Gordon: This is Gordon
Pepper, and we will be playing improv this morning!
Chico: Really? I love improv!
Gordon: Really, because we don't know our opening segment.
Jason: What? Didn't you get the script?
Chico: Does it have anything to do with this week being a little... sad?
Gordon: It could be, but it also has to do with the fact that our segments have
been decided by (points to you people reading this)...them.
Jason: Really? (points) Them?
Gordon: (points) Them.
Jason: Our loyal friends and true? (TM)
Gordon: Yep. We have people reading this, you know.
Chico: And we love'em.
Jason: We do.
Chico: So sit back... Grab your preferred drink of choice... and enjoy, because
this show... is for you. From somewhere in America... We Love to Interrupt ...
Chico: Chico Alexander with you alongside Gordon and the guy he keeps bringing
in week after week to keep us in line, Jason Block.
Jason: This week should be fun. As it always is.
Gordon: True - but it's more fun when the viewers decide what's going on
Jason: So what DO the viewers want to talk about?
Chico: Okay, we're starting with...
Edd Hall: Welcome to Merv Griffin's Crosswords!
Chico: After months of hype surrounding the final magnum opus of legendary game
master Merv Griffin, the show finally premieres. The premise is simple...
Complete a crossword. It accomplishes this in four steps...
1.) Answer more right than your opponent.
2.) Manage to keep your podium against three spoilers...
3.) Complete the crossword for a bonus round trip
Gordon: That's funny, Chico. I saw 4 different steps. Would you like to know
what I saw?
Chico: What did you see?
1.) Answer clues that could have more than 1 answer, making it a Playmania-like
Chico: Not unlike your standard crossword.
2.) Manage your podium against 3 spoilers, tilting the game in their
advantage and allowing me, as a Spoiler to go out, order a pizza, come back,
only answer 1 question correctly, and win the game.
Chico: You saw Thursday's show.
Gordon: Ah...yes. yes I did.
3.) Answer a 'Daily Double' like clue on the podium, skyrocketing yourself
into the lead and having the person on the second podium have no prayer of
winning, because they can't switch to your podium. That would prompt the person
in second to start answering the questing incorrectly to move her in a spoiler
Chico: Or "playing on tilt" in proper parlance.
4.) Profit, in a knowledge game, where ironically, it's better to be lucky
Jason: Ok Gordon. Do me a favor and take the stick out of your butt.
Gordon: But it's a pretty stick.
Chico: That's all for this show, join us next time... heh...
Jason: I think you are WAY overreacting to this show. This is an incredibly fun
show which isn't perfect, but is very good for what it does. I like the level of
the questions....and calling them playmania like is insulting the question
writers if you ask me.
Chico: I'd have to agree with Jason there. Writer of a crossword is the most
loveless of loveless vocations. Million people will know of your work, but no
one will care. =p
Jason: We are not talking about Weekly Reader here. Some of the clues were
Chico: And unlike the Playmania queries, the puzzle itself lends to one answer.
But enough love for crossword writers :-)
Gordon: I don't have a problem with tough clues. I have a MAJOR problem with
clues that have not only more than 1 answer, but an obscure one at that.
Jason: That happens in a regular crossword too. That's why you do them in
Chico: Wait... you do them in PENCIL?
Gordon: I do them in pencil too.
Gordon: But you shouldn't have that happen in a game show. Insults. _ _ _ _
Gordon: It could be, but that's not what the producers are looking for. And
that's my point.
Gordon: C U T S. Can I have a Big Board please?
Dr. Pepper's Prescription to
1) Fix the
2) Get rid of the second podium
3) Two strikes and you're in
4) Returning champions
Gordon: The Subject - Dr.
Pepper's Prescription to Crosswords. Now I was savaging the game earlier on this
week to Jason.
Gordon: However, on thinking about it, there are ways to fix it and be much
better than what we currently have
Jason: Try me.
Gordon: 1. The clues. I actually like the hard clues.
Chico: The clues are good.
Gordon: If you have one with more than 1 possible answer, then stick a letter in
Insults -> _ _ _ _
Chico: They're the prescription to the dumbing down of the genre over the last
Gordon: Lots of choices. HOWEVER, if you say
Insults -> _ _ B _
Gordon: Then it's still hard, but you know the answer has to be Jabs
Chico: But that's not doing a crossword properly. That's looking at page D and
Gordon: Not at all. If you solve a puzzle, you'll have letters in the clue.
Besides, they do that in the game.
