Yeah, the hair does James no favors at all. It's like what wardrobe does to the hot actor who has to play the geek in the movie until he makes the amazing transformation to stud.
Drew's beard makes him look older, but I realized the main problem with his look is his hair. That floppy, center parted 'do is...something.
Other than making people stand 15 apart at the wheel (seriously, do you board a courtesy shuttle when it's you turn?) I think the game play was fine. The show does suffer some from a lack audience, but not like LMAD where they're basically on screen the whole show. My biggest problem with that was that there were only two people who didn't get to make a deal. I always felt a little bad for people who bothered to dress up, trot out to the studio and sit squeezed in like a sardine for over an hour only to not get called on. It seems even more insulting when you're one of 12 to get passed over.
