There's only one right answer and it involves someone who has a meme involving semen on his face and a lovely lady from Giant Bomb's past that has nothing to do with <>.

Executable.

Ha, Leigh Alexander.

#9 Posted by Olqavtoras (221 posts) -

Will & Carrie. The idea of Will vs. Norm in the next round is so awesome!

#10 Posted by RazielCuts (2931 posts) -

All these pairings are so obvious to what the outcome will be.

#11 Posted by FLStyle (4580 posts) -
  • Jared is currently Community Manager at Twitch.tv for the record
  • I presume Leigh's writing is a lot better than her behaviour when drunk

Voted Will and Carrie, the female choice was much easier than the male choice.

#12 Posted by Winternet (8006 posts) -

@FLStyle: @Kidavenger: Thanks, I'm changing it. I misread in his blog.

#13 Edited by PhantomGardener (455 posts) -

Only one of these I've heard of or seen is Will. Think I saw Jared in one QL, and he seemed annoying as hell.

This. Jared Rea is a pretty cool dude but Will Smith and Carrie Gouskos are awesome.

#15 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

I think Jared's great, but man was he sent out to die in this round.

Doesn't stand a chance against the Fresh Prince.

#16 Posted by FLStyle (4580 posts) -

@Winternet: No problem, I just assumed that you put the Sony job because it seemed like his most notable role.

#17 Posted by Mesoian (1572 posts) -

God, why is Leigh Alexander even in the running on this? Her involvement with anything giant bomb related has been a god damn travesty.

#18 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4676 posts) -

I know we all like Will Smith but Jared is great as well. He is one of my favorite guests, it is unfortunate he has zero change of winning.

That's why though. Her shame is our gain.

Man, not even. She was so bad, that one is still the only bombcast I've never been able to sit all the way through.

Drunk belligerent women are the worst.

I wonder what the odds are of her ever being on the E3 'cast again, or any Bombcast for that matter. Boy, would I love to to have been a fly on the wall for conversations about her among the Bomb crew.

A car crash involving Nazi Uniforms and asking for more sex in Resident Evil games. 775 Million. <>. In retrospect, those episodes are probably more embarrassing for her than they are annoying for us.

Still though, gotta give it to the Fresh Prince and that one lady who worked on the Warhammer.

#25 Posted by Ben_H (3311 posts) -

Most one-sided poll ever. The only way it could be more one-sided is if there was an option for two Vinnies.

@ArbitraryWater:

Don't forget how amazingly deep MGS 4 is and that it doesn't get its recognition that it deserves. It's also the personal story about Kojima himself which only the mastermind of Leigh could figure out.

Oh, that's totally right. She totally said that Kojima is Old Snake. Man. I should really listen to that bombcast again. It's like watching a pileup on the freeway as she alienates more and more people throughout the episode, including the listener. And then Paul Barnett says that the Wii is a Breadmaker, iirc.

I don't know why people are complaining, the Leigh Alexander episodes are the funnest episodes. She has like, one beer and she gets crazy.

#29 Posted by XtremePudim (86 posts) -

I think the Fresh Prince is awesome, but I voted for Jared, because the conversations his appearances prompted on the Giant Bombcast led me to knowing the entire history of the Tekken franchise, having never played a single round of Tekken in my entire life. And for that i salute you Jared Rae

Could someone provide a link? I would listen to that.

Will and Carrie, easy. Carrie is/was the coolest female I never knew and Will's self-depricating humor always gets me.

I don't remember the Bombcasts with Rea, I'm sure he's a cool guy, he was kinda annoying on that TNT though.

I hold no animosity towards Alexander.

How is Leigh NOT winning

#34 Posted by DonChipotle (2693 posts) -

I support Will and Leigh

#35 Posted by Redbullet685 (6025 posts) -

I love Will Smith but I don't like Leigh Alexander so I went with B.

#36 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10479 posts) -

Always gotta go with the Fresh Prince.

#37 Posted by MegaMetaTurtle (414 posts) -

Went to watch one of Leighs E3 appearances. Totally forgot how much of a car crash it was...

*Falls out of dress live on the Internet*

'Can you edit that out please?'

Will and Carrie, of course!

Will and Carrie, all the way!

#41 Posted by DrJota (700 posts) -

Between TV's Will Smith and Mr. Muir I think the representation of beards in this tourney will be sufficient.I approve!

#42 Posted by Dethfish (3627 posts) -

I really like Jared but he just can't compete with Will Smith.

#43 Posted by NickL (2246 posts) -

Who is voting for Leigh Alexander? Can't we just forget about her yet?

Yeah, "Michael Cera is... Halo!" is one of the best moments of the Bombcast.
#45 Posted by Kierkegaard (579 posts) -

I voted for Jared and Leigh, man. I like Will Smith well enough, and he and Carrie certainly have contributed more, but Leigh writes some awesome shit and made those bombcasts fuckin fascinating (sometimes in a cringy way), while Jared does awesome shit and all of his appearances are fantastic. Will was so integral that his stuff kinda mellowed for me. Carrie is a cool person, but she hasn't added anything terribly notable to the Bomb.

Plus, this poll is just fun anyways, so I figured I'd shake the expectations, at least half a percentage point.

#46 Posted by Ventilaator (1501 posts) -

Even if you don't like anyone else on this list, giving Leigh a vote is still the wrong answer.

#47 Posted by Y2Ken (1071 posts) -

I like Jared a whole huge bunch, but I CANNOT vote against William Smith. I actually don't have a huge problem with Leigh, she can get a little much but I like some of the things she says. Nonetheless Carrie wins that one pretty comfortably for me too.

#48 Posted by Drebin_893 (2902 posts) -

Will and Carrie.

#49 Posted by SuperSambo (2853 posts) -

After seeing a picture of Jared, who would vote for him?

#50 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1233 posts) -

Leigh sucks. Will Smith and Carrie all the way.
