Frank from the ExtenZe Infomercial on Blind Date

One of the versions of the infomercials for the ExtenZe male enhancement pills featured a male host identified only as “Frank.” (His hostess was Bridgetta Tomarchio.) Well, it turns out that the ExtenZe infomercial wasn’t Frank’s only foray into broadcast television. He also appeared on the reality TV show Blind Date in which a man and woman are set up on a blind date and the cameras capture all the gory details for us to laugh at. Check out this video of Frank’s blind date with a woman named Kelly:

This video was from a “Hall of Shame” segment, so it only showcased the lowlights from a previous show; I wish I could have seen the video from the original.

Many people have wondered whether the Girls on the Couch in the ExtenZe infomercial were really strippers or porn stars, but maybe they were asking that question about the wrong people. The most interesting thing in the Blind Date segment is when the announcer declares that Frank had “appeared in some racy videos for Playboy.” It appears the much of the date consisted of Kelly accusing Frank of being a porn star and Frank emphatically denying it. I guess Frank was highly offended at being associated with something as disreputable as a “porn star.”

So let it be known once and for all: Frank is NOT some sleazy porn star! He is the host of a sleazy infomercial selling penis-growing pills—and don’t you forget it!

Watch this video from Frank’s work on the ExtenZe infomercial:

And it should be noted that though Frank is not a porn star, the previous host of the ExtenZe infomercial, Ron Jeremy, IS a porn star.

For those who can’t get enough Frank, here are some images from his ExtenZe performance:

  • Is it only my twisted brain, or does anybody else also feel that some of the interviewees on the street look more like drag queens than women? (Nothing against drag queens, just a curiosity.)

  • I just came across an interesting write-up on ExtenZe. Here is the link (just in case):

  • Sorry to keep writing more and more comments, but how can you help when you keep unearthing goldmine after goldmine?

    Here is a link that lets one calculate how much penis length one can gain in how many months by using what penis enlargement pill.

    I’m too old to be (officially) eligible to LOL, but let me LOL nevertheless.

  • Frank sounds like a jerk.

  • Speaking of Frank, I did some research on a particularly lonely night and found out that his name is Frank Mercuri and the “steamy” videos he has appeared in are overwhelmingly softcore porn fare, including three Playboy Centerfold videos with Brande Roderick and Karen McDougal. Really, he is a “porn star” but does not participate in explicit sex, just simulation. You can find his resume featuring titilating titles like “Naked Secrets,” “Kinky Pleasures,” and “Insatiable Cravings.” Kind of reminds me of that gag on an Mst3k episode where Mike and the bots make up a bunch of softcore porn, erotic thriller titles that might appear on the USA network during the credits of “Outlaw”:

    Jeff Conaway in
    “Malibu Death Breast!”
    “Murder Most Moist!”
    “Death Spank!”

    Anyways, here’s his imdb page

  • I love when people actually come to a forum and take the time to post that you need a life.

    I sure hate censorship, but Mr. Lucas, is there any way we can get rid of these clowns?!

  • I’ve seen some of this guy’s movies… he has a bald spot. Bad actor too.

  • How can this guy replace Ron Jeremy, the Legend?

    Ron Jeremy gave millions of bald, pot-bellied, short, ugly guys like me hope. He told us that all was not over for us, he let us hope that someday (maybe) we would get laid.

    Long live Ron Jeremy; may his tribe increase!

    What has Frank done for us? Nothing.

  • I just noticed that the announcer/host of Blind Date looks (to me, at least) like Frank’s long-lost brother.

  • I was flipping through the channels and came across a movie on TMC called Swingers Sex Party. All of a sudden I see this guy on TV and say to my husband, “HEY is that the extenze guy???” Lo and behold it was him. HILARIOUS!

  • Check out the life alert or what ever ” I have fallen and cant get up” commercial the dispatcher is the older extenze guy on couch with “partner”

  • yea, the white hair guy with his ‘wife’ who says he doesnt care about the size increase, but, wants to try extenze for the ‘better performance’. He’s on the ADT alarm commercial. A burglar breaks in a house and he extenze dude calls the house and goes over a loud speaker “YOU ARE CAUGHT! WE ARE SENDING COPS” to the burglar.

  • I have know Frank for 20 years. He is a cool guy from Hermosa Beach. He has been with more good looking women than I can count and he would give his left arm for a friend in need.
