February 21, 2005

Chico:  Yes. Well, as a Canes fan... No. What I'm especially irked at is now that there aren't any Canes games, there are more State games. Ick.
Gordon: I'm a NJ fan. It would have been nice to see another run at the Playoffs. Jason, however is a Rangers fan, so he is spared the agony of another sucky, overpaid team.
Jason:  Thank you. I feel honored that Bettman and Co. decided to spare me.
Chico:  With that, we move onto part 1 of play time... Last week, we went from 100,000 to 24. Here, we sample a few of the better of the 24 in a segment called... Who's Your Daddy. Gordon, if you would explain, please.
Gordon: It's real simple. I will be giving you a list of American Idol singers. You will list them as to who is the best. Any questions?
Jason:  None.
Gordon: OK - First singer - Nadia Turner.
Chico:  She's what you call in this segment... nucleic. A focal point, if you will.
Gordon: Great voice, great personality. She's a threat.
Jason:  I don't want to speak of some I don't know.
Chico:  I liked Nadia a lot.
Gordon: OK - Next up...Mario Vasquez.
Jason:  A huge threat. He will be in the top 5 in the men.
Chico:  An early favorite. He could easily be in the top five PERIOD.  Simply put, Mario = Nadia's daddy.
Jason:  Agreed.
Gordon: Agreed. Let's stick Mario on top of Nadia.
Joe:    NEXT!
Chico:  Mario on top of Nadia... That sounds SO wrong.
Joe:    ROFL. Why, is Mario gay? ;P(ducks)

Mario Vasquez
Nadia Turner


Gordon: Next  - Mikalah Gordon, she's spunky, and she reminds me of the next Diana DeGarmo.
Joe:    Blaaaaaah.
Chico:  Except her cheeriness is justified. While Diana is just cheery for the sake of cheery.
Jason:  Spunky is good--her talent is ok.
Chico:  But cheery is still cheery. She's under Nadia on the totem of talent.
Jason:  Yes under.

Mario Vasquez
Nadia Turner
Mikalah Gordon


Joe:    NEXT!
Chico:  But she's cute, though.
Gordon: Next -  Constantine Maroulis - the hard rocker from NYC.
Jason:  You will need someone to balance the pop aspect. He will get to the top 10 --fade about 7 or so in.
Chico:  This one's a hard call. We have someone who plays on his strengths and is different. But is he better than the rest? Better than Mikalah, at least.
Gordon: Mario, Nadia, Constantine, Mikalah?
Chico:  Between Mikalah and Nadia, but that's my personal opinion. Yours may vary.
Gordon: Seems right to me.

Mario Vasquez
Nadia Turner
Constantine Maroulis
Mikalah Gordon


Gordon: Next up - Carrie Underwood. She is Simon's pick to win the whole thing, and she is a bastion of country music. Is she your pick?
Jason:  Nope. Because there is one purer voice out there. You haven't mentioned that person yet.
Joe:    NOOOOOOT!
Chico:  As you said once before... IF YOU CAN'T EVEN LEARN A FEW LYRICS, YOU SHOULDN'T EVEN BE ON THE FREAKING STAGE.
Joe:    Something tells me Jason and I aren't picking the same person. Chico's got the idea.
Chico:  I got more than an idea :)
Joe:    If you don't have the lyrics, you get the boot.
Gordon: I actually think she's a sleeper who is going to get very far in this - maybe even top 12.
Chico:  she's like Carmen Rasmussen.. only she sounds bearable.  I say over Nadia, but not by much.  But if she can't remember her words... That'll be the end of her.

Mario Vasquez
Carrie Underwood
Nadia Turner
Constantine Maroulis
Mikalah Gordon


Gordon: Next -
Joe:    NEXT!
Gordon: Anthony Fedorov  - he has a tracheotomy - and he's the only white male pop person really profiled. How far does he get?
Joe:    Top 12 at least.  Anyone with a voice like AFTER a tracheotomy is a badass.
Jason:  Not very...  He doesn't have the personality to get him far enough. Reminds me of John Stevens.
Chico:  He looks like Justin Timberlake (five years ago), and sounds like Clay Aiken. But still shaky. So right after Constantine?
Gordon: I think this kid has potential. I'd put him in the very dangerous category with Mario.
Joe:    Except that Timberlake is a TimberSHMUCK.

