Meet the IOWA NICE Guy

Native Iowan and the host of Iowa Outdoors on Iowa Public Television, Scott Siepker, teamed up with his friend Paul Benedict to make a popular YouTube video dispelling some of the common stereotypes about Iowa.

“The main objective was just to make people laugh,” Siepker, 29, said.
The video, titled “Iowa Nice,” does have more serious purposes as well. Because there is no Democratic challenger for President Barack Obama, a one-sided perspective of Iowans is being highlighted with the national media in town for the first-in-the-nation caucuses, Siepker said.

“The ideal outcome is to get people to know Iowa as it is, and not what you think it is,” said Siepker, whose favorite stereotypes are that Iowans are all just a bunch of hillbillies and that Iowa is where all the potatoes come from. Click Here to continue the 2012 Iowa Caucus feed.
