Okay, I hate TV. I will say that outright up front. But even I can get into certain game shows. Usually those that are intellectually inclined (e.g.- Trivia and Knowledge games shows). Yes, I can even admit it, that I watch Wheel of Fortune from time to time.
What I was wondering is if anyone here has ever actually been on a television game show? Or if you personally know someone how has? My aunt was on the Price is Right years ago and a friend of a friend is currently on Final Fu on MTV2 (not a traditional game show as much as it is a competition sport show).
The reason why I am wondering is most of these trivia shows seem to find some of the dumbest people possible to put on their programs. Save Ken Jennings, it's really rare to see someone hit it big. While watching Who Wants to Beat a Millionaire...er Be...I can usually sore through the questions without having to even think of using something like a lifeline. CashCab which is a fun show (which I got into because it followed "It Takes a Thief" but most people blow it on such trivial, no pun intended, questions.
Now I know I am not some end-all genius that would be the only person to be able to do this. In fact, I know quite a few people here on MMORPG.COM that could sore through these questions just as easily if not easier. That makes me wonder if these shows really do screen for stupid people and some sneak in...or should we all be getting on these game shows to have tons of money?
"What is it I have against Microsoft, you ask? Well, you know how you feel when you wait for an MMO to come out and when it does you feel like you've paid to play it's beta test for another 6-9 months before anything even thinks of working the way it should? Being a network engineer you feel that way about anything Microsoft puts out."
