You're talking about John Crow, right?

He does seem like he's drinking a lot of coffee before the show. 

I kinda laughed when he added "drumroll, please" before the 5th white ball.

Anyone know what happened to Glen Burns?

Yeah, I think it's one thing to be enthusiastic but delivering the amount, how he did even for the base jackpot is just silly and he delivers it the same way almost every time and at least to me seems completely fake. I doubt he's doing it that way because someone's telling him to, if that were the case then the other hosts would do the same thing. I watched a few videos of when Glen Burns was doing it and he was a lot better and didn't have any, thinking about now, can't even call it enthusiasm, more like false astonishment when it was low. Glen Burns delivered it much better and didn't do that, every... Single..... Drawing... At least from the ones I looked at. John Crow almost delivers it the same way whether it's 12M, 120 million or 270 million.

Just an example from last month on the 25th when it went back down to 12M.

Courtney Kasen or whatever her name is from last month, a bit hard to understand when she says her name but still no fake astonishment in her delivery or whatever you want to call it.

Glen Burns from last year when it was at its 12M base.

    You got to be kidding me. Dude, there's nothing wrong with the way he talks. He's a game show host. He's supposed to enthusiastic. Hey, I got an idea. Why don't you write to Mega Millions complaining about how the guy talks. Maybe he'll get fired. That's right, take away his livelihood. The way this guy talks is such a serious matter!

      Delivery of a jackpot amount =/= how someone talks.

       

      His livelihood as you put it, is the result of a talent search, finding how he mentions a jackpot annoying doesn't equal wishing he lost his job, now calm down and go back to working on that lottery system that you felt was on the verge of hitting a jackpot almost a year ago.Roll Eyes

        It's a system in the making. I only have to win a jackpot once. Any more than that is just a bonus.

          And if you win, I'll be the first on here to congratulate you if you reveal it here... Well probably not first but I'll congratulate you all the same.

            Bueller?..............Bueller?.....................Bueller?..............................

            lol I don't have live feed here. If I want to see the recording, I go to the mega millions website and view.  I wouldn't  don't mind his voice.  He's just trying to pump up the players! Hell!........Give me the money..PLEASE!! 

            When he's excided...I'm excided.  If I had live feed here, I'd be standing on my hand me down couch with the shredded  kitty claw marks down the sides saying "Come on baby!  Show mama what she wants to see..show me the MONEY!!!!!!!!!"  Only of course...............not to win a penny.......as usual. lol

             

            Whats up with the 125M winner from N.J? We have another anonymous ya think?  I agree its smart..but I live vicariously through the winners stories......and I'm getting let down here lol.

            Surrender You can run, but you can't hide mighty Jackpot...surrender to me at once!

                I like him.  Love the way he says "play on Georgia."  Fresh face and very peppy.

                love to nibble those micey feet.

                  yea. This is want I want. I want someone to hit Mega Millions jackpot and give money to fix the roads. There alot of dirt roads in Detroit areas. It bad for cars. Sterling Heights roads are bad too. Let just get them fixed.

                  Why would anyone do that? Detroit has proven that it can't even remove a very corrupt mayor and has the most hostile attitude towards small business that would actually employ people. Not to mention the out of control crime in Detroit proper. Until the people of Detroit learn to associate their poor choices in government with the resulting lack of employment and opportunities they deserve dirt roads.

                    Glen Burns works for Channel 2 and GA Lottery wanted a host that could  travel and do Promos.  Glen Burns

                    said no because his employer is Channel 2.  I wish they could have kept Glen Burns as a host because John

                     Crow is not a good host.  He does not know his numbers and he messes up a lot.
