The Dob could sure take some advice from the Australian producers on forcing a loss in the Showcase. I don't know how anyone could win with 3 prizes within $300 of each other.

I'm sorry but if that's all you can comment about you seriously need to rethink something or another.

I'm curious about the Wheel. If both players went over, did the champ skip the Double Bullseye part and jump straight to the Showcase prize board?

Probably, if the first player went over they would do the same thing as they do here - give the other player one spin to try and get the dollar.

i don't think this would have been possible, if the first player went over, it would have defaulted to the second player

Host talks wayy too much to the contestant before getting on with it.  Perhaps they have more time, but I would actually rather that they just add more commercials; the talk is awkwardly dragged out in my opinion.

that's nothing, the current Portuguese version is hour-long but they play only 3 pricing games as he host wastes half of the show chatting, singing, receiving gifts and reading viewers mail. :lol:

Have you seen the 1990 version of WoF from Australia? There's a clip or two on Youtube. It's horrible. There's about as much dragged out chatter at the beginning of the game as there is during a whole game of the US version. That was hosted by Ian Turpie as well, I think.
