HGTV’s 9 Best Hosts
HGTV has been around a long time, but the audience seems to be growing due to some seriously successful reality shows like Fixer Upper, Flip or Flop and Property Brothers. The driving force behind the success is the extremely well-liked and popular reality stars who act as the host, or in some cases, co-host of the show. In many cases, these are just ordinary people who have a knack for either design, real estate or renovation and were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to do their job on-screen. Because they all need a little credit for their popularity — here’s a list of the 9 best HGTV hosts!
9. Mike Holmes and Mike Holmes Jr.
Mike Holmes is arguably one of the most widely known stars from HGTV. He first appeared as an HGTV host back in 2001 when he landed his own show called Holmes on Homes. The show was incredibly successful and it was clear that not only did Holmes have a knack for renovation, he also had a great personality that transpired perfectly on-screen. The success of his first show spawned numerous spin-offs like Holmes in New Orleans, Holmes Inspection, Best of Holmes on Homes, Holmes Makes It Right, etc. His most recent show, features a co-star, his son Mike Holmes Jr.! Fans love to watch the father-son duo on TV and it’s pretty clear, there’s another Holmes star in the making here.
8. Egypt Sherrod
This real estate savvy star has been deemed “America’s most beloved real estate agent,” so it’s no surprise she’s considered one of HGTV’s best hosts. She’s best known for hosting one of the networks highest rated programs, Property Virgins, which focuses on first time home buyers. She took over the role in 2011 and has since become a staple on the network. Her background in radio hosting and public speaking gives her the confidence to be really relaxed and comfortable on-screen. Sherrod has been credited as being super energetic with her clients and for really spending the time to get to know them. In 2015 Sherrod developed the idea for a spin-off series called Flipping Virgins which focuses more on helping buyers with property investments and is already onto its second season!
