Two-Screen Experience (6/4/14)
« on: June 04, 2014, 03:01:00 PM »
Posted by the official YouTube channel. For whatever reason, it is present twice with a rather long "break" in-between.

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

The second one is for the West Coast.

From this, we got actually a few answers about things, as Adam Sandler was in the chat for the show, answering various questions throughout both shows. This is also why it is so long, as well, as the video consists of all three of the 11AM Eastern airing, the hour break in between, and then the Pacific time airing. Can't forget the boring middle, right, Vader? :P

Pay the Rent AND Double Cross are confirmed to be Sandler's creations. Rent I feel we were more sure on, but not absolutely so, Cross was anybody's guess around these parts. Sadly, various folks, myself included, asked a few times on who creates the lineups, to no response. I actually don't think this is Adam's job, but was curious on confirmation on such.

I was across the border with my family for the afternoon, so I missed today's show.  I watched the second-screen footage when I came home and was very impressed, it was interesting to see how they kept the show going during the commercial breaks and whatnot

I can tell that stage manager Doug Quick just hated having a camera with him behind the doors. (grin)

Several things bothered me in relation to this:
-During the behind-the-scenes footage in relation to the That's Too Much car reveal, one can clearly see the actual price.
-Thank you to Doug Quick for pretending that "Oh, the contestant may have won..." when we can hear where he stopped at and know what the actual price is.
-"They'll boo you in front of a national TV audience, so we don't want that." ...The audience still boos in that situation?
-...Why are they telling the Showcase contestants whether one of them has won? And why are the players being told that if they win, just go straight to their prizes?
-"After you make your first spin, Drew is gonna ask you whether you wanna say hi to somebody..." Even they know the host is seemingly incapable of changing what he says!
-After the Temptation player takes the sure thing, Drew responds with "Aw, man." ...Why?
-Just after the sixth One-Bid is won, Sandler (I believe) can be heard saying "[The contestant] went the wrong way." Yes, there are arrows pointing to the left, but the comment just seemed..."off", somehow.
-While the briefly-stuck monitor from Make Your Move was not reshot, the late-acting Costa Rica trip monitor of Flip Flop was.
-The post-show interviews with the Showcase players spoiled the outcome. And Drew could barely be bothered to show emotion when revealing the winner...?

At the very least, this indicates that Price is well-run and audiences are kept entertained.
The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

This has been the norm since sometime during Season 36, he's not going to all of a sudden drop it. In fact, when I was in line, I remember a number of people saying they have to give a shout out to this person or to that person if they make it on the show. The contestants are told this so they can think for a few seconds about who they are going to say hi to. Sure, the people may be insignificant to the majority of the audience, but it was cool being able to say hi to specific people you know.

The man obviously loves his job :) He was the highlight of the whole thing.

I am well aware of that, sir.

The contestants are told this so they can think for a few seconds about who they are going to say hi to. Sure, the people may be insignificant to the majority of the audience, but it was cool being able to say hi to specific people you know.
Players were always able to do that. Prior to Drew (and as seen here, the show) making it mandatory, the fun was that "saying hello to friends and family" was not something that every single contestant did or was asked to do, which made those who did that much more unique.

It is not mandatory, the fact that he says "Do you want to" implies there is a choice. If they don't want to they don't have to.
