There’s no shortage of reality TV reruns on the boob tube, and I’m a lil’ ashamed to admit the multi-show marathons always send me into a state of five-hour couch paralysis. The other day, I sat down to watch cycle 8 of America’s Next Top Model for like the fourth time (team Natasha, yo!) when it hit me: Jay Manuel bears a striking resemblance to America’s Best Dance Crew host Mario Lopez (of Saved by the Bell fame).
You know you can’t deny the resemblance.
This got me thinking: which half of this dynamic, separated-at-birth duo would I rather share a cup of coffee with? Jay or Mario?
At first, I thought Jay Manuel would be the obvious choice because I could pump him for makeup tips, and perhaps he’d even give me a good dose of the tough love (’cause I need tough love) that he’s famous for dishing out to ANTM’s contestants.
But then I considered the advantages of java with Mario. While I never hung Tiger Beat magazine pictures of him in my locker back in the Saved by the Bell days, I can acknowledge that he isn’t aesthetically displeasing. I wouldn’t go out to coffee with him just to stare, though. I’d tell him how square he sounds when he says the words “master mix” on America’s Best Dance Crew. Dang, boy! You so cheesy!
Whom would you rather kick it with on your coffee break? Would you ask Jay Manuel for makeup tips or swoon over Mario Lopez? YOU MUST CHOOSE!
