More Magic Bullet: Mimi’s Doppelganger

In describing all the glory that is the Magic Bullet infomercial, I was unable to discuss one very interesting guest among those invited to Mick and Mimi’s shindig.

There is a blonde lady who goes unnamed, though she appears to be with Ike, the guy who sports a Greg Brady hairdo and whines about getting a “real breakfast.”

This woman has the same hair color as Mimi, the same hair style as Mimi, and a floral sun-dress similar to the one Mimi wears. It seems as if she’s trying to be Mimi’s twin.

Look at this image of Mimi on the left and this unnamed guest on the right:

Who knows what kind of twisted fantasy that sick freak Mick invited this woman over to fulfill!

Actually, the producers of the Magic Bullet infomercial have her on to express amazement at absolutely everything that goes on. Because she is seated to the right of Berman at the counter, she has many occasions to be astonished at whatever he does.

Here is her wide-eyed reaction to the fact that Berman enjoys the salsa made with the Magic Bullet:

Here she exhibits an unseemly amount of empathy when Berman says, “Yuck, I hate broccoli!”

When Mick and Mimi reveal that the Magic Bullet “self-blending party mugs” come with “colored comfort lips” so that everyone can tell which mug is theirs, this woman absolutely looks like her head is about to explode:

Talk about easily impressed!

  • I was going to blog about this, but you beat me to it! Oh well. I’m going to go order more Ruby Reds now. (You really should have a review of THAT one. Priceless. It’s a pity though that I can’t find the video anywhere online!)

  • Are you kidding me? Plainly obvious that this is Mimi’s sister. That’s why they look alike and dress alike. They most likely bought both of those dresses when they went shopping together at Loehmann’s the other day. I think there’s even a reference to their relationship somewhere in the dialog…

  • I always thought that this “unnamed guest” was named Tina. Consider that there is a couple named Fred and Wilma, obviously in connection to the Flinstones. So, considering the guy’s name is Ike … what comes to mind is Ike and Tina Turner.

  • THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for posting pix of my all-time favorite infomercial!!! No matter what time it is, I’ll stop and watch the first 15 mins of this, because it’s simply TOO priceless. I’m completely enamored with “Wilma” and her priceless comments and expressions…I’ll pay anyone who can tell me who she is! I wish you could include audio clips here, like Wilma’s “Right, right, right” and Ike’s “That’s so NICE!”, because they deserve special mention as well. Wow, I can’t believe there are others out there who are just as freaky as I am!

  • I have watched the Magic Bullet infomercial more times than I care to admit because I am *fascinated* with this motley crew and their stunned amazement at this gadget. They appear to not get out much if this cousin of a blender transfixes them to this extreme degree.

    One of my favorite parts is when Mimi’s doppelganger hits her lover/boyfriend with the back of her hand in a “getta load of THIS” gesture as she is yet again astonished and amazed at yet another trick the MB can do. And who can’t help but adore that lovable curmudgeon Hazel and her magical lit-but-not-smoking cigarette? And Berman… all I am going to say about Berman is that I am gonna marry that man one day!!

  • This is one infomercial that really is sweet on
    protraying characters. It just also happens to be one of a very few that I watch. And really! Who is this other young blonde woman? Her sister? And Hazel! You can’t get any better than that for
    character acting!

  • Blondie’s name in the Magic Bullet To Go infomercial is Tina…..so an obvious homage to Ike and Tina Turner.

    And I saved the worst for last……in the Magic Bullet To Go infomercial, Berman and Hazel are – gasp – lovers. You may now puke.

  • Darth,

    Thanks for the info. I still haven’t be able to see the “Magic Bullet To Go” infomercial, but I am desperate to watch it for myself!

    Berman and Hazel as lovers?! Talk about bumping uglys!

  • i think all these “normal” everyday people are actually coming down from a crazy night of meth induced, unprotected orgy. obviously ike is the man since the first thing he asked for was a “real” breakfast. berman filmed, the unnamed girl fluffed, wilma directed, fred was the grip, and mick and mimi got freaky for the camera. after an amazing night what a better way to wake up than to a n AMAZING product.

