mariah carey surprises extreme makeover home edition winner at his job

Cafeteria worker Finis Gaston's day went from awesome to even MORE awesome!

During lunch time at Baker School, Ty Pennington of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition appeared in his cafeteria, bullhorn and all. Here's what Gaston had to say about it:

“I almost threw up."

Two colleagues of Gaston had submitted a video of the Baker man's home to Extreme Makeover producers the year before, and producers had been in contact on and off, but this still came as a shock to everyone.

Here's what a 7th grader Brittany Anderson had to say about it:

“We saw the camera crew come in the cafeteria and thought they were just going to interview him again. Then Ty ran in and everybody started screaming. Finis was in shock and everything.”

But what was the real suprise? The show's big bus rolled up to the school and out came the one and only Mariah Carey!

Finis Gaston was floored by all of this, and was even more excited about the possibility of getting an improved living situation for his family, including his niece and nephews, whom he's raised since both his sisters were involved in a fatal car wreck.

Gaston left college to raise the children, and had been living in a home with many vital repairs needed, but now, he's getting offered a new job in Pensacola, where the producers of Extreme Makeover are setting him up with a new house.

Here's what Gaston had to say about it:

“I feel everything I’ve prayed for is going my way. I’ve been on my knees a lot of nights praying everything will go our way for my family.”

We're happy for you Gaston, and we think it's AWESOME that Mariah made an appearance at your school in Baker to break the amazing news!

How would U react if Mariah Carey showed up at your job?

    I'd rip her top off and expose those titties once and for all



  2. 2

    Thar' she blows.



  3. 3

    Homegirl is getting big, and not in a good kinda Christina Hendricks way.



  4. 4

    Is she the house getting remodeled??



  5. 5

    Wonder when she's due and reveals to the world that Eminem is the baby daddy.



  6. 6

    Is she looking chunky? I believe so.



  7. 7

    Tough crowd here today…some of this stuff is made for free-shots but I'll be nice and offer: We read the "news", gossip, etc.,. and we perceive these media celebrities certain ways that admittedly can be wrong or misconstrued.
    Good for you Mariah…and may good karma reveal itself to you!



  11. 11

    I heard she only stopped by to use the toilet in the new house; she forgot to flush…



  12. 12

    Doesn't anyone tell her she is getting HUGE? The "Ready to Explode" look does not look good on her….



  13. 13

    is she fat or pregnant ?



  14. 14

    After I hid all the food in the office fridge from this cow, I would then find my way to the nearest restroom to barf if this heifer showed up on my job.



  15. 15

    PEREZ, Why do you keep using the same photo of Mariah in EVERY Bloody Mariah post? The same dress just different poses. She didn't look her best in these and I am wondering if that's the reason you keep using them. GET SOME NEW Bloody pics omg!



  16. 16

    It will take the entire crew just to cover her belly rolls in tarp.



  17. 17

    Isn't 4 years looking like a cow a little long for a supposed pregnancy?



  18. 18

    why is their so much hate towards one of the greatest musical artist of our time? is it envy?

    That's a fun show that does a lot of good. it is all about sharing which ad driven tv seldom discusses. Good for you Mariah.
