    Among other things, he does a blue collar/redneck comedy tour with Jeff Foxworthy, Ron White, and Larry the Cable Guy. I always thought he and Jeff Foxworthy looked a little bit alike. I think he also starred in a sitcom, but I don't know the name of it.

    Why didn't they get Foxworthy instead? Even I know who he is.

    Really? Aside from the fact that they are men, I don't think they look alike at all.

    All of that blue collar comedy stuff is SO unfunny to me. Maybe it was funny 10+ years ago, but it's so tired now.

    I predict he'll go out pretty early. I doubt he's got much coordination and he's paired with a newbie pro so he can't sail through the first few rounds on the popularity of his partner.
