Battle of the Game Show Hosts: 4th Round

Welcome back! It feels like ages since the last duel. Do you want to know who won the last round? Do you even remember who was battling? No, it was not Ross Perot versus Al Gore. They aren't even game show hosts. It was Chuck Woolery versus Dick Clark. I thought this match would come down to the wire like the 1st round but it was a TKO by Chuck. Dick didn't have a fighting chance. The fact that Dick is part robot didn't help him this time.

This round should be a juicy one. It features two long time running hosts of respectable game shows. Instead of just duking it out like we have been doing, we were going to have the next contestants jell-o wrestle but one of them is allergic to Bill Cosby. Judge Mills Lane will be guest refereeing today. "Now, I want a good clean fight, let's get it on." "Thanks Milly. You don't like being called Milly? It sounds girly? It's your gam-gams name?" Let's get the next round going while I apologize to Mr. Lane.

It's now up to you folks. Cast your votes. I have advised both challengers to not accept bribes or candy. I on the other hand accept both, especially candy. Polls will close on Sunday at 11:59 PM. The first round of the semi finals will take place next Tuesday. I know I'm excited.

Gotta say Pat. Really liked his talk show back in the day. I know. I know, I'm probably the only one, but still.

Pat Sajak after all he works with the lovelly Vanna White.

Trebek. He has to put up with all the celebrity morons.

Alex! He's evil and sleeps in the price is right wheel when no one is looking. Plus I used to be able to predict the winner based on who I felt Alex liked. Fix! I just can't vote against that kind of evil.

Pat Tillett said...

My answer is "Who is Alex Trebek?"

I have to go with Pat Sajak for $400. I would kill to be on his show.

Sara said...

I had no idea that Trebek hosted Double Dare! My answer is going to have to be Trebek. I think he is the only "older" man that I think is kind of hot.

Mr. Stupid said...

Wow. You like candy too? I often take that as a bribe. It works every time.
Oh yeah, about the post, who are the two guys?
Anyways, using a quick Superpower, I would say Pat!

I like to be on the winning team. There are advantages to joining this game late. I was going to vote for Pat anyway, since he has personality. Alex still needs to buy one. Final answer: Pat.
