HomeVestors, the company that advertises as "We Buy Ugly Houses," is in search of the ugliest house in St. Louis. The winner will receive $450 in gift certificates to Home Depot and Carpet For Less to fix up their eyesore. But, hey, shouldn't the winner wear the title as a badge of honor?

Here's the catch, though. Not all houses are eligible. That's right; you can't take a photo of your neighbor's hovel and collect.

You need to be the homeowner (even better if you're a real-estate investor/speculator like the good folks at HomeVestors), and you can't be the person who made the house such a nightmare. More rules and information can be found at theugliesthouse.com.

Voting on St. Louis' ugliest home begins June 1. Good luck.
