Back in May 2010, the Travel Channel filmed here at the Roff Home for the third edition of “The Most Terrifying Places in America.” The filming was a hoot.
Today we learned the initial air date for our episode: Oct. 1, 2010.
Now we just need to figure out when to tune in. Unfortunately, the Travel Channel is being tight-lipped about the time.
So in the meantime, we’ll be content to google oursevles every day (Roff Home + Travel Channel + OMG + WHAT TIME??!!??!?!). I’m sure we’ll look like an obsessed narcissist to whoever’s watching web traffic behind the scenes. But c’mon, Google and Travel Channel, have you ever been to Watseka? There’s nothing to do here but google yourself. (In fact, I’m googling myself right now.)
We love you, Travel Channel. We love everything about you. And this is our plea to you.
You’re the people who’ve given us “Ghost Adventures,” with the dreamy ghost guy with the big ghost-seekin’ arms.
You’ve shocked us with the stomach-churning thrill ride that is Andrew Zimmerman’s “Bizarre Foods.” We cringe with horror every time we watch it. Seeing that guy eat his way through a fried rat stand at a Thai outdoor jungle market in steaming, no-refrigeration heat is scarier than anything you’ll ever experience here at the Roff Home.
And you’ve blessed us with “America’s Worst Driver.” Honestly, is there any other way to feel better about yourself than to spend some time watching the confused and distracted have a meltdown while trying to drive across town? I think not!
So, please, Travel Channel, just throw us a crumb. Let that small morsel fall off the table and into our welcoming hands. Just whisper that air time in our ears. We won’t tell a soul. It’ll be our little secret. I promise.
