Eight contestants for Macy's Million Dollar Makeover
Mar '11
The path to personal reinvention officially begins as Macy's announces eight contestants who will vie for a chance to win "Macy's Million Dollar Makeover with Clinton Kelly." After launching in late December with a nationwide call for entries, eight finalists have been selected from more than 19,000 applications representing every U.S. state. They will compete for America's affection and a chance to win the ultimate prize: $1 million worth of products, services, cash and experiences that will transform the winner's life.

"Macy's Million Dollar Makeover will be a life-changing experience," said Clinton Kelly, Macy's style expert and co-host of TLC's What Not to Wear. "With eight inspiring contestants, it is an enormous challenge and honor to help reshape their personal style in preparation for Americans to vote for their favorite contestant as the ultimate winner. Applying a blend of fashion expertise, style secrets and self-confidence counseling, I will have these men and women shining as brightly as the stars I know they can become."

The eight contestants are:

• Nicole Box, 26, McClure, IL
• Annamarie Chestnut, 36, Royersford, PA
• Tara Clark, 39, Maricopa, AZ
• Julie Evener, 39, Lancaster, OH
• Amy Ferrell, 35, Wenatchee, WA
• Debrah Green, 58, Chicago, IL
• Ingrid Magnani, 35, St. Petersburg, FL
• Christian Taylor, 36, Modesto, CA

Throughout the month of February, the eight contestants each received a head-to-toe makeover with fashions from Macy's and the expertise of Clinton Kelly. Their personal stories will be revealed to the public via Macy's Facebook page.

The contestants with the most votes each week will continue to the semi-finals in April. The two videos that receive the most votes in the semi-finals will determine which two contestants compete in the final round. Videos for all rounds of voting will be posted at Macy's Facebook page, giving America the chance to decide who will ultimately win Macy's Million Dollar Makeover.

"'Macy's Million Dollar Makeover with Clinton Kelly' will give eight deserving customers a chance to completely reinvent their lives," said Martine Reardon, executive vice president of marketing for Macy's. "As a fashion destination, Macy's aims to provide regular style tips and guidance to all of our customers, but this amazing makeover opportunity takes transformation to a new level with life changing results."

Macy's, the largest retail brand of Macy's Inc, delivers fashion and affordable luxury to customers at more than 800 locations in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. Macy's stores and macys.com offer distinctive assortments including the most desired family of exclusive and fashion brands for him, her and home.
