Every neighborhood has one — that local hero who makes life a little easier for everyone around him or her. Now is America's chance to celebrate neighborhood heroes in a BIG way. Each week, HGTV's cousins, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, give one hero the surprise of a lifetime. First, we send him or her away for a weekend. Once they are gone, the cousins descend on the neighborhood with huge trucks and hulking teams of renovators to tackle a home overhaul customized exactly to the hero. Finally, the cousins and the neighborhood band together to reveal our hero's house, transformed inside and out. (Source:

The young Wendl family leaves their small, close-knit town in Iowa for a fun trip to L.A. that includes watching a live taping of ELLEN. But when Ellen and her special guests, the Cousins, pull them out of the studio audience and onstage, things start to sink in... Anthony and John have already begun an undercover overhaul of their home and recruited the entire town to help. The Wendl's house is seventy years old and while it's filled with flourishes of their personal, vintage style, it's needs a lot of work. Sam Wendl's military service overseas prevented him from having the chance to repair what the house sorely needs much less to create the home in their image. Friends, family and all the whole town pitch in to completely rebuild the exterior, remake entire first floor and give them a backyard to perfectly fit their lifestyle.
