    Sissy Biggers to host return of "Extreme Makeovers"

    SISSY BIGGERS TO HOST NEW EPISODES OF ABC'S ONE-HOUR SPECIAL, "EXTREME MAKEOVER"

    Sissy Biggers, former host of TV Food Network's "Ready... Set... Cook!," will host future installments of ABC Television Network's "Extreme Makeover." Following the tremendous success of the one-hour special, "Extreme Makeover," which originally aired on ABC on Wednesday, December 11, and was rebroadcast with new footage on Wednesday, December 18, ABC will air seven additional one-hour episodes which will premiere on THURSDAY, APRIL 3 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET).

    Aside from hosting TV Food Network's "Ready... Set... Cook!," Biggers was a regular on NBC's "Later Today Show," where she also substituted as a co-anchor. Biggers continued on to the "Today Show" as a food and lifestyle contributor, and also regularly showcased her brand of personality-driven information in off-beat food and lifestyle segments for the "Rosie O'Donnell Show" and CBS' "Early Show."

    Unlike the original special, which took three individuals - Stacey, Stephanie and Luke - chosen from thousands of applicants across the country, each new episode of "Extreme Makeover" will have only two candidates. These candidates' looks will be changed completely in an effort to transform their lives and destinies, and to make their dreams come true. This will all be accomplished through the skills of a group of doctors, a plastic surgeon, an eye surgeon and a cosmetic dentist, along with a talented team of hair and makeup artists, stylists and personal trainers. In the future episodes, surgeons from both the East and West Coast will perform the procedures.

    "Extreme Makeover" attracted an average of 13.2 million viewers when it aired on the ABC Television Network on December 11. The show won its hour among Adults 18-49, beating NBC's "West Wing" by 14% (5.8/14 vs. 5.1/12). In addition the show led its hour among Adults 18-34 (4.9/14) and in each of the key Women demos: Women 18-49 (7.4/18), Women 18-34 (6.4/18) and Women 25-54 (7.5/16).

    "Extreme Makeover" is produced by Lighthearted Entertainment. Howard Schultz and Kimber Rickabaugh are executive producers, and Jacqui Pitman is co-executive producer. "Extreme Makeover" is directed by Paul Miller.

    When I saw the name, I thought we were talking about the former "Bachelorettes in Alaska" contestant.

    The show sounds gross.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    I used to watch her on Ready, Set, Cook. I remember reading her bio years ago on foodtv.com and I was actually pretty impressed.

    The show sounds scary as hell, though. What do you want to bet there will be Botox viewing parties all over L.A..
    Iím haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    Used to watch Ready Set Cook too. She was a good host, don' like the english black guy on there now. It shows at like 4 am on saturday nights.

    Anyways, this show sounds wierd. You can make someone over, but unless you change their WHOLE wardrobe and INCOME, its still the same person with one or two changes of clothing.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!" -- Steve Parker
