Frank Fontana Biography

Celebrity designer and lifestyle expert Frank Fontana is an Emmy nominated TV and radio host, bestselling author, and brand ambassador to Americas most beloved Companies. Fans of HGTV recognize Fontana as the face of several hit shows for the HGTV network and as regular contributor to NBC’s TODAY show. He built his reputation in the world of home improvement and interior design programming as the beloved host of “Takeover my Makeover” and shortly after for the wildly popular “Design on a Dime” franchise, one of HGTV’s longest-running and highest-rated programs.

Many recognize Fontana as the real life Italian Stallion of the lifestyle world, and underdog winner of ABC Television Network's reality competition "The Great Domestic Showdown," where he won the entire competition and launched his now booming television career.

In his mid 20s, Fontana, a student of real-world design, started his own company where he created theme parties and designed nightclub decor through out the country. After a strategic move to Los Angeles, Fontana found himself creating cutting edge interior designs and spearheading events for entertainment industry elites, Fortune 500 companies and Hollywood celebrities such as Halle Berry, Dennis Quaid and Jeff Goldblum.

Today, Fontana is best known for his innovative vision learned from years of event and commercial design with traditional home design basics, making him one of the most versatile and fresh new designers on the lifestyle scene today.

Fontana is a published expert in the lifestyle world and author of top-selling DIY design book "Frank Fontana’s Dirty Little Secrets of Design." Fontana is a regular contributor to national media outlets, and he also currently hosts popular radio programs for both WGN radio 720 AM and an online podcast series boasting more than 9 million program downloads to date.

Frank Fontana Reviews

  • "Our event went well and Frank’s appearance was a success. The seating area was full during his appearance on stage and his presentation was engaging and informative and relative to our event. Frank was great to work with; he is very professional and his experience in design was the perfect fit with our home show this year. He was personable, fun and spent time with audience members answering questions, signing books and taking pictures. He was great!"
