Who's actually calling in their votes for this thing?

None of the contestants, despite having other qualities, seems to be very good at cutting a promo, and certainly not at improvising.

Carmella, who seems to be the fan favorite, couldn't appear less enthusiastic about the whole thing. I can see her winning, and then quitting soon after. She doesn't really seem into it.

Aside from the obvious ways in which this contest has detracted from WWE programming already, now we have a bogus dodgeball game scheduled for SummerSlam, which serves to erase whatever tenuous semblance of story line the ladies had going, will provide little more than a bathroom break for wrestling fans...so, aside from all that, does anyone else see this thing blowing up in Vince's face? The XFL of T&A?

There is one major difference between the DivaCrapFest and the XFL: AT least the XFL pulled around a double digit network rating on its first night. Thus, it at least had one shining moment, which is five more than the DivaCrapFest will ever attain.



Still pondering why there was no public backlash for Jimmy Hart's advocation of self canibalism on the first Wrestling Album.

Only WWE could take the act of looking at hot women and make it suck as badly as the Diva Search sucks.

They could all wrestle each other naked and still get booed by the crowd I bet. And, I was prolly the only one who kinda LIKED the XFL. I mean, I know the talent sucked, but I just got a kick out of the whole thing. Even though it did suck, it provided one Laugh Out Loud moment for me.

There was this promo with the cheerleaders about watching one of the games that week. It went something like "The first week, 10 million people watched us. Unfortunately, not many came back..." I think it was one of those "Had to be there" moments, but it made me laugh for a while.

And I still got some Las Vegas Outlaws shirts and practice shorts lying around.

Being the gay little fox that I am, I couldn't really give much of anything about these (now) 7 morons making complete idiots of themselves, but if I'd bother to vote, Tracie would be winning me over with the thought that whereas all the other girls are missing the entire six-pack, she's picked up at least one beer. Still, seeing as it's all fixed, what's the point of wasting all this time instead of just building Carmella up some other way?

And I can appreciate the lovely irony of the music guys playing "Walk Idiot Walk" when it's time for the vapid wannabes to gyrate on stage to the excitement of nobody over the age of 14.

I'm still astonished that they stuck ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate syrup in front of these idiots, and only ONE of them thought to completely cover herself in the stuff. Cheap heat indeed.

And Carmella's from Cleveland, so sayeth my June issue of Playboy-which would explain the ovation she got tonight for doing absolutely nothing (which, in fairness, she does better than anyone else up there).

You ever notice that the crowd is always hotter after the Diva Search? Maybe it's because they're always sitting on their hands waiting for the segment to end, or going to get nachos.

Just remember...it can't last forever, right?

I would love it if the Dodgeball game wasn't worked and the real Divas would just go to town on the wannabes.

I also don't get the Carmella fascination. She is WAY too skinny.

Oh, you know at least one of the girls is going to get a nose broken by Jazz. Even better would be if they were dumb enough to have it in the ring, and an errant rebound finds its way into the hands of a fan at ringside.

My question is what is supposed to come out of this "Diva Search"? Will the winner just get the $$$ and go home? Or are they signed to be a part of WWE? Or what?

Plus, as bad as this thing is you cannot really blame the chicks. I mean hell, if you heard that a company was going to give out 250K just for looking good wouldn't you sign up? I mean, its not like WWE is looking for chicks that are WWE or wrestling fans. Would help if they were.

Also guilty. I think I'd be more inclined to do so again if I could vote one of them OFF. Somebody a while back (Shapiro?) said the redhead must die, and I'm inclined to agree. While I can't actually arrange that, screwing her out of $250,000 would bring a smile to my face.

Carmella is not even willing to subject herself to going along with the weekly tasks. You'd think that if I can see this, it's also as obvious to the WWE. And I don't care what she looks like - if she's not willing to do any of THIS stuff, what makes WWE or anyone else think she'll agree to do any other Diva-related skits?

I actually think Christy (the redhead) fits the Diva role best, since she sticks out, is willing to do anything & everything, she doesn't just stand there like a fool when she's not saying or doing something. She's annoying as hell, but she has personality, which five of the others don't.

Tracie is good also. The rest are all dime-a-dozen models.

And just a sidenote, I read this (http://www.lordsofpain.net/news/2004_/articles/1092157589.php) and have to wonder what the hell's going on. Jeff Garcia, QB of the Cleveland Browns and formerly of the 49ers, is allegedly Carmella's boyfriend. That's interesting, considering he was well-known in the community to be gay when he played for the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL. I guess I missed something there, but either way, I won't mind the Diva competition as much once Carmella is out.

I just realized the only way this Diva Search will end up awesome is if the WWE steals a page from Spike TV's best show, Joe Schmoe, and swerves the girls.

You almost made me do a spittake with that. Too funny!

Actually, it is all part of the allure of the Browns. "Come be our starting QB, date the Playmate of the Year!" (See Couch, Tim and Kosar, Heather.)

Why is the PMOY in the running here anyway? I would almost think she would consider it to be "lowering herself" to do something like this.

She's definitely not hiding that feeling. It's embarrassing to watch.
