  1. Monica Bertran!! Oh, man oh man, those lips of hers placed upon your neck would kill you!! They would render you defenseless to her, just like when Delilah cut off Samson’s hair. You could not resist her commands. Her thick luxurious hair!! Her embodiment of female form is full and without need, she is the desire in the night!! Imagine the movement of her hands upon your person, a strong bite on your neck……, the will is gone, your independence vanquished, you’re without a possible defense.
    Watching her take in air as she speaks, the apple of Adam is thrust up and down with every word she completes. Her “by permission only” invitation delivered through her eyes would break any mans attempt to resist. Whomever belongs to the invisible chain that is attached to the ring on her finger lives in paradise everyday!! Monica Bertran, OUCH! Break my heart!!

  2. Most of these women are very attractive. I’m sure each is equally talented and bright. But let me ask one question: how many talented, bright and truly ugly women hold anchor positions on television? They don’t “dress down” on television, nor should they. What’s wrong with being seen as a “hottie with brains”? So while some of you are pounding sand, attempting to be politically correct… I would have loved to have seen Victoria Recano being recognized in this or any poll. But since being “downsized” by TechTV, I believe the lovely and bright one is passing time on Inside Edition, or one of those bubblegum syndicated Hollyweird “news” shows.
    No Victoria. No Sumi (in the poll). So Monica has to get the vote 🙂
    P.S. Leo, since Victoria’s departure, I don’t remember to turn to TechTV as often. Not a slam on the network, but that is true. I wonder how many others tuned in for her?

  3. The way I see it….This is America the land of the free…Hmmmm? Well you do have to pay for some things. I don’t believe that Stacee was harmed in anyway from this Playboy Stunt but I haven’t read any comments from Stacee either.
    All I saw was a picture of her face probably a screen capture from her show.
    I saw no nude photos or any comments that were degrading or unflattering.
    I think we are all adults and it’s funny to me what a big deal we make out of anything relating to sex. Shoot we have done it at least once in our lives and no one can tell me that we don’t think about it at least once a day.
    I guess everyone has there own idea of what is proper and what isn’t but like the good book says…IF THY EYE OFFEND THEE PLUCK IT OUT. In other words
    if you don’t like what you see…DON’T LOOK! I’m not a advocate of pornography
    but I can’t sit here and say I don’t like looking at pictures of young naked ladies. Any normal breathing male is going to unless he’s dead or blind.
    If the picture includes lude actions then I don’t care to see it but a woman
    posing tastefully is a beautiful thing.
    If Stacee was harmed in anyway by this then I stand by her and think Playboy
    should compinsate her for her personel and professional damages. If she wasn’t and she has no problem with it why should we? I think what makes something good or bad is what the mind of the person viewing sees or wants to see.
    Baby’s arn’t born with close are they offensive?
    Oh well…to each his own.

  4. Hey, I agree totally with Mike, posted on April 10, 2001. I have been waiting for someone to step up and create a ‘Women of Tech TV’ calendar. No nudes, of course. I would love to see Sumi smiling in silk pajamas, respectfully attired and positioned, naturally. Nothing overtly sexual. Stacee, Kris, Victoria, Michaela… the prospects would easily fill out a twelve or fifteen month calendar.
    It’s important to understand that the physical attraction for many male would-be calendar purchasers would be less than the intellectual attraction here. These are beautiful women, but in an almost universal sense the beauty is intellectual (and personality, and achievement) -derived and it is merely enhanced, albeit substantially, by their outward grace, composition, and charm.
    We’re not talking Baywatch here. If any of these TechTV babes have had silicon (NOT sic) sub-cranial implants, I don’t want to know! 🙂
    Seriously, I would not want a calendar to be produced that would insult or trivialize the accomplishments and the non-gender-based strengths of the female personalities included within. Quite the contrary, the ideal calendar would and should list academic and professional accomplishments, and it should glorify the inner cerebral and metaphysical strengths of these women. Photographs would be tastefully included to glorify the fact that these accomplished individuals do so happen to be women, photogenic as they all also happen to be.
    I guess it really wouldn’t hurt to be reminded daily that our society does in fact, as I do, value more in women than just a pretty face and/or body.
    And, in regards to the ‘Sumi in silk’ comment above: the implied, albeit false, intimacy of seeing a bright, articulate and attractive woman such as Sumi in her night attire is what would work for me in that picture, not some seedy sort of sexual titilation. Let them all don pajamas, those of their own choosing. That would be really nice!

  5. I voted for Stacee, Have YOU???????
    I’m a litttle disappointed that the votes havn’t been pouring in for Stacee. She is one of the original ZDTV hotties and deservers to have a HUGE lead over the competion. I thought with TechTV’s devoted fan base that all of TechTV’s viewers would support her by voting, but her number of votes aren’t proving that. When she wins, I think it would probably help her career and defenitly improve her popularity if she took Playboy’s offer of posing. It would be wrong to think of Stacee as a “Sex Symbol” but I think it would also be wrong to deny that she is hot(very cute). I agree that there should be a Women of TechTV contest. The only problem would be who to chose.
    Leo must walk around TechTV saying “If only I wasn’t married”,
    Just kidden 🙂

  6. I’d like to see a babes of TechTV calendar! Let’s see, Jennifer, Stacee, Vic, Erica, Jessica, Sumi,… wow that’s a great start! Question for all the prudes out there, how is this poll any worse than, say, People Magazine’s Sexiest Man of The Year awards??? Give us a break, for crying out loud. Way to go Stacee!!!

