About This Quiz

HGTV stars make renovations look easy! (We all know it's not, of course!) During this quiz, you get the chance to fix up a home to your standards without breaking a sweat. Once you've turned it into the home of your dreams, it will be easy to tell with HGTV star you are most like when you're wearing your toolbelt. 

Shows like "Fixer Upper" and "Property Brothers" have turned all of us into home renovation experts. Week after week, we tune in to see how Mike Holmes or Joanna Gaines take neglected properties and turn them into beautiful works of art. Make some renovation choices with these questions, and we'll compare your style and your expertise with some of your favorite HGTV stars. Then, we'll tell you which one you are most like at heart! 

You'll be able to flip a house the way you want here, and there's no danger of it becoming a flop. From countertops to wall color and kitchen appliances, this is your chance to show HGTV how much of a star you could be on their network. Will you match up with the HGTV star you feel most connected with, or will it be a surprise?
