Just for fun...
If you could go on any tv game-show (even if it's not currently on the air), what would you pick and why?
Up until a few years ago, I would have definitely picked The Price is Right because I felt like because I both watched it almost daily and was an avid couponer, I had a really good shot at doing well on guessing prices of the type of objects they had on there pretty closely. But I haven't watched in years now, and I no longer coupon or pay close attention to prices.
I think I'd like to be on a trivia game like Mental Samurai, but Wheel of Fortune is probably a better fit lol. But my final pick would be something that is almost totally luck, as in Press Your Luck. No Whammys!
I know I would NOT do well on something that involves physical challenges under pressure like Wipe Out or even Minute to Win It even though it looks like being on them would be much more fun!
I listen to a podcast called Good Job, Brain which is a trivia type show. They did a bonus episode recently where they had guests talking about being on game shows - how to get chosen, how to prepare, what happens back stage. It was really interesting

Game show: Press Your Luck, all day. It's the best (for fun/luck) game show to have ever been on TV, although I don't like the host on the reboot (Elizabeth Banks, I think?). I'd love to be on Jeopardy too, but I'm not smart enough/don't know enough random things. Wheel of Fortune looks fun too, but Pat Sajak is annoying.
Reality show: Survivor, although I'd probably die out there, lol.
We watch TPIR sometimes, so definitely that. We discuss TPIR psychology and know some game tricks (you can almost always win Cliff Hanger using $20, $35, $50).
I enjoyed Amazing Race when it started, but I would need to learn to drive stick and I would have to do all the eating challenges (DH has a sensitive stomach). I also do not think we do well in stressful joint tasks.
We watch Jeopardy every night, so we know we are not good enough but we know exactly what we would need to study (Shakespeare, the Bible, Canada). We joke that the science, sports, and math questions are easy (to us).
I'd like to practice $x pyramid and Secret Word. I think it would be good mental gymnastics.
Lingo! I forgot about it... cool show, and right up my alley.
Years ago I would have said Name That Tune, but I am not as well versed on more current songs. The music that I do know, I can often name in one note, or if the clue is good enough, zero. It drives DH nuts. lol
