—Barbara King, Clarksburg, Maine

After years of renovating people's homes on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Pennington, 47, recently joined the cast of ABC's new daytime series The Revolution, on which he uses his design and carpentry skills to continue helping people transform their lives. In addition, the Atlanta, Ga.-born handyman continues to develop his home decor line for Sears, design new pieces for his Signature Home Furnishings collection and write books. "I am blessed to have the kinds of jobs that do change someone's life, that have an impact, and that you can see make a difference. There are not many opportunities in life that you get a chance to do that," he says.
