Frozen Enthusiasm

METEOROLOGIST GROUPIE -- A starstruck Ilya Mirman yuks it up with the wax Al Roker.

SUBMITTED BY: Ilya Mirman   LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2010)

A shame that NBC weather guy and foodie Al Roker was immortalized by Madame Tussaud’s before his gastric bypass operation.

It’s not easy to perfectly duplicate a jaw-numbing smile, but it looks like Ilya has a future career as a dental impressionist.

(Rock concert photographer Ilya Mirman, co-founder of Tacky Tourist Photos, recently shared his travel picture secrets with National Public Radio).

Stop Roman Around and Sing!

New Hampshire Magazine editor Rick Broussard, caught here relaxing during the City and Regional Magazine Association Conference, never leaves home without his ukulele!

SUBMITTED BY: Rick Broussard   LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2012)

Chorus of the Gods?  Rick’s melodic enthusiasm has little effect on his stiff back-up singers!

If you happen to be at Caesar’s Palace, home of one of Evel Knievel‘s most bonecrushing stunts, make sure you keep your wife away from their flirtatious guards.

Pumped in Vegas

High Heel Comfort: Chilling out in style at The Cosmopolitan hotel.

God knows whose giant sweaty foot slipped on this shoe earlier, but it makes a fantastic lounge chair. Foot fetish folks take notice!

Waxual Harassment – The Sequel

Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas gets a little fresh with herself at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Las Vegas. (Source: Las Vegas Sun)

SUBMITTED BY: Tacky Tourist Photos   LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2011)

If a guy posed with the new Fergie wax museum statue like this, he might be chastised as sophomoric, crass, or perhaps even a little bit sexist.

But when you are touching your fake self, it is amazing what you can get away with!

Braveheart gasping for air

Does Mel Gibson deserve a special spot in Wax Museum Hell?

Does Mel Gibson deserve a special spot in Wax Museum Hell?

SUBMITTED BY: Darren G. LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2010)

Are Mel Gibson’s movies SO good that we’re willing to overlook yet another batch of racist crap?

It’s time to strangle Mr. Gibson where it hurts the most — his wallet.

(Incidentally, the acting talent of the guy pretending to strangle the pretend actor is absolutely PHENOMENAL!)

Oscar Weekend Special: The Not-So-Ugly Americans

Heather is one of hundreds of people -- women and men -- to exchange wedding vows with heartthrob George Clooney at the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Las Vegas

So much for the so-called Ugly American, that hateful 1958 political novel that forever stereotyped U.S. tourists and business people as loud, egotistical and obnoxious.

Quite the contrary, it turns out that Americans — like Heather and husband-to-be George Clooney — are not so ugly after all. According to a recent international poll of 5,000 British travelers, the United States is home to the world’s most attractive people.

The folks at OnePoll.com say having Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt in our gene pool all make our country a “hotbed” of gorgeousness.

Actor George Clooney, a perennial nominee for Sexiest Man of the Year, does his part, too. His alter-ego is polygamous, marrying hundreds of female and male brides a day at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Las Vegas.

Extra props go out to Heather for her acting ability. Look how affectionately she is holding the Wax Clooney’s hand.

And best of luck to the real Mr. Clooney, who is up for an Oscar this weekend for Best Actor in “Up in the Air.”

In retrospect, it should have been obvious that Tiger Woods had much more on his mind on the golf course. Look at that gaze. We suspect he isn’t thinking about what par this hole is — or that he even cares that this woman has a rather unusual putting technique.

Tacky Tourist Photos curator Ilya Mirman expresses dismay after a heart-to-heart talk with Tiger Woods about his womanizing.

Tiger’s infidelity, by the way, cost him a lucrative endorsement deal with TTP.