    Comment by scott schlossberg on November 22, 2007 at 7:53 pm

  • I knew “Ike” I got his autograph the day he left for Hollywood. Saw him on the commercial last night. Wow I can’t wait to see what I can get for it on ebay. HEH!

    Comment by "Gina" on November 23, 2007 at 8:29 pm

  • I LOVE THIS INFOMERCIAL!!! I actually got one of these for Christmas this year. I havn’t made anything yet, but once I make a Boulvard Bellini or the Presto Pesto I’ll let you know….

    Comment by AMANDA on January 3, 2008 at 3:10 am

  • I think Hazel is supposed to be Hazel from the 1960′s TV series http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hazel_%28TV_series%29

    Comment by Mike on January 4, 2008 at 9:47 pm

  • I saw this infommercial again last night way, way late.

    I love this fucking thing. I makes me want to call right up and order 5 of teh Magic Bullet.

    Hazel and Berman are a hella sexy couple

    Comment by beej on January 31, 2008 at 8:33 am

  • This has to be the greatest infomercial of all time. My dad and I noticed the creepy similarities between Mimi and that girl who looks like her twin, even before I discovered this site! I love Hazel’s line:

    “Dinner’s always a production!”

    Other than the Time Life infomercials, this is the best one.

    Comment by Harrison on February 10, 2008 at 11:38 am

  • The funniest thing about this is when Mimi says: “So everybody can get…… exactly what they….. (longest imaginable pause)….. WANT!”

    Comment by Toke on March 14, 2008 at 7:58 pm

  • My favourite exchange:
    (Mick): “Errr, nachos anybody?
    (Fred): “Oh yeah, those are my favourites!”

  • The Magic Bullet infomercial makes me so happy I could cry.

    Comment by Joey Jojo on May 20, 2008 at 7:20 am

  • Wow, I have seen this a million times and yet I still watch it. is something wrong with us? My friends think I am nuts. Too funny.

    Comment by Shaggy on June 2, 2008 at 11:06 am

  • The Blonde is none other than Mimi Standing in as a double…Like the Patty Duke Show. Movie Magic.

    Comment by Jake on June 23, 2008 at 3:01 am

  • I was watching an old episode of Blind Date on the Fox Reality channel yesterday, and I’m almost positive I saw “Tina” (Mimi’s Doppelganger) on it. Her name was (I think) Kristen and she was incredibly bored with her date from the moment he picked her up (maybe he should’ve blended smoothies and dips to entertain her).

    Comment by Markdown on July 8, 2008 at 11:26 am

  • Excellent info. I’ll try to track down that Blind Date episode.

    Comment by Paul Lucas on July 8, 2008 at 1:29 pm

  • I love you all guys, thanks for all the info!

  • i was in a play with the featured woman here. haha i guess she got her 15 mins of fame! not something i would have wanted to do! lol i don’t think she’s acted in anything else. she was the lead in the play i was in-

    Comment by RR on August 27, 2008 at 11:35 am

  • This infomercial is still airing, unbelievable! I get the biggest charge out of how everything they need as ingredients are always just magically (and neatly) displayed on platters, just, snap you’re fingers and presto!! Magic food, to go into the Magic Bullet. They never mention anything about the prep needed prior to using this thing, as if the food just preps all by itself.

    Comment by Joe Marx on September 22, 2008 at 9:30 pm

  • I knew Mimi a few years ago! She was dating this guy that wrote for Sex Court, they were supposed to get married. She’s really into the raw food diet.

    Comment by Amber Berglund on September 23, 2008 at 8:15 am

  • This infomercial is priceless! That couple named Ike and Tina…Ike looks uncannily like a real-life version of the Archie comic character. And did anyone get the Fred and Wilma connection? Fred and Wilma Flinstone? But the best actors in the bunch were Hazel and Berman. They were the old soldiers. And catch when Mick makes that milkshake towards the end of the infomercial…and as he pours, he says “Enough for the entire family”…what family? Their little weekend bunch? lol.

