HGTV announced that it is bringing the iconic doll's dreamhouse to life in the new competition series "Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge." Hosted by model Ashley Graham, eight teams filled with famous faces will work to transform a Southern California home into a real-life doll house.

Alison Victoria, Ty Pennington, James Bender, Christina Hall, Evan Thomas, Keith Bynum, Mike Jackson and Egypt Sherrod will also be a part of the event.
