  • One of the best TV hosts out there, and hot too.

    Morgan Webb is a tv host on G4tv's Extended Play/X-Play. She is a co-host with Adam Sessler. She is known for strong burns on insanely bad games, and sometimes good. She's even hilarious on her comedy sketches on X-Play. (Especially the one with the monkey on the X-Play set)She even made guest apperances on mini cheat sections during commercial breaks, and she and Adam Sessler, even talk with Kevin Periera and Olivia Munn on the monday videogame talk on Attack of the Show. I even remember an old sketch of her and Tina Wood having a rivalry against each other. Overall, Morgan Webb is a really hilarious host, and shes really gorgeous.moreless
  • She used to be cool, but in recent times she has turned lame.

    2.2
    I was once a fan of Morgan Webb. She seemed charming, talented, and gorgeous. She was one of the reasons why I'd watched the show 'X-Play' regularly up until a year and a half ago. But ever since she got married to some middle-aged executive guy who runs the Rhapsody website (named Rob Reid), all her appeal has gone straight out the window. She no longer has any regard for her fans or show any feeling onscreen (i.e. she now comes on like a soulless shell of her former self).



    If I did this review some 2-3 years ago, she probably would have scored a 9.0+. As she is now, I ought to give her a 1. But since she used to be cool way back when, I decided to give her a 2.2.moreless
