Decatur and Game Shows

A faithful reader informed me that former Decatur resident Steve Simmons will be on some show on Fox tonight called "Unanimous". Based upon the pic on the web site, it appears to be true. Edit: The show looks contrived, but here's a very short video clip of Steve.

Is he the truck driver? I only watched a tad, but I do remember his face. Pretty cool, Wiseguys!

Someone told me he used to own Mr. Jims pizza in Decatur. Don't know if it's true or not.

I've seen a few promo's for the show and it appears he is a REAL CRY BABY, on the show! It will be fun to watch, now that we know somebody....hehehe

No he didn't own Mr. Jims pizza. That guys name was actually Jim believe it or not. I can't remember his last name though.

I watched it tonight! Seems like a dumb show. It looks like all of them are getting played by the producers. They make up new rules as the game goes along....not smart.

He did run Mr.Jim's Pizza a few years ago, (back when it was good), he also worked at the Sheriff's Department for awhile. And he was one vote away from winning 1.5 million dollars!

He may not have OWNED Mr. Jim's, but he was the owner of the franchise in Decatur at one time. And I might add it was really well run during that time!

Yes, he did run the Mr. Jim's about 8 or 10 years ago. Did anyone know that the Mr. Jim's has re-opened. Is it any good?

I remember in high school at DHS back in the late 90's (like that was so long ago), we used to drop by like almost everyday to eat at Mr. Jim's buffet. The guy that owned it, the on you guys are talking about-everyone called him Big Jim. He made some money out of the deal anyway. That was back when DISD had that contract with Mr. Jims to provide pizza everyday in the Multi useless building. But the next school year the contract was up and Big Jim handed the place over to someone else. Too bad.

The new Mr. Jim's is good. Carry out or delivery only.

Stephen Simmons did in face operate Mr. Jims for about 5-7 years. Hollis Jones owned the franchise and Simmons leased the business and building from him.
