Extreme Lincoln Makeover?

October 24, 2006 at 1:00am By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Rumors are flyin’ around town that Ty and the Extreme Home Makeover crew are due in town next week. Froggy 98.1 morning show personality Gary is apparently the originator of the rumor, his source being his brother’s girlfriend. Is it true? We’ll have to wait and see. If it is true, look for the Huskers to be involved somehow, and you can count on Cindy Lange-Kubick to track Ty’s every move.

haven’t they already been in town once?

Nice! That’s awesome if it’s true. Any clue from these people on who or which neighborhood it will be in?

One other admission: Although it would be cool to have them do one in Lincoln featuring lincolnites, in my heirarchy of favorite reality TV show-types, I would first rather see (in no order):


- A lincolnite who works at Nelnet on “The Apprentice”

- Rachel Ray doing a “$40 a day” in Lincoln (God that would be so easy)

- An “Iron Chef America” or “Throw Down” featuring a good lincolnite chef versus Bobby Flay (like the dude at Billy’s)

- A “City Confidential” on Lincoln

- A “Dateline: To Catch A Predator” based in Lincoln

Oh yeah and I forgot to mention: a “Cops” in Lincoln. That would be awesome.

me and Mr. Wilson know a cop in Lincoln…hmmm…that could work.

To Catch a Predator in Lincoln would just be way to freaky for me.  Cause Lincoln is still small enough that you would know someone that walked in or at least you would know someone who knew someone.

*cue former University of Nebraska Band director joke here*

Yep. But that would be the entertaining part: seeing someone you know getting caught as an internet predator. And when they walk into Chris Hansen’s house, they’d probably be wearing a husker t-shirt or something.

I live across the street from Bethany Park.  I have a MySpace account.  If someone with a camcorder wants to go in on this venture…  Oh yeah, I guess we need a girl too.

No that’s the beauty of the show. You don’t actually need a real girl. You just need someone pretending to be an underage girl to hit the chat rooms like they do on the show. The only remaining contingency is - what if a congressman takes the bait and shows up?

Apparently they’re currently at or will be at 68th and Platt in Havelock.

Mr. Wilson October 27, 2006 at 2:57pm

Very cool. Thanks for the update, Dave K. If anybody is in the area and gets some photos, send them my way, won’t you? Thanks!

That’s my old stomping grounds Mr. Wilson.  Maybe you should contact the other guy that lives near there.

Mr. Wilson October 27, 2006 at 7:43pm

Oh really? How close is it?
