s Designer’s Challenge in 1999. After that he moved onto the short-lived Mall Masters and Who Wants to be a Millionaire. He’s also exercised his hosting chops with award shows like the American Music Awards, and red carpet coverage at the 2009 Primetime Emmy’s. His most prominent role by far has been in ABC’s Bachelor franchise which includes The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, Bachelor Live, Bachelor In Paradise and Bachelor In Paradise: After Paradise.
12. Matt Fox and Shari Hiller
Matt Fox and Shari Hiller are two of the most memorable stars because they were the hosts of HGTV’s very first show, Room by Room, which aired on the network from 1994 to 2006. Not only are they the first hosts hired on by the network, but their show is the longest running decorating show in history with over 350 episodes. When the show ended they took a much needed break from filming, but in 2010 went on to host Around the House with Matt and Shari on PBS. They also created their own company, FoxHill Studios.
