TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Emmy-winning actress Martha Plimpton, who plays a housekeeper on the hit TV comedy "Raising Hope," got her hands dirty at a Tampa family's house.
On Tuesday, Plimpton and co-star Garret Dillahunt helped clean family's home as part of a Fox network promotion. The show's season finale is March 28.
Ben Waberman, who is 26, entered and won an online contest by writing an essay about how his family was similar to the Chance clan on the TV show.
Plimpton showed up at the family's door in the pink uniform she wears on the show, while Dillahunt, who plays a pool cleaner, skimmed leaves out of the Waberman family's pool.
Waberman's parents said they were shocked when their son won the contest.
