'Extreme Makeover' looking for S.A. families
By Jeanne Jakle on Jul 22, 09 01:11 PM Attention, San Antonio fans of ABC's hit series, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition!"
Charming design team leader Ty Pennington and his crew want to drive their famous bus to Texas — and one city they have their eye on is San Antonio.
According to KSAT, the show is looking for a deserving S.A. family whose home desperately needs a makeover and would make a great story on TV.
They'd especially like to find someone who helps lots of people in the community, but also needs help themselves.
Nominations must be submitted by Aug. 7 to [email protected]
A press release shared by KSAT lists what it takes to be chosen for "Extreme Makeover." "We're looking for those special people who have amazing strength of character and never give up. Whether it's keeping their chin up in really tough circumstances or going out of their way to help others," casting supervisor Morgan Fahey explained. "We want to help people whose stories have really affected their community or made a big difference in other people's lives."
It's also important that the family's house needs a major rebuild. "We really want to help families whose homes present major problems for the family, those big issues that affect the family's quality of life on a daily basis. We want to find deserving people who just don't have the resources, ability, or time to fix those serious issues without our help," Fahey added.
To be eligible, a family must own a single family home and be able to show producers how a makeover will make a huge difference in their lives.
Nominations may be submitted by the family or by a member of their community. Each nomination must include names and ages of every member of the household and a description of challenges within the home.
Be sure to explain why the family is a great role model for their community. If possible, include a recent photo of the subjects. All nominations must include a contact phone number.
