With Chuck owning the Buy More, Awesome will "become the face of the company" Ryan McPartlin says, "[Awesome's] going to be like the Tony Robbins of the Buy More. The fact that Ellie and Awesome know about the spy world, it'll be like the A-Team and we'll help out, but only when we're absolutely needed because of the baby." According to Chris Fedek, Chuck won't just treat the Buy More as a front, but be concerned with it being profitable. As such, he uses Awesome in a new promotional campaign. We'll also "see the original Buy More commercial that Big Mike starred in back in 1981." From TV Guide's MegaBuzz
