    Do any of us have a logical theory on who is going to win? I personally think Scott will because he keeps his mouth shut and is good to everyone. But lately he has been messin up with girls on the show.

    I actually think that DTKC should vote wassername, scott's fist hook-up back on. for strategy, mind you.
    She hasn't been evil to anyone and she would tear up the whole holly/scott/wasshername triangle.
    boom.

    Same here. I immediately thought Toni when I read that. Which is interesting considering that Andon, Alex, and Zack were all rude to him this week.

    Do you think Zach can read?

    Does anyone know what the article is referring to when they say Dave " was thrown out of Fenway Park for his bizarre antics?" His website says he increased Crunch & Much sales by 400%.

    My guess is he got in a verbal arguement with a player.

    (this article is from 1997)

    Coke is it for Fenway Vendor
    By Christine Walsh
    News Staff
    7/23/97
    This season, the main attraction in the Fenway Park bleachers has not been beachballs or the wave. It hasnít been the pitchers in the bullpen and, more often than not, it certainly hasnít been the game.

    When the Red Sox are losing and Roger Clemens isnít on the mound, what is it that makes the fans turn their heads, stand up and cheer?

    "Coca Cola!!"

    Dave Kerpen, the self-made vending sensation, sprints up and down the aisles, case of Coke in hands and screams at the top of his lungs: "Coke is it!"

    He sings. He dances. He signs autographs. And he sells lots of Coke.

    "Working at Fenway Park is a dream come true for so many people," the Boston University senior says. "Itís very weird because clearly right now if anything, Iím a pseudo-Boston celebrity. Iím not legitimate. Iím a vendor."

    Heís a vendor all right. One night last summer, he sold 360 cups of Coke. While working at the FleetCenter during the fall and winter, he quadrupled the sales of Crunch ín Munch.

    But Kerpen, an elementary education and psychology major, is also an entertainer well on his way to establishing legitimacy.

    Not many vendors have been featured in the Boston Herald, interviewed on SportsCenter and approa-ched by a publicist. Not many vendors have signed up to 120 autographs in a given night.

    Kerpen, 20, began his vending career at Fenway Park last June.

    "I wanted to work there really badly," Kerpen said. "I kept stopping by and asking if they had openings. They kept telling me no. Finally, they said yes."

    Since Fenwayís vendors are paid only on commission, Kerpen immediately had to pick his position: vendor or fan.

    "When I first started, I wanted to enjoy the game; some vendors watch a lot of the game," Kerpen said. "My first week I started, I had to make a decision whether I was going to sell or watch. It wasnít the easiest thing in the world because Iím such a big baseball fan. In the end, I figured this is a job, I have to make a living."

    So Kerpen took to the stands, and blocked out the game.

    "Last year I was loud," Kerpen said. "I was always loud, but I wasnít quite attempting to be an entertainer at that point. I made pretty good money."

    Kerpen liked vending so much that he decided to apply for a job at the FleetCenter during basketball and hockey seasons. He figures his experience at Fenway helped him get the job.

    While Fenway employs about 75 vendors per game, the FleetCenter averages only 14. Vendors get assigned the products they sell based on seniority.

    Kerpen was usually left with Crunch ín Munch, the least coveted product. Later it would become the secret to his success.

    "It wasnít going so well," he admits. "I was doing my thing loud. I started kind of adding things here and there, yelling weird things, singing and dancing."

    Soon, lines like "Crunch ín Munch rocks the world" and "Crunch ín Munch is delicious and nutricious" won over the crowd.

    "I kind of became the Crunch ín Munch guy," he said. "I guess publicity increased and they talked about me on the radio."

    Kerpenís knew his fame was real when he was featured in the Boston Herald in January.

    "People would come to the game expecting to see me and excited to see me," Kerpen said.

    The highlight of his vending career came about a month later, when Sports-Channel interviewed him and broadcast him nationally.

    "That was great," he said. "I finished off the season and I started again at Fenway very excited. I figured number one, I had this new perspective on how to sell, and number two, I knew that there would be recognition. It was totally true. I started off and everywhere I went I was ĎCrunch ín Munch Guy.í"

    Selling Cracker Jacks on cold nights and Coca-Cola on hot nights, Kerpen has had to adapt his act to Fenway.

    "It was a little bit frustrating with Coke," he explained. "I couldnít dance around as much, so I came up with the balancing on the head. I tried it and it worked."

    So far, Kerpen can stack three cups of Coke on his head, but he says, "Iím so close to four I can feel it."

    Success hasnít been all bliss for Kerpen, who says his voice suffers from all the screaming and his relationship with co-workers is less than amiable. Once, a jealous hot dog vendor threatened to hit him with his bin.

    "Basically, I distract people ... and perhaps thereís some jealousy," Kerpen said. "I get called a retard, stupid, a fool, embarrassing."

    But not by the fans.

    "When I feel it and I have a whole section going, when Iím balancing the Cokes on my head, itís really kind of thrilling," he said. "I think some of those old hot dog vendors really do believe Iím making a fool of myself. Iím confident enough to know I enjoy what Iím doing.

    "The bottom line is itís a performance," says Kerpen. "I wouldnít just walk down the street putting Cokes on my head. The task is to sell. I enjoy selling and I sell more by putting on a perfomance. I wouldnít do it if I didnít feel people enjoyed it."

    They do read the websites, at least Zach does. He said it in a radio interview someone linked(Z-Morning crew or something). Its funny too because he said he found a poll of how all these people wanted him back on the show after he was voted off

    They were trying to give him a hard time but he took it pretty well. It was just funny listening to him saying how he was misportrayed by the editing, then watching Wednesdays episode of him acting like a jackass again. The Editing Excuse only goes so far....
