WEST UNION, Iowa - Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will air its last two episodes ending their ninth and final season. On Friday, January 6th the Extreme Makeover crew went to West Union to surprise the Gibbs Family. Hundreds of volunteers helped build a new home for Audrey Gibbs and her six children. Audrey had to raise her children on her own after the death of her husband. Seven months later Audrey had a brain aneurysm that affected a quarter of her brain – leaving her legally blind.

The Extreme Makeover crew revealed the Gibbs family’s new home in October but, cameras were not allowed inside. But, now you can finally see what the interior looks like and all the hard work volunteers put in. The episode airs January 6th from 7pm to 9 pm on KCRG TV 9.
