  • I think people trust Billy more. I know when I see him promoting something I believe what he says! I guess it's because of how great OxyClean worked for me! Gullible? maybe :o)

  • Vince Offer reminds me of a greasy Carny at the state fair. He makes my skin crawl. Billy ZMays makes my brain hurt when he I hate both.

  • I know he's aging and passing on his torch but I'm still partial to the Ronco guy. I had his glass cutter that turned soda bottles into glasses as a kid and I loved it!

  • It will take a lot to dethrone Billy Mays. I totally want his job. I can yell and gesture with my hands, but alas, I cannot grow a beard.

    The Shamwow guy won't make it. His hair is weird and he needs that microphone to project. His voice is not as deep or resonant as Billy Mays's.

  • i think that Billy Mays is the BEST
