Extreme Makeover: Home Edition - In Blaine?
There was already an "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" that took place in St. Paul. Now the producers of the ABC reality TV show have focused their sights on homes in Blaine. The countdown clock is ticking! The show’s deadline to receive family nominations is next Friday, April 9, 2010.
To be eligible, a family must own their own single-family home and be able to show producers how a makeover will make a huge difference in their lives.
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” provides home renovations for deserving families. Each episode features a race against time to complete a housing project that would ordinarily take at least four months. The effort involves a team of designers, contractors and several hundred workers. The residential property will be entirely rebuilt in 7 days.
What does it take to be picked for an “Extreme Makeover?”
“We really want to help families whose homes present major problems,” said Rebecca Shumsky, the show’s casting supervisor, in a recent news release.
“We want to help people whose stories have really affected their community or made a big difference,” Shumsky said. “We’re looking for special people who have amazing strength of character and never give up.”
Nominations may be submitted by the family or by a member of the community.
