The Wild Card Results - July 29

It's time for the results of the Wild Card show. My first thought on this is that they better not repeat the same debacle as last year, when the eliminated contestants didn't realize that they were eliminated and some of the non-eliminated contestants walked off the stage. It was funny, albeit unintentional.

Jay says that one of these 5 eliminated contestants will be joining the round of 6. He compares them to Martha Stewart, as he wonders that maybe America is on her side. She then wants Martha Stewart to go to community service, because all of the roads will be spotless. We then go into being on UPN and being married as other signs of losing.

We get the applause and reintroduction of the comics. Each of them will once again perform, and then we'll get the voting results. We also get the five finalists opinion's - and they all thought the five comics brought it. At this point, we know this is all publicity claptrap because even Tammy and Kathleen says that they enjoyed Bonnie's performance.

We start off with Corey, who talks about getting a camera phone to make sure that things are consensual. He then talks about gladly bringing in the video tape to show in court. "If you can see the same tape that I am seeing, you can tell that I am losing the wrestling match." He was pretty funny, probably matching the level that he did last night.

Next up - the 'comic without boundaries' (don't look at me - Jay said that), Bonnie McFarlane. She repeats the earlier set with her giving the homeless man money for crack and then him buying a turkey sandwich (which was the funniest thing that she has ever done) and then the 'everybody hates  me' joke and the ex-boyfriend. Well, the good news is that there is no new material that I can hate her with. The bad news is that there is no new material.

Jay London, the subject of the funniest roast and the sexiest photo shoot (again, according to Jay) is up next. He goes into his hair and talks about how he was lonely, so he hugged the road. He does a road sketch and he pulls out other new material. He has some very funny material and I still think he's the best of the group tonight.

The 4th comic up is ANT, who talks about moving to China and creating his own empire - the Hung Dynasty. He gives us new material on prisons life - and old material about the confrontation at the drive-in. He was good, but I liked his material better on the Tuesday show.

Jay says that Todd may be giving out his farewell performance. We can only hope. He goes to K-Mart to buy a tuxedo and he implores the crowd to laugh along. I guess that sound editing does wonders, doesn't it? He says he believes in Karma, which means hopefully he'll be the second one gone (right behind Bonnie).

We're done with the comics - and we're starting with the eliminations. The first person to go is... Bonnie McFarlane! Jay was glad to see her in the competition and we see the eternal montage of her - including the 'c-word' segment. She says she enjoyed her time here (could have fooled me) and she leaves.

The next person to leave is - Corey Holcomb. That gets booing from the audience and you can tell by the look on his face that he'd like to boo, too. We get his montage as he leaves to a standing ovation.

The third placed finisher is... ANT! That also gets boos (hey kids, only one person can win, you can't be booing everyone - unless they are like me and are wondering how Todd is still up there). We get his montage, and he says that he had the best time ever. "A year from now, no one will remember who won this competition, but you will all remember me." Well... uh... ok.

So either Todd Glass or Jay London will get to play for another week. That person will be... Jay London! That gets the crowd going nuts with a standing ovation, and I have a feeling that the voting (as the results weren't announced) could have been a landslide. Before we give Jay his props, we see Todd's montage, including the attention song and all of the annoying things he's done in the house. Todd thanks everyone and then leaves.

Jay London thanks everyone and moves to the other 5 finalists, which now makes it a total of 6. Alonzo Boden, Jay London, Tammy Pescatelli, Kathleen Madigan, John Heffron and Gary Gulman will all battle it out next week - and I'll be there to recap it for you.
