The crew of Extreme Makeover Home Edition has been here in Medford for the past week. Lot's of frenzy for sure! Today it was announced that at 3:00 pm the reveal to the McPhail family of their new home would take place. I wasn't able to head up to the site but dear hubby did. He was there from about 1:30 - 3:00. He sent me a few pics on my cell phone of the site and finished house. (I'll attempt to get downloaded later). BUT, what I found extremely amusing is that the 3:00 "reveal" wasn't with the actual FAMILY at all. It was actually some filmed "scenes" with "stunt doubles". Yup, even "reality" TV has "Hollywood" infused.
A little after three pm this afternoon I was watching a live news feed from the site. The limousine and "family" shot they showed wasn't the McPhails' at all, but rather their stunt doubles.
It wasn't until about six pm that the actual reveal took place.
There will stil be some "extreme" activity for a day or two during clean up. I'll try to get some photos posted.
In the end...this was a VERY deserving family of a new home! A very proud moment for Jackson County, Oregon! So many folks came out and gave of their time so willingly for this project.
Way to GO Medford, Oregon! Put us on the map!
