If you guys watch the show normally, I'm on it right now! I only thought of saying Good Luck Have Batman just now. I have failed our community.
@Demoskinos: That's the best part of only winning 1000 dollars: it's not enough that you have to pay taxes. Eat it, government!
Awesome dude, as long as you get past the 1000 mark. What question\money value did you go out on? Did they still do fastest finger 1st? What was that question? I love who wants to be a millionaire easily my favourite game show.
Well done duder! My friend was on the show too, and made a really obvious mistake on a Deep Purple related question, so it's harder to be on camera and on the spot than it looks! Don't worry about not referencing GB, you had enough on your mind. Enjoy the well earned 1k!
Didn't catch the episode, but man if I'm not a fan of the new randomizer format. I understand that the constant easy climb to $1000 gets tedious when contestants keep bombing out well before $32,000 (or $25,000, I guess it ended up being), but having contestants burn their Jump the Questions and then bomb out or have to walk at the very beginning isn't much better.
gould, did you get a chance to see how the categories randomized in-studio? I've wondered if that's something you're able to judge before you start, to see if the tougher questions fell to the beginning or if the easy questions generally remained in place and use that for deciding when to use your jumps.
@PsEG: We actually figured out some tricks about that, funny you should ask. Two of my friends were on the show, too: http://www.fredericknewspost.com/sections/news/display.htm?StoryID=143660#.UK50WofAd8F
We noticed something: occasionally, they show you the categories before they randomize them. They are in difficulty order we think, from hardest to easiest. The Casey at The Bat question was my 9, and the touchscreen was my 10. Definitely my hardest categories. They don't always show it, but it seems to work.
@I_Stay_Puft: I won a thousand dollars. I'm probably going to use it to not starve.
Money is money man. I've always heard its pretty difficult to get into these gameshows, haven't really watched millionaire since Regis but do they still do the same process of elimination test?
Technically, I won 1000 dollars. That's sort of like a million?
invest it and go into hypersleep for a thousand years so you'll come out a billionaire on the other side!
granted if society hasn't crumbled and inflation goes the way it is everything else will be insanely expensive so it wouldn't matter, but anyway...
