Scott Thompson (AKA Carrot Top) is perhaps best known for his freakishly curly orange locks that look more like the freshly shorn pubes of a ginger giant than a human head of hair. He's also a prop comic, actor and, if a recent photo shoot for Las Vegas Magazine is any indication, a brand new man thanks to a makeover that straightened the signature mane into a flowing coif of soft, voluminous beauty. The comedian has garnered at least one new prospective love interest thanks to the change: himself.
"I would so f*ck me," jokes Carrot Top as he admires his new look.
The change is drastic; he now looks more like Megadeth's Dave Mustaine than Sideshow Bob. Most would agree that's not necessarily an improvement but more of a lateral move. Still, the comic seems genuinely happy with the transition: "I was kind of reluctant, but now I don't want to go back to the other way. This is a way, way sexier Carrot Top."
If you're not Carrot Top himself though, odds are you don't find the man sexy. Odds are, he scares the hell out of you. The question, though, is which version of Carrot Top would you least like to be trapped in an elevator with: regular Carrot Top or straight-hair Carrot Top? For us, the choice is simple: neither. But what say you?
