The list of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition special guest stars keeps getting longer! Just last week, we announced Anthony Anderson would be lending a helping hand. And today, we’re excited to share that Laila Ali, a four-time undefeated world champion boxer, lifestyle expert, cooking enthusiast, two-time author and mom of two, is officially going extreme.

“I am beyond excited to join the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team and am ready to bring my home renovation experience and passion for interior design to this supersized project,” said Ali. “There’s nothing better than dishing out a big win for a deserving family.”

Outside of the ring, Ali is a familiar face on two of HGTV’s sister nets—OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network and Food Network. She is the host of OWN’s Daytime Emmy®-winning television series Home Made Simple with Laila Ali, which features fresh design ideas, delicious recipes featuring Ali's signature style of cooking flavorful food with a healthier twist and money and space-saving solutions for deserving homeowners looking to tackle everyday home challenges and design dilemmas. She also is known as a culinary champ who has appeared on Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay and Chopped All Stars, judged Chopped Junior and won Chopped twice. Ali has written a critically acclaimed recipe book titled, Food for Life: Delicious & Healthy Comfort Food From My Table to Yours! which she dedicated to the memory of her late, iconic, global humanitarian father, Muhammad Ali. She has stirred up recent buzz with the release of the first installment of a Non-GMO/organic condiment collection she created, Laila Ali Spice Blends®.

Ali is an incredible addition to the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition family and we can’t wait to see her in action!
