I was bummed when 2000 rolled around and smellevision hadn't replaced television. You had your chance a few years back when Honey Boo Boo had a scratch-and-sniff episode. If anyone is looking for me, I'll be sitting in the corner convincing myself MB made that up. I don't know about Honey Boo Boo, ...

Re: Consider helping a boardie live the dream!

This makes sense, I didn't realize that him being in Canada would come into play, and more than that, forgot he was there at all. Thank you, I feel better about my card. This is part of why I try and live my day to day expenses completely on one credit card, then if there's any problems, it's not ca...

I never used gofundme before, I don't know anyone who has, so I have to ask here: I put in for x number of dollars My credit card charge was y number of dollars (less than what I put in, hoping you get the full amount although I know there's fees) I was also hit with a "foreign transaction fee" I ju...

Re: Question for LA-area contestants (former and pending)

When it comes to what stresses somebody, everyone is different. My only show was MSQ, and I was a basket case the night I thought I would be playing in prime time. As soon as I stepped on stage, everything went away and it was just me and the game. I proceeded to kick the crap out of my opponent 52-...

Re: Took the WWTBAM test this morning

Producers like standing contestants these days so I wouldn't expect a return of the hot seat.

I just don't see them doing this and not have the questions be corresponding to the dollars.

I do like level two being $50k, and no risk on $100k.

Re: Monday, June 22, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I didn't think it was possible, but we have now seen a worse bet than last week.

I don't blame five games taking a toll on the champ, with a normal taping schedule it should've been the first show of the day.

Re: FJs for the 6/15/15 week

How rare is it for the contestants to do much better in a week than boardies? I would guess it's either equal or they tend to do better than us as not every boardie can pass the test. I'm thinking closer to equal because we aren't under the lights like they are and we don't all write our answers do...

I guess you never heard of "Maneater" either.

Was Anteater the song about Jackie Mason?

When this came up, I precalled Prizzi's Honor, but that was the only one I didn't get. I never knew anything about the movie, I just knew the title.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I think as long as you're not dressed like a slob you'll be fine. Color doesn't matter.

I do suggest to anyone to buy a new shirt, it's something affordable that will look crisp and fresh on camera.

Re: Nation's Brightest

So have the subsequent rounds been similar questions, like an IQ test, or were they more like trivia and logic puzzles? Those of us who are still in the process have signed NDAs, so you're not likely to get too much detail, but it's been various types of problem-solving. No trivia. I wouldn't want ...

If you're just looking to practice with something at home, best to just stand behind a chair and use a clicky pen since you really won't come close to the real thing anyway.

Re: Familiar face on Millionaire

Could be more of us on Millionaire this season than Jeopardy.

Funny considering how millionaire only has about half the total contestants.
