$250,000 Challenge is an HGTV reality competition series that pits five families from the same neighborhood against each other in a showdown for the rights to a huge cash prize and a newly renovated home courtesy of HGTV. HGTV is famous for its acclaimed line-up of home and garden renovation shows. In this series, the five families compete in challenges based around the various themes of HGTV's original programs. The family that can win the most points from a panel of judges for their designs wins the grand prize. The judges that decide the winner are the hosts of other HGTV shows, so the families can rest assured that the officials know a thing or two about contemporary design. The challenges chosen for the competition cover a wide range of design elements, including indoor and outdoor style. $250,000 Challenge is HGTV's ultimate contest, full of inventive design techniques you can try in your own home.
