If you've come here looking for information on Buckstar of the Buck Star Show on Last Comic Standing, here's what I know.
The Newsgroup scuttlebutt around LCS2 was that he was an intern working on the show that was part of a staged gimmick. That whole season was so awash in controversy that the BuckStar Is A Fake Meme just got pushed under the carpet.
Given the other shenanigans (allegations of rigged voting, staged arguments), it wouldn't surprise me if they had pulled yet another fast one with BuckStar filling the role of starry-eyed dreamer Susan Lucci.
However Reality News Online attempted to debunk the rumour in an article dated July 7, 2004
Although some message boards and other sites have continued to suggest that Buck Star worked for the show in some capacity, our sources tell us that this is simply not true. Buck truly was just a guy who wanted to become a comic and had financial assistance from his father to help pay for his trips following Bob and Ross around on each step of the try-outs. In fact, some at NBC and with the show felt Buck was starting to look like a stalker due to his ability to appear at all of the try-outs.
They have no further updates, but after this round of LCS4 Shecky Magazine has resurrected the Buck Star-is-a-PA rumour.
There is word on the street that he is a production assistant on the show and that he is not a serious participant in the auditions. He's a plant. This would explain why he is able to be in all the towns where the show holds its cattle calls.
In other words, we're right back where we started two summers ago. As much as it pains me to say it, given the track record of the show's manipulation of the audience and celebrity judges, I personally think it is far more likely that BuckStar is a plant.
The saga continues. From the comments here:
Hello, I personally know Mr. Buck Star... witch is his chosen stage name. We worked together in Kingman AZ for over a year...Before this he was of all things a sales consultant for one of the car dealer here in Kingman, and he told me and several others he would be going back this year for another try.
Thanks to Travis E., who left the quote. It does appear to be more than sincere and gives as specific an amount of details that a third party can give. I appreciate the forthrightness of the commenter greatly, but it would be fantastic to have more details to verify.
