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. Each episode of the award-winning unscripted program is a self-contained race against time on a project that would ordinarily take at least four months to achieve, involving one deserving family along with a team of designers, contractors and several hundred workers who have just seven days to totally rebuild an entire house. New this season, a new celebrity joins the design team each week and a musical guest performs to help boost morale among the volunteers.
In the season premiere of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition the team travels to South Range, WI to tell Howard Huber – hero firefighter and his wife Jessica they are going to get a new home! Plus, Emmy Award-winning actress Patricia Heaton joins the design team and music group Five for Fighting performs.
