I loved The Mint! It was a silly idea, sure, making people phone in to win small amounts of money, and no doubt the network made quite a lot of money off people doing that and never actually getting through onto the show, and the games were silly and hardly mind blowing, but it was the HOSTS that kept me watching! Rob Mills, Lyall Brooks and Natalie Garonzi in particular were all outstanding, and showed quick wits and a great comedic element to live performance that should stand them in great stead for their future careers. Lyall Brooks in particular was a hoot - he would do anything for a laugh, and was completely unafraid to 'go there' when others would not! I see that Lyall and Rob have gone onto bigger and better things since The Mint so the show was not a complete waste of time.
