Per his personal post on Facebook, Iron River native Nick Baumgartner will be featured on an episode Thursday night. Along with the Beijing Olympic gold medalist, the episode will also feature ‘Ridiculousness’ co-host/producer Steelo Brim and Grammy Award-winning singer Macy Gray.

“How excited you get when you find out your Cribs] episode will air tomorrow!,” Baumgartner said in his post.

For those who don’t remember what the show is about, ‘MTV Cribs’ is a TV series that showcases homes of celebrities, musicians, athletes and other well-known public figures. Such celebrities that were profiled include hip-hop star 50 Cent, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, singer Mariah Carey and former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.
