    Lie Guy II: The Inferior Sequel

    The original "Lie Guy", Nick Savastano, is gone and has been replaced by some wanna-be--with a tenth of the charm. Since I'm still annoyed by this poor choice (if Nick wanted money GIVE it to him), I thought I'd start a place to grumble about it.

    Give love to Nick, or reactions to the New Lie Guy, here.

    I miss Nick too. He always made me chuckle when they showed his reactions to the contestant's answers.

    It was funny when the new guy held his hand in the middle for a little and then went to a thumbs down.

    This thread makes me laugh, but I have to agree...it's just not the same without mischievous Nick giving out the lie detector tests. He just had this way of looking smug about the whole process. Bring him back!

    Think about it. Nick was already so emblamatic--so much the silent star of the show--that when they transitioned from the "Meet/Date/Sleep With My Folks/Kids/Mom/Dog/Whatever" shows into this one, our first sight of Nick was among that crowd of Nick look-alikes. They didn't just have a bunch of gruff looking Lie Guys... they had an indentification that Nick was a focal point of the show.

    I can imagine him asking for more money, but I can't imagine it would have broken the budget of this show. I mean geez... it's not like they spend a fortune on a "cast" (free, except Nick) a set (it's a rental) or prizes (isn't the ring for the woman about it--most likely paid for by a sponsor, and maybe a crappy vacation--definitely subsidized and paid for by a sponsor).

    Damn, thats why he wasn't there. You might want to add a link to that though. if its true that is sad news and hopefully he will be back for season 3, this new guy doesn't match up to him at all.

    Okay, I suppose I don't have to hate this version of the show then. I mean other than the fact that it's cheesy and Nick isn't there to steer it in acceptible cheesiness.

    I miss Nick too, and I hope he has a speedy recovery. He was definately the best part of these shows
    ps. This is just my opinion in the matter.