Gordon: In the Crosswords game itself, they have a letter in the clue.
Jason: Depending on the area of the puzzle, yes.
Chico: Because the words cross into each other.
Gordon: Exactly. All I am saying is to do that in clues that may have more than
1 possible answer.
Chico: Then it'd be Scrabble.
Gordon: No. Scrabble is a word game off of silly clues. This would be more
Chico: It likes to switch off. If you've ever sat down to do the Sunday
crossword... it's JUST like that... only it's about as big as the Daily
Jason: Its a combination of both.
Gordon: I agree with Jason on that. 2. Get rid of the second podium.
Gordon: All you're doing is screwing the second placed player if it's a runaway
Jason: One player games never work...
Gordon: It won't be a 1 player game. You keep the spoilers.
Chico: There's that first round to get out of the way.
Gordon: You intro the spoilers in immediately
Gordon: You have one person 'in control'. As long as he gets the questions
right, he plays. The person in second place right now - useless. Adds nothing to
the game and if anything, can help the person in first by getting a question
wrong and forcing a spoiler to switch spots with that person. #3. Two strikes
and you're in. As you can see in the game, you won't have someone run the board,
but it's painful to watch someone do nothing in the game and then win it. So
have a 2 check system, where the spoiler has to get 2 right. It adds to the
tension, and at the same time, gives the player some - but not a lot of -
Chico: Makes sense.
Gordon: 4. Returning champion. We have a tight budget. Would it hurt to have a
Jason: That point I will concede.
Chico: Hell, even Temptation has a returning champ. (we'll get to that later,
Jason: That too.
Gordon: So to grade...The Good...Good questions, Fast Play, Solid Bonus Round.
The Bad - Vague Questions, and the 1 question and you win syndrome.
Chico: The bad... Ty... I'm hoping he'll get at ease soon. You can only say
"JOHN with a chance to spoil" so many ways.
Jason: Ty is better than Rossi Morreale. Not saying much though
Gordon: That's like saying that sardine ice cream tastes better than pickle ice
Chico: Ty's a better host, Rossi's a better ad-libber (not by much).
Gordon: One thing they both have in common - all they are doing is 'hosting'.
Neither of them has a grasp on the strategy of the game.
Chico: Well, Ty has admitted to acting more like a conduit than anything else.
Gordon: And that's a problem - he's supposed to be a host, not a conduit.
Chico: Another good thing... I at least can say that I was having a little fun
watching and shouting at the TV.
Jason: Yes, I got into the show right away...very viewer friendly.
Gordon: It's a good play at home game, but as a game that's in-studio, It needs
A LOT of work. The emperor isn't completely wearing no clothes, but he's wearing
a string bikini that looks ridiculous on him. C-
Chico: Well, I can take the game for what it is. What gets me is the whole
package was kinda made on the cheap. I mean the theme song was a prize cue on
Wheel... Come On!
Gordon: I forgot to mention that, yes. And the 80's version, at that.
Chico: And I don't know about you, but if I'm living in or planning to visit
Southern Califonia, what makes you think I'm going to want to win a trip to
Gordon: What about a trip to the LaBrea Tar Pits?
Chico: You're not going to leave me there again are ya?
Gordon: Don't tempt me ;).
Jason: Even with all the warts, I think the show is the best show to come out in
a while. Ty will improve and I like the quaility of the questions. B-
Chico: But seriously, it's all there, it just needs to be kicked up a bit. B-.
Gordon: I don't think it's going to get kicked up at all.
Chico: You read the story, then.
Gordon: I did. Ratings - bad.
Chico: Both new syndie entries... not really making that much noise.
Gordon: Well, there's a reason. Neither show is that good.
Jason: Wrong. Bad scheduling.
Gordon: The scheduling doesn't help. Neither does the show's content.
Chico: Well, you're both right. The shows in and of themselves both need a
little sanding down.
Gordon: Neither show is a complete show. There are many holes in it.
Chico: But putting it up either in late night or against Oprah. That's asking
Jason: Still, who was the genius who put Crosswords at NY at 4PM against Oprah
and Judge Judy?
Chico: Someone who was way too hopeful. There's being hopeful, and then there's
being smart. But Pyramid didn't even get a 2.0 in its first week. It got a 1.0.
Maybe higher. Probably close. It had to rise to a 2.0.
Jason: And it's gone.
Chico: It was cancelled prematurely.
