The girl part has to be added in for a couple of reasons, 1. If they are hot enough perverted old men (and shoot some young ones too) will watch it just to see the chicks. 2. If there was no chicks on it you know some girl somewhere would hit em up with a lawsuit saying how come there is no females on that show? And I'm sure that she would win the lawsuit and take more money from them than they actually generate airing the show...

i assure you he can play those games you just mentioned fairly well. better tahn the aaverage pub at least.

his name in starcraft is incontrol and his real first name is geoff.

btw @borat. this is where that funny story about harpoons came from. theres ton more funny stories there lol.

incontrol is the one that crosses his arms and claps for the virtua fighter introduction. and the one that has a bodybuilder type of look.

he has the smarts. he isnt just some actor. he is very good at debating and has proof for it.

Rockband is actually really popular. They have lots of Rockband contests out there. Its mainly a party game though. I couldn't see it being much fun to play by yourself.

As for the games selected of course they need to make a broad selection. Its about the best overall gamer. Not the best at one specific game.
