    I was disappointed too in the type of family that won.(nothing against them personally) I would have loved to see an older, maybe teenage or adult family win this beautiful home ideally set up for an outdoor/snowboarding,ski type adventurous family. I guess the home will need to be renovated to include a nursery/playroom/childproof kitchen, yard ect.. I agree that it shoud have gone to someone who really fits into this lifestyle that a drem home in Vermont would offer. Happy to see I wasn't alone on this view. However I sill wish the winners all the best in their new home. Jealous in NY

    BORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRING. Could they have been any more unexcited?!?!? Now I KNOW you must notify them before we see them being notified. Otherwise, they might not be home, or they would probably be in their pajamas, and momma would have a mask on her face. And at least that kid could have said HGTV! Would it have killed him to play along?!? And however do we know if they really go live in their home or sell everything.

      i might be wrong but i dont believe any of the winners are still living there. i live in st. marys, georgia where one of the dream homes is and it took a good while for anyone to buy it and actually live there. glad to see it though. i am also glad they upped the cash as the taxes on all these houses will eat you up. you almost have to be already wealthy to win and stay in it.

    • Emily says:

      I agree 100%!!! :)

    The house went to the right people if you ask me. They looked like they could use everything they won!
    What a great place to have your kids grow up in! I think sometimes people don't know how to react to things. But you know they were very greatful.

    I am happy for the couple that won the house, car and cash. I wish it were me but I do not begrudge anyone for being fortunate enough to win such great prizes. I will keep entering the sweepstakes as I attempt to keep up with current home improvement idea on their web-site since it cost nothing to enter. Maybe one day I will be on the receiving end. Until then, congratulations to the young family that won and have fun on the slopes :-)

    I pulled my boyfriend from the kitchen to see the "looks on the winners faces"… yeah, we were both sadly disappointed. I'm sorry but you just won a house that costs HOW MUCH? A new vehicle AND $500,000… and all we get is a smile and "this is great"… I understand they already knew they won but seriously you would have heard me from a mile away! Especially being on TV, lol.

  7. Linkay says:

    We all enter these sweeps, full of excitment of the chance to win! We have our fantasies about the lifestyle, skiing, beautiful seasons, new friends, etc. We wait for THEE DAY and the winner is……
    Mr. and Mrs Duhhhh.
    They will never move into that home.
    They will never move out of the home their in……..not that couple.

    I'm surprised by the comments posted here. The couple seemed shocked and maybe even a little shy from all the attention. I do not expect people to drop to their knees and weep with gratitude. This was a nice reveal from classy, normal people who do not feel the need to play act like the over-the-top people on Extreme Home Makeover. I liked their family and I think they reacted like any normal, non-desperate couple would. Good for them. I hope they get to vacation up there before they are forced to sell.

  10. Jacqueline says:

    Does anyone know if the people who won the dream home have gone to see it yet? I have not found anything on the website about that. I wish them lots of luck! Good luck to everyone in the coming sweepstakes for the Greenhome and the blog cabin, also the dreamhome for 2012! I have so much fun entering these things! Good luck everybody!
