How the Winner is chosen All the entries are categorized into bins. All of the mail in entries go into in physical bins, and the online entries are categorized into online bins. Each bin has a number, they put the numbers on ping pong balls and put the balls into a huge hopper. If the ball is for a physical bin, they dump out all the mail onto the floor and blindfold someone to pick an one of the entries that was dumped out. If the ball was from a virtual bin they choose the bin and the names go across the computer screen too fast for the eye to see. Once the president of HGTV clicks the spacebar and the winners name will pop up.
