GSN’s Skin Wars: Fresh Paint is a beautiful new show!
June 15th, 2016 under Game Show Network. [ Comments: none ]

Skin Wars has been a huge success for GSN and tonight at 10p RuPual hosts the show’s first spinoff Skin Wars: Fresh Paint. Each week 6 artists, who have never done body painting, will compete for $10,000. Artists like illustrators, cake designers and sign painters to name a few.
For the first round, they will be broken into teams of two. Those teams will be paired up with a contestant from one of the past seasons of Skin Wars. During that round the mentors can help the contestants any way they want. Then when the two hours are up, the mentors have to choose which team member goes on to the second round. For that round, the mentors can only help contestants with instructions, they cannot help them paint. When that round is over the Judges will decide which two contestants move on to the final round. This time the mentors only get 15 minutes with them at the beginning and the halfway mark to help them out. The final two are pretty much on their own. When they are done, the judges decide who goes home with the $10,000 prize.
I love Skin Wars because it is amazing to see what those body painters can do. Skin Wars: Fresh Paint in ways is even cooler because you get to see these professionally artists grow as they work their magic on a new type of canvas for them. Just because they are great at one form of art, doesn’t mean they will be just as great at this. But for the most they are and their work is stunning to look at.
Tune in tonight and every Wednesday to watch art come to life on the human body.


Skin Wars shows us that #LoveIsLove no matter who’s loving who!
June 14th, 2016 under Game Show Network, Jerry O'Connell/Rebecca Romijn. [ Comments: none ]

The Republicans are using the Pulse Shooting to ban Muslims. The Democrats are using it to ban guns. Can we all meet in the middle to ban hate? Love is love is love is love is love is love!
Whether it is a man and a man, a woman and a woman or a man and a woman. As Skin Wars shows us, “Every couple is a work of art.”
It is a stunning way to show us that all love is beautiful no matter who is doing it. So focus on this and not all of the hate.
You can watch an all-new episode of Skin Wars tomorrow at 9p on GSN followed by the debut of its companion series Skin Wars: Fresh Paint.


Winsanity is pure insanity!
June 9th, 2016 under Game Show Network. [ Comments: none ]

You can’t spell Winsanity without insanity and this GSN game show that debuts tonight at 9p is just that!
Each week, Donald Faison is going to ask contestants to put facts in order of numeric value. If they place all 10 facts from 4 different categories in the correct order, then not only do they win a lot of awesome prizes like a car and a lot money, the audience also wins some great prizes. If they don’t, then they go home with what they came in with. Which is nothing. So the contestants have a lot of pressure on them and it is insanity.
It sounds like it is easy, but it isn’t. I tried guessing along with them and I have just as many prizes as I did before I watched the show. While it isn’t easy, it is fun. Plus, you don’t have to be a genius to win, you just have to be an excellent guesser! Which I am not.
When it comes the host, why hasn’t been Faison been doing this all along. He is far from Clueless with the way interacts with the contestants and the audience!
So tune in tonight and every Thursday at 9p for a game show that is more than a numbers game. Oh wait, that is all it is!


Imagine going on a blind date while playing GSN’s Idiotest
May 17th, 2016 under Game Show Network. [ Comments: none ]

Let’s be honest with each other, we have all been on a blind date. Those dates are normally awful, but at least you aren’t doing it in front of a live audience with millions of people watching at home. But tonight at 10p that is exactly what 4 people are going to do as contestants on GSN’s Idiotest.
Not only do they have the pressure of going on the first date with someone they don’t know, they also have to compete on game show for $10,000. Can they handle being under pressure?
The first couple is cool chick Codi Lane and hunky Cody. Does having the same first name mean they have an advantage and an instant connection? I am not exactly sure who she had a better connection with, her blind date or the host. Will that work against them?
Then there is Mike and Natasha who are too adorakable for words. I don’t know if the producers knew it when they set them up, but they are made a match made in heaven. This couple is so perfect together; you know they are eventually going to get married. Will they have a $10,000 head start thanks to the game show? Will they ask host Ben Gleib to marry them?
But like I said, this is a game show and it is not only about finding love. That is a just a bonus for tonight’s themed episode. Last week, they were Undateable and this week they are dateable.
Back to the game show, I love the way it makes you think. They show you a picture and ask you question about it. The answer seems obvious, but most of the time it isn’t. It is a trick on words and images, and you have to use your noggin to get the correct answer. You feel so smart when you get one right and feel like an idiot when you get it wrong. Thus, the name Idiotest.
Even though, you should feel like an idiot, you still find yourself loving every minute of this game show. Especially, when they throw some loving into it like they do tonight. You don’t want miss love happening right before your eyes, do you?
Like all game shows there is host, and Ben Gleib is perfect for Idiotest. Tonight there is a great moment when he finds out that Natasha has a great laugh. He asks to hear it and she tells the comedian to make her laugh. Even he is feeling the pressure tonight, how will he stand up to that challenge? All I will say is that he’s taking it back old school and that will make you laugh with them. Especially when you hear her really adorable chuckle.
Make sure to tune in for tonight’s Idiotest that is as joyful as pizza and unicorns.


Idiotest makes a dateable date with the Undateable men!
May 10th, 2016 under Bill Lawrence, Game Show Network, Ron Funches. [ Comments: none ]

Undateable is one of the smartest comedies on television, but how smart is the cast? Tonight at 10p, Rick Glassman, David Fynn, Ron Funches and Brent Morin test out their smarts on GSN’s Idiotest.
The four comedians will try their best to answer the clues that are given to them, while the host Ben Gleib tries to maintain control of his game show. Who has the harder task? The host obviously because these four funny men have a hard time trying to determine the obvious from the answer in questions like what in the picture has a 5 o’clock shadow or a which is the smallest hole they can get the pictured balloon through. The latter one leads to a hysterical joke from Gleib, thus helping them realize that this is his show and he’s the boss.
Why are stars of Undateable putting themselves through this Idiotest? It’s all for a good cause, the winning team will get to donate $10,000 to the charity of their choice. Glassman and Fynn are playing for the Red Cross and PATH: People Assisting the Homeless, and Funches and Morin are playing for Autism Speaks and Boys and Girls Club. Both teams and their charities are winners, just one is a bigger winner.
Tonight’s episode of Idiotest makes you use your brain two ways. The first is testing your wits as you try to guess which item in a photo answers the given question. Not everything is at it appears, so you really have to focus to determine the correct answer. The second one is allowing yourself to laugh for a half hour straight because that is what these 5 men accomplished. So be prepared for your brain and cheeks to hurt for a long time afterwards, and it is one of the few times where I say pain is a good thing.
Tune in Idiotest tonight to watch the cast of Undateable try to prove that they are not idiots and then keep tuning in every Tuesday at 10p to see everyday citizens to do the same thing. Plus, it is fun to use your brain in different way than it is used normally. It’s a muscle that needs this type of workout.
