Todd Oldham: The Host With the Most

When he started to talk to the designers for the first time outside the PDC, I got worried. I wasn't sure I'd be able to take more than one episode of that voice. It was so, "I am an actor! I am reading a script. I am hosting a show!" But I agree - his voice didn't really bother me when he was going around talking to contestants. He seemed like a nice guy when he was chatting with everybody, but in my opinion he lacked the "mentor" feeling Tim Gunn gives off.
He only does that horrible inflection when he's reciting the scripted intros.
I found him quite personable when he was just talking to contestants.

Is he trying to be Tim Gunn? Because seriously, Todd, just give it up. No one can be Tim Gunn except for Tim Gunn.
I doubt it, and thank God, I don't really care for Tim Gunn. I seriously love Todd. He's the main reason I watch this. I hate that he's not a judge though, I'd like to have heard more of his thoughts on the rooms.

It was very distracting.

I've been looking forward to seeing him on this show since I got my copy of "I Like You" by Amy Sedaris. He did the photography for her book. Just knowing that he is her friend makes me like him. I hope she makes an appearance on the show.

Mr. Rogers: How are you today boys and girls?
Little Chili: I'm fine.
My family still laughs about that. As long as I don't start talking to TO onTV, I'll be OK.

There was some weird inflection that sure was Todd imposed but I really think there was something wrong with Bravo's audio mixing. About half the episode sounded like it was screamed from a muffling box.
I agree that he is much more relaxed in individual chat with the designers. I was also a bit dissapointed that he didn't tell anyone to change anything up too much. I want him to be nice mostly but a critical thinker. I want him to walk into someone's set and say 'oh no'. I can't wait for him to freak out over some horrible design.

I mean this in a good way :)

I do like him. Im really hoping it was just first show jitters, and he will relax and get with the program, literally.
Honestly, I dont think he will, and I'll have to get used to the new and botoxed TO, but a girl can dream!

Todd Oldham isn't worthy to polish Tim Gunn's shoes.
Ya got that right.

This is dead on. At first I was disappointed that Todd isn't one of the judges, but I think that frees him up to take on that critic/mentor role during the design process, and I hope that as the show progresses, that happens.

I like the layed back, positive, persona.
The only distraction I had was he came off as a fey Gilligan, which was okay after a moment.

Seriously! I can't decide if he's more RoboHost, CyborgHost, or HoloHost. If he was a hologram, though, maybe they could reprogram him to fix the voice.
Its like, he's not a real person, but something Bravo bred.

He really does sound like the presenter on a children's program. I'm finding it endearing rather than annoying. For now.
