Vote for your favorite and future hostgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
Robert's better! George Rules! Fred Flintstone should host the show! Will the JYWs presenter battle ever end? Now we can go vote on it at http://jyw.itgo.com Cast your vote then let's call it quits on the Robert vs. George issue. I don't think that debating this is going to change anyone's mind. You can also vote for a male presenter from nine choices or make your own suggestion. You can only vote once every two weeks, so don't be thinking about stuffing the ballot box! You can go back any time you like to check on the results.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Enough already about the "Presenter" vs. "Host" controversy

I love the show and think both hosts are great for their respective countries. What would be cool would be a UK vs US Superbowl show. Champions in the US would match champions from the UK.

I'm sorry, but ever since the new American host took over, I have not been able to watch the show. I thought I was lucky finding the "new" shows being shown on Monday nights but was sad to discover on this site that they were apparently the shows from the first season. I truly enjoy watching Robert and Cathy, and just Robert. But George and Cathy is unbearable. I hope Robert will be back and that the show will again use Britons rather than Americans. If America wants a show, get American hosts with American teams, in America and call it something else. It is not Junkyard Wars any other way. Thanks.

You're weird....get a life!

Hey Sarah, they did get an American show with an American host, and an American name. It's called Junkyard Wars, and the host is George. The british version is called Scrapheap Challenge with host Robert. Both versions have Cathy.

I hope it won't be too traumatic.....but...........Watch scrapheap and don't watch junkyard wars!!!

I think they should consider the Flatmo guy for host from Art Attack, he was really funny.
-- Mr. Sue (email@example.com), February 11, 2001.
Flatmo was great...but I found it a bit nauseating when Art Attacker June put on lip stick, pulled pantyhose out of her top and batted her eyelashs to get the large (and duh, phallic) rocket engine from the Long Brothers. Really, this portion of an otherwise good (except for any scene involving George) show was awful. Most of the Junkyard Wars fans I know are not boorish dolts - why do the producers assume we are?

They don't assume everyone is, Just a few of you.

My husband & I watch all the shows together, but the shows without Cathy lack something. She helps keep the show interesting when it begins to drag through parts of the construction.

Bring back Cathy Rogers!!!!!! She has a magical quality that brings life to the show.
