 I liked the prospect of celebrities on TPIR. Snoop Dogg was fun to watch. I enjoyed the contestants very much. Kudos to lots of winning. Overall, great show today!

Interesting how much press this episode got.. I saw articles posted on many different entertainment sites about it. They obviously won, in that respect.

Would any of these five celebrities be BIG names?  I think most people would have at least heard of most, if not all of these people, but none of these celebs strike me as A or even B-listers.  I can't imagine the press they would get if Mike/Adam/whoever landed someone like Katy Perry or Ryan Reynolds, just to name a few...

I would definitely consider every celebrity this week to be B-list. Neil Patrick Harris and Heidi Klum may even verge upon A-list. So, to answer your original question: yes.
Signatures are overrated.

Well, even I know who Ryan Reynolds is, and I don't give two toots about movies. Of course, my view is probably a little colored since he was in The Proposal with Betty White. I did have to watch that one to see her!  :P

Yeah, I agree. NPH is currently on a sitcom for which he has received multiple Emmy nominations. I pointed out on another thread that Heidi Klum is actually ahead of Drew Carey in terms of Wikipedia article traffic. Her Wikipedia article is among the 3000 most viewed articles of any kind of the site. That's all articles - not just all entertainers or all bios. Snoop and Jenny are past the prime of their careers, but I think the celeb week participants are fairly prominent. It shows in the attention it's gotten.

Lucky $even wasn't unwinnable, but it certainly wasn't the nicest setup ever.

Are you kidding?  All ones would have been a winning strategy!

EL BUMPO!  :oldlol:

-PS 2 for the first IUFB, that's ancient history right there!
-Love the Camaro, too bad it was lost though. If only  Armando had guessed low numbers.
-That Push Over setup can't get any easier, geez. EDIT: And with the old paint job too; I wonder how many viewers paid attention.
-Plinko: Love the big win!

So in sum, a great episode. Snoop genuinely seemed to be having fun with the contestants and enjoyed playing the games. Not only that but this was a great blast from the past. It's mind-numbing to think this was eight years ago. A gentle reminder how time waits for no one.

Nothing much to say except, wow, Snoop Dogg was great!

I do appreciate that a lot of the products shown are now retired (PSP, earlier generation iPod Touch) or are from now defunct companies (Lia Sophia Jewelry shut down in 2015, Berry Factory in the CNAOS, which I'm surprised they kept in, is kind of no more, since it's now Berried in Chocolate).

For the heck of it, my shiggles CSS bids were $35,500/$28,501. I can't tell how well I would have done against the rest of the chat, but I'd take a 96 any day of the week.

The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."