Gordon: No it wasn't. Sorry. Pyramid, the remake wasn't that great. The budget
was cheap, the hosting was subpar and the rule changes were negative, not
positive. I don't want a game show up there and then praise how good it is or
was when it wasn't.
Chico: But at least the game was solid.
Gordon: No, it wasn't solid. The celebrities were awful and the contestants were
Chico: The man wanted less clues to get a few commercials in =p
Gordon: If you want a game, then play it. Don't make a game 'harder' by
Chico: But it lasted two good years... These two probably won't last one.
Jason: Which is the sad thing.
Chico: These two, yes.
Gordon: And the way it is now, neither of them should survive the first season
Chico: The rule is "All it takes is one"... and we may have to wait until next
fall. Deal or No Deal, baby. :-)
Jason: Which is wrong to me.
Chico: Manic people... vs. Game theory...We'll get to that next week.
Gordon: I'm not too thrilled on a game that once again cuts on the original.
Will people really tune in to watch $250,000 offered in less cases?
Chico: We'll see in a year. Meanwhile, next on our viewerpalooza... Drumroll,
"Wheel! Of! Fortune!"
Gordon: Now THAT'S a Merv Griffin game that works.
Chico: 25 years in syndication... zero signs of letting on.
Jason: Oh yeah.
Chico: If anything, it's only getting bigger, thanks to its age. Big board
Wheel's Older Than Dirt
1) The 25 Wedge
2) The Big Money Wedge
3) Retro clips
Chico: This one's called
"Wheel's Older Than Dirt"
Jason: ...but looks great for it's age
Gordon: It most certainly does. I like the BoTox
Chico: Has to be a steady diet of excitement, challenge, and luck. With
exercises in Pat's rapier wit and Vanna's shapely... well, whatever it is, it's
Jason: The game play adds were two...and they both worked.
Chico: But here's what's in store for season 25... 1.) The 25 Wedge.
Chico: Whoever hits it wins 25... something.
Jason: Like $2,500
Gordon: 25 weeks of Meals
Chico: Or 25 months of Netflix...
Jason: Or $2,500 GC to newegg.com et al.
Chico: That's a little creative branding from the Sony execs. My hat is off. But
the big change...
Jason: #2....The Big Money wedge
Chico: It changes every spin. Could be $5,000...Could be $7,500...Could be
$25,000 K...Could be Bankrupt...Could be Lose a Turn. If only all of the Wheel
was like that... :-)
Gordon: And then if you hit a Bankrupt, a little Wheelie comes out and makes fun
Chico: ... Touche :-) But yeah, the Big Money Spot adds a new dimension to that
Chico: Could probably put the game away with one lucky spin.
Gordon: It does - and I like it.
Jason: $25,000 is huge cash
Gordon: Big Money!
Chico: And of course, since it's an anniversary season, we get the retro clips.
Jason: Nothing funnier than a pie in the face.
Chico: Although some were from the NBC run, which isn't even officially
acknowledged... boo =p
Jason: The only thing that bothered me a little...no mention of the passing of
Merv...on either show.
Chico: Give it time. These eps were taped WELL in advance. Probably could've
spliced in an edit or two, but give it time. I'm hopeful.
Jason: I mean I know everyone made the press clips, but the shows should have
Gordon: True. But yes, great adds in Wheel. Unfortunately, we already had our
Chico: The only thing... The ONLY thing that could've brought down the party...
and it happened on Monday's show.
Jason: May I?
Jason: First Bonus Round of the new season....IN THE KITCHEN with the RSTLNE and
his choices of CDPA, he has
_ _ _ _ N _
_ _ _ L
Gordon: Oh that's easy.
Jason: and misses MIXING BOWL.... for...$100,000. (thud)
Chico: That's hard.
Jason: I got it. But then again, I get most of them :) Except at tapings with
Chico: Well, you're way too qualified for Wheel anyway =p
Jason: Kudos to Wheel...looks like another successful season on the way.
Chico: And here's to 25 more with wax droids that look like Pat and Vanna :-)
Gordon: Yep, Now I'm looking for #3...in the Viewer's choice
Chico: Here it is...
"This! Is! JEOPARDY!"
Jason: Same Verse same as the first...Except I had one problem with one clue
Chico: Do tell.
Jason: Didn't it seem that the Electronica category --- was basically a shill
Gordon: Uh...Jason, who funds Jeopardy?
Jason: I know...but still...It was more obvious than it's usual sponsored
Gordon: I can't blame Jeopardy too much on that. And we had the season's first
Chico: Four times.
Jason: A very good player.
