I think it is just having issues with the exclamation point that you added, make sure to do exactly what they have or it can cause issues. Also, I think they want you to redeclare subject. I tried this and it works:

name = "Sarah" 
subject = "Treehouse loves {}"
subject = "Treehouse loves {}".format(name)

Actually this works too:

name = "Sarah" 
subject = "Treehouse loves {}".format(name)

Thanks so much!
