Sussex County families await announcement of home makeover reality show

    Families from Sussex County, Del., are waiting to find out which one of them has been chosen for ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition reality show.

    Until the decision is made Friday, the families and home builders tapped to help them are supposed to keep hush-hush.

    Chris Schell of Schell Brothers told the Wilmington News Journal not even the company knows for certain which family will be chosen, but the families who become too talkative about their nominations could end up hurting their own chances for a new home.

    The rebuild will be featured on the show’s Thanksgiving special.
