Jesse Tyler Ferguson Reveals How He's Making the 'Extreme Makeover' Reboot His Own

Jesse Tyler Ferguson is the host of the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition reboot and he’s opening up about how he’s making the show a bit different.

The 44-year-old Emmy-nominated actor attended the series premiere and screening party on Sunday (February 16) in Torrance, Calif.

“The producers came to me because they wanted someone totally different from Ty [Pennington], and they wanted someone who could bring humor as well as a human connection. It’s a tricky balance because you’re part Oprah Winfrey, part Bob the Builder,” Jesse told Parade about how he’s making the show his own.

Jesse added, “I loved the original. What they were looking for with this reboot was something different. Ty Pennington is a very hard person to replace. He was synonymous with that first edition; he was the heartbeat of that show. You have to go in a totally different way when you’re redoing something like that.”
