You'll never believe what HGTV stars looked like before they were famous


There's life before HGTV, and life after.

Before HGTV's biggest stars rose to fame, they lived totally normal lives. We know it's sooo hard to believe, but these home improvement buffs who we've all come to know and love rocked some unfortunate fashion trends, went through their awkward teenage years and even celebrated holidays just like everyone else.

Nicole Curtis, star of "Rehab Addict," spent her teenage years doing high kicks on the cheerleading squad -- and she looked totally adorable with her uniform!

Chip Gaines of "Fixer Upper" was a total hunk in high school, but we can't say the same for "Property Brothers" stars Drew and Jonathan Scott.

The most surprising revelation of all is that Scott McGillivray from "Income Property" was quite a looker back in the day! He posted a throwback shirtless picture of himself on Instagram -- and you better believe your jaw will drop.

There's more throwback photos for your viewing pleasure, including one of "Flip or Flop" star Christina El Moussa back when she was an adorable teenager. Check it out in the slideshow above!
