In addition, in the episode airing Sunday, April 8 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), The Jones family from Mississippi will be receiving a new Ford Edge and an Extreme Garage Makeover.

The �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� design team took on the task of remaking a house in each of the 50 states over the next two seasons.

�This partnership with Ford extends the wish fulfillment aspect of �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� to an even greater level,� said Michael Benson, executive vice president, Marketing, ABC Entertainment. �Awarding fifty deserving viewers with a new Edge demonstrates the quality and commitment of Ford and captures the spirit of the show.�

�Ford is continually inspired by the emotional connection that this show has with its viewers,� said Ed Molchany, Ford Brand communications manager. �They not only remake homes, they remake lives. Since our Edge owners appreciate strong design, style and technology, it is the perfect brand to highlight on �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.��

In addition to giving away the 50 crossover vehicles from Ford, one lucky winner will be named the grand prize winner and will receive an �Extreme Garage Makeover,� courtesy of Ford.

�Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� design team members Paige Hemmis and Eduardo Xol will also be featured in the ads promoting �Edge Across America.� The ad campaign will show a series of Ford Edges driving through a garage while Paige and Eduardo check off the many destinations that the cars are going to across the country.
