Although Kenny and Theresa attended the same high school, they never met until they began dating four years ago. Their previous marriages ended in divorce, and Theresa's ex-husband has since passed away. Theresa has three children, 18-year-old Brianna, 16-year-old Chelsey and 14-year-old Tucker, while Kenny has two, 18-year-old Ericka and 14-year-old Justin.
This loving family of seven love spending time together, but it's difficult since they still live separately. They split time between Kenny's cramped house and Theresa's even more cramped apartment. Kenny and Theresa want to be married and to finally be united under one roof, but the condition of Kenny's home has made it difficult to be sold. The three-bedroom, one-bathroom home is over a hundred years old and unsafe. Currently the two basement walls are buckling, the refrigerator isn't working and there's a leak in their only bathroom that they cannot afford to fix.
Move over Brady Bunch: the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team is heading to the cornhusker state to fulfill these families' wish to live in a single spacious home and finally unite as one family.
While the EM:HE design team, local builders Hartland Homes, contractors and hundreds of workers and volunteers are building a dream house for them in a remarkable seven days, the family will go on vacation to the Hilton in Paris. In addition, Kenny proposes to Theresa and they walk down the aisle in a romantic wedding ceremony onboard a cruise on the Seine River.
The design team for this episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers John Littlefield, Preston Sharp, Tanya McQueen and Tracy Hutson.
