Who won a date with the Lake Stevens ‘Woodchopping Dad’?

Shane McDaniel’s twin sons and TV host Steve Harvey are helping the busy single dad find love.

He’s the buff Lake Stevens single dad who made global headlines for chopping 80 truckloads of firewood with his twin sons to give to people in need.

Hollywood also took notice of the available 47-year-old Shane McDaniel.

McDaniel appeared on a 7-minute segment of TV host Steve Harvey’s show that aired Tuesday called “Date the Woodchopping Dad!”

The 21-year-old twins, Henry and Harrison, wanted to find their busy father a suitable girlfriend.

Harvey’s producers consulted with the twins and selected three bachelorettes:

Hailey, an actress and TV reporter originally from the South.

Jessi, a California deejay and dancer/performer.

And Carly, owner of a yoga studio … in Lake Stevens. She lives less than two miles from McDaniel.

McDaniel’s sons helped him pick the winner.

How did the date go?

Details in an upcoming story in The Daily Herald.
