Voted Cleveland's Favorite Celebrity over Drew Carey, that about says it all I guess...

I voted Alicia Booth because out of the options we were given I consider her to be the prettiest. Plus her boobs are huge right now with her being pregnant, and they look awesome.

But the two prettiest of all aren't even on the list, those being Lee Jordan and Stefani Schaefer who happen to be two of the most beautiful women in the world.

Anybody BUT alicia booth!!!

If you ever get a chance to see alicia without makeup, her makeup fading, or at the right angle, you will see what I mean.

Without "makeup" for her nose, I doubt she would even be on tv.

For Anonymous at August 1, 2008 11:48 PM, you might be as shallow as alicia. That sounds like her making comments about biceps.
