33 yo John Gidding is more than just another pretty face (and bulging jeans) on HGTV's "Designed to Sell," "Curb Appeal," and "Curb Appeal: The Block." The Ivy League educated Gidding holds a BA in architecture from Yale and a Masters in architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. The well-traveled Gidding was born in Istanbul to a Turkish mother and American father and was schooled in Switzerland. He owns his own design firm based in NYC. An obvious multi-tasker, while in grad school Gidding signed with Wilhelmina Models and did runway fashion shows for both Guicci and Armani--beauty and brains. The last pic is NYC model Chris Lok, who is reportedly Gidding's significant other.
