QUICK TAKE

CELEBRITY CHEFS ROCCO DISPIRITO, SANDRA LEE AND ART SMITH PUT DOWN THEIR KNIVES AND PUT ON THEIR HARD HATS FOR "EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION"

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" traveled to Champaign County, IL to meet Nathan Montgomery, who gave up a lucrative engineering career to start a charity that feeds ten thousand hungry families in his community. The incredible generosity of the Montgomery family has taken a heavy toll on the family's living conditions. With two modest incomes, they're unable to afford much-needed repairs to their rundown, 100-year-old home. But the Montgomery family is in for the surprise of a lifetime! Celebrity chefs Rocco DiSpirito, Sandra Lee and Art Smith "Get on the Bus" and join forces with "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" to build this deserving family a new home and, more importantly, a wonderful, new kitchen that will enable their vital community service to continue. "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition � Montgomery Family" airs SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Rocco DiSpirito was named Food & Wine's Best New Chef in 1999, and the following year Gourmet magazine called him "America's Most Exciting Young Chef." DiSpirito opened Rocco's 22nd Street in the summer of 2003 while cameras rolled for "The Restaurant." In addition to his five cook books, including the most recent, Rocco Gets Real: Cook at Home Every Day, his new television show, "Rocco Gets Real," currently airs on A&E; Sandra Lee is editor-in-chief of Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Magazine, the host of the multi-Emmy-nominated "Semi-Homemade Cooking" and "Sandra's Money Saving Meals," and is the author of seventeen New York Times bestselling books; and Art Smith has cooked for families, politicians and celebrities around the world. For 10 years Art was the personal chef to Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham, and he currently acts as the specialty chef for Ms. Winfrey's most talked about events. In 2007 he launched the fine dining restaurant Table, which serves handmade, organic foods gathered from some of the best farms in the Midwest. In addition to his highly acclaimed cook books, Art is a contributing editor to O Magazine and Oprah.com.
