Experience the most unbelievable transformations from the incredible first season of the TV series that builds hope and changes lives, then go behind the makeovers with exclusive bonus features.
Bonus features for EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION include: “Construction of Extreme Makeover Home Edition” - a behind-the-scenes featurette where fans can learn how this amazing show makes it to television every week; hilarious bloopers and outtakes; “Rest and Relaxation” witness the hijinks and crazy antics with the cast on the set; and “Preston and Paul,” a fun montage of banter between two on-set designers.
Put together one very run-down house, a deserving family, several opinionated designers, seven days and what do you get? The answer is Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
The show’s wildly successful first season garnered an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality Program.
Each episode features a race against time on a project that would ordinarily take at least four months to achieve, involving a team of designers, contractors and several hundred workers who have just seven days to totally rebuild an entire house every single room, plus the exterior and landscaping.
The lives of the lucky families are forever changed when they learn that they have been selected to have their home walls moved, floors replaced and even the facades radically changed. The result should be a decorator’s delight... if it can be done on time!
Each episode begins with home improvement team leader Ty Pennington’s now famous “good morning!” wake-up call, when he, along with the other designers, surprises the unsuspecting family with news that their home has been chosen to receive a makeover.
Then viewers witness not only the unbelievable transformation of the house, but during the final and emotional reveal, they see how the home makeover has impacted the lives of the deserving families.
The design team who work their creative magic on the home are team leader Ty Pennington, Paul DiMeo, (carpentry/nuts & bolts), Paige Hemmis (carpentry/creativity), Tracy Hutson (shopping/style), Michael Moloney (interiors/glamour), Constance Ramos (building/planning), and Preston Sharp (exteriors/big ideas).
EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION is available for $29.99 (SRP) on a 2-disc DVD from Buena Vista Home Entertainment.
