In her HGTV show "Windy City Rehab,"Alison Victoria, an interior designer based in Chicago, takes on property renovations in her hometown. Before this, she became the first female host in the popular Crashers franchise on DIY Network's "Kitchen Crashers."
How Wealthy is Alison Victoria?
Alison Victoria's net worth has increased significantly in the past ten years. She has a fortune of about $3 million. Right now, Alison Victoria is doing well. Most of her money probably comes from hosting "Windy City Rehab," but she does many different things.
Victoria works as a designer, host, producer, and sometimes writes. This lets her make a lot of money. She is also making her own wine.
Now that Alison is becoming famous, businesses and brands want to work with her. In February 2022, she shared on Instagram about a new partnership with Blue Star Cooking.
"I'm proud and excited about my partnership and new color collection with Blue Star Cooking! It's a field of greens, and you don't want to miss it," Victoria wrote on Instagram.
How Did Alison Victoria Get Into Designing?
In a 2014 interview with Refinery29, Alison Victoria shared her journey. She started redesigning her friend Britt's room at just 8 years old. They changed the carpet to wood flooring, painted everything peach (it was trendy in the '80s), and moved the furniture around.
Even back then, Victoria paid attention to space and how to use it well, testing ideas in her shared bedroom with her sister. After starting her own design company, Alison Victoria Interiors, she saw the next step was television.
When Alison got an email about a reality show for Chicago designers, Alison knew it was her chance. "I replied immediately, telling them they didn't need to look further," she said.
Interestingly, show producers met Victoria at Trump Tower in Chicago while she was working on a project. However, what they offered wasn't what she wanted.
They suggested Alison be a ghost designer on a show called House Crashers, not an actual ghost but someone who designs behind the scenes. She agreed, knowing it wouldn't be for long. In a few weeks, she found herself in front of the camera.
By 2011, Victoria became the first female host of Kitchen Crashers, leading her to Windy City Rehab. If it wasn't for her determination and courage, who knows where she would be now.
Given her love for renovation and design, Alison might still be restoring dull buildings, but we wouldn't get to watch. Thankfully, she never gave up, letting us join her on this exciting journey.
