new host proposal : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

How about Steve Irwin the "crocodile hunter"?

He's certainly colorful enough to be a replacement host for Robert.

Just picture it...

"crikey! that thing looks reaaaallly dangerous... lets try it out"

"look at that, it tore my left arm clean off...lets see if we can finetune it a bit"

"this thing could be lethal if mishandled, ill just stick my head inside and have a look about"

How about Bob Sagit and they could call it "America's Funniest Junk Yard War" ?

This is the damn funniest thing I've read in a long time. Steve would be absolutely great. Thanks for the laugh -- I've been much too serious about this whole thing.

Sorry, but the croc hunters voice is extremely annoying to me. I would have to stop watching JW for real if he were the host.

I had lunch with one of the producers, well before they cast George. I said I loved Robert, but I speak British, and even get most of the jokes. (15 years as a change ringer, and 6 years of working for british owned and 5 with british divisioned companies will do that to you), so I wasn't the best to ask.

If they had to find someone new, I suggested Click and Clack (aka the tappet brothers, or Tom and Ray Magalozzi) the hosts of the NPR "Car Talk" show. They have the right sarcastic tone, and unlike any of the existing hosts, as mechanical engineers, and auto mechanics, they would actually understand whats going on. Yea, they have faces for radio, but so do many of the contestants...

What is a change ringer?

I think your suggestions for hosts would've been better than George.

Change ringing is how the british ring their church bells. A cross between group theory and music. Great exercise for the brain, arms, and especially elbows. the US guild A gentle introduction can be found in the Dorothy Sayers novel "The Nine Tailors"

How about Bowser from the UK show? Or the head Brother from Brothers in Arms?

How about Charles Key he was a former Oklahoma State representative. He investigated the Oklahoma Bombing cover up and was ousted from the Oklahoma Legislature after a 12 year tenure because the Justice Dept and Local officials did not like him uncovering the mishaps of the bombing investigation. He has great stories and good connections for talk show guests. 405-951-5900
