Watch a contestant fall on down on The Price is Right!
February 21st, 2019 under Game Shows. [ Comments: none ]

Tracy was so excited that she was asked to come on down on The Price Is Right, that she fell down just before she made it to Contestant’s Row. Something that Drew Carey was not going to let slip. He even joked with her that “maybe, later on, she could win a motorcycle.”

Guess what prize she was going for? You guessed it, a motorcycle. Did she win it? Not only did she win the wheels, but she also won the computer, a trip (no pun intended) to London and a car. It worth tripping on national TV to win an international trip (pun intended) and all those other prizes!


Is this worst thing that can happen on The Price Is Right?
January 24th, 2019 under Game Shows. [ Comments: none ]

You think missing the price of the Showcase Showdown by going over a dollar is the worst thing that can happen to a contestant on The Price Is Right. Think again.

The worst thing that can happen to someone on the game show happened to Tara Armstrong. The Announcer called her name and no one jumped up screaming. They used the camera to pan the audience and she was nowhere to be seen. That is because she was in the bathroom. Therefore, she had to finish up what she was doing and run back in.

When she did, she high fived everyone as she ran towards the stage. I don’t know if I would have done that because we don’t know if she washed her hands after she was done on the toilet. Who knows what she was doing when they called her name? Maybe it is better they do not know.

BTW According to Today, it happened once before. Back in 1976, Patricia Bernard was called, but she was busy answering another call. That is when her husband and a page ran out to get her. Not a bad record, twice in 46 years! I am surprised it does not happen more often.

To see the first time it happened, then click here!


Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek won’t be retiring until at least 2022
October 31st, 2018 under Game Shows, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune. [ Comments: 2 ]

Despite Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak and Jeopardy Alex Trebek hinting about retiring soon, today we found out that that will not be happening for at least another four years. That is because Sony Television announced today that they renewed both of their contracts and Vanna White’s through 2022. Meaning they will not be going anywhere for a while.

Which is a good thing because their game shows are one of the few constants that we have and we need that in this mad mad world.


Did Pat Sajak just reveal he is going to retire?
July 9th, 2018 under Game Shows, Wheel of Fortune. [ Comments: none ]

Pat Sajak has been pretty much been hosting Wheel of Fortune since 1991 and looks like the game show host is getting ready to retire. The 71-year-old tweeted this over the weekend, “Thinking ahead to retirement in a few years. Might be time to break out the Beanie Baby collection and cash in.”

Does it sound like he is ready to call it a day on one of the easiest jobs in Hollywood? If he does, then what will you do? Better yet, who should replace him?

More importantly are Beanie Babies worth anything because I got a few I could sell?


How well do you know Jeff Bridges?
May 22nd, 2018 under Game Shows, Jeff Bridges, Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]

Jeff Bridges has been acting since he was a just little kid and he has a resume that most actors dream of having. Throughout his 60 year career, he has starred in a lot of well-known iconic movies including King Kong, The Fabulous Baker Boys, Seabiscuit and True Grit to name a few. So popular that he earned himself his own category on Jeopardy yesterday.

Did the contestants know him as well as we think we do? They did not. Do you know him as well as you thought you did? I did not. I cannot believe I did not get the last one because the title is a huge clue to the answer. Did you get it?
