Tonight's special two-hour episode of Extreme Makeover™ the television series features an exonerated former death row inmate, a mother and daughter makeover, and the real life Wisteria Lane.


When Ray Krone of Dover, PA was 37, he was wrongfully accused, convicted, and sentenced to death for a murder he did not commit. Ray had crooked teeth and they matched bite marks that were found on the victim's body. His record was totally clean, and never had a record. But one night, the night manager of the bar Ray frequented was found dead in the bathroom. She had been stabbed to death and bite marks were found all over her body. During the trial, it was discovered that the night manager had a thing for Ray. And an expert witness determined that the bite marks matched that of Ray's teeth. Ray's jagged smile condemned him, being called the "snaggletooth killer." He was sentenced to death. Ray's attorney did not give up hope. DNA evidence proved that Ray was not the killer. After 10 years in prison, Ray Krone was a free man. However, the years in prison had taken its toll on Ray, physically and mentally. Now he wants to get an extreme makeover to take away that snaggletooth face of a killer.

Ray makes appearances across the country telling his story. But he still knows that he is being judged. When people see him, they see a criminal. His teeth continue to get worse, his hair line is receding, and his once athletic body is now withered. But even after all of this, Ray has learned how to smile again, and has even started dating again, a former high school classmate. Then one night, Ray's attorney, whom he had not seen since being released from prison, came by Ray's home to give him a surprise. Ray had been selected to be on the Extreme Makeover™ television series.

Ray came to Los Angeles, and after living in a prison cell for 10 years, for the next few weeks, he will be living in the Makeover Mansion. Ray begins his makeover journey by meeting with cosmetic dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman. Dr. Dorfman wants to get rid of the smile that brings back horrible memories for Ray. The doctor really has his work cut out for him.

Next for Ray was a meeting with Dr. Craig Ziering to undergo a hair transplant. In a typical procedure, Dr. Ziering usually places 2,000 to 2.500 hair follicles. For Ray's hair transplant, the doctor used 4.053 hair grafts, a record on Extreme Makeover™ the television series.

After meeting with dermatologists Dr. Ava Shamban and Dr. Patrick Bitter, Ray then met with plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Griffin. Dr. Griffin will help decriminalize Ray's looks. During the consultation Dr. Griffin and Ray talked about various procedures such as straightening Ray's nose, liposuction in the neck and others. Ray's last consultation was with fitness trainer Michael Thurmond, who wants Ray to look better than he did 10 years ago. Ray can never get those 10 years back, but through this experience on the Extreme Makeover™ television series, he can look forward to his future.

During surgery, Dr. Griffin collaborates with Dr. Shamban. Dr. Shamban performs laser resurfacing on Ray's skin and provides him with a smooth complexion. Then Dr. Griffin performs brow lift, removes fat and skin from the eyelids, liposuctions fat from under the chin, corrects Ray's profile with a nose job. Surgery was complete for Dr. Griffin and Dr. Shamban.

Less than a week later, it was time to take off the bandages and both Dr. Griffin and Dr. Shamban were present. Ray's likes his brow and new nose. It was an improved, softer, Ray. One day later, Ray's dermatology team enhances the results of his surgery, which included removing those acne scars and FotoFacial treatment. It will take four to six months to see the final results, but a few treatments give Ray tremendous results.

Dr. Robert Maloney was the next surgeon to help Ray. The doctor told Ray that he has a little stigmatism in each eye. Dr. Maloney will correct just the left eye, and preserve the other for reading. A day after the surgery, Dr. Maloney stops by the mansion to play a game of darts with Ray.

Now came the epicenter of Ray's makeover. Dr. Dorfman will erase the worse part of Ray's life and provide him with a normal smile. The doctor performed 4 extractions, placed 4 permanent dental implants, 17 da Vinci porcelain crowns and veneers, and Zoom tooth whitening.

During his makeover trip to Los Angeles, Ray got a chance to meet one of his heroes, Jesse James, from TV's "Monster Garage." Ray had always been into mechanics always saw riding a motorcycle as freedom. Watching Jesse James carried him through difficult times, watching someone who built these "freedom machines." Now while Jesse James and his team build these vehicles, Michael Thurmond is rebuilding the body that Ray lost in prison.

For the final touches, Extreme Team stylist took Ray to one of the finest men stores in the world to pick out a new suit. Then, Ray's new hair received some color and style, and his beard was shaved off. Now it was time for Ray to go home.

Ray's friends and family couldn't wait to see him. Ray's attorney is there to provide the introductions. This was another homecoming for Ray, showing off his new appearance. Friends and family were cheering for Ray and had a cake waiting because it was also his birthday. This was a new beginning.