  8. There is a “Babes of TechTv” website, unfortunately the guy didn’t really update it but 1 or 2 times.
    http://www.vanjohnson.com/techtvbabes.htm
    How did TechTV get so many good looking girls anyway? A poll on the TechTV site would be interesting, but it would be hard to choose just one ;). And although I normally wouldn’t have anything to do with playboy.com, I voted for Stacee too. She’s too cute not to. 🙂

  10. I thought some of the reactions above were prudish, and then I went to the site.
    I hardly ever watch Money Machine so I’m not familiar with Stacee.
    But… HOW INSULTING!
    If these women were not consulted for their permission, this is one crass little poll.
    Here they are doing financial work and trying to be respected for their brains, and Playboy makes it a beauty contest. SURE good looking women get ahead faster in all fields. But this is smarmy. I hope TechTV had nothing to do with it.
    Of course, if she gave any kind of consent, then never mind…

  11. Stacee is in the lead by the way! Relax people …lets face it won’t we all want to see Megan and Jessica instead of Patrick and Leo!

  12. Well this is a good news, bad news situation. Good news, Stacee might win just because TechTV has a large internet fan base. Also they didn’t do “Women of TechTV” which is great because you just can’t pick one of the lovely ladies at TechTV now can you???? The Bad news is this makes her look less like a reporter and more like a sex symbol which is wrong.

  13. I think you are all perverts, going to playboy and taking a poll, I bet you also read the articles: )
    Go Stacee!
    P.S. I think they should give out a free picture of one of the girls on TechTV with the fridge picture frame they give away to the callers.

  14. Victoria is a hottie. It’s gotta be tough working with her and keep from staring. She’s stunning.
    Don’t think we haven’t noticed how she interacts with you Leo! I think she’s got a crush.

  15. Leo,
    To quote you above “Neither techtv nor stacee had anything to do with it. Nor did Playboy ask permission. They didn’t have to. Stacee is a public figure.” Leo, does this mean we don’t have to ask your permission to get you listed somewhere online? Like say, if some of us tech girl, Leo fans got together and did something similar about you? 😉 Just thinking out loud…

  16. Ok wait, wait, wait a second…does this entail any “pictorials”, etc…? Or is this a situation where her name just showed up on a list/poll? I sure hope it’s the latter…with the former I don’t think I could watch her with any kind of respect again.

  17. Neither techtv nor stacee had anything to do with it. Nor did Playboy ask permission. They didn’t have to. Stacee is a public figure. I think she’s mostly pleased by the recognition. It doesn’t hurt that she’s beating Maria Bartitromo either.

  18. Prue Lewarne always gets my morning going right. The cultured English really makes me melt. You gotta know that underneath the suit and the shawl collar blouse is a pushup bra and sexy black knickers!

  19. Well I think it’s wrong if she didn’t want to be included on the list and they put her there anyway. And to vote for her is just going to support such behavior by these sleezy vendors to continue…. oops wait i voted for her…. ummm nevermind. Hey Leo love the new formats for TechTV but man you guys must be exhausted!!! Take care

  20. I have been a big fan of Stacee for about 8 months. I watch the MM just for her. Where are the Stacee shrine homepages? I would love to see more of her.

  21. With so many good-looking women at techtv, why doesn’t techtv set up it’s own poll (just for fun, of course) and let us vote for the cutest?

  22. I definately think that Jessica should considered for the list. But since us internet geeks can’t be in the Bay area to show her a good time. I think that you should play match-maker and hook Patrick up with her. I don’t think he would mind, and I think that it would be a good match. Just something to think about.

  23. Please let Stacee know for us that we feel humiliated with her. Time after time society as a whole just goes out and sheds its intelligence to promote sex and dehumanize women. Stacee deserves better than that and its pretty sad TechTV went for the cheap thrill to exploit it and her.

  24. Get ’em girlfriend. Show ’em we can whup the tar outta all those men.
    can you all do this.

  25. How did playboy ever hear about Staccee? I think it is techtv just trying to get publicity anyway it can. I think that is a bad way to do it. I have to go and tell my mother about this.

  26. Tsk tsk. A URL to Playboy, yet you didn’t like the fact that “Naked Mardi Gras Girls” ads appeared on TechTV…

  27. Really, Leo. Isn’t this just a lot of smoke and mirrors artfully timed to draw attention away from the boxers vs. briefs question? Come on – inquiring minds want to know!

  28. Well, I think its all rather funny myself, and funnier that she will most likely win.
    Though the magazines comment on the way her name was spelled made me feel a bit off. But as a joke, its a scream.
