CELEBRITY GUESTS

Andy & Ashley Williams, Stars of HGTV's "Flip or Flop Fort Worth"

The only way to truly understand the experiences of a military veteran? If you’re a veteran yourself. This, plus a shared love of fitness and similar goals and values, brought Andy and Ashley Williams together almost a decade ago and eventually brought them to Andy’s home state of Texas to build their Dallas-Fort Worth-based real estate business. The hosts of HGTV’s upcoming series Flip or Flop Ft. Worth, premiering in 2018, have plenty of stories from their military days to tell, but they also have some serious skills to share as they find, purchase and flip some of the most neglected homes in their beloved hometown. Andy served in the Marines, while Ashley was in the Army. They met at a gym while they were both serving tours in Baghdad, Iraq. In their flipping projects, Andy and Ashley also make an active effort to work with other veteran-owned businesses for contract work and ultimately create an impactful, pay-it-forward system within the veteran community in Texas and across the country. The mission for these two is clear: Do good work, focus on family and inspire others who are experiencing the same struggles they’ve overcome.

Like many veterans, Andy and Ashley had a bit of a rocky transition out of the military and into civilian life. While she would be commended for her hard work and discipline at her job, Ashley would hear feedback that she was too “intense” or “direct.” With a few years of experience investing in property during his time in Baghdad, Andy recruited Ashley to work with him to combine their skills — she taught him how to use spreadsheets, she has an eye for design — to move into real estate full-time. Now, Andy and Ashley have developed fulfilling careers that not only allow them the freedom to make their own schedules and stay home with their children, but also thrive thanks to some of those skills they had learned in the military that were often deemed unsuitable in civilian jobs.

Brian Santos, "The Wall Wizard"

Learn painting tips and tricks and how to paint from the pantry in a flash with seminars all weekend from Brian Santos. Brian Santos, a fourth generation painting contractor and author of best-selling how-to books, uses “edutaining” demonstrations in his television appearances and how-to’s for industry giants like Sherwin-Williams, Imperial Wall coverings, Home Depot and Lowe’s, and at home and garden shows throughout the world to create wall magic whether it be with paint, paper, or fabric. Over a touring career of more than 25 years, Santos has developed a series of “Wizard Workshops” that educate and empower audiences with simple tips, tricks, and techniques to help them tackle projects around the house with confidence. He has given in excess of 5,000 Wall Magic workshops to more than one million do-it-yourselfers all over the world! Brian has also shared his expertise on national TV, including Good Morning America, Today, and HGTV’s Smart Solutions, as well as on TLC and the Discovery Channel. Growing up and working in the San Francisco Bay area, Brian’s past clients include former San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback Joe Montana, actress Doris Day, and Star Wars creator George Lucas.
