    Rick, Corey, and Chumlee will be playing for charity on the syndicated version of Millionaire this Tuesday. Check your local listings. :)

    I mentioned it in the other thread, but just in case:

    The spin-off show is now called "American Restoration", not "Rusty Nuts" as originally described.

    Episodes are now out there to set an SP for.

    I don't usually have the patience to sit through Millionaire, it feels to me like one or two categories of Jeopardy! spread out over 1/2 an hour.

    But the possibility of seeing Chumlee beating the other guys will be worth a watch.

    That square archway, 3 ceiling fans from the front of the picture, is where the showroom originally ended.

    The guys don't usually work weekends. They are out making appearances. This weekend they were at Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella, CA. And the Old Man only works mornings as the heat gets to him later in the day.

    Are you thinking of Chumley? Cory doesn't strike me as dumb.

    If you pay attention you see that Big Hoss is classically just below average intelligence while Chumlee is acting dumb and/or has moment of low brainpower.

    Chumlee's bobble-head body needs to be 350% larger.

    I watched them on Millionare. They did NOT do very well.

    And Chum-Lee I am guessing is 1000% smarter than Big Hoss. He was smart enough to realize that without playing a character, he wouldn't be a focus in the show. By playing a dim-wit, he gets plenty of airtime.

    I can't really fault them for missing that question, since I know nothing about Free Image Hosting either.

    I think Chumlee plays dumb and is smarter than Big Hoss. Maybe not. Neither will be joining Mensa anytime soon.

    6/6 episode: Big Hoss showed a 1st edition of a Hemingway book that RicK bought for $500 to a customer in a white polo shirt.

    The Hoss did'nt recognize the guy for who he was but his dad immediately did.

    Rick sold the book for a tidy profit.

    It was George Stephanopolous and Rick' profit was $175
