‘Extreme Makeover’s’ Paige Hemmis Is First To Let The Tears Flow

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Paige Hemmis is the tough, tomboy carpenter on the ABC show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition but that doesn’t mean she’s not afraid to show her sensitive side.

In fact, Hemmis admits she’s often the “first to go” when a family sees their house for the first time and her crying gets so out of control that it’s “annoying.”

Says Hemmis: “I’ll try to hold back but when you see big, burly construction guys with tears in their eyes, well it’s really hard not to cry too.”

As she puts it, “These families have been through so much and it breaks my heart every time.”

She says the tears don’t often come until the end of the project and she says she never operates any power tools when she’s emotional.

Besides helping those less fortunate than herself, Hemmis also is the author of The Tuff Chix Guide To Easy Home Improvement (Plume).
