Tonight, a new show will debut on ABC called “Extreme Makeover: Weight-Loss Edition.” The premise? To inspire Wally, a 26-year-old husband and father, to lose 110 pounds from his 490-pound frame over the course of three months. The prize? A family trip to the Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate his daughter’s second birthday.

To get him there, trainer Chris Powell will put this fast-food addict through intense workout regimens including a climb to the top of the Sears Tower in Chicago and a 100-mile bike ride.

Can he do it? Tune in to ABC, Monday at 10 p.m.

In the meantime, here’s a preview.


  • SO adorable. I plan to take my son to Disneyland on his second birthday. I can’t wait. 🙂

  • If he needs an “extreme workout”, why not just give him the trip NOW, and let him walk around Epcot World Showcase, and DCA to Carsland and back, twice? 😉

    • Good advice! A lap through World Showcase is a great way to burn calories (as long as it’s not time for the International Food & Wine Festival!).

  • I love this show. It is great to see the transformation at the end of an hour-long episode.
