Do you remember when Melinda Doolittle first mentioned her compulsion to be balanced?

It was the Top 8 Girls episode. Melinda earned the title “Simon’s Tiger” after belting out “I’m A Woman.”

During a short interview, Melinda explained her “OCD” tendency, which she laughingly called “equal opportunity.”

If she touches something cold with one hand, she likes to touch something cold with the other hand. If she steps on a crack with one foot, then she does the same with the other foot. “We’re all in this together, right?”

Zaxby’s uses Melinda’s humor to its advantage, showing her chewing the chicken on one side of her mouth…and then making it equal on the other side. Kinda strange for a commercial concept, until you see Melinda’s natural, deadpan delivery.


And now for Melinda Doolittle’s second Zaxby’s commercial, in which she describes “the perfect bite” of chicken…

Here are all of the Zaxby’s celebrity commercials, where Melinda Doolittle is in good company with:

  • singer-songwriter Alice Peacock
  • race car driver Bobby Allison
  • Atlanta Braves announcer Chip Caray
  • heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield
