After three Cleveland women escaped from a house, after 10 years of captivity, the neighbor who helped free them became a national sensation. 

Charles Ramsey's interview went viral, and we met up with him in Floyd County, of all places.

Ramsey came to meet and greet people in Stanville.

He didn't disappoint.

"He was just like I thought he was," said Taylor Sampson from Pikeville.

Attorney Eric C. Conn invited Ramsey to come hang out at his law firm.

"I called his phone about a thousand times," said Conn.

"It's just too many fine women around this town.  So, it'll be a long time before I get married.  I'd be a fool to be married."

After Charles Ramsey said this in his viral interview:

"I was eating my McDonald's."

McDonald's tweeted they would be in touch.  We wondered what happened.

"I call them, not on the phone, I go to every McDonald's that I can possibly go to, and ask for a Big Mac.  'What happens?'  They give me the Big Mac.  'For Free?  Stupid question?' Precisely," said Ramsey.

He became so popular, people made remixes, and now he has his own statue.

Ramsey says he turned down reward money, and except for the fame...

"It's still the same.  Cus if I go back to Hodges I'd be a dish washer.  I can't go to the Lamborghini company, and have them make me a custom built without $2.3 million. So, nothing's changed.  Still the same," said Ramsey.

Eric C. Conn says bigger is better, and bringing Ramsey to town may have topped the giant Lincoln Memorial replica statue in his parking lot.
