Ty Pennington - presenter and team leader of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Lovable jock, handy carpenter and owner of a killer set of pecs, he's also possessed with an inexhaustible supply of energy and is always the one to boost the team's flagging morale at 3am. We met up with him to talk about all things Ty.
To maintain that physic, you'd imagine that Ty does nothing but exercise! But far from a gym nut, Ty actually does most of his exercise in the ocean, either swimming or surfing. To relax he likes to play the guitar, write songs, and (bizarrely) work. A kid at heart, Ty loves to bring playfulness into whatever he’s doing, and that goes for work too. He admits that although he would love to have kids one day, he first wants to make sure that he can spend a decent amount of time with them.
