Extreme Makeover: Home Edition - Tye Pennington

Think way beyond MDF radiator covers and sequin scatter cushions. With a whopping one million dollar budget per project, we're talking total renovation - right back to the drawing board and a radical redesign which may feature a swimming pool, barn with livestock or even a basketball court in your garage.

But it's the stories behind the makeovers that will be tugging at your heartstrings. Prepare for an emotional battering as we meet everyday Americans living exceptionally dramatic lives.

This is 100% American cheese and you're going to love it. There's whooping and cheering, high fiving and hugging, and that's before any work has started. And what makes this show even more watchable is that the team is total eye candy.

Presenter Ty Pennington's jock good looks and improbable abs make it more Baywatch than Changing Rooms. And Paige Hemmis is definitely the most curvaceous carpenter you're likely to see.

With a crew of fifty tradesmen and a schedule of just seven days, it's not surprising that frowns sometimes furrow the foreheads of our glamorous team. It's a veritable soap opera of emotions.

And picture the scene when the families return from their week-long holiday to their brand new home. The screams reach fever pitch - a word of warning, keep a finger on your remote's volume control! It's big bucks, big hearts and even bigger hair in this, the ultimate American home makeover show, presented by larger-than-life designer Ty Pennington.
