Congratulations to Amanda Rodriguez of Las Vegas, Nevada!

She is the proud winner of DIY Network Ultimate Retreat 2018, a grand prize package worth over $800,000. A Las Vegas administrative assistant and mother of three, Amanda's name was randomly drawn from 64.5 million entries.

Amanda said she and her two older daughters used to sit around their kitchen table talking about what they would do if they actually won some day. “We made plans as if it would happen,” said Amanda after receiving the extraordinary news. “We even kept a spreadsheet of all the home sweepstakes the networks offer.”

Still, when the dream became a reality, it was hard to believe. “I kept thinking, ‘This can’t be real,’” Amanda confessed. “When I received a message from DIY Network, I knew I needed to call back, but I was in such shock, I couldn’t move!”

The kitchen, with its classic design and rustic elegance, is her favorite space in the house. “I always love the kitchen most,” she said. “I can just see myself there.”

Amanda says she entered almost every day during the sweepstakes period. “It’s just so exciting!” she exclaimed. “It’s been a really awesome experience.”
