TMZ has some photos of the ShamWow guy’s alleged victim. Let’s just say that the photos are really horrible looking. You’ve been warned. [TMZ]

    All I can say is “Sham’Ow!” Looks like Ripley in Alien 3 after the ship crash into the planet.

    And to think, I only slightly hated the Shamwow guy before.

  2. Mackinstyle says:

    More like, ShamPOW!

    You all saw this coming.

    Warning: So not work appropriate!

    • CubeRat says:


      yeah I know. Past picture number 2 for me is when I stopped looking, for fear that I would have the almighty IT/IS department critical hit me.

      • AbsoluteIrrelevance says:

        @CubeRat: No shit. Come on Consumerist. Throw up a NSFW

        • nakedscience says:

          @AbsoluteIrrelevance: “Let’s just say that the photos are really horrible looking. You’ve been warned.”

          Is that REALLY not enough warning? REALLY??

          • CubeRat says:


            Well, I took that as she was just really beat up. I was not expecting the boobies in picture 3.

            Anyhoo, now I know what they mean when they say, “You’ve been warned”. :P

            • nakedscience says:

              @CubeRat: I find it curious that a woman beat so badly is “safe for work” but a BOOB isn’t. I know that’s not YOUR fault, but it is true that violence is okay while boobs are not.

            • trujunglist says:


              Like the flashing banner with the half-nekkid bikini chick specifically selling sex plastered over every page?
              I would hope that your office is professional enough to realize that you’ve no intention of masturbating or something at work; you just wanted to see the damage to this chick.
              *wonders if his work even cares, shrugs, doesn’t care, will come up with excuse if necessary*

  4. DerangedRoleModel says:

    It looks like Jeri Ryan became a crack whore and was punched in the face repeatedly.

  5. Your friends can call you HoJu! says:

    Are you sure those aren’t the before pictures?

  6. Bresslol Bressler says:

    So much for lunch.

  7. jchabotte says:

    Looks like he was testing her ability to soak soda up through a carpet?

  8. darkrose says:

    I wonder if he told her “you’re gunna love my nuts”

  9. SnaLanKoat_GitEmSteveDave says:

    Well, what about pictures of Vince Offer/Shlomi’s tounge? Just to be fair.

  10. 1stMarDiv says:

    I’m not advocating what this douchebag did, but how is this woman a victim if she started it by biting his friggin’ tongue?

    • ludwigk says:

      @1stMarDiv: She’s a prostitute and they were both on drugs/drunk/don’t remember. There’s plenty of blame to go around, but its safe to say that this is all reprehensible and NONE of it should ever happen.

    • wishing upon says:

      @1stMarDiv: She deserves to be punched in both eyes for biting his tongue? And that’s even just assuming she DID do that. No one deserves to be beat for that.

  11. Tian ( says:

    Too bad Shamwow does not absorb bruises. Perhaps they can develop a new product:

    Sham-Aid, and soaks up 500% of its own weight in blood & bruise!

  12. octopede says:

    Stay classy, Vince.

  13. MMD says:

    I’m all for a broad definition of what a Consumerist post should be, but this is real a stretch. What editorial purpose does it serve to post a link to some other site’s salacious pictures?

    • farker says:

      Watch out. I’ve been disemvoweled and banned from posting for questioning the Consumerist.

    • nakedscience says:

      @MMD: Because the ShamWOW and Vince have been a staple here for quite some time.

      • Cat_In_A_Hat says:

        @nakedscience: Exactly. I originally sent this story to the consumerist because in the past many consumerist posts have featured the some mention of the Shamwow. This story is just a follow up to last week’s post. While the story is not directly related to consumer news, it is newsworthy because the seriousness of the charges against Vince and how they will affect the credibility of both the infommercial star and the company that uses Vince as a spokesperson.

        • MMD says:

          @Cat_In_A_Hat: It’s one thing to talk about the spokesperson’s credibility. It’s another thing to wallow in the sordid details of the woman’s injuries. The woman who, by the way, is not the spokesperson.

    • Corporate-Shill says:


      Because stands of journalism do not apply to The Consumerist.

      I am hoping for a little Consumer Reports quality reporting to infiltrate this site. Still hoping.

      • trujunglist says:


        Personally I like the Consumerist edge. If you don’t like an article, you always have the option of skipping it. It’s especially true for this “article”, which isn’t even clickable unless you want to go to the comments. So yeah, shut the fuck up. Jesus.

        • MMD says:

          @trujunglist: I’m just asking a question here, not railing against the site. I didn’t even opine that Consumerist absolutely shouldn’t be posting this…I just asked a question about the value of doing so. “Just skipping it” isn’t an option if I have a valid question.

