As a general rule, if anyone connected to a member of the show has a great idea we can use on-air, we stop them mid-sentence. If their idea is that good, then they have to pitch it to all five cast members…on-air.

We’ve got the first photo up – let the bidding begin!
“Please help me support the Atlanta Santa Speedo Run! This year’s speedo-wearing runners will be braving the elements to benefit Bert’s Big Adventure; a non-profit organization that my wife and I started that allows us to escort Atlanta-area children with terminal and chronic illnesses and their families to Walt Disney World® for a magic-filled, all-expenses-paid trip of a lifetime.”
“How can I ask all 250 runners to raise money, slip on a speedo with very little other clothing and run in winter weather if I’m not willing to make some kind of sacrifice, as well? Here’s the problem. I have a family commitment I can’t get out of. So my wife told me that I have to….I mean…I am volunteering to bare it all for charity. Here’s where you come in. You can participate by donating to my Atlanta Santa Speedo Run page. The more you donate, the more I strip down!”
