But, it's been so popular, it's become an annual traveler representing Idaho in all of it's spud-ness.

Kristie Wolf, one of the crew members for the Big Idaho Potato, decided that she would take the original and turn it into a vacation home. It's a giant potato Airbnb, basically. The plan is to put a small bedroom, bathroom and sitting area in it. How weird would it be to fix french fries inside of a huge potato? Now, you can find out for yourself.
