Who's Tougher?

Posted on

Schwarzkopf Vs. Schwarzenegger

BIGGEST FEAT

In the summer must-see, Terminator 2, Arnold rid the world of a hard-wired assassin called T-1000. But hell, Norman zapped an entire army of droids—and without help from that Hamilton woman.

BRAWN

Norman stands 6’3″, weighs 240 lbs. and cinches a 42″ belt. Arnold is 6’2″, 210 lbs. and could stash a YIELD sign in his shirt. His chest: 57″; waist: 31″. Now there’s the beef.

BRAINS

Norman’s IQ is a reported 170. Arnold’s is classified, but he was smart enough to stay clear of cousin-in-law Willie Smith’s trial.

REST…

Norman likes to watch Jeopardy! and Cheers. Arnold’s tastes are likewise just-folks, though he favors shows hosted by Maria Shriver.

…& RECREATION

Arnold pumps iron. To us, that’s work. Norman shoots skeet and casts for salmon. To us, that’s play.

HOME ALONE

Norman raids his freezer for mint-chocolate-chip ice cream. I White House fitness czar Arnold just can’t say no to cigars—7-inch vintage Davidoff Dom Perignons ($25 per, by way-of Cuba). Stogies beat sweets, hands down.

HONOR AND OBEY

Norman takes out the garbage. Arnold—clearly no girly-man—doesn’t.

GETTING THERE

Norman drives a Toyota Land Cruiser and now flies like the rest of us: commercial. Arnold owns a $44,000 Army Humvee, as well as one more jet than Pan Am (a 19-pas-senger Gulfstream III).

SIGNATURE LINE

Who can forget Arnold’s “I’ll be beck”? But Norman’s “I’m no hero” recalls Bogie and the Duke; nice touch of class.

AND THE ENVELOPE, PLEASE

Think it was easy engineering a tie? Think we want either of these guys mad at us?
