HGTV will be airing a Dream Home special tonight at 7 pm Eastern Time where you can see the winner of the 2013 HGTV Dream Home Sweepstakes's reaction to the news that she had won a life-changing prize. But you don't have to wait that long to find out who won -- they've already announced the winner's name. Are you ready to hear it?

The 2013 Dream Home winner is Carole Simpson of Columbia, Tennessee. Over 77 million entries were received this year, and her name was drawn from among all those people.

Carole said that she's been entering sweepstakes for years. Her advice: "Those who didn't win, keep trying. If it happened to me, it could happen to anyone."

That's so true. You never know when an entry that you throw into the hat will be a big winner. And if you didn't win this sweepstakes, here are some other fantastic prizes that you can enter to win today:

I hope she is deserving of it. I watch so many of the HGTV programs that give away the free room crashes and the homes are always occupied by people who could pay for it themselves

I need that house, it was mine!!!!

(11) annie says:

I agree with John…it seems like the winners are never the truly needy. I for one long for a real life “Charlie” (think Willy Wonka) to win–eager, sincere, and truly a good steward.

(12) Joyce says:

Congratulations, I so hoped it would be mine and my family’s! Since my husband lost his job 6 years ago and hasn’t been able to find work, it hasn’t been easy. But hopefully we’ll have another chance next year. Enjoy your new home, thank you for serving our country and God bless!

Sincere comgrats! Enjoy that jewel! You are already blessed because you won! May God continues to bless you and your loved ones!
We all enter because we all wanted to win and since it is a gamble or similar any one can win regardles of economical or social status and only God knows who really needed it and that’s the winner. Someday when He decides I will win one! I think I need one but only He knows who needs it more!
Love you all and wish all to win!!!

Why does it have to be won by a needy person?

(22) Mona says:

A needy person no offense, couldn’t keep the taxes/maintenance on a new home current. If there were cash gift included it would run out eventually. Get it now? You’re poor. Poor people don’t win things my dear.

April 19, 2013 at 3:52 pm
(23) Carey says:

To say “poor people don’t win anything my dear” is distasteful at the very least. I would like to believe that mean spirited people don’t win. Rich or poor this is a dream. Dreams can come true for everyone.

(24) Sherene Robinson says:

Congrats! I’m so happy for your Blessing. Don’t pay any attention to the Nay Sayers. Their just jealous they didn’t win. I know if God can bless you to win than he can do it for me! Enjoy every second in your new home. Thanks for serving your country and protecting us from enemies. You deserve this blessing because God said so!

Poor people can’t keep up with the taxes but you know, smart ones will always sale and profit. Peace!
