Base on the popular show Extreme Makeover, Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition follows professional trainer Chris Powell as he guides a group of participants on a one-year long journey to lose weight and transform their bodies.

The show will follow eight overweight people as they work to lose weight, change their lives and get healthier. The group of eight is made up of four guys and four girls ranging in age from 21 to 44. The lightest member of the group is 21-year-old Rachel who is a first grade teacher and former homecoming queen. She weighs 369 pounds and is trying to get her life back. The heaviest person on the show is James a 26-year-old former football player who now weighs 651 pounds.

You might think of Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition as a cross between Biggest Loser and Intervention. Trainer Chris Powell actually moves in with each of the people participating in the show. He teaches them how to fundamentally change their lives so that they can lean about nutrition and better eating habits as well as exercise. He also shows them how to make changes to their lives so that they can better avoid the bad choices that led them to becoming overweight in the first place.

The show is scheduled to air eight one-hour episodes. Each episode will focus on one person and follow them during their one-year long life changing transformation.

Tune in tonight at 10PM on ABC to check out Extreme Makeover Home Edition and follow these people on their journey
