“House Hunters,” one of HGTV’s most well-known shows, recently featured Lindsay (Hartmann) Hample and her husband, Ryan. Lindsay, a 2005 graduate of MSUM, majored in mass communications and loved anchoring on Campus News and playing on the conference champion women’s basketball team. Lindsay also serves as the vice president of the MSUM Alumni Foundation Board of Directors.
While in the process of finding a new home in the Twin Cities area, Lindsay and Ryan were encouraged by their realtor to fill out an online application for the show. Only 45 minutes after Ryan clicked “Submit,” they received the exhilarating news that they were to be the next couple featured on the popular TV program.
“The experience was a lot of fun,” Lindsay said. “The crew was amazing to work with and made the process an enjoyable one.”
When the episode first aired, the Hamples watched it quietly in the comfort of their new home.
“Every once in a while, we re-watch the show and compare what our house looks like before and after, which serves as a good reminder of our hard work.”
The “House Hunters” episode featuring the Hamples will be aired again this Saturday, Oct. 12 at 6 p.m. on HGTV.
