    Sorry, my faux cousin, Marisa, isn’t getting a vote. I’ll go one vote for Stephanie Lum. Second vote goes to no_chance’s faux cousin, Tasha Kobashigawa, and my last vote goes to none other than weather man Ben Gutierrez who looks like he’s always sweating.

    Saw Trini at Kakaako Kitchen in Ward and almost didn’t recognize her without the heavy makeup.

    Saw Cindy Paliracio at Starbucks by Circuit City and she looked the same as on camera.

    In off-line talks, everyone got a lot to say about this topic. Everyone has stories to tell, so feel free to post anonymously shallow comments. What’s this about how Stephanie Lum is in person? The real Kim G. and Guy H.? The accomplishments of Reid Shimizu. The legs of Tasha K.? The appeal of newcomer Dave Erickson.

    Don’t be shy, vote/post away. You’ll feel better!

    Tasha Kobashigawa is leaving the biz to pursue her piloting career. Actually, I think she is pissed off that she is not #1 on this list.

    OK, we were the ones with the sideline comments. First, let me cast my vote for Joanne Shin and another vote for Dave Erickson since I was advised to properly document my comments.

    You have to admit though that Reid Shimizu has come far since he frist started and looked like he was wearing his Dad’s suit, at least he can make keep up the banter with Diane Ako. He gets my vote for most improved.

    Stan says that there are a lot of uninformed people out there. Tasha left the station mainly because of a situation stemming from her time in Thailand covering the tsunami disaster. She has a boyfriend(fireman) so she’s happy. A very nice person beyond her good looks….

    Jerry and Anon, thanks for the recent comments and insights. Sorry to say that I closed this poll awhile back. The results can be seen here.

    Also, if you want to see poor footage of Tasha Kobashigawa’s last night on TV, I have that available.
