In the middle of New York City, a woman named Diane Minard was chosen for a surprise televised makeover. And, if that wasn’t enough of a shock, her incredible transformation led her son to compare her to one of the most famous celebrities on the planet.
Minard made the 371-mile journey from her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to New York City for the first time in her life. The 46-year-old was visiting the Big Apple with her husband Jeff and children Max and Abby.
Moreover, Minard and her family just so happened to be in the crowd gathered outside of Today’s Studio 1A on a day when the TV show’s crew would be filming an ambush makeover. They immediately honed in on Minard who was standing in the front row. In fact, they couldn’t really miss her, clad as she was in an eye-catching pink T-shirt.
