SEASON PREMIERE

FOR THE FIRST TIME TRAINER CHRIS POWELL WORKS WITH TWINS, WITH A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 868 LBS., ON THE SEASON 3 OPENER OF ABC'S "EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS," TUESDAY, MAY 28

During Their Dramatic One-Year Weight Loss Journey, Transformation Specialist and Trainer Chris Powell Takes the Twins on the Toughest Milestone Challenge Ever

Show Title Has Changed to "Extreme Weight Loss" from "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition"

"David and Rebecca" -- Twins David & Rebecca didn't think that much about their weight as they were growing up in North Prairie, WI. David, who weighs in at 470 pounds, and Rebecca, who weighs 398 pounds, spent their childhood making people laugh. Behind the smiles there were tears of pain from a difficult upbringing that led them to use food as an outlet. After Chris Powell decides to help the twins on their 23rd birthday, he realizes they're extremely co-dependent and enable each other's poor decisions, especially when it comes to their weight. After a tearful goodbye, the twins are split up for a 90-day challenge, with Rebecca going to Arizona to work alongside Chris's wife, Heidi. At the beginning of his weight loss journey, David said he'd always wanted to go through Navy SEAL training to show his dad that "he was a man." Chris takes the twins on his toughest milestone challenge to a rigorous "Kokoro" training camp designed to forge mental toughness and modeled on Navy SEAL Hell Week. But when the twins' old habits begin to reemerge, Chris becomes concerned they may not be able to meet their weight loss goals. The Season 3 Premiere of "Extreme Weight Loss" (formerly "Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition,") airs TUESDAY, MAY 28 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

The hit series returns for Season 3 as transformational specialist Chris Powell (author of the New York Times bestseller, Choose to Lose, and the recently released Choose More, Lose More for Life), documents the amazing makeover of 15 courageous, "super obese" people who, in an unprecedented 365 days, set out to safely lose up to half of their body weight, ultimately revealing an amazing metamorphosis. In each of the 13 stand-alone, two-hour episodes, the participants undergo a transformation not only of their bodies, but of who they are as individuals. By assuring they have the proper nourishment and exercise, Powell provides a fresh perspective to individuals whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight. He guides each of the participants through their transformation process by moving into their homes with their families or loved ones. The upcoming season is filled with remarkable and eye-opening changes, including a married couple, and the inspiring story of an amputee who worked to shed the weight he gained after losing his limb.

From the producers of ABC's celebrity diving series, "Splash," "Extreme Weight Loss" is executive-produced by JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Matt Assmus, and Brant Pinvidic. It is produced by Eyeworks USA. "Extreme Weight Loss" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate.
