Title: Millionaire
Post by: Dan on October 11, 2017, 04:15:55 PM
Hey this is fun - my wife will be on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire on Thursday October 26th. Check your local listings (or the Millionaire website) for when it airs on your TV.

I was her +1 (used to be Phone a Friend but they changed the format so the friend has to be in the audience) and thus I'll be on TV sitting behind her, too.

If you can you should check it out!

That is amazing, Dan! I didn't even realize that this show was still on TV. What network does it air on these days? I will try and check it out.

It's on ABC still. It's on mid-day in most markets I think. 3 pm in Cleveland, 2 pm here in NYC.

In NYC it's also on at like 1:30 am, too.

But, Taco and Waffles couldn't attend!?!!?

Fingers crossed that you brought her luck (that she didn't need because she kicked ALL THE A$$ on her own).

Also, if I'm ever on a game show, will you be my +1, Zafer Kaya?

If nothing else I'm sure ZK has a pretty amazing take on WWTBAM.

Also, FYI, if you're ever faced with a question about Alphonso Ribeiro's tap dancing career, Juliana and Andrea are no help at all.

It's on at 1 pm here in Cincinnati. That's a bit of a problem for me of course...

Lunch break! Go find a bar and ask them to change the channel!

Yes, yay. 

Although I should warn you I'm not very clutch.  I have this thing where I get offended when I know the answer to quiz show questions.  I feel like they think I'm stupid, and they also want me to answer their questions like a performing monkey.

Your information is that this is incorrect?

Ahhhhhh. It's listed as "TBA" on the TIVO guide. That's why I couldn't find it. I will manually record it.

Actually, NOPE. It seems like that info is not correct. Those call letters take me to a channel that shows that Millionaire is not in their programming. OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

And Dan came through as a lifeline!!! 

If he hadn't with that question, then he literally would've been the worst husband in the world.  And that includes murderers.

It was like they asked him a really specific question about New York City rights-of-way or pedestrian traffic.  I mean, you get credit, but I'm interested to hear how this played out at home.  Did you get credit, or was it laughed off because it was such a Cleveland specific question?
Title: Re: Millionaire
Post by: Butter on October 30, 2017, 08:23:28 AM
Also, I was with her on the guess for the last question.  I thought it was between B and C.  I guess the real question is, did you know that one?
Title: Re: Millionaire
Post by: Dan on October 30, 2017, 09:00:39 AM
I recall thinking the same guess as her, and telling her on set afterward that I did not know the answer.

Title: Re: Millionaire
Post by: Jonathan on October 30, 2017, 01:25:20 PM
Really? Larry Doby? I've never been more sure that the show is rigged.

When that question came up on the screen, did you think to yourself "OK Dan, it's go time!"?

I'd think the same as you, except that we never once told them that I have Ohio roots. As far as they knew, I was from NY. They didn't ask for a lot of information on the +1 except "what kind of trivia is Dan good at?" and she did tell them Geography and Sports. So if it's rigged, they rigged the $100k question for me. But I just don't see it.

The producers spent a lot of time beforehand telling the contestants how they have no idea what the questions are, they have no control over them, they aren't written by them or anyone there - they are written ahead of time by an entirely different set of people. Which makes sense.

When the question came up on screen, knowing my wife's strengths and weaknesses, I did get very excited and turned to the random audience member sitting next to me and whispered, "oh, she better call on me for this one!"
Title: Re: Millionaire
Post by: Kwyjibo on October 31, 2017, 01:16:03 PM
Wow, I would have narrowed that last question down the same as she did.  Wise move walking away there.

I'll have to go back and look at the tape and see if I can see you do that.

And one thing's for sure - both of us had A LOT more hair when Randomville started.

Totally! I miss my hair.

They sent the two of us into "Hair and Makeup" and I got very excited for the hair part.

Sadly, the Hair lady just sent me directly to the Makeup lady.

More importantly, Dan...what is the status of those otters?
Title: Re: Millionaire
Post by: Dan on November 06, 2017, 10:54:41 AM
Well, the question was, what would you do if you won a million dollars? and she didn't win a million dollars. So the otters have turned into plushies.

There are currently five plushy otters on our cat tree.






Random: did you know that the collective noun for otters is a romp?
Title: Re: Millionaire
Post by: Jonathan on November 06, 2017, 11:39:51 AM
I gotta tell you, I feel let down. $100,000 could buy a lot of otters.

Plus, an otter sanctuary seems like a very Brooklyn thing to do.

Double plus - was there supposed to be a picture of those otters? Because there needs to be a picture.
