Isaac Humphries settles the debate on how to pronounce his name

We finally have some clarification as to how to pronounce Isaac Humphries’ first name. Matt’s always said “I-Zack” on the show, which I’ve insisted is incorrect, and many others in the media and in the fan base have also been split on the correct pronunciation.

But now we know after Humphries cleared the air in an interview on Tent City Live last night:

So there ya go. Humphries wants to you to say Isaac the same way everyone else says Isaac.

“There’s nothing worse than when someone comes up to me and says I-Zack,” he said.

    My mom, who is from KY, not far from where Matt was raised, naturally calls Italians, “Eye Taowl Yunz”.

    I’m sure she too has always called Humphries, “Eye Zak”.
