In a big surprise for the talented duo, DeGeneres revealed that her show will be producing a brand new digital series about them called “The Build Up”.

“We’re going to follow you around the city of Baltimore,” she explained. “What you’ve gone through to get to where you are.”

The host then brought out home makeover experts Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, who will be working with Fletcher and Perry to help rebuild areas of their Baltimore community.

DeGeneres also announced another big surprise as part of the new show: keys to a brand new apartment, rent-free for a year.
