DePue native to appear on HGTV 'House Hunters'

Lee Strubinger
Princeton Bureau Chief

DEPUE — A DePue native is to be featured on television at 9 tonight on HGTV’s “House Hunters.”

Amanda (Miranda) Ivanelli was born and raised in DePue and graduated from St. Bede Academy. From there she moved to Chicago to attend DePaul University.

HGTV helped Amanda and her husband Carl find a home in Hinsdale, a Chicago suburb.
Amanda said she received a referral from a friend to apply for the show.

“We sent in a picture of our family and what kind of home we were looking for,” she said. “Pie Town productions out of Los Angeles called me that day.”

The following month they began filming for the show, and that lasted five days.

“They filmed us at restaurants and taking out kids to the zoo,” she said. “It was so natural and I loved our film crew.

“Overall the experience was so fun.”

The show will air the following day and twice in June, she said.