Chico: Bow to Rick Kent, beeyotches. Although he did luck his way out of
Gordon: Yes, but he got more than answer right during the match :P
Gordon: He got Final Jeopardy right from the 3rd position and doubled up to win
Chico: But unfortunately, his reign would be short lived to the tune of $2,900.
Chico: Big ups to J-Archive.com for this one (storm was ravaging RDU). Matt
Caporaletti stops Rick Kent at three, winning $2,900 in a Final Jeopardy!
riddled with big bets and wrong responses. Here's what they had to deal with in
the category of Bread.
Larousse spread the tale that after a 18th Century triumph, the victors ate
this as a symbol of the beaten Muslims
Chico: We go to Gordon first...
Gordon: What is Challah?
Chico: What is Challah... No... sorry.
Jason: I saw this so I abstain.
Gordon: So what's the answer?
Chico: Correct response: What is a croissant?
Jason: Because the symbol of the Muslims was a crescent.
Chico: That's right.
Jason: (according to Alex Trebek)
Chico: No one bothered to Bob Harris the clue. "Bob Harris" being a verb for
"looking for a hidden clue"
Jason: From his book "Prisoner of Trebekistan". Still a great holiday gift.
Chico: The big one: "a symbol of the beaten Muslims".
Jason: Hence the hidden clue.
Chico: Makes sense. Matt bet conservatively and wins... $2,900... and a trip to
Gordon: Did he complete the grid to win it?
Chico: Before we move on, I just want to say one thing... I took one look at the
new graphics package and said to Q, who's another J! head in the Alexander
house, "This is gonna be a good year."
Jason: Both are going to do well....
Chico: Okay, next up...
"*hums "Millionaire" theme*
Gordon: We start with Meredith Vieira and...a rotating contestants circle.
Chico: Nice to know that some things never change.
Gordon: Meredith Vieira, for those who don't know, signed a 3 year extension
Jason: Ending the speculation of her not leaving and rewarding her for her
biggest ratings year ever.
Gordon: I think for her, it's a safety net, just in case her other hosting
duties don't go so well - but us game show fans thank her. Profusely.
Jason: We do.
Chico: We love you, Meredith.
Jason: Thank you Meredith for staying three more years.
Chico: Now as for gameplay, We saw a $100,000 question.
Excluding its fifty-six signatures, the Declaration of Independence ends with
Chico: I know this one. Not only because I watched it. Anyone?
Jason: I didn't see it...but I will guess A.
Gordon: I'll agree with Jason - A, which means I'll be wrong.
Chico: You're both WRONG!
Gordon: Told ya.
Chico: You're WRONG!
Gordon: Are we wrong?
Chico: You're WRONG!
Gordon: As in Incorrect?
Chico: and YOU'RE WRONG!
Jason: Really Wrong?
Chico: Both of you! WRONG! It's D!
Gordon: Do we get a home game?
Chico: Hell no! You were wrong!
Gordon: Do we get a copy of the Declaration of Independence?
Chico: Sure. Just Google "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm
reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each
other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor." Hit print. Done.
Jason: That's why you are good like that.
Chico: Word. Next?
Gordon: The next one is.....
Oh, look, Jason's favorite. Temptation.
Jason: Oh boy
Chico: *starts dancing to theme song*.... Nah, I can't do it. We're already in
our first week, and we already had someone who won a car.
Chico: And it was on a dual run episode, which half of the country doesn't get.
Gordon: Boo. Mark (last name unknown) was a 5 time champ, and got just enough
money to win the car.
Jason: And it was a Toyota Prius.. Keeping the budget cheap.
Gordon: He picked up $863. He needed $850 for the car.
Chico: So it wasn't the Jag that everyone else was playing for?
Gordon: Supposedly, that's a $23,000+ Car.
Jason: Yeah...but why not go for everything....that's what the old show did :)
Gordon: Good thing you mention it, Jay. Let's go over some of the rules.
Gordon: 1. You ONLY get 5 days on the show. Regardless of how much you make.
So...if Mark didn't win enough in 5 days, he doesn't get a car and he has to buy
whatever he has available.
Gordon: Nope. So by buying the Instant bargains, you could be kissing the car
Chico: 2. No buying the lot.
Gordon: No buying the lot. You don't get that option.
Chico: 3. No growing cash jackpot...
Jason: Which saves on the budget yet again :)
Chico: You really have to wail on the buzzer in the final round. Which Mark...
shopping ninja... did.
Gordon: True. So...Big board Please?
