The reality series Operation: Vacation will surprise a foster mom with a dream vacation to Hana on its July 29 episode. With the secret help of family and friends, the show honors Jacqueline Brooks, who has fostered more than 100 children–many that were severely troubled and needed attention 24/7. The dedicated mom once won a vacation, but did not accept the trip because she couldn’t afford to take her kids along. Now that her house isn’t filled with children, her family and friends said they thought it was about time for Brooks to go on the vacation of her dreams.
MTV Networks’ Logo TV recently filmed the documentary show at the Travaasa Hana boutique resort. The Hana episode follows Brooks and her husband during their trip to Maui, showing off the areas they are touring, the activities they are doing and the places they are staying. The couple experience the Hana lifestyle while riding horses, throwing fishing nets, enjoying live Hawaiian music, indulging in a couples massage, and more.
“Operation: Vacation–Jacqueline Brooks” (Season 2, Episode 6) airs Tuesday, July 29 at 4pm HST on Logo TV (Channel 542 on Oceanic–Hawaii). Check local listings for other markets. Clips from the television series also are available on the Logo TV website Logotv.com.
