“My Lottery Dream Home” has been on HGTV for a long time, and David Bromstad is the show’s host. Celebrity Net Worth says that the 48-year-old has a net worth of $2 million. MD Daily Record, on the other hand, would put that number at around $3 million. Even though he became famous on TV, the star has also made money through real estate, brand partnerships, and design.
In August 2021, he talked to The List about his career. He said, “Everything I’ve done since high school, through college, working for Disney and Universal, and then doing the kids’ rooms… Everything I’ve done in my life has just seemed to fit. I can’t get enough of [interior design]. It’s the interest I never thought I’d have.”
David Bromstad’s Net Worth
Reports say that David makes a huge $500,000 a year hosting “My Lottery Dream Home.” He also reportedly makes an extra $30,000 a year from his appearances on several other TV shows. Celebrity Net Worth said that David’s net worth was around $2 million, but several other sites said it was between $500,000 and $1 million. David is a very successful HGTV host, but he also has a number of other side jobs that bring in money.
Back in 2015, David worked with the luggage company Kipling to make a line of “travel pieces with a spot-on vintage look.” Style Caster said that David was the one who came up with the idea for the collaboration. “I was waiting for my black luggage and the stress of trying to find it was too much. I immediately sent an email to my agent saying, “Let’s get in touch with Kipling.” It’s all about color, pattern, and looking great.”
He also has his own design company in Miami called David Bromstad Designs. The company works with clients all over the United States, Canada, and Mexico to help them with consultations and interior design. Customers can also shop at David’s other business, David Bromstad Studio, where he makes custom art and furniture. It looks like David’s being fired by Disney was a good thing.
David Bromstad Early Life
David was born in Cokato, Minnesota, in August 1973. David was interested in Walt Disney from a young age, which led him to go to Ringling College of Art and Design. He chose the animation class because he wanted to work for Disney. But soon after he started classes, David realized that he didn’t like animation as much as he thought he would and that he liked drawing more.
David told South Florida Gay News in an interview, “I went to art school because of this. I wanted to make movies for Disney. I was crazy about everything Disney. Obsessed. Not long after I started art school, I took an animation class as an elective and quickly decided it wasn’t for me. It was a lot of work. I liked painting a lot, and I was really good at it. I liked to draw, and I couldn’t imagine sitting at a desk for 10 hours and drawing the same figure that barely moved.”
David Bromstad career
When he got a job as a visual merchandiser at Disney, David’s dreams came true. After working in many different parts of the big company, he was suddenly fired. During this hard time, David did a variety of odd jobs to make money. He told the organization, “I did everything I could to get money. I only knew that I had to make art. I painted murals for hotels. I worked for other interior designers, mostly.
I was making decorations for kids’ rooms in the southeast. I was doing just that. Whatever I could. Whatever was creative. Anything that had to do with art.” “I always put myself to the test. I was always going above and beyond what I had to do at work. I knew I had to get a good photo for my portfolio. I knew it would be useful at some point, and it was. It helped me get on Design Star, which changed my life “He gave a reason.

Even though David is very creative, he had never thought about becoming an interior designer until he joined HGTV’s “Design Star.” “Reality shows were just getting started when I went on Design Star. People didn’t have it very well back then. Oh my god, I thought, what am I doing? I just said, “Let’s just do it, I have nothing to lose.” I had a lot to gain, of course,” he said.
His decision to be on the HGTV show paid off, as he ended up winning the competition and taking home the $250,000 grand prize. David didn’t waste his money on useless things. Instead, he used it to start his own interior design business. David’s fans loved seeing him on the show, so he got his own HGTV show.
David has been on HGTV for 15 years, starting with “Design Star” in 2006. Since then, he has been on shows like “Beach Flip,” “Design at Your Door,” “Rock the Block,” “Brother vs. Brother,” and more. David said about his success on HGTV, “I used to be a starving artist, and now I’m this.” It’s been a lot of fun. I’m on TV with my own shows. It’s a lot of fun. It’s almost like a dream. It’s a pretty cool job, so I’ll be sticking around.”