1) Before You Even Play, Decide Whether
or Not You Want the Car
2) Just Solve the Fame Game Puzzle
3) Hair Trigger Buzzer
4) Go for Instant Cash ONLY if you have 10 or less
5) Knock-Off: Go for Vague
Gordon: The Subject: The
rules on how to play THIS version of Temptation
Chico: Pay attention. A Jag may be riding on this.
Jason: Or Prius or similar car.
Gordon: 1. Before you even PLAY on the show, you have to make a decision - Do I
or do I not want the car? If you want the car, buy NOTHING. You will need all
the dollars you can get.
Chico: Not even the instant cash?
Gordon: We'll get to that later. If you just want the glory and a lot of schwag,
then buy everything.
Gordon: 2. Fame Game. Don't even bother listening to Rossi. Focus on the puzzle.
By the time he has any pertinent info, half the puzzle is revealed.
Jason: It is the Wheel of Fortune Speed Round.
Gordon: 3. This or That? You remember when you played it in You Don't Know Jack
and you just rung in? Same concept here. The second you hear a voice, ring in
and don't bother for him to finish the phrase. Thats where Mark scored a lot.
Everyone else was waiting to hear the complete answer. You don't have to. Just
Chico: Buzzer ninja!
Gordon: Exactly. #4. Instant Cash. You should ONLY go for it if your lead is $10
Chico: Because of the final round.
Gordon: $15 lead? No. $40 lead? No. Not only is the questions in the final round
$10 a pop, but youre also giving away money you may need later for the car.
Gordon: #5. Knock-Off. Go for the vague ones you know are correct first. They
are worth the most amount of money on the board.
Chico: This can be applied to Super Wipe-Off as well, right?
Gordon: This can be applied to Super Knock-Off as well.The easy ones are $2 and
$3 (regular round) and $25 (bonus round). The obscure ones can be worth $10-15
(regular round) and $100 (bonus round). Or Super Rip-Off.
Chico: Any more super strategies?
Gordon: Nope - that's it. Now I got an email requesting that we grade the show
again, now that civilians are playing it. I want to like the show, and I would
watch this over Crosswords. That being said, it's like saying that I'd rather
watch Leonid The Magnificent over Man-Kira.
Chico: The risk of returning champions doing it for you? Continuity?
Gordon: I like the continuity and the returning champions.
Chico: I like the continuity. Continuity is good...Just don't go skipping about
the schedule like some shows do (Feud).
Gordon: I also like that they have some of the elements intact, and that Instant
Cash is there. HOWEVER, you have to be able to Buy the Lot, and a 5 day limit is
Chico: Especially with this game.
Gordon: And Rossi isn't cutting it for me as the host. A host needs to explain
what's going on. He says Mark is the champion, but he doesn't talk about how
much he has or how much he needs until the very end, which adds no tension to
the show if you're a new viewer.
Chico: Remember when Jay Stewart used to lay it all on the line at the start of
Gordon: Yeah - they need to do that. And if you lose...you win nothing? Wha? Not
even a toaster?
Chico: How about a Croton watch? Me, my grade doesn't change. C.
Jason: I still think it's D for Dreck. This is NOT what we as fans of Sale, heck
Temptation wanted when they announced the show. This is a horrible bait and
switch by Fox.
Gordon: Still too many holes for me. C-, but it's a higher C- than Crosswords.
Chico: Okay, not much time in the opening round left, let's go to the final pick
in the viewer's choice...
*Biggest Loser theme playing*
Chico: New season... new twist... new host...The new twist... a secret Black
team. As opposed to the not-so-secret Red and Blue teams.
Gordon: Sort of like Treasure Hunters. They work out...in secret...unbeknownst
to the other 2 teams. First person to leave - Amber
Chico: Only replace Laird McIntosh with Alison Sweeney, game show ho
extro'dinare. Finally getting her own show.
Gordon: About time, if you ask me.
Chico: Is she any good (or at least as good as Caroline Rhea was)?
Gordon: I think she's better. She's more a nuts and bolts let's get down to it
person. This was actually the producer's first choice to host the show - and it
Chico: So you approve of Biggest Loser, season 2.
Gordon: I do, indeed.
Chico: Give it the Haterade Seal of approval.
Gordon: I approve. Did you know the Hamsters are also losing weight?
Chico: Which is just a hamster in a seal suit :-)... wait... that ISN'T a seal
Gordon: Those are actually High Velocity Running Shorts.
Chico: REALLY awkward.
