The Extreme Explosion...

Check this out! The Extreme Makeover Home Edition team blew up Chris and Niki Hampton's house live on KSPR News at 6. Talk about good timing! They were a few hours behind schedule, but it worked our perfectly for news purposes!

Here's another clip from 10 that shows the explosion from three different angles.

Joe Daues told me this is only the second time in Extreme Makeover history that they've blown up a house.

Wow! But why did they blow it up? Couldn't they salvage for Habitat for Humanity? I need to find out more. I think I just Debbie Downered that fun explosion. Oops.

Michelle said...

Hmmm... this is a good question. I don't know what they'll do with it. I do know that Habitat was mentioned and any leftover will go there... but I can't speak for the old house. Let me ask!

Craig said...

They told me that Habitat checked out the house before hand and there was not anything worth salvaging from the old home.
