Extreme Makeover

Extreme Makeover

"Extreme Makeover" was a television program from ABC in which individuals volunteer to receive an extensive makeover in Hollywood. It began airing in 2002 on Thursday nights at 8pm. A total of 55 episodes were produced.

Borrowing heavily from the reality television genre, the show depicts ordinary men and women undergoing "extreme makeovers" involving plastic surgery, exercise regimens, hairdressing and wardrobing. Each episode ends with the subjects' return to their families and friends, showing the reactions of their loved ones, who have not been allowed to see the incremental changes during the subjects' absence.

', which debuted in 2003, is a spin-off of "Extreme Makeover". The home edition eventually became more successful than the plastic surgery edition. ' was also piloted as a one-time special, but did not achieve sufficient ratings to be made into a series.

The show is airing its final episodes after having not been on the main primetime schedule in some time. New episodes have aired sporadically generally during off-peak periods. It was once scheduled to return to the ABC lineup on Thursday, August 3, 2006, but repeats of "Grey's Anatomy" instead filled the hour. The show returned to the air on Friday, October 20, 2006, but due to low ratings ABC announced that "Grey's Anatomy" reruns would fill the time slot starting November 3, 2006.

On May 15, 2007 "Extreme Makeover" was officially cancelled by ABC. The show's final three episodes were burned off on Mondays starting July 2, 2007. [http://www.zap2it.com/tv/news/zap-abcpremieredates-setforlifemastersofscifi,0,1525267.story?coll=zap-tv-headlines]

Deleese Williams

On September 9, 2005, the producers of the show were sued by Deleese Williams, a 30-year-old woman from Conroe, Texas, whose sister Kellie McGee killed herself after Williams was dropped as a contestant. Williams was promised a "Cinderella-like makeover" by the producers of "Extreme Makeover". As part of the show's filming process, Deleese's family disparaged her appearance on camera. The night before her scheduled dental surgery, she was dropped from the show because the recovery would take too long to fit in the show's timeframe. Four months later, her sister Kellie McGee committed suicide due, Williams claims, to the guilt McGee felt over her on-tape comments about her sister's appearance. Williams is suing the producers of "Extreme Makeover" for breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress, among other allegations. Williams's main argument, presented to the court, was that the producers of "Extreme Makeover" required McGee to say things about her sisters appearance that were both false and cruel. After a year of legal battle, both sides reached a settlement for an undisclosed amount.
