Subject: Trivago or Chivago?

Does anyone else hear the usual, frequent male spokesperson in Trivago commercials pronounce it "chivago", as in "chicken"?� (With the one or two women I've heard occasionally in their commercials, I hear "trivago", as in "trick".)

I don't know whether it's my ears, my TVs, or the Trivago male.

Joel
