Title: G-R.net Members appearing on other game shows
Post by: jhc2010 on March 13, 2021, 09:15:56 PM
Are there members on this board that have appeared on other game shows? I know those gold stars indicate who has been called to "Come on Down" but has anyone appeared on another show? If so, what show and what did you win (if anything?)!

Clock Game John on Wheel of Fortune comes to mind.

I was on (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B83PpMSk9m0) The $100,000 Pyramid Season 4 premiere on ABC, which aired on June 9, 2019. I won $50,000 in the Winner's Circle and a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas in the Mystery 7 (which I went on a month before lockdowns in 2020). Also, I believe that I currently hold the Winner's Circle time record in the Strahan era of the show.

I was also in the at-home audience video wall for Let's Make a Deal on the episodes that aired January 25, February 2, and February 24, 2021. I was not picked to make a deal, however.

goldroadfanatic, how many episodes/tapings do they give each virtual audience member? What is the audition process to get on?

thepriceis_J and Punchboard91 were on Wheel of Fortune within the span of a few months.

If I remember correctly, I applied to a casting call back in July or August 2020. I filled out an application and I did not hear back from anyone until mid October. In that month, one of the casting producers had a phone conversation with me about my background, what I liked about the show (the ability to be at a big party and be your authentic self and let loose, something you may not get to do in your everyday life), and what my dream prize was (a washer & dryer). The producer also interviewed me about what costume ideas I had (I said a figure skater). From there, I waited a couple of more weeks for an invitation to attend a taping virtually on December 1, 2020. Aside from the long time between application and first call, this audition process went much quicker and was easier to complete than the one on The $100,000 Pyramid.

On the day of taping, I stood in front of my webcam, ready to be part of the virtual audience. We were told when to amp up our excitement, especially when Wayne may be going to the wall to pick someone from the virtual audience. We also did pickups as needed. During the commercial breaks, the virtual audience attendees conversed with each other to learn about their lives and what they hoped to win. This taping session was 9 hours long and I sat through three episodes. When the taping wrapped up, we were told to watch our email inboxes for the episode numbers and to check back on the show's website for when our shows would air. Also, they said that they may reach out to us to invite us back to a future taping if we weren't picked to make a deal (I never received a callback).

Overall, it was a fun experience and I hope to do it again in the future, in-person or virtually.

I remember J, but I don't remember Punchboard's appearance. Which one would that have been?

WooWho immediately comes to my mind.

I was a contestant on 'Jeopardy!' in the '90s (two-day champion).

I've appeared on 12 different game shows - 9 on tv, one on radio and two different podcast game shows.  Tons of fun all around! Here's a summary if you'd like to see... and if you have any questions please let me know!

I was in the Mob on 1 vs 100 with Bob Saget.  I didn’t win any money, unfortunately, because I missed the same question that the contestant did.  “What do Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have in common?” The answer was “their motto” and I was in the Boy Scouts and had no idea.  Oh, well. After the taping, I got to walk around the inactive “Deal or No Deal” set which was pretty cool.

^ I think the contestant's guess was "their badge system"? It's been a while, so I don't entirely remember.

Are you trying to get on any other shows currently?

I found the video of it online, and yes, that was their guess. I don't know if they want it to be posted here, so I won't share the link of the video, but I found it.

I was "randomly chosen" as an audience contestant on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire with Meredith Vieira. I had to answer the next question after the contestant got theirs wrong. Unfortunately I got mine wrong and instead of winning $1000 I won 100 free games of millionaire on facebook. Woohoo

Not at the moment as I live in Canada BUT I'm thrilled to be appearing on air as a panelist on season two of "The Search for Canada's Game Shows" next week!
