    Hey Kids! Spelling is Fun! Supporter

    Speaking of other quiz shows... anyone else watched The Hustler? I've watched the first three episodes and find it really entertaining.

    Basic idea is they have five people. Get asked a trivia question as a group, if they get the answer right $10,000 gets added to the pot. But one of the five people secretly knows all the answers. At the end they have to guess who that person ("the hustler") is, if they are wrong hustler wins everything if they are right remaining people split the pot (a few people get eliminated along the way).

    Flows much better than the chase did for me. Very fun mix of trivia and social manipulation/deduction.

    I didn't care much for the producer as a host, but I guess in 2 weeks the various guest hosts will start so that should be interesting.

    Also, what was that dude thinking with his wager on that last Daily Double? Just handed over the game.

    moon pie, what a time to be alive. Supporter

    Lol yeah that baffled me - i didnt mind the producer as host, he seemed immediately smoother and less awkward than Jennings, but i just am looking forward to Aaron Rodgers april 5-16.

    I thought the producer did fine (Is his name Michael Richards, just like Kramer?)

    My daughter didnt like him, and wanted Ken back (lol)

    He seemed very smooth with it.

    Same name, but he goes by Mike. He's a producer, but has a lot of hosting experience. He hosted Beauty and the Geek and a show called The Pyramid.

    He was fine, but I prefer Ken.

    Somedays, I feel stupid (Monday) and do not know any answers in round 1, let alone round 2. Monday (or Tuesday) was one of those days, where wife/daughter 3 were getting all the answers (countries, English Lit, or anything else) where I didnt even open my mouth for a wrong answer (stumped all game).

    Last night, I hit a lot of right answers, Its weird how it works that way. All it takes is a couple categories that you are familiar with.

    I think my youngest daughter would do very well. Somehow, she just reatains a lot of information in that head of hers. She turns 18 in 3 days, and will sign up for something (a test?). Should be interesting.

    yeah and at that age she can probably test for all 3 (teen tourney, college, and regular adult). I wish I had figured out ways to take the test back when I was in college. I didn't start doing it until I was an adult and it was all online.

    The audition is tough though. Written test with questions that def seem harder than the initial online test, which is already much harder than the TV questions.

    If it is a ~astrological category I will blurt out "who is Galileo" regardless of clue

    Mike Richards is probably my pick so far. Dude has wanted to be a host for a while and he’s been waiting on the sideline for a bit. He used to be the EP of Price Is Right too.

    He’s also enough of a blank canvas that I don’t think it would be as jarring as a celebrity.

    A celeb is def not the right choice. I don't really like this dude or Ken, but the more I see them the more I'll get used to them I guess.
