Why David Bromstad From My Lottery Dream Home Looks So Familiar

Who is your favorite HGTV star? Do you prefer Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines or are you partial to Tarek El Moussa and Christina Anstead from Flip or Flop? Do you love to watch the twins from Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott? Or are you a fan of David Bromstad, the star of My Lottery Dream Home, who is "one of HGTV's busiest and most popular hosts," according to the network?

"Bromstad had zero name recognition before coming on the airwaves," according to a report in Star Tribune. However, after My Lottery Dream Home premiered in 2015, he "would get recognized once or twice a day. Now, whenever he's in an airport, he can expect to be stopped 20 to 30 times an hour."

While plenty of fans surely recognize the real estate savvy star from My Lottery Dream Home, you may also think that he looks familiar due to the fact that he's been popping up onscreen ever since winning a popular HGTV competition.

David Bromstad has appeared on plenty of HGTV shows

Viewers can probably tell you all about David Bromstad's ability to help newly rich folks purchase million-dollar abodes, thanks to his gig as the host of My Lottery Dream Home. But Bromstad first set himself on the path to fame (and fortune) when he won the premiere season of HGTV's Design Star in 2006. Following his win, he served as a host on the show. Entertainment Weekly notes that he continued to "[contribute] to the show variously over its seven seasons," while also making the most of the opportunity to become a star.

That's why he appeared on Color Splash from 2007 to 2013, while also showing up on HGTV Dream Home Giveaway in 2007, both HGTV Showdown and The Ultimate Color Guide in 2008, and Behind the Magic: Disney Holidays in 2009, which was the same year he started on Bang for Your Buck. By 2010, fans could watch him on First Time Design, which was followed by Best Places I've Ever Been: Disney Memories in 2011.

Things were still rolling along in 2015, which was a year filled with Beach Flip and DIY Insider, as well as HGTV Insider, and the premiere of both My Lottery Dream Home and Brother vs. Brother, before Home & Family came in 2016.

So, if you think that you've seen Bromstad somewhere before, it's likely that you've seen him a lot of places before — that is, if you watch HGTV.
