Dream Jobs

HGTV Host/ Travel Channel Host

I've always been a fan of HGTV, and seriously considered applying to Scripps Media fresh out of college. Not sure I would have stood a chance. But it has been a real dream to either work for either HGTV, The Travel Channel, or Food Network.

I have spent countless hours the past couple of months on the couch watching House Hunters, House Hunters International, Property Virigins, The UnSellables, etc, etc. This weekend I began to grow frustrated because I caught mainly repeats. Hmm... maybe that says I've watched way too many.

But one new show stands out as simply amazing. The Outdoor Room with Jamie Durie, Austrailian landscaper, who travels the world to find his inspiration for amazing international landscapes.

HGTV or Travel Channel... please hire me! I promise to be your next new "it" host to travel around the world... searching out quaint international inns.

  3. I wish I still had HGTV. For some reason Scripps has pulled HGTV & Food Network from my cable provider. I miss those shows. I could totally picture you replacing that lady on the Property Virgins that think she knows EVERYTHING! hehe.
