Dick Gozinya: Monifa?
B.L.Z. Bub: The who and the what now?
the_cnidarian: Actors who moved to Hollywood and work as a bartender and a fitness instructor and happen to drive the same crappy minivan and use the same gas station for 2 years? Yep. Fake.
sweatybronson: They're in Los Angeles. Everyone in Los Angeles is an actor (or somehow involved in the movie business).Every single bartender and fitness trainer and barista and yoga instructor, etc., is an /actor or /director or /writer ...They don't like to mention this on TV shows, because then every damn person on every game show, and every 'man on the street' segment, would say 'I'm a blahblah in the movie business!'I was on Baggage (a dating game show hosted by Jerry Springer), and I only mentioned that I was in 'grad. school' and had previously worked as a 'summer camp counselor.'Nothing about the fact that I was going to grad. school for Screenwriting.Now, these folks may have faked their surprise over what was going on a bit - or faked that they didn't remember that they'd been on already - But there's a very easy way this isn't a plant...they use the same gas station, and these people probably, you know, use it a lot. They'd probably been to that gas station dozens or hundreds of times since the first video-thang happened...All of the 'it's the same car and the same clothes at the same location' makes it LESS likely to be a plant, not more.The smoking gun is like smoking - it's stupid.
5/13 UPDATE: In a TSG interview this afternoon, Monifa Sims contended that it was just a fluke that she appeared a second time on "Pumpcast News," adding that, "When it happened again, I said, 'I cannot believe it!'" Remarkably, the actress claimed that she and her husband never bothered to actually watch her first appearance on Leno's top-rated program. "I'm not glued to my TV at night," said Sims.[Sims's assertion that she had little interest in her initial appearance on the "Tonight Show"--which is watched by millions of viewers--is contradicted by a series of posts the actress made to her Facebook page. On the day the segment aired (March 31, 2011), Sims reminded friends, "Don't forget to check me out on Jay Leno tonight! Let the laughter begin!!!" Then, before the program aired on the West Coast, she wrote, "East Coast and Mid West Peeps: Did you catch me on Jay Leno!!???" In an April 1 post Sims exclaimed, "Jay Leno was HILARIOUS!"]Asked why no mention was made of her prior "Pumpcast News" appearance (or her and Will's acting careers), Sims said "Tonight Show" producers "don't want people to think that they planned this thing." She added, "We have been honest with them the whole time."Sims said that it was only after she and her husband did their karaoke tunes that Will realized that this was her second time around. Sims recalled, "He asked me, 'Is this what you did before?'""This really is a one-in-a-million chance," said Sims of appearing on Leno's show. Well, perhaps two in a million.
MrJesus: Hahahahahahahahahaa holy shiat you were on that show.So, tell me.. has there ever been a case where the contestant and the winner went ahead with keeping each other? Someone always gets dumped in every episode I regrettably saw. Also, the contestant and the gallery are always a total mismatch in attractiveness.

Someone always gets dumped in every episode I regrettably saw. Also, the contestant and the gallery are always a total mismatch in attractiveness.I actually won (I was the one bein' picked...) But winning wasn't much of a point of pride - one other guy was the 'guy with problems' (he was a recovering drug addict who lived in a halfway house), and the other guy was the 'goofy guy' (he dressed in duct-tape and danced the polka. The line that I dissed him with - "Like a cross between Dwight Schrute and Weird Al Yankovic" - was pretty spot-on).I accepted the date, which was the wise move - you accept the date, you get a 100 dollar gift card to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse...You deny the date, you get a free membership on Match.com.So, easy call.We didn't go out on an actual date (her prize was to get a 100 dollar gift card as well)... And I doubt most folks do. You get swept away to wardrobe, then sign, this do that, go down this hall, take a right, you're in the parking lot, goodbye person I just met on a gameshow who's not as attractive up close....Still need to use the gift card on my own damn self (I guess 100 bucks is about enough to cover one person. Really expensive restaurants confuse me).
