    My thoughts exactly! When I first saw the promo for that show, I couldn't believe it. Have the people at Discovery lost their minds or gotten desperate? Maybe both. He is so annoying! And to think he's raking in the money.

    My most hated character is the new bushy haired nebbish on the Verizon commercials. I loved the old one and wish he wasn't replaced. This new one is too much.

    My vote goes to "lost their minds."

    I haven't seen him--around here we still have the old one.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Re: Most annoying commercial characters

    Okay, admittedly, I love Billy Mays. I do a mean imitation of him! All joking aside though, yes he rakes in the money-for shouting and selling stuff. OxiClean has made millions, same with OrangeGlo. He did a funny spot on Jay Leno where it was "Billy Mays for Billy Shakespeare".

    Here are mine:
    FreeCreditReport.Com
    Vince Offer-aka ShamWow ("it's made in Germany. The Germans always make good stuff")
    Burger King "Square Butts". I have to show my support to Sir Mix-a-Lot, who in "Baby Got Back" represented Seattle very well...but honestly, it's annoying.
    Snuggie
    Any of those "male enhancement" commercials-especially ExtaMax (featuring Dallas from Rock of Love), Enzyte, Levitra, Cialis, etc. The only good ones are some of the Viagra ones-there was a Canadian one that aired that was the best commercial I have ever seen.
    Flo the Progressive Insurance pitchwoman
    Bertolli
    Axe/TAG/Old Spice. I like how the new Nivea ads make fun of those commercials because "I don't use it to wash my body, I use it to attract the ladies".

    The male enhancement thing reminded me of one I can't stand! I don't want to do a search at work but it's the one with the idiotic grinning guy named Bob. For one thing, he has nothing to worry about on that subject because what woman in her right mind would want to be with him in the first place?!

    Yep, that's Enzyte, with "Smiling Bob". Many of the infomercials do not refer to it by its proper name, only "that certain part of the male anatomy" or "make you larger".

    Re: Most annoying commercial characters

    Has anyone seen the new Toyota commercials where the car drives thru a nature scene that is made up entirely of people? The river is people in blue walking, the field is people dessed in green swaying, the clouds are people in white moving randomly. I find it highly creepy, the message is supposed to be "people and nature in harmony" but to me it appears more like "you cannot go anywhere that people have not touched".

    Haven't seen that one, but here in Washington we have a lottery one called the "Match 4's" which is like a barbershop quartet. I was watching the Mariners game at the local bar with my mum today and they came on at least 5 times. I can only imagine being the bartender wanting to throw ice cubes at the TV.

    I think it is now a given that every character on a "male enhancement" commercial is annoying!!
