The original Huge Internet Superstar, Riv has been offending the Internet with his often-offensive brand of humor since 2001 with the JasonRivera.com (now defunct) website. Riv's got a magnetic personality and by magnetic we mean "people hate him." Riv's penchant for making enemies has caused him over the years to deal with the likes of angry webcam-whores, Jeff Hardy's entire fan-base, a crazy cult, and various mongoloids, mutants and maniacs over the years. If only Riv could attract a woman the way he attracts psychopaths his world would be infinitely better but then we would no longer be entertained because he'd have better things to do!
Ghost stories have existed for years and we never actually believed in them until contact was made from "The Other Side" where Krispin hails from. Known for his stories of the great beyond, where technology is seven years behind and where anyone who passes on seems to go even if they lived a seemingly good life, he's our version of the Cryptkeeper, telling us stories, sexually harassing women about whether they've ever given a man a prostate exam, and making poor taste jokes while mocking everything wrestling fans hold sacred on our show. It should serve as a warning that Krispin's appearances on Asked with Riv and Landin are NOT for the faint of heart!
What's this guy doing on the Internet? Between chiseled abs, and actually completing college, Johnny Landin could probably be doing anything else with his time, but due to the fact he is opinionated, and doesn't simply conform to what society wants him to do, Landin fits right in with the crowd of Asked, where the former wrestler-in-training and Staten Island native shares his stories, his unique viewpoints on life and... ...oh screw it, why are we trying to write this like a brochure? He gets to hit on women and call everyone beneath him fat slobs and when you work out in a gym as much as Johnny Landin does you've earned that right!
First Appearance (as self):
Morgan's ACTUAL first appearance is unknown because he's been calling the show for ages - a master impressionist, Morgan won the Asked Award for his various contributions and sound effects. Morgan may not always be in the spotlight but his effect on the show is profound as the vast majority of sound clips, music, and segments involving audio are his brainchild not to mention he is responsible for a variety of the strangers & freaks the can call into Asked with Riv and Landin at any random given time. Is it reality or is it Morgan James? You simply never know and neither do we most of the time!
The co-founder of Asked & Answered with Jason Rivera, Matt "EdWood" Oakes brought a unique perspective. The irony of an openly gay guy who is also a "straight shooter" isn't lost on anyone. You can bet that no subject was too taboo to EdWood during his tenure on the show. Due to personal issues coupled with a grass-roots campaign to run for the United States Senate, EdWood had to resign from the show. However, as the patriarch of the entire network, EdWood often appears like a giant tsunami to tear up the airwaves, complain about underhanded business practices by shady companies, and hit on Johnny Landin and Jason Rivera on the airwaves or to deliver a long, drawn-out filibuster to take over the show at any moment's notice. EdWood is always watching... what is he watching? You really, really don't want to know... unless you like men.
Riv was having a bad day attempting to float the show with various random co-hosts in the spot since EdWood's departure. Cactus Chris, MJR, and even Ralph would fill the spot temporarily. It wasn't until he found Ashlynn that he found someone with the right chemistry (and estrogen) for the job. Ashlynn is the only female ever to co-host Asked, however upon Johnny Landin joining the program and he & Riv Butabi-Bouncing Ashlynn between them with their insane comments and implementing an "Ashlynn Buzzer" for her long-winded responses, Ashlynn eventually overdosed on disgust and is no longer with us. Reports that she is in Krispin Wah's crossface are unconfirmed at this time but Ashlynn's tenure & ability to tolerate Riv & Landin will never be forgotten. We attempted to take a page out of the book of the television show Cheers and replace her with Kirstie Alley but have been unable to do so.
A skinny sarcastic white guy named Glenn who has a love-hate relationship with Riv and Landin on Twitter, Glenn (no last name, much like Madonna or Cher who share body types with him), Glenn got promoted to co-host during one of Landin's hiatuses for college classes and remained in the position until he drowned in a sea of background noise before resigning from the show. Glenn is most noted for the "Glennspring Question of the Day" - a question that is usually more difficult to answer and requires thought unlike many of the questions we receive. Glenn still contributes and calls into the show on occasion, sometimes by himself, and other times still accompanied by ridiculous amounts of background noise that sounds like he is attending a STOMP! concert.
Happy Hodgenick! Brian Roth joined the Asked panel as the "Science Guy" of the show because it was the closest we could get towards splicing Glenn and Ashlynn into one person without breeding them (even though he's older than both of them). Despite being the factual master of all intelligent discussion, Brian Roth, the career comedian eventually contracted Dengue Fever from three orphaned Indian children with musical talent whom he attempted to adopt and manage. It was believed that Roth had passed away from the fever but in actuality Roth had to step away from being a full time host due to the fact that family obligations are a full-time job. Maybe it's a good thing the Wii-U doesn't have any games, right? Roth still appears on our show on occasion as well as hosts his own show, the Rothcast.