Gordon: I think Cheeseball looks cute in his.
Jason: Oh boy
Chico: Gordon, get me out of this.
Gordon: Roll That Beautiful Brain Footage
Live, local, and latebreaking... From the four corners of the globe to your
frontal lobe, this is WLTI Brainvision News, and now here's Gordon Pepper, Chico
Alexander, and the award-winning Brainvision News Team)
Chico: And I got my Louisville Slugger in for the Business End. Here's your
Bevan, whose producation credits include Camouflage and Chain Reaction, is GSN's
new VP in charge of original programming.
Chico: He also worked on Ballbreakers (plus to us), Big Bucks, the PYL Scandal
(plus to them), and Extreme Dodgeball (plus to everyone).
Jason: Sounds like a guy who we l ike.
Gordon: Yep. Good luck, Michael!
Chico: Make us proud. Next?
Gordon: Next up...Who wants a date with Canadian Fashion Models?
Chico: Me! MEEEEE!
Gordon: What about...a date with Tila Tequila?
Jason: Uh no....
you can catch them both on October 8, when the shows premiere.
Gordon: By the Way, the Meet My Folks episodes on MyNetwork? Repeats.
Jason: And by the way...Jail is a repackage as well.
Chico: Not surprisingly.
Chico: As for Tila, yeah, I have things against people who have more girlfriends
than I ever had... or ever will :-D
Gordon: Meanwhile, one more date for you...
September 18, The Big Brother finale, where it's Donato Vs. Donato.
Chico: The most anticlimactic BB finale ever.
Gordon: I'm thrilled, to be honest.
Jason: You would be.
Gordon: The 2 people who have played the game best are in the finals. And I
think they are both cool. YAY!
Chico: I say a Donato wins it :)
Gordon: Yea - but which one? Big Board please?
Who Votes for Who?
- DICK: America's Player Eric
- DANIELE: Dustin, Jen, Amber, Jessica, Jameka, Zach
Gordon: The subject - Who
Votes For Who? Let's go in order....
Chico: Dustin...votes for Daniele.
Chico: Jen... also votes for Daniele.
Chico: Amber... also votes for Daniele.
Chico: Jessica... also votes for Daniele.
Jason: We have a winner then.
Chico: Eric... should America decide for him... votes for Dick.
Gordon: I agree.
Chico: Jameka... votes for Daniele.
Chico: Zach... also votes for Daniele... Sp 6-1 for Daniele.
Jason: Ok...why is Dick so hated?
Gordon: Lets see...he pretty much yelled at everyone in the house at one time or
Chico: Well... Basically... he's a rocker badass. And he flaunts it.
Gordon: It should be entertaining. And then everyone after that will get fully
Chico: And have I got stuff for you. Double-shot time.

Chico: Alex is in it. Clue Crew is in it. I got mine yesterday. Haven't played
it yet. Will.
Jason: Maybe they will make updated DVD's occassionally.
Chico: Let's hope. Gordon, you're a big fan of the Jeopardy!, right?
Gordon: I love my Jeopardy - even when its being played by Media Hoes.
Chico: *plays "Pimpin' All Over the World"*
Gordon: But before we do that, I love to play Jeopardy on my comfy red sofa. We
start with...car people.
Jason: I am a car person

Gordon: Now for the Hoes...
this week's Media Ho Report, Jeff Probst hints we may be seeing another Survivor
All-Stars, Josie Smith-Malave gets beaten up while they arrest at least one
Jason: And to that suspect...shame on you.
Now it turns out that Gordon Ramsay didn't REALLY cook his crown jewels and
it was a lie to cover up that he just had an 'ache'...
Chico: So sayeth the other Mrs. Ramsay.
Lacey Schwimmer and Hok Konishi from SYTYCD are allegedly dating, Bob Barker
head to Missouri for a Hall of Fame for Missourians...
Jason: Go Bob.
Chico: Nice bust.
Johnny Fairplay makes a baby with a Top Model contestan, while Alex Boylan
(Amazing Race), Chris Luca (Amazing Race) and Burton Roberts (Survivor) will go
around the world...
Chico: For free.
Gordon: And based on your votes. But none of them are your Ho of the Week. Let's
bring back Andy Baldwin into the picture. As you all know, Andy has not married
Tessa...and now we may know why.
Chico: Pictures with Andy getting awfully close to another woman.
Gordon: Apparently, The Bachelor series should have been retitled An Officer and
an Iranian, because Andy was spotted with Miss Iran 2005.
