Who Won the 2012 HGTV Dream Home in Park City, Utah?

By March 18, 2012

Follow me on:

The big question that most of us sweepers have been asking since the 2012 HGTV Dream Home Sweepstakes ended on February 17th is: who would be this year's big Dream Home winner. Well, yesterday HGTV aired their 2012 Dream Home Special, which answered that question.

A huge congratulations goes out to beauty salon manager Vicki Naggy of Acme, Pennsylvania. According to HGTV's Dream Home website, Vicki Naggy's name was drawn out of more than 81 million entries!

Vicki Naggy said she'd entered the Dream Home sweepstakes in year's past, but had a funny feeling she'd win this year. So she entered every day, twice per day, online (once on the HGTV website and once on the Front Door website).

If you didn't win, don't worry, there's another chance coming up soon with HGTV's Green Home Sweepstakes, where they give away a house that's not only beautiful, but also earth-friendly.

81 milion! WOW our chances of winning seem to get smaller and smaller every year. Very happy for the lady that won

The news gets better for Vickie. Utah is packed with men looking for wives. Several of them!

Congrats!!! Wow, I enter every year, and is amazing to see people from my area win it. Utah is different from Acme, so what a nice place to escape to from time to time. I probably even passed the HGTV van while visiting my parents. I am still in awe that we had a winner from our area. I would love a tour :) .

I watched the “live” broadcast and couldn’t help noticing that it was snowing. The temp here in NJ was in the 70′s, but it could be colder in PA. So I looked up the temp in Acme, PA and saw that the temp was in the 50′s. Not cold enough for the snow that I saw in the “live” broadcast. I’ve always wondered what would happen if the winner could not be located on the day of the “live” drawing. Now I know that they don’t actually take that chance.

I’m disappointed that I missed the special. First it stated it would air on Sunday 3/17 @8pmCtrl X then stated Sat 3/17 @8pm Ctr X. It was not on Sat nor did I see it Sun and had to wounder if Direct Tv had the schedule correct or if the channel for HGTV is another HGTV channel.
I assummed I didn’t win since I didn’t hear from HGTV by Sat. She will be in a cloud for at least a year. Good for her……….

Congratulations are in order for this lucky lady who won a new home.. I just have a question though.. Is the home in a different state than she lives in, or does the home get built in whatever state she lives in???

Either way, this is a big win, and out of 81 million entries, she has luck on her side!! Good going!

(18) Bob Rose says:

I had the impression that these shows were staged, that the winner was already in on the win, but this one sure looked real. Congrats to a fellow Keystone State Player!

(19) Sandra Grauschopf, Guide to Contests says:

Bob Rose, the surprise is real, but the show is filmed in advance of the air date of the special.

You are truly blessed, hope you enjoy your big win!

(21) Bonnie Oakley says:

I don’t think you people pay attention …… Vicki Naggy is married and her husband was very much WITH her on the show (she doesn’t need to move to Utah to find a man) — and no, they don’t build the house in the state where the winner lives …… it’s already built. In Utah! HELLO.

I am so happy for you. I took the tour online and it is really a beautiful home. I hope you are very happy there.Utah is an exciting State. I used to go through there a lot when I was driving a truck over the road. I hope you like the snow LOl. Again Congratulations

HOW COME .. HGTV doesn’t show the actual drawing of this CONTEST. It raises question of the validity of the winner then.

(25) fayet says:

I wish you well you have my blessings and how did you do it….been trying to win for years

Why are the winners always and only from the Eastern portion of the
United States?

May 8, 2012 at 5:40 pm
(27) Sandra Grauschopf, Guide to Contests says:

Err, there have been winners from Illinois, Louisiana, Chicago, and more states. See Past HGTV Dream Home Winners for more details.

(28) Lilli says:

Congratulations to the winner, but wouldn’t it be nice if someone REALLY needy won the home for a change?

May 30, 2012 at 11:30 am
(29) Rege McCauley says:

Its a random drawing. They don’t pick who wins. Maybe really neady people don’t apply that much.

(30) Virginia says:

Congratulations to the winner.

I hope HGTV plans to build a home in Newport, Tennessee.
I would definately enter that contest.

Just curious what winners actually DO with these homes. Just drove by the “Park City” (actually, Midway) home yesterday and it looks pretty vacant!!

I hope that karma is coming around. We live in Charleston, but our family has outgrown our home, and this would be perfect for us. I would share with many, too.!!! I really do feel that we are due for some good luck. 2012 was a tough year!

January 25, 2013 at 11:53 pm
(34) Brianna L says:

Congrats to her!! I hope so very badly that we win this year! I entered my mother in & we need it so bad! She withh be 58 years old on about 10 minutes! & I couldn’t get her anything for her birthday. This would be a great late birthday gift. We need literaly a house so badly.idk where we will be in a month or too! I hope that we win & if not that someone in a worse position than me does! God bless!

Best of Luck and wishes to all who entered the 2013 Dream House giveaway!!!! Congrats to all past and future winners. Prayers for all.

(36) Sandra says:

To Virginia, Don’t wait until HDGTV builts where you what them to and then enter for the house. You might not need bad enough. Take what you can get at these odds any win would be nothing less than a miracle. Just be grateful that you won no matter where it is.

All the best to you and all you family Vicki, and you don’t even have to give up the snow. God’s blessing!

February 8, 2013 at 11:05 am
(37) Aileen says:

Congrats to Vicki. That is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I have entered every year but this year the home is where I would love to be. I guess my chances are as good as everyone else’s. Good Luck everyone!

I live in Utah and drove by the 2012 HGTV Dream Home last weekend. It looks very much vacant and the yard doesn’t look like it’s been maintained for while. Such a shame!

I think is better play lottery. ??? people waste their time entering in these sweepstakes.

February 4, 2014 at 5:44 pm
(40) Sandra Grauschopf, Guide to Contests says:

The odds of winning the lottery are extremely long, too, and you have to pay to get a lottery ticket. Sweepstakes odds tend to be better, and they cost nothing to enter.
