"Episode 306" - Since its premiere as a one-hour special in December 2002, "Extreme Makeover" has become a pop culture phenomenon-to the extent that the very title is now common vernacular. "Extreme Makeover" has unveiled some of the most jaw-dropping transformations of people, dramatically and forever changing their lives and looks through plastic surgery. "Extreme Makeover" airs THURSDAY, MARCH 10 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 11/4/04)
Ethan and his wife, Geri, were married six years ago when they secretly eloped to Las Vegas. Geri's children from her previous marriage -- Denae (20) Amber (18) and Josh (15) -- never got to see the wedding. Now this Clovis, California clan is treated to the first-ever, full-family "Extreme Makeover" in the show's history! The family was given a life-changing experience, as they were able to change their looks in an effort to transform their lives and destinies and to make their dreams come true.
Stylist Sam Saboura surprises the family with some "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" touches-like a bullhorn, and with the whole neighborhood watching the fun. He then whisks Ethan and Geri off to Los Angeles for the first-ever husband and wife makeover in the show's history. The spouses get to help Dr. Garth Fisher redesign each other. Then the kids get their own whirlwind visit to Los Angeles for mini-makeovers by Sam. His fast and furious wardrobe/hair/makeup overhaul includes his tricks and tips in the fields of fashion, personal style and grooming with "news you can use" to give yourself a whole new look without any plastic surgery. The kids learn how to look like a million on a teenager's budget.
The exciting transformation is truly complete when the entire family is revealed to one another with their new looks in an emotional and captivating reunion not to be missed.