Chico:  Nice compensatory damage there.
Gordon: Next...Amanda Avila!
Joe:    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Gordon: What rules Idol - looks or talent?
Chico:  Looks hot, sounds hot... Above Carrie.
Joe:    She Mario's Mommy.
Chico:  See, when you have both, it's just ... yeah.
Gordon: Unanimous, apparently.
Joe:    Yep.

Gordon: For the men next - David Brown, the gospel singer in the South. Can he carry his faith to win?
Chico:  I think so. He's got some pipes, too. Put him with Mario and Amanda.
Gordon: He's very good.
Jason:  Definite maybe.
Chico:  K.

Joe:    NEXT!
Gordon: ok. #9....
Chico:  I'm guessing this is your pick for final 12.
Gordon: Not necessarily =) Janay Castine - her mommy wants her to be the next Idol - do you?
Joe:    No. lol
Chico:  Umm... Not too much of a personality, so I can't really like her that much. Put her below Mikalah.
Gordon: I have to agree. She's good. Everyone else is better.

Gordon: #10....Anwar Robinson. He can dance, he can sing. Can he win the whole thing?
Jason:  Yes.
Chico:  Possibly... yes. Above Amanda.
Jason:  He is my pick to win it all.
Joe:    BOOOOOOOOOOO! lol
Gordon: We have dissension in the ranks.
Chico:  Just so I could hear that reaction.
Joe:    ROFLMAO
Jason:  He is the best voice and pure talent out there. And he has that "it"; that I think no one there has.
Chico:  And he's really a big musical talent.
Gordon: I think he's good. I think Mario is better, actually, but we'll get the consensus....
Joe:    Blaaah.
Jason:  ok
Chico:  Damn.. this is a good top 12 right here... You listening, America?!

Gordon: #11....Fantasia Barrino. How does this year's crop compare to last year's winner?
Chico:  The spoiler? =p
Joe:    Very well.
Jason:  She would not win this year. Period.
Chico:  I'd have to say so. Not bad, but some of this year's talent could make her seem irrelevant.
Joe:    Definitely not.
Joe:    She would get rolled like a slab of cookie dough.
Gordon: I agree - but where would you put her?
Chico:  Below Carrie. Because Nadia's forgettable.
Gordon: I would put her below Nadia.
Jason:  Above Mikalah--cant stand her.

Gordon: And finally, #12: William Hung.
Chico: WHAT?!
Gordon: Just kidding. Finally, we have the Idol from two years ago, Ruben Studdard.
Joe:    Hmmmmm...
Jason:  Put Ruben at the top, but lets see if the cast can prove themselves.
Chico:  Nah. Anwar would give Ruben a run for his money, as would David, Mario, and Amanda.
Joe:    I'll go with Chico's analysis.
Gordon: I think Ruben would have done well. I think this time, though, his lack of diversity would have been his undoing. I also think that Clay would place higher than him.
Joe:    Yep.
Jason:  Did you all see the overreaction of one of the women this week?
Chico:  Which one would that be? That could be anyone!

Jason:  Oh well.
Gordon: I believe you are looking for Faith Gatewood
Jason:  That's out 12.
Chico:  I think you were referring to Aa'shia Jackson?
Joe:    No.
Jason:  The one who Ryan consoled on the Wednesday show.
Gordon: The one that Ryan had to console as she ran out of the hotel is Faith.
Chico:  Oh... yeah, Faith, I believe.
Jason:  That leads to another question...is the top 24 the best 24?
Gordon: Ever? I think so.
Gordon: They certainly had the toughest requirements from all of them.
Chico:  If only because it's top heavy in talent, yeah, but I want to hear what the public thinks and yes, this is a plea for mail.
Joe:    I'll leave this one for you guys.
Gordon: Mail us your opinions on this at
wlti@gameshownewsnet.com
Jason:  Send us mail.
Chico:  Next up on the big program, some harsh truths about the Jeopardy! Ultimate Tournament. Accuracy or Idiocy? Find out when we return.