      • TCTH says:

        @Corporate-Shill:I do NOT understand all these people who bitch about the content on a web site but still continue to come every day and read through all that that content just so they can bitch about what they’ve read.

        Who appointed you guys the official content critics of the Internet, anyway? Wouldn’t your time be better spent frequenting sites you DO approve of?

  14. ceez says:

    i mean seriously dude?!?! must you hit a woman that bad to get her off your d!ck?!?!

    couldnt you just pulled her hair or maybe just 1 slap, not double wammy in the eyes and a few extra punches?!?!

    this one goes in the Chris Brown file.

    • orlo says:

      @ceez: Dude, you know how pissed you get when you bite your tongue? Think about someone else doing it. I would have torn at least one arm off.

  15. nakedscience says:

    Yeah, I’m not one to advocate violence against a woman, but I do wonder what his tongue looks like. It’s not like she just slapped him, she had his tongue. He went WAY too far, though, beyond just trying to get her off him, from what I can tell — basically they both should be hit with assault charges.

    • SabreDC says:

      @nakedscience: I believe they both were hit with battery charges.

    • Corporate_guy says:

      @nakedscience: I beleive if someone is biting your tongue off there is no way to go too far.

      It boggles my mind that anyone would say a man went too far by hitting someone so they would stop biting his tongue off. And he should not be hit with any charges. She was BITING his tongue off. I highly doubt you wouldn’t throw a few punches to make such a thing stop.

      • nakedscience says:

        @Corporate_guy: I think it would depend: Did he wack her a few times, and she stopped biting his tongue, and yet he CONTINUED to wack the shit out of her?

        They were both charged, and I think that is appropriate, and in situations like this, it’s quite common (think of it as a bar fight). Right now we only have his word against hers (“I swear I was defending myself!” — what if he wasn’t? We don’t now that for sure yet.) Court and all that fun stuff will determine now if it was self-defense or not. That’s how our justice system WORKS.

  16. zentex says:

    really horrible as in…

    !) photog quality?

    2) comeliness of the person?

    3) damage done?

    Cause I’m thinking 1 & 2 are questionable…3 looks like it really hurt.

  17. Jfielder says:

    The one positive thing about this: I bet I wont have to see this guy’s ugly mug yelling at me in commercials anymore. “Ya gonna love my nuts!”… ugh.

  18. trunkwontopen says:

    Billy Mays here for HookerBGone. You ever have a hooker bite the hell out of your tongue, and don’t feel like you should pay her? Then you need HookerBGone.

    It has the strength to tow this fully loaded SEMI TRUCK.

  19. unobservant says:

    It looks like he deflated her right breast.

  20. Nationalcoholic says:

    ShamWow guy = Moe Syzlak

  21. UnemployedPuke says:


    There were mugshot photos of her somewhere else on the web, can’t recall where tho’ …

    She’s actually quite the hottie!

  22. Peter Nincompoop says:

    Oh well. That’s what happens when you bite somebody’s tongue. She’s lucky to still be alive. Maybe the filthy whore should consider a new profession.

  23. Princess Sparkle Pony says:

    It’s so horrible. Both those pictures just look like misery to me. :(

  24. fatcop says:

    I bet she don’t do that again.

  25. Tonguetied says:

    ‘The Smoking Gun’ website writeup on this included mugshots of both of these folks.


    Looks like both of them got banged up a bit and if someone were biting on my tongue I think I’d be whaling on her pretty hard until she let go.

    And no, I don’t see how this is a Consumerist story either…

  26. silver-bolt says:

    Looks like Vince didn’t want to be one-up’d by Chris Brown…

    (And if she was biting his tongue and didn’t let go [AND HE called the cops] then she deserved it.)

  27. rpm773 says:


  28. Indyken says:

    Well it’s finally been confirmed, the real reason why “we can’t do this all day” has been solved.

  29. joe18521 says:

    Was he wearing his headset when performing this act?

  30. slickdealer says:

    Hrmmm. How come the mug shots of them (in the previous post) have no bruises whatsoever on her? Suddenly these pop up making her look like a zombie on a bender. I’m calling shenanigans.

  31. DePaulBlueDemon says:

    I really wish I had not clicked that.

  32. Corporate_guy says:

    It was self defense. This whole case sounds like a woman who purposely provoked a guy she thinks has enough money that makes him worth suing. Sadly our courts may even let her win, the police did originally charge them both despite the evidence of self defense.

    • HogwartsAlum says:

      I kind of agree with you, even though the whole thing is totally pathetic.

    • silver-bolt says:

      @Corporate_guy: The police can’t believe contradicting evidence on both parts, so they go with the empirical evidence that they both, regardless of self-defense, beat on each other. Prosecutor decided to drop any charges because he didn’t want to mess around trying to find out which one was lying.

