Meet Kelly and Travis, co-winners of the Host Hunt competition on My58. Faithful readers will know that I had a pick to click in this race, but I’m simply shocked, shocked that Travis pulled ahead of the pack.
For a taste of what you’re in for, check out Kelly and Travis as Phoebe and Joey announcing that MyTV has taken the bold step of airing “Friends.” See if you can get past the words “smelly cat,” I couldn’t. (I can’t link you to it, so if you think you have the stomach, visit Travis’s page and click on “Teaming Up: Travis And Kelly” in the video list.)
Lest you think this is a case of sour grapes, now click on “Teaming Up: Travis And Akiba” and tell me that Akiba doesn’t mop the floor with the poor sap. Or check out the “Art Event Challenge” where Travis has the genius idea of making the kids do all the talking or, if you have an hour to kill, watch his “Mall Challenge” video where he talks to a poor young woman, clearly smitten, for an eternity about MyNet’s “Fashion House.”
In all that he does, Travis bears the telltale “deer in the headlights” look of a man whose brain has the size and capacity of a deer. Also he seems slightly nervous. But he must have something all the other male contestants lacked–either a legion of strung-along girlfriends, compromising photos of My58 brass, or (from the looks of it) his fabulous index fingers have hypnotic powers.
