Sangita Patel’s love for math and science originally led her to earn a Professional Engineering Designation, before turning to her true passion, television. Now she is one of the most engaging media personalities in Canada as a reporter for one of TV’s top entertainment shows, ET Canada, and the host of HGTV Canada’s high-stakes show, Home to Win.
Last year, Sangita was unveiled as the new Canadian spokesperson for Covergirl’s Simply Ageless Collection, and was also named as one of HELLO! Canada magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People”.
We stepped into her world to ask three quick questions about her work with ET Canada, and to learn a bit more about Sangita herself.
1. Who was your favourite person to interview on ET Canada?
There’s been so many, but the ones that surprised me were: Tom Cruise, my last interview with him was in Paris overlooking the Eiffel Tower; George Clooney, who pulled out his phone to show me his twins; and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson — we’re friends!
But then there are the actors/artists who share their vulnerable side, which always gets me. To have the opportunity to tell their stories is why I love doing my job.
2. What are you most proud of in your career so far?
I was told that I am too ambitious all my life. I’ve always been this person who says, “Why not! Try it out, you never know.” So, I’m most proud of all the opportunities that have come my way as a result of my hard work.
3. What’s been your favourite experience as host of HGTV’s Home to Win?
This show means so much to me. On the last day, we actually get to give a house away to a family and you know their lives are going to change. Getting to announce the winner is one of the highlights of my career.
Whether hosting on-stage, sharing her personal story, or acting as a brand spokesperson, Sangita Patel infuses everything she does with passion and professionalism.
