  • What happens to T.V. Hosts?

    I see the current crop of guys / Jessie moving around from show to show, but wonder what happens that causes old car guys to just disappear?

    The latest example, Rick Bacon from Muscle Car - they never say why, like Lou Santiago for another example, is replaced and now Rick disappears with no comment.

    4x4 is another example, I know Jessie got hurt, then she's on MythBusters, now doing some other stuff, confuses the hell out of me.

    I hear you, I also think Sam Memmolo from two guys garage should have his own show. Lou Santiago was on another show but I havent seen it in a while.

      Probably the nature of the business.......maybe they think
      it's a good career change.
      Memmolo is on several programs isn't he?

        Memmolo had two guys and shade tree but he isnt on now,probably because hes not "cool" but hes good at what he does,I think he did a few product endorsements.

I want to have comentary from somebody who knows the subject and doesn't have to spin it,and himself,into something that he thinks is "way cool". Then theres the other guy......

              Jessie was on Mythbusters as a fill in when the other girl decided to grow some belly fruit

              now Jessie is hosting All Girls Garage - not a bad show either

              alot of them is contract disputes, creative freedom, go make more money elsewhere or just tired of the B.S. that goes into filming a tv show

                Every one of these hosts have their own websites. You may need to read between the lines; but for the most part, the answers are right in their bios.

                  Willie B - buahahahhahahaha -- holy hell. Yeah, that's a CLICK.. Oooh, the Food Channel is having a baked bean expo!

                  I've heard some things there, apparently he doesn't garner the respect from others that he has for himself.


                  Scott - I read their stuff, and the between the lines is inference on my part. I don't think they'll come out and say what the problem was, and I kind of respect them for that.

                  Dave and Sam doing the two guys garage was a LONG time ago, but I liked Dave. Sam is irritating, but they balanced each other out.

                  The new guy on Muscle Car last week says "When the carb opens up and you get vacuum, it changes the timing" - I was gonna let it go but then he said "When you get off the gas and the vacuum goes away" and I was reaching for the remote.

                  Ahh well, sad there's not a feedback mechanism that gets past the bean counters... product placement at it's best. Sigh.

                    progressive vacuum does go away throttle closed. not many american motors chose it..
                    my old sube has both..

                    I was thinking of the local news anchors that walked away on air locally. I wonder where they end up...
                    talk about a familiar routine for viewers..a daily anchor.

                    I was like that with jay leno, and carson.. I was even sad when carson was done. his type of silly and tv is no longer. I am more a jay leno in real life... nice to see dynamical.
                    the lady host in the car world. I don't have tv, but would watch if I did.

                      It is not smart to bad mouth your former employer in public if you want to continue working in the industry. It is pretty obvious that Jessi Coombs did not return to Extreme 4x4 after her injury. Whether she felt the producers put her in a dangerous situation that nearly got her killed or paralyzed is between them. The answer could be whether or not those producers are still making tv shows. If not, it could no one will work with them, or they are not insurable.

                      Mostly, the stories I hear to why a star of a show does not return is anything from wanting more money to just not happy about the work environment to wanting to grow as an artist.

                        I think they run out of gas and liquids start leaking from various parts of their body's. Maybe a little rust also.
                        OH YEAH

                            She had back problems, she could not lift anything or go out on the tails fearing she would hurt her back more. She is now on the "new" Overhauling with Foose.

                              best answer!

                              Jesse's deal I never looked up, I knew she got hurt - looked at her bio today:

                              In a widely publicized accident in 2007, while working on Xtreme 4x4, Jessi was folded in two by a large piece of machinery, burst fracturing her spine's L3.

                              YIKES.
