This week in an ALL NEW type of Countdown, Paul and Wayne ask great supporter of the show, Jarrod, to return to the guest host seat, only partially because he was the one who came up with this show idea! Essentially the VERSUS concept involves the guys once and for all, definitively deciding who wins some of the great comparative rivalries in Hollywood. And they're starting with one of the biggest: Arnold Schwarzenegger vs Sylvester Stallone to determine who is the bigger star!
Utilising a "revolutionary" scoring system, the guys get serious with the insults (amid much laughter and incredulity) as Wayne declares himself #TeamSly, while Jarrod and Paul may ever so slightly fall onto the side of #TeamArnie. At the end of the day, a winner is crowned, listener feedback is heard and a new type of Countdown is born.
Oh and Paul and Wayne give a short review of the critically panned Baywatch already out in the States and opening across the rest of the world this week. But be warned, #Negatron is back and on the warpath ...
