'The Least Annoying People'- The folks at have once again polled readers to come up with the most - and least - annoying personalities of the year. Topping the most annoying list for 2003 are the rabid, cave-dwelling members of Al-Qaeda... As for the least annoying people of the year, Salma Hayek comes in first, followed by home repair hottie Teresa Strasser, God, the late John Ritter and actress Mischa Barton.' 

—Page Six in the 'New York Post'

'Strasser is a genuine public intellectual, a bright writer who managed to succeed in morning radio in a venue beyond NPR. (Now that is a shock.)' 

—The Daily News

'Teresa Strasser, one of the hosts from the first season of 'While You Were Out,' is a raven-haired, quick-witted hipster with an acid tongue, the kind of person who might make mordant jokes at funerals.'


'This column, 'Saying Goodbye to an Angel in Sin City,' told a good story and told it well. Ms Strasser has a great voice. She allows the reader to see the story clearly and feel a part of it. The column is also a touching reflection of our society's rituals surrounding death.' 

—Los Angeles Press Club, Judges' Comments (Columnist Award)

'Teresa Strasser is the main draw, as the show's perky, smart, and dont-you-want-her-as-a-gal-pal host … Teresas a funny lady, a hard worker and an Emmy winner for her writing on 'Win Ben Steins Money.' Shes a sistah if I evah saw one with that cute little barrette she uses to hold back the hair from the right side of her face during those hard-to-complete jobs that require lots of bending.' 

—The Southern Voice

'An almost lyrical narrative of a ghastly family tragedy. From the brutally honest lead to the thoughtful last line, we couldn't put the story down.' 

—Los Angeles Press Club Awards (News Feature Award)

'Teresa Strasser was challenging you at home before you knew who she was. She was a writer for four celebrated game shows of varying degrees of prestige in the late 90s and early 00s. The bright and lively queen of Friday night cable television knows how to scour through the almanacs, the newspapers, the atlases and quotation sources ... In a turn of events which surprised even Teresa, she became host of TLCs While You Were Out, the networks second-highest rated prime time show.' 

—Inside the Games

'In keeping with the TLC decorating program host formula, Teresa Strasser is very pretty. Fortunately, Strasser is also clever and likeable, so us average-looking viewers dont totally hate her.' 

—Winnipeg Free Press

'She was beautiful, had this sort of cool nature and was funny as hell. Someone on the show remarked that it was a nice day and her reply was, 'Any day you're not being fed intravenously, it's a nice day'. That was it for me. I was in love ... Her self-effacing humor is extremely endearing and her quick, off the wall wit is priceless. Hopefully a book will follow.'

—Citi Music Magazine

'Thanks to co-host Teresa Strasser, The Adam Carolla Show isn't just smart for morning radio. It's just smart.'
