David Bromstad Ethnicity, Nationality, Family
Born to a Swedish–German mother, and Norwegian dad, David Bromstad flaunts a mixed ethnicity. So yeah, for those of you confused: No, David is neither Asian nor Hawian.
As for his nationality, David hails from Cokato, MN. That makes him an American. In 2020, he moved to Orlando because all of his best friends were living there. Before that, he resided in Miami Beach.
Talking about his family, David is the youngest of four children born to parents, Diane Marlys Krueger and Richard Harold Bromstad. He has an older brother named Dean Richard Bromstad and two older sisters named Dynelle Renee Bromstad and Dyonne Rachael Bromstad.
Overall, David was very close to his family. In a 2012 interview, he shared,
“My family, they are just my best friends. I lean on them every single day of my life. They are so supportive of everything I do. They love me no matter what.”
Trivia: David had two dogs named Godiva Bonbon and Dozer Bubbas.
David Bromstad Tattoos, Weight Loss, Neck Surgery
David Bromstad is a tattoo fanatic. His body was a canvas for a wide variety of tattoos — some of them being more vivid, and some having a certain theme that represented a certain time in his life.
However, his fans have had enough of his tattoos; especially the tattoos around his neck. Many even took it to their Twitter asking David to stop tattooing further. A few even insisted David consider neck surgery and remove those “tigers”.
The 6 feet 1 inch (185 cm) tall, David lost over 13 kg (30 lbs) in late 2018. Though he wasn’t much heavy, to begin with, his weight loss certainly added more charm to his persona.
Is He On Social Media?
Yes, David flaunted 217K followers over Instagram, 470.K followers over Twitter, and 383K followers over Facebook.
David Bromstad Salary, Net Worth, Career
During his time on My Lottery Dream Home, David Bromstad reportedly received a salary of $500 thousand per season as its host. However, it was never confirmed. As of 2021, his net worth was $2 million.
David Bromstad began his career as a design student at Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. He then almost immediately joined HGTV in 2006 and has been working with the channel ever since. But it wasn’t until 2012 when he won the Design Star, David rose to the limelight. After that, he started working as the host to multiple HGTV hits.
In 2021, he was featured on HGTV House Party, and Rock the Block.
David Bromstad Partner, Husband, Jeffrey Glasko
David Bromstad first met his partner (now ex) named Jeffrey Glasko, back on Valentine’s day, 2004. According to him, their relationship began after he and Jeffrey met at a “Single’s Party” which was held at a club in Firestone, Florida. Also, he added that they stumbled upon each other several times before, but never get a chance to talk.
After secretly dating Jeffrey for over 8 years, David then finally revealed the world about his sexuality. In an interview with South Florida Gay News, David confessed that he was gay, and shared Jeffrey Glasko to be his partner.
Unfortunately, the two broke up in 2015, after Jeffrey accused David of infidelity and the split was even dragged to court. In December 2015, Jeffrey filed a lawsuit against David for breach of an “oral nuptial-like cohabitation contract and partition of the condo” they shared. He alleged that David used shared funds to pay for ”illicit drugs and prostitutes resulting in a loss of trust and confidence.”
The judge’s end verdict was in favor of David and stated that “these salacious claims were made by a desperate person.”
After breaking up with his partner of over-a-decade, and losing a potential husband, David maintained a lowkey dating status.
Little info about Jeffrey Glasko: He is over 7 years older than David, and still worked for David (as a project manager at David Bromstad LLC) after their split. Before working for David, he was a police officer for almost 6 years, and also a special federal officer for over 5 years.
For education, Jeffrey attended Roger Williams University from 1988 to 1990 and Old Dominion University from 1985 to 1987, to study Criminal Justice. He was affiliated with the Florida Democratic Party then and had a net worth of $151 thousand in 2020.
