About the Show

Who hasn’t wanted to change something about themselves? In Extreme Makeover lucky participants are given the chance to go from an ugly duckling to beautiful swan. Each participant is given a truly Cinderella-like experience, as they are able to change their looks through the skills of an ‘Extreme Team,’ including a plastic surgeon, a cosmetic dentist and a talented team of hair and makeup artists. Each episode features two people, first in their ‘before’ phase, then as they undergo their various procedures, and finally, when the results are revealed to their friends and family.

Hi my name is karlene and I'm a mother of 6 children, I really need your help as I don't know where else to turn. I was a very proud and confident women and even the very idea of me writing this publicly for all to see would have been very demoralizing, but that was along time ago . When I was 18 I was savagely attack on my foot and face by my pit bull, I needed over 50 stitches and 3 lots of surgery to try to correct my face. My ordeal was the start of my ever growing depression and anxiety. I never leave my house or my bed some days, My weight has went from a size ten to a eighteen in 4 years, I have never visited a dentist in years either and now have teeth crumbling away , I'm in pain everyday yet can't leave my home and face anyone. I would be so extremely grateful if you would even consider me for extreme makeover it would mean so much not just for me but my children - other children and adults make fun of me and tease them about my appearance and make up awful story's as to why I don't leave home, I'd love to be able to go out with my children again and make them proud of me and not ashamed but most of all there happy mammy back

Hello... I need a extreme makeover !!! :( I'm 21 years old only and have been threw lots of things which different people didn't been threw in all their life... I started to work when I were 16 I were in full time education too so no free time at all... When I became 18 I were deputy head housekeeper in brand new hotel. But then sudden everything went bad I lost my job because of misunderstanding my mother lost her job too that time... I was going to agencies to work for few hours a weeks to survive... Then when I settled a bit and thought all bad things went away and I had my son in my hands (I were 19) everything went bad again... My partner emotionally just killed me... Since then I had a massive health problems and I did gain a weight 30 kg on top of my weight and lots more different things which dont want to announce to public... Now I been trying everything to get back on track but I dont have a push up point... If someone could just point me in right direction I would be very pleased I just dont know where else to go but I know I have to be strong as Im only one there for my son :( I would do anything to be the best mum for him so if you can help - please :(

I need extreme makeover really bad. My sister wants me to be in her wedding and I don't want to say no. I have lost over 135 lbs since last January. My upper arms flap so bad that I am embarrassed. I need a tummy tuck to remove all the loose skin. I need a face lift and my neck done. Since I am losing the weight I have excess skin all over. The worst part is I don't have the monies necessary to pay for a plastic surgeon. I love the comments people say when they see me due to my weight loss; however, when I apply makeup my skin is so wrinkled that I am ashamed. Please consider me for an extreme makeover. I have been married for 35 years and I would love to look like a princess just for him. Thank you for listening to my dilemma.