    • katieoh says:

      @Corporate_guy: how many punches to the face does it take to get someone to let go of your tongue with their teeth?

      answer: one. not the, idk, fifteen it looks like he dealt her.

      [this got posted up there for some reason, wtf comments]

  33. Jeremy W. Simmons says:

    I think she deserved it, she shouldn’t have bit his tongue for one, she’s a hooker for two, and I think she might have dreamed it up to get him and his money; whatever he makes I don’t know.

    • nakedscience says:

      @Jeremy W. Simmons: “one, she’s a hooker” — so hookers deserve to be beat? What?

      I don’t get the feeling he was trying to beat her, just that they were both trashed and she bit his tongue and they both beat EACH OTHER, but your comment still screams “The dirty whores deserve it, don’t talk to your man and you won’t get your ass beat!”

    • Peter Nincompoop says:

      @Jeremy W. Simmons: I’m with you. I bit through a part of my own tongue when I was in a car wreck and that pain was beyond excruciating. I can’t imagine somebody biting down on my tongue that won’t let go and me doing anything less than what Vince did to get her off of me. If you’re actually going to bite somebody’s tongue, then you have to expect what happened to her to happen, if not worse.

      Vince and the prostitute are both trash and that isn’t up for debate. The prostitute though stands to gain a lot out of this situation and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if she did what she did to blackmail $$$ out of somebody who stands to lose his career (you just know Vince tells women that he’s the sham-wow guy). After all, she has no issue letting anyone with enough cash have their way with her, so what’s stopping her from cashing in on this potential mini-payday? She probably figured the payoff to keep quiet for a couple black eyes and a few black and blues would equal what she makes in a year turning tricks. I don’t think she expected Vince to do what he did in the lobby and get the police involved.

      In her ‘profession’, she’s lucky to be alive because there are a lot of psychos walking the streets who wouldn’t think twice about killing a hooker.

    • katieoh says:

      @Jeremy W. Simmons: yes, because all women are evil and just out to get your money!!! we all deserve to be beaten!

      you’re an idiot.

  34. Danj3ris says:

    I’d hit that.

  35. Triterion says:

    Most of the stuff over and under her eyes looks like eyeshadow to me. Black eyes only look like that in the movies…

  36. Corporate-Shill says:

    And to think he was paying her $500 per hour.

    For $500 per hour I would expect the the punching bag to be able to take a hit. Oh, thats right, no woman should ever be considered a punching bag.

    Here’s to the Shamwow guy having a problem in prison finding his nuts….. hint, hint… his nuts might soon be missing .

  37. Blueskylaw says:

  38. geekgrrl77 says:

    What purpose does posting this serve? Does this have anything to do with consumerist, other than the fact it is the shamwow guy?

    This is more TMZ’s speed than consumerist.

    Despite all the news, we *don’t know* the whole situation, and I’m frankly disgusted by the comments here that say stuff like “I’d hit that” and “well she’s a hooker…” Does that give someone permission to beat the crap out of someone? So what she bit his tongue (which I can imagine would be awful)– did he really need to beat her this badly to get her to stop?

    Don’t stoop so low, consumerist. Even if it is the shamwow guy.

    • silver-bolt says:

      @geekgrrl77: Evidently, he did have to beat her that badly to make her stop. Even more so when you read that she didn’t want to call the cops, or cooperate after they arrived. He called them.

      This isn’t Jezebel. She should not get the benefit of the doubt just because she is a woman. Likewise, he should not be crucified under the double standard.

  39. prodpoke says:

    not much of a looker :]

  40. Jason Ergott says:

    The SlapChop guy was the victim here. The hooker didn’t love his nuts.

  41. katieoh says:

    dude, what the hell is up with these comments? she bit his tongue, sure. but answer me: how many punches to the face do you need to deal someone to get them to stop biting? i guarantee she let go [if his allegation is true] after the first blow TO THE EYE.

    • missing_piece says:

      @katieoh: I agree. I’m also wondering how he got both of her eyes if she was biting his tongue. Granted, I don’t make a practice out of punching people in the eye (or anywhere else, for that matter), but I would think that would be a weird angle to hit someone in the eye when they’re right in your face. I’m surprised there isn’t a huge bruise on her forehead or the side of her face – that’s where I would think it would be easier to hit.

  42. É®îç says:

    Weird. She looks fine in these booking photos.

    Does she know he’s the guy who does Sham Wow, not some millionare?

  43. zatoichi says:

    Did anyone else find it a little funny that he punched her a good one in the tit for good measure?

  44. ninjatoddler says:

    New sales tactics by Shamwow? YOU’LL seriously SAY WOW EVERYTIME!

  45. Barney_The Plug_ Frank says:

    ShamWow guy laid the big Sham SmackDown.

    Slap Chop!
    yes I am ashamed…
