Melanie Amaro plans to spend ‘X Factor’ winnings on a new house

She wants to buy her mom a new house

Fresh off her $5 million dollar ‘X Factor’ win, Melanie Amaro already has plans for her new found wealth and it includes a new home for her mom, a foot massage and all the chicken she can eat.

Amaro spoke to US Magazine about her plans for the $5 million and admits that her life is going to drastically change.  She said;

“[The money] will change a lot that is for sure. I mean, the most I’ve ever had is like $200 in my account if I was lucky.”

Melanie went on to say that she plans to buy her mother a brand new home, saying;

I think I’m going to buy [my parents] a new house because the one we live in right now sucks [and] a good foot massage! These heels are killing me. For me to have won was big. I feel blessed and I feel happy. I have worked so hard to get here and I truly deserve this.”
