Comment Box: In Which We Fail (Again) to Explain Carrot Top

By Liz Kelly

Carrot Top: Why does he pluck his eyebrows? It's creepy. -- Anonymous question submitted to last week's Celebritology Live discussion.

Those well-groomed eyebrows are just one small piece in the puzzle embodied by one Scott Thompson, aka Carrot Top. Since his emergence on the pop culture radar courtesy in the late '80s, Thompson has been an enigma -- not the seductive, mysterious type, either. His inexplicable draw is more akin to the mounting hysteria one feels when confronted with a bite from an exotic spider or inexplicable credit card charges.

"What is funny about a hacky prop comic?" we asked. "How far can his Huckleberry Bumpkin look actually take him?"

Pretty far.

After hanging on to a bottom-feeding career on the college campus circuit with stops along the way for a tepidly-received movie (1998's "Chairman of the Board"), he seemed finally to be consigned to the dustbin of pop culture history. But, thanks to TMZ, the boundless popularity of celeb-reality and Carrot's new-found love of body sculpting, he's reemerged as a tabloid and photo gallery mainstay. Not to mention his gig as a regular headliner at Las Vegas's Luxor.

In a 1995 People article, Thompson tried to explain his intangible qualities: "I'm part man, part vegetable," he said. And, it is suspected by many, he is now part suture and Botox. Although never confirmed, Thompson's dramatic transformation has spawned much speculation about possible plastic surgery. Even Henry Rollins has penned an open letter (which contains a peppering of some NSFW language) to Carrot Top, stating -- among many other good points about Hollywood and unreal physical ideals: "You're scary, and people are noticing."

So, why does he pluck his eyebrows? I dunno. But let me take a stab: Because they better match his freakishly large upper arms?

Wow, Liz. In this post you managed to draw in not one, not two, not three, not four, but five(!) Celebritology readers. I guess it really does take a village to ..um.. write a Celebritology column.
I *heart* hodie's Comment of the Week. It is SO TRUE.
MoCo should probably be awarded some sort of Nobel Prize for Selflessness for watching all the P.Diddy/Puff Daddy/Sean Combs/etc. videos.

RE: "...Carrot's new-found love of body sculpting..."

He's actually been sculpting for quite some time. It's a little disturbing that I know this, but he was in something that came out in 2000 or 2001, shirtless and ripped. My BF and I at the time wanted to vomit.

Also, my friend's brother was an actor (American Gladiators) in the late 90's, and sort of knew him. He confirmed CT regularly hit the gym. Oh, and CT is gay...or at least likes to have sex with men.

Those who support Palin, what do you make of her decision to travel by plane AFTER HER WATER HAS BROKE!

What doctor would really be OK with that? Advanced maternal age, the baby is already a known to have problems (baby's with Down's syndrom often have heart defects, etc.), water has broken and she is in labor-- and she is OK to go fly back to ALaska? What, is Texas really that much of a hell-hole for pre-natal care? Shockingly inconsiderate to her unborn child, to my eyes.

Maybe that's because the Democrats' policies attend better to their political needs. Republicans, esp. their Supreme Court appointees and Justice Dept., tend to trample on those groups' rights.

I used to find Carrot Top funny. When he looked liked the Wendy's chick ugly brother, he was funny. Now, with the body sculpting, well, it's like "when nerds attack." Not pretty.

I read somewhere that the daughter was actually living in a different city than the parents and living with an aunt while attending high school -- where she got pregnant. If you basically have the kids, the farm them out to someone else to raise, it's the same as sending them all to boarding school. I think the part that Palin is missing is that most of us think of being a mom as about raising the kids, not just giving birth to them. Which is OK, but don't tell us to vote for you because you're a mom if actually you sent your kids away for somebody else to raise.

"NO your water can break, and you may or may not go into labor. Did I cover that or not? My water broke VERY EARLY for son#1, and I was in the hospital about 10 days before they induced me, and he was born more than four weeks early, but they thought it was okay (if they hadn't they would have waited longer to induce)."

-I know that plenty of women's water break early and doctors try to STALL their labor. That doesn't mean the labor hasn't begun yet. Did you know that childbirth can last for days? (yeah, you did)
The water rupturing does mean the labor has started. It's in the early stage of childbirth which can last up to 3 days.

With a new Woods baby on the way, and Halle Berry releasing baby photos, we have some serious competition for cutest baby 2009. The Longoria/Parker baby, if it is ever born, has potential to be cute too.

The best analogy I can think of, well, when I was in college I started dying my hair. I always thought it was fun; as fun as tie-dying a T-Shirt. Different cuts, different colors. Then one day I realized I really couldn't remember what my real color was. For about 5 years I tried to dye my hair back to its original color, but I never got it quite right: when it grew, the roots would show and I knew I still didn't have it back to the color God gave me. Finally I just let it grow and grow, and that's when I discovered what color it was.

For CT, I think it must've been kind of the same: he started out doing one or two things, maybe minor things, and then he changed a few more. Then, one day, he just couldn't remember what he used to look like, but still didn't like what he saw in the mirror. So, he did more stuff--and crossed the line into freaky-ville. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. Ecco Carrot Top.

Apparently, I was rather long winded making my point. Apologies to the gallery., But you get the idea. Playing around with your look is one thing. But when you start to sculpt and cut things, there ain't no going back. I think that's what happened with CT--he changed himself too much, went too far surgery-wise, and now his only option for getting attention is to get it from being weird.

Keeps it up he's going to be in catwoman territory.

Good Friday list idea: a None of the Above bin for celebrity flashes-in-the-pan: Carrot Top, Tiny Tim, Yahoo Serious, Pauly Shore, you know, people that you know, but that you groan when you see them.

I deeply loathe CarrotTop - always have, always will. Never liked the hyper act or his squeaky voice. Bulging biceps and giant hair aside, what bothers me most is the eyeliner!

It's just the wrong color.

While the sentiment may appeal to a segment of the population, it's not really 'catchy' as far as slogans go, is it?
