New York [Nov. 1, 2019] A Brady Bunch superfan in Charlotte, North Carolina, Lisa Shaw, has won the highly-coveted grand prize of HGTV’s “A Very Brady Contest”—a once-in-a-lifetime, six-night stay at the fully renovated, iconic Brady Bunch house in Los Angeles. In addition to the stay at the house, Lisa and up to seven guests will receive roundtrip airfare, a curated LA tourist experience and $25,000. HGTV received more than 3,000 video submissions from Brady Bunch superfans during its “A Very Brady Contest,” and America voted on a winner from nine finalists.
In her winning video submission, available to watch at HGTV.com/Brady, Lisa speaks to her love for The Brady Bunch, as evidenced by the groovy ‘70s memorabilia throughout her home, including a painting of the world-famous Brady Bunch house. Her video also shows her as she visits her local butcher “Sam” to buy his juiciest pork chops and heads to the beauty salon for a Carol Brady-inspired haircut.
“Some people say I take it too far and even live like a Brady,” said Lisa. “But I grew up with the Bradys, and it brings me back to a better, wholesome time in my life and reminds me of my childhood.”
In addition to Lisa’s grand prize win, eight runners-up in the “A Very Brady Contest” were awarded $500 each. And, HGTV viewers who participated in the finalist voting process were entered in a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of ten framed, limited-edition, commemorative posters for A Very Brady Renovation—autographed by the series’ stars.
A Very Brady Renovation—the highest-rated series in HGTV history—featured the full-scale overhaul of the real Brady Bunch house in Los Angeles. Exterior shots of that house were often used to establish a sense of time and place for the Brady family. HGTV executed a show-stopping transformation of the home by adding 2,000 square feet to its original footprint—all without compromising its instantly recognizable street view. The house was replicated to include the iconic floating staircase, the orange-and-green kitchen, Greg’s attic, the kids Jack-n-Jill bathroom and many more memorable spaces. The Brady Bunch house will forever hold a special place in television history and American pop culture.
