My money’s on Thicke.


Hard to make a prediction, because the “it’s cool to be dumb” factor is going to have people tanking left and right. Wait, there’s probably money involved if they win. Hmm, that’ll be a dilemma for many of them.

Alice Cooper is pretty intelligent. He might do well.

They seem to be taking it pretty seriously. They all look really sheepish and intimidated in that queue, especially when they botch up. Except Jay Thomas. He looked like he was getting a little fed up.

Did Alice win?

Did they ask him how to spell Milwaukee?

"Mr. Cooper for the win, spell “choggle.” That’s “choggle.”
