Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Are the remarks the MMs give after answers are revealed in round 1 scripted/teleprompted in some way? They're awfully pithy-but-random to be generated on the spot, even for someone with an incredible knowledge base. They're certainly not teleprompted (contestants could see all the same telepromptor...

I'd really like a copy of the show, but I'll have to dig around to find one, I'm sure.
It will be a bit of a project for me to do so, but if no one else steps forward, I can figure it out for you.
I'll let you know. Thanks!

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Mike, do you know what production code of your episode is? Because we used to get production codes for the episodes of earlier Originals from the PDFs, now most of us only get the production codes through the GSN app. I don't - where would I find it? I wasn't given anything at taping, and if they t...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

I'm on today's episode! That was a vicious final round (surprised neither of you answered Ohio, though. I thought that was the obvious one.). I was in the green shirt, and went out second - I didn't make it to the final round. But that's fine, because I wasn't sure about any of the answers (though ...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

So, some general questions since we really haven't heard too much about the process on here. How did you audition? Do they pay expenses at all (not likely)? Do the runners-up get any compensation? Is it in LA? Do the Master Minds get a financial incentive for winning? How did they treat you during ...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Are there any resources out there with episode information and which contestants are on which episodes? I haven't gotten any official confirmation as to when my episode is airing, but my math says it has to be soon.

Poll request for Silver Dollars.
I'm kind of surprised it was even a bottom row clue.
Yeah, as soon as they mentioned "Morgans", what else could it be? Seemed very simple to me.

Re: On Both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune?

In the pool. I wonder what the longest time between Wheel and Jeopardy appearances is. I'm at 18 years and counting, assuming I ever get the call.

Re: Tuesday, June 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ - I can only assume the Liberian history (and its connection to Monroe and early America) isn't taught like it used to be. I know there's a lot more post WWII history that IS taught nowadays, though, so sometimes other less relevant stuff gets left behind.

OK, James neutralized the DD by picking it first, & was still running away with it at the end of SJ.
If I'm remembering correctly, he's picked the J-round Daily Double first in three of the last five or six episodes. Hasn't hurt him.

Would Silvija's response be accepted if she made a non-$0 wager? Alex's response seemed to indicate it would have been, but I've never seen someone replace a word with a symbol/shape before.

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It is sad that Alex’s health is a major concern going forward because watching him host a potential tourney with James, Brad, Ken, Alex, Roger, Larissa, Austin, Matt, Buzzy, Ben Ingram, Julia, etc. etc. would be great TV. There's no way they'll have another all-stars tournament immediately followin...

Re: Sony Reportedly Searching For Alex's Replacement

If a new host has a salary well below that of Alex Trebek perhaps some of the freed up money could get that bump many have requested her for 2nd and 3rd place amounts? $1000+$2000=$3000 for however many regular shows occur. Not accurate, but let's call it 200 shows. That's $600,000 given to the non...

Is there a reason anyone should know what city that Montreal deli is in? That clue seemed very devoid of TOM. Poll request? I had also never heard of it - I wonder if it's a bigger thing to know east of the Mississippi. There was no TOM, though I assumed Montreal or Toronto was going to be correct.

Re: Friday, March 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Personally, I like the interviews (when and if the contestant is given an opportunity to speak in sentences and relax a bit) I wonder how the "skippers" would respond if they made it to the show and no interest was shown by the audience or their acquaintances to their moment in the spotlight. I thi...

I'm watching games from now on with a pall around me, wondering if/when this will be the last time I see a game hosted by AT. Poop.
These games were filmed months ago. There are still dozens of unaired episodes, and for now, he's still working on finishing up the season.
