The svelt body type may throw you a bit, but that voice and neatly parted auburn quaff is undeniable ..that swash-buckling son-of-a-bitch putting the moves on Vanna White and making David from Chicago uncomfortable about revealing his sexual preference to a national television audience is none other than CBS College Football studio host and Finebaum caller-instigator Tim Brando. Sadly, this audition, and probably the palpable sexual chemistry between the host and the letter turner lady, did not merit Timmy B with the full time gig on “The Wheel”. Day time game show’s loss is Spencer Tillman’s friendly mid-show banter’s gain.
Had Brando somehow landed the job over the very Canadian Pat Sajak, we might have seen a little more of this sports caster jumping over and trying his or her hand at the game show circuit thing. Below are just a few of the possibilities.
Verne Lundquist/This is Your Life
“In your life have you ever…oh, well yeah, I guess you have.”
Brent Musberger/Card Sharks
Brent finally getting paid to openly gamble.
Chris Berman/The Newlywed Game
Just making newly married couples uncomfortable one leather reference at a time.
Gus Johnson/Press Your Luck
Imagine Gus calling this.
He has all of the answers, just ask him.
John Gruden/The Dating Game
Constantly refers to Bachelor #1 as “This Guy”
John Madden/Win, Lose, or Draw
His drawing skills on the telestrator qualify him for such a job.
Rob Parker/Hip Hop Holdem’
