Before Depace arrived, the only HowardTV staffer on-site was actually the last person Howard expected: Mike Gange. Critically, Howard also pointed out Gange's expanding waistline. Gange readily admitted a recent weight gain ("I feel gross.") and estimated that, at 5'8" and 250 lbs, he's probably the fattest staffer by volume. Asked whether he still managed to get laid, Gange shrugged: "I got a friends with benefits situation."
