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.

I've seen these makeovers and dreamed of having one but never had the guts to apply. I never wanted people to see just how I've let myself go. But I'm past being embarrassed now, i know that i actually need some help with bringing me back to the future. Ive had a rough trot with a lot of things but always got through it. Worked hard, nursed family with cancer, had my left lung removed form a tumour,but always stayed positive, but when it comes to myself, well thats a different matter. My certain fears and almost phobia i suppose you'd call it has stopped me from living the life i should and held me back something awful. I just want to look at my beautiful daughter and show her that dreams do come true if u wish hard enough.

I am 37 years old and am very lucky - I have an amazing husband, 3 beautiful children and a fabulous job, but feel terrible about myself. I hate looking in the mirror in the morning and avoid photos at all cost. I have never felt great about myself, but 3 ceasareans, a stroke, open heart surgery and having two teeth knocked out years ago (which I wear a partial denture to replace) I am feeling worse than ever! I would love to win an extreme makeover so I can feel as happy on the outside as I do on the inside. Please choose me!!!

My husband recently told me he no longer loved me and asked me to leave our home.
I took my 3 daughters, our clothes and am trying to make a new life for us.
My confidence was shattered.
I have had 3 C sections and the aftermath is not pretty. Although my three beautiful girls are.
This makeover would not solve all of my problems but I think it would boost my confidence so that I can attack single parenthood with the grace and dignity that both my children and I deserve.

Are you planing on doing a series in 2016? If so how do you apply?

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
