Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Is anyone else a total sucker for the show? I'm such a weenie I cry at the commercials, but I absolutely love watching it. I'm glad it's just me, the baby and the cats in the house so there's no one to tease me for going into the "ugly cry"!

  • I hate the concept of this show.

    Giving someone a windfall isn't going to help them.

    I know at least one of these new homeowners refinanced to pull 1/2 a million dollars out and then had the house foreclosed on.

    And another bought a brand new SUV with the money from the fund the show set up for home maintenance, but didn't pay their utility bills.

    I find that disgusting. Most people work damn hard for everything they have, pay bills on time, and only get/do what they want after all of the obligations are met.

     (That said, yes the show makes me cry and I am sure there are some people that are actually deserving and take the wonderful gift they have been given and use the financial relief to better their lives. I'm a tad cynical.)

  • I do cry   But I also have heard the same stories that Punky Monkey is referring to, and it makes me cynical as well.

    But I cry at everything!
