Joanie Sprague        

Host of TLC's "Trading Spaces"; Former Runner-Up on "America's Next Top Model"

Joanie Sprague is a former contestant on America's Next Top Model and host of TLC's "Trading Spaces."

Sprague dreamed of becoming a model from a young age. When she was 24 years old, she was a contestant on Tyra Banks’ flagship show, "America’s Next Top Model," in 2006. During her time on the show, she became famous for her old Hollywood, Grace Kelly-esque looks in photographs and clashing with Jade Cole, the most polarizing contestant in the show’s history. She went on to win runner up that season. After her run on ANTM, Joanie continued modeling internationally while also delving into acting. She’s a SAG/AFTRA actress and has worked in movies like Lone Star Trixie and Bigfoot The Movie.

Sprague hosts a podcast, "The Little Bit Podcast," where she dishes on everything about ANTM and talks about relationships, self-help, lifestyle, and DIY ideas.

For Sprague, who always knew that her modeling career had a shelf life, woodwork was a natural transition. Growing up, she and her dad would fix a lot of stuff around the house, making her skilled with the drill. She learned construction management at Pellissippi State Community College in Tennessee in 2011. Spraque is now based in California, where she runs her business Neat Freaks LA. Her shop specializes in closet and home organizing and styling. Her thriving business and modeling fame led her friend to make a tape of her working on a project. The friend sent the tape to the DIY Network and soon, she was auditioning for a show.

It was not long before she landed her first home improvement gig on TV. She was a co-host on DIY Network’s "Run My Renovation" and later joined the rebooted season of "Trading Spaces" on TLC in 2018, with fellow carpenter Brett Tutor.