Ray's procedures included:

  • Rhinoplasty
  • Brow lift
  • Upper and lower eyelid lift
  • Chin liposuction
  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Acne scar excision
  • Hair transplant and restoration
  • LASIK eye surgery
  • Fotofacial
  • Dental implants
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Zoom tooth whitening

Yvonne and Stephanie:

Yvonne and her daughter Stephanie are the first mother and daughter makeover. The mom wants to look younger, while the daughter wants to look older. Stephanie is 21 years, but looks like 12 year old, and one of the things she would like is bigger breasts. Yvonne is a widow who does not feel attractive and wants to feel confident in her appearance. Both of them do not like the appearance of their nose, would like to get rid of fat from their tummies, and while Stephanie doesn't like the appearance of her teeth, Yvonne has teeth missing. During a trip to the Houston Texans facility, Yvonne and Stephanie were having a tour of the facility and the Texan cheerleaders were there practicing. The cheerleaders then stopped to tell the mother and daughter duo that they have been chosen for an extreme makeover.

The first stop on the mother/daughter makeover is a visit with plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Griffin. This will be the first time Dr. Griffin will be working on a mother and daughter, and it will be a little bit of a challenge. He asks them what they would like to talk about. Yvonne told Dr. Griffin that her nose always bothers her, and that she would also like to have a brow lift and get rid of her double chin. She had also heard that Dr. Griffin was an expert in enhancing buttocks and so, she would like to have a booty. Now it was Stephanie's turn. She would like to have breast augmentation and go from a small A to a small C cup size. Dr. Griffin thought she had realistic expectations. The night before surgery, Stephanie is glad her mom is there.

Stephanie is the first to have surgery. To go from teenager to woman, she receives a brow lift, liposuction excess fat from her abs and under chin, breast augmentation, and then nose surgery. The nose had a larger hump than first appeared. But he was able to get it done. Yvonne is there to take care of her daughter.

A few days later, it was time for Yvonne to have surgery. Dr. Griffin turned back the clock on Yvonne's appearance starting with a facelift, then lifted her brow for a brighter look. This was then followed by a lower eyelid lift and cheek lift. Yvonne's tummy was tucked, giving her a nice hourglass shape. Fat was taken from her abdominal area and injected into her buttock region. Then for the nose surgery, Dr. Griffin recast and reset her nose.

At the office of dentist Dennis J. Wells, Stephanie and Yvonne received porcelain veneers, enhancing their smile.

A few days after their surgery, Yvonne and Stephanie get some of their bandages taken off and they just love their new noses. A few days after that, they had their body bandages taken off. Dr. Griffin was surprised by how well Yvonne's tummy tuck and butt lift turned out. Stephanie is very excited about her new set of breasts. She would love to wear lingerie outfits and look sexy for her husband. So she went shopping for some sexy lingerie.

For Yvonne and Stephanie, living under one roof has been a little frustrating for the both of them. Stephanie feels that her mother is babying her and Yvonne thinks her daughter on the phone with her husband all the time. They were starting to get on each other's nerves.

Then, Extreme Team style expert Sam Saboura, came to tell the mother and daughter duo that they will be separated for their final touches and would not see each other until the final reveal. Sam helped Yvonne get younger clothes. For Stephanie, she got the help of actress Lisa Rinna at her clothing boutique in Sherman Oaks, California. Stephanie also met with vogue diva Willie Ninja, who taught her how to strut her stuff. And he knows his stuff, Willie has taught such celebrities as Madonna and Paris Hilton. Stephanie feels confident and more lady-like after meeting Willie.

Then, from hair coloring by Kim Vo to makeup by Darcy Gilmore, the mother-daughter makeover was complete. Stephanie actually screamed when she looked at her reflection in the mirror.

In the past two months, Yvonne and Stephanie were in Los Angeles, receiving their extreme makeover. Now they were back home, and at the Rockwell Center in Houston. Yvonne makes her presentation first. There were cheers and screams from the crowd when she revealed herself. Yvonne's other daughter could not stop staring at her. Yvonne has a whole new look to start a whole new life.

Next was Stephanie's reveal. Her husband could not wait and he too had a surprise for her. He had been working out with a physical trainer and has lost a considerable amount of weight, and gained muscle mass. When Stephanie walked into the room, her husband was crying. And she was excited to see her mom. Now the two are more like sisters, rather than mother and daughter.

For Yvonne's makeover, she received:

  • Rhinoplasty
  • Brow lift
  • Cheek lift
  • Face lift
  • Lower eyelid lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Abdominal liposuction
  • Brazilian butt lift
  • LASIK eye surgery

Stephanie's makeover included the following procedures:
