‘Windy City Rehab’: Alison Victoria’s Net Worth and How She Got Her Big Break
Now that Fixer Upper’s Chip and Joanna Gaines are gone from HGTV, you might be searching for a new home renovation expert to watch. Have no fear, Alison Victoria is here. HGTV introduced the show Windy City Rehab earlier in 2019. Before this show, she was the host of DIY’s Kitchen Crashers from 2011 to 2016. Here’s Alison Victoria’s net worth and how she got her big break.
How Alison Victoria became interested in home renovation
Alison Victoria entered the home renovation field because of her passion for rehabilitating old homes. She also has a passion for her hometown of Chicago, and she wanted to make sure the city where she grew up always looked its best. During a Q and A with Roku, she spoke about her love for making old things new again:
The way I got into doing this show is because it’s what I really do and have done. And I lived in an old historic home in Wicker Park that was so run down, and nobody wanted to touch it, and I did. And I got it and I fixed it. And instead of people running by, they would stop and take photos of this house. And I knew I wanted to keep doing that on every single street in Chicago. The passion comes from being born and raised here.
How Alison Victoria got her big break
After graduating from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Alison took steps toward building her career. During an interview on A Drink With podcast, Alison said she always knew she wanted to be a designer. She said she got her big break because she was in the right place at the right time:
At the time I had been interning for a local designer and modeling—as much as you could model being 5-foot-1—but I really wanted to work for this high-end home builder, Christopher Homes. I ended up seeing [a colleague from my internship] at a convention and he had asked what I wanted to do. When I mentioned Christopher Homes he was like, “Chris is right here actually,” so there was my stepping stone! It’s all about being at the right place at the right time.
