Since October 15, fans have been on the edges of their seats waiting for the results of the HGTV Urban Oasis Giveaway 2012. While countless viewers loved the home, only one could win it. According to the HGTV blog, the winner has finally been chosen.
James Walley, a resident of Houston, Texas, is the winner of this incredible giveaway. On October 29, John Gidding of HGTV knocked on the Walley family door. It was just one day after James' birthday and is sure to be one of the most memorable gifts of his life. When Gidding arrives, James was working with his 7-year-old son to complete a homework assignment. His wife Denise was wrapping up a bath for their 2-year-old son.
In the middle of this routine family moment, a surprise waited at the door. James said, “My son ran up to the door and yelled up and down the hallway, 'HGTV is here! HGTV is here!'” Just a couple of days before Halloween, Gidding was definitely not an early trick-or-treat visitor. He was there to give the ultimate treat to James and his family.
James works in the IT department for a sporting goods chain and his wife just started her own medical practice. James' favorite HGTV shows are “Love it or List It” and “Property Brothers.” Denis enjoy watching “Property Virgins.” The couple has vacationed in Miami in the past and find the location of their new home quite attractive.
The Walleys also prove determination pays off. The couple entered the HGTV Urban Oasis 2012 Giveaway twice a day. They put their entries in almost everyday during the entry period and persistence made them a winner. Just a few days before Gidding arrived at their door, he gathered at a fulfillment house in Tennessee to draw the name of the winner.
Disappointed fans will have to wait for the HGTV Urban Oasis 2013 Giveaway for another opportunity to win the ultimate urban oasis. Viewers who can't wait to see James' reaction to winning the grand prize can tune into the upcoming HGTV special.
