It was hard to tell, but I'm guessing the players just look down and have some way to know if they were the first to ring in. Presumably a light will come on for the first to ring in, and the others will be locked out.
I watched that part again and I think we will need inside information for the answer. The players seemed to be looking towards Brooke, but down. I could not pick up any lights on the floor or on the front of the game board for the individual chase that seemed to signal who was in first.
My guess would be something with three lights viewers can't see that is low between Brooke and the game board. I would not think it's a monitor since the players on the ends would would be confused from left and right appearance vs. position.
Is there such a thing as game shows having a dualshock motion sensing signaling device like the on the Playstation systems. First in feels a vibration? That would do it.
Whatever the answer it gives the players a better chance to get a few more right facing The Beast. We'll have to see if all 8 games from this season have it. Based on the players from last night we can guess they had auditions perhaps in Seattle, Los Angeles and Boston?
Trevor looked vaguely familiar so I would guess it was not his first trivia appearance.
