Infomercial Pitchmen: Billy Mays or ShamWOW Guy?


Billy Mays or the ShamWOW Guy?  Who do you love (or hate) the most in the Battle of the TV Informercial Pitchmen?

Billy Mays is one of the most successful pitchmen on TV today. The success of Billy Mays is amazing. One of the brands Billy pitches on TV is OrangeGlo. The OrangeGlo company credited Mays' salesmanship for much of the company's success. Mays has done TV commercials for ESPN ad has become a household name.

As Seen on TV website has all the Billy's commercials for your viewing pleasure. It's a huge hoot! The guy is laughing all the way to the bank.

But Billy Mays has competition. The pitchman for ShamWOW infomercials is gaining his own following!  In case you have been living under a rock or you only watch PBS, you'll know the ShamWOW TV commercials.

Who do you think is the King of the Infomercials? I've a Billy Mays fan but the ShamWow guy is coming up strong. Talk to me ladies!

The ShamWow guy's face distracts me, as it's obvious he has the headset on to detract from some issue going on with his eye and it being uneven.

Both of them are just loud and obnoxious... but after you watch the infomercial for something a billion times, you start wanting it either way, LOL.

SCAM-WOW! Both are obnoxious.


This is sooooo funny! Hubby and I have been joking about how Vince (the Sham-wow guy) is the next Billy Mays! LOL! Sure enough, last night I saw Vince selling the "slap-chopper"! "Call now because we can't do this all day!"  LOL! Both guys are obnoxious but Vince is much funnier to watch!

Billy Mays needs to stop screaming at me from my tv.  I have refused to buy products I was interested in simply because I can't stand him yelling all the time.  Tone it down, buddy!

They are both annoying, but somehow endearing as well.

I absolutely can not STAND Billy Mays' voice. Does he REALLY have to scream everything he is saying. Makes me want to boycott the products he's selling. The Sham-Wow guy is at least tolerable to me.

Billy Mays voice is sooooo obnoxious,loud,grating. I hit the MUTE button whenever his commercials are on. I have never seen the other guy. I really think Billy Mays has made me refuse to buy any of the products he yells about on TV.