    Comment by Polly Williams on November 22, 2008 at 12:00 pm

  • My favorite part is the obviously frustrated wife’s response to his adding curry powder to the chicken salad…”curry powder on everything” and her laugh…

    If there was ever a nominee for an award this infomercial is it…it’s like a bad accident; I can’t help but watch it everytime I see it.

    Comment by Joe on January 16, 2009 at 4:46 am

  • Who is the actress who plays mini? And isn’t she in another infomercial about some type of arch support system.

    Comment by Tino on January 16, 2009 at 12:34 pm

  • Her name is Mimi Umidon and she is also in the WalkFit infomercial.

    Comment by Paul Lucas on January 16, 2009 at 3:20 pm

  • Oh my god, this is hilarious. I love the Magic Bullet infomercial.

    Comment by Canaduck on March 24, 2009 at 9:32 pm

  • Maybe someday I’ll watch the rest of the infomercial. I can’t take my eyes off of Mimi’s cleavage. WOW! What a pair.

    Comment by MarineCorpsVet on November 1, 2009 at 6:30 am

  • I worked with “Ike” at a department store in the south before he moved to california to be a star. :-)

    Comment by shopgirl on April 22, 2010 at 9:12 am

  • The 2nd blonde, “Tina” perhaps, I’ve seen her somewhere before and I’m sure it wasn’t an episode of “Blind Date” as mentioned here. She looks like a stereotypical soap actress. Anyone know if she was on a soap? All we’d need is her real name to confirm!

    Comment by Jaybone on May 22, 2010 at 2:02 am

  • Wanted to give a heads-up to all the beautiful peeps on this post. I am the perpetually in awe blonde”. Thank you, BTW, I will use this for my next Facebook posting. Seriously, I love the fact people are still talking about the Magic Bullet years later. I am very blessed I was cast…yes as Mimi’s sister. :) Several years later, I am ready to hit the commercial world again. A little wiser, MBA in Business, a husband I met on the shoot, and gorgeous family!!!!

    Thank you TV Land. oxoxox……Kristin

    Comment by Tina on October 14, 2010 at 7:10 am

  • And I am the ‘perpetually in awe blonde’s’ friend in ‘real’ life. Kristin moved with her gorgeous family and husband whom she met on the shoot behind the camera several years ago and so whenever this commercial comes on, I make sure I get my Kristin fix. Kristin is hilarious in person and the most glamorous person I know. Trust me people, the character she portrays is simply a character. Memorable, right?

    Comment by Allison on October 14, 2010 at 3:21 pm

  • I am a life long friend of “Blondie” (Kristin) and let me tell ya, she is definitely playing a character, this is one smart gal. This however reminds me, i gotta buy one of those

    Comment by Cinema-photography on October 14, 2010 at 5:08 pm

  • I can’t believe there is more people besides me that watch this thing. My wife thinks I’m crazy but I’m just in awe by this for some reason. I guess someone needs to start a club for the watchers of the magic bullet.

    Comment by Dewayne on December 26, 2010 at 12:32 pm

  • What about Hazel with the cigarette is she single? Seriously though I have got a magic bullet and it actually gets used. Though not everyday. I know someone who uses his everyday to mull dope up in

    Comment by rastus on October 10, 2011 at 1:58 pm

  • I would love to slap my nuts on Tina’s chin.

    Comment by coconutdog on April 4, 2012 at 1:58 am

  • Do you have any nude pics of Mimi? Perhaps rubbing baby oil into her tits? That would be nice.

    Comment by coconutdog on April 4, 2012 at 2:07 am

  • I wanna get freaky with Hazel. But first I need about 20 alcoholic smoothies made with the Magic Bullet! Then I will show Hazel my ‘magic bullet’…
