Tenn. Retiree 'Shocked' After Winning HGTV Dream Home In Rockies

Knoxville (AP) -- A retired postmaster from Florida and his new Tennessee wife have won a "Dream Home Giveaway."

Sixty-nine-year-old Bob O'Neill of Johnson City won the Rocky Mountains home in cable channel HGTV's $2.5 million giveaway.

He also won a quarter of a million dollars in cash, a doggy dream home, an SUV and the custom-built, fully furnished home in the Rocky Mountains.

The contest had more than 41 million entries. O'Neill said he entered seven to ten times.

He's a retired postmaster from Brandon, Florida. He's been living in Tennessee less than a year and recently remarried after the death of his wife.
