HGTV stars are just like us! And being normal humans (who just happen to be rich and famous), they probably have some photos from their past they’d rather forget.

Just like they transform houses from drab to fab, so too did these HGTV stars transform themselves from regular Joe Schmos to superstars.
Thanks to the fabulous world of Instagram, we can now take a look back at all of our favorite HGTV personalities before they made it big. Thankfully, they didn’t let the trends of the ’80s and ’90s stop them from sharing their adolescent moments in all their glory.
