Yes, it’s officially correct! Ty Pennington will not be a part of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition as the host anymore. Here’s why.
Ty has been the host of this iconic show right from when it started in 2003 to 2012. This news shocked all the fans immensely. The reaction was pronounced because he has, in a way, become the face of the show.
The new host of the show will be Jesse Tylor Ferguson, who is known for his role in HGTV’s Modern Family. The show will have ten episodes.
Why is Ty not hosting Extreme Makeover: Home Edition?
As per reports, the channel is making some changes in the show’s creative front. With Jesse joining the show, they are expecting the show to gain a new creative perspective. So, Ty Pennington will no longer be hosting the show.
Though Jesse is also an appreciated personality, some people feel that the show has lost its charm and might never be the same again without Ty Pennington.
What Ty has to say about him quitting the show?
In his statements related to this topic, Ty has humorously stated that he can’t just take away all the good vibes for himself and that he should let someone else have them too. He also said that he is now too old for that.
No, Ty! You were just the perfect host for all the fans!
