About the Show

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, im almost 22 years old. for years ive always tried and failed to get a new style and to feel comfortable in my body and be confident. when i was 13 i started to only wear black which started after my mum died from cancer. for my whole adolescence my dad always wanted me to be proud and confident in what i look like and after having my baby girl in august my confidence level has dropped tremendously. now i only dress in leggings and jeans if i have to go out. none of my clothes fit me and i hate the thought of going shopping because as soon as i look in the mirror all i see is fat and ugly even though im only 75 kilos now which is 15 kilos ore then i was before pregnancy. as a mother now i want my daughter and my partner to be proud to say im her mum when shes older and for my partner to be proud to say im his. i want to feel confident enough to feel comfortable being intimate with my partner and not feel ashamed. thankyou

No sob story here, just a 59 year old single woman whose children are out of the house and who wants to do something for all me now. You know how it is. As a single parent everything you do, everything you buy and every decision you make is for your children. It's my turn now! I think I deserve something for just me now! LOL!!!

I would like to add to my post below ...

The house was half way through a renovation when the fire struck … so therefore the insurance company only did it to what stage it was at which was understandable … unfortunately the contents was greatly underinsured and that was split between my ex and I due to the breakup … the money I did receive I lent to a friend and I need not say anymore on that … being unemployed I have not had the funds to complete the house further and I live a pretty minimalistic life … second hand basics. The stress of it all has been pretty intense and very depressing … some lose weight … Me … I gained weight … my friends diminished due to my abusive relationship and I have no family so I am pretty much very alone … I haven’t seen a hairdresser since August 10th 2010 …so .. as I said … an Extreme Makeover would be greatly appreciated. As I said ... I desperately want to smile .. the infection has caused my teeth to blacken and break and am soon to lose teeth that have worked loose.

Once again … Thank you for your consideration

Hi there ...

I am 52 yrs old.
I normally don't ask for much .. but would be grateful if you would consider me for an Extreme Makeover. I have spent many years caring for elderly parents and my ex's father ... survived a loveless relationship for 9 yrs ... volunteered for 6 mths to help the flood victims of the 2001 floods, survived a house fire in which I lost everything ... and more. I would love to smile again ... but due to a gum infection etc ... and lack of finances my smile is always held between sealed lips. An Extreme Makeover would give me the confidence to take the world by the horns and hopefully find love.

Thanking you for your time and hopeful consideration ...

I am 61 years old . Am 5 feet tall and weigh 45 kilos. I have very fine hair and have tried just about every product for my hair. As for a style no hairdresser seems to know what to do with it. I feel my hair makes me feel not confident as it should be a frame for the face. Clothes I would love to know what suits me for my age and height as I don't look my age but do not want to dress to young . Thanking you . MM

Hey guys, not sure if you have found your lucky participants, but if you are still looking or theres' room for a wildcard entry id really like to be considered. I have a very interesting and compelling life story, and I have the motivation and determination to change how I look on the outside because I am finally beautiful on the inside. J
