Remember the blink and you miss it marriage between Kim Kardashian and St. Cloud native gone pro basketball player Kris Humphries? Well, Facebook reminded me that it was five years ago today that the former "it" couple made surprise stops to the St. Cloud area. The basketball star has many ties to the area. His mom is a Tech High School graduate.

The couple stopped at Five Guys Burgers And Fries for lunch--a restaurant which is partly owned by Kris Humphries' parents.

Then, the couple stopped at the Boys And Girls Club to speak with the kids about being motivated to follow their dreams and passions. Humphries' grandparents have been heavily involved in the Boys And Girls Club for years.

Their visit made local, state and national news headlines. I got the opportunity to meet the both of them when they came to St. Cloud and I even briefly appeared in a scene of their wedding special. The episode, which was featured on the Entertainment Network, had the largest viewership at the time with 27 million viewers.

It was kind of neat to see some local faces featured at the national level! What celebrity stops to the St. Cloud area do you remember?
