Best Man Challenge: Judges’ Bios

Introducing the panel of judges for the Best Man Challenge. These fine folks have dedicated their lives to rooting out the best best men around the coutry… and around the world!

Joanna Malott:
This is Joanna’s third time judging a Best Man Challenge. While she has been compared to Simon Cowell, she still is a very fair judge. In a best man, she looks for someone who is the perfect height, doesn’t lose things, plays well with others and is punctual. Her motto: May the best Best Man win.

Joanna’s interests include judging Best Man Challenges, shopping at Target, watching Grey’s Anatomy and making fun of anyone who has abnormally tiny hands.

Kevin Hockett:
Kevin marks his return to the United States Circuit of the Best Man Challenge after a 4 year stint in the Mexican League (a.k.a. El Desafío del Mejor Hombre) which was highlighted by his controversial selection of the masked luchador, El Gatito, for the Rodriguez-Goldstein Wedding.

When not judging best man competitions, Kevin can often be found hanging outside of convenience stores and trying to break into Judging Maid of Honor Challenges which he describes as “The Greatest Show on Earth, I mean really, some girls will do anything to be in a wedding party, let alone be the Maid of Honor. I can’t believe the things they’ll say and do to their best friends or siblings just to get the chance to be up there. Just think about what they’d do for a judge! Are you still recording this? Shut that off! I’ve got a reputation to keep you…….”

Carolyn Gunkel:
I am looking for the perfect guy to clean behind the refrigerator, wash the windows, and sweep out the garage. Wait . . . that’s my criteria for the Best Man Servant contest, not Best Man contest. Hmm. . . in that case, I will be fair and impartial in selecting whichever candidate makes me look the best. Impress me, boys!


Announcing Scott’s Best Man Challenge

Contestants have been notified, judges have been rounded up, and it’s time for the official announcement of Scott’s Best Man Challenge!

Scott’s Best Man Challenge is a game of cunning, strategy, wit, and brute strength that will determine who is Scott’s best man. Three contestants will challenge each other in a game to raise above mere groomsman status for the honor of best man. Contestants must prove themselves worthy to hold and protect the ring and hand it over at the correct time. They must demonstrate adeptness in toast giving (humorous, yet touching but not too long). The best man must also show financial responsibility in the collection of cash for the dollar dance. Many qualities make up a good best man and this contest will run contestants through the gauntlet and see which one of them comes out on top to receive the coveted honor performing as the best man.

Scott’s Best Man Challenge will be composed of many separate smaller challenges tailored to bring out the qualities of a prime best man. Some of these challenges have yet to be determined. That’s where you come in, Oh valued internet readers. Let us know what you think would make a good best man. What would be a good test to determine whether our three contestants will stand up to the pressures that being a best man carries? Please comment and let us know… is it trivia? Feats of strength? Culinary skills? Anything! We want your input on how this challenge should proceed!

Keep an eye on this space in the near future as we announce contestants bios, judges bios and to watch the challenge unfold.
