CLEVELAND, Ohio — NewsChannel 5 and ABC need your help! Do you know someone whose home deserves an Extreme Makeover? If so, the producers of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition want to hear from you. Host Ty Pennington and his crew have been all across the map and are ready to drive that bus into a northeast Ohio neighborhood. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition airs on WEWS NewsChannel 5 each Sunday at 8 p.m.
What does it take to be picked for an Extreme Makeover?
The show producers are in search of real heroes – people that have amazing strength and who have put their own needs aside to help someone else. In addition to heroics, the producers are looking for families whose homes are in dire need of help. They don’t want to tear down a nice looking house – they want to see houses that look like they might fall down on their own!
To be eligible
A family must own their own single family home and be able to show producers how a makeover will make a huge difference in their lives.
