I didn't know that was Jewel's dad. I always thought that she had been homeless at some point living in a car with her mom?

I always thought that she had been homeless at some point living in a car with her mom?No one said he was a good dad... We had friends that were selected to be interviewed by independent film crews, that forward the stories to the shows producers from what I gathered, to be on Extreme Home Makeover. This was summer '11 (or '10?) pre-cancelation. The crew interviewed my wife and basically tried to get her to cry/get emotional while telling our friends story. Even saying that our friends may lose the house...news to us! They wanted (needed?) a sob story real or imagined. I never liked the show to begin with but this sold me on the opinion that it's mostly a bunch of bunk. Not to mention, as a carpenter I'd like to see how those houses, built in a weeks time, hold up after 5-10yrs let alone 20+.I'm not saying they didn't help some people out that needed it, I'm sure they did, but I think that was more a by-product rather than the goal. Which rings hollow to me.That being said...My family and I are huge Survivor fans and we all sit down and watch it weekly. I even went so far as to fill out an app but I never got around to sending it in and with baby #3 here not sure that will get crossed off the bucket list. And while I'm sure they 're-shoot' scenes and whatever else we'll keep watching. 'Reality' TV with a grain of salt, you might say. So I hate to say it DoctorB, but I'm voting you off the island! JM
