I've been obsessed with Game shows since I was a boy. A love affair that started with fun, crazy games before trivia became the top draw for me.
Yeah my love for these shows started with oldies like Supermarket Sweep and $1,000,000 Chance of a Lifetime, but ever since I was a boy, it was JEOPARDY! that got me excited for Questions and Answers. I've been locked in a craze need for knowledge for that show since young, and though the TV Station stopped airing the show almost 18 years ago, it left a mark on me like nothing else. While solving puzzles by a wheel and guessing prices of grocery items dominated the airwaves, I was craving for more and more of JEOPARDY! Thankfully, there's Youtube
Which saved my life and my fix for the show. It's a very Rain Man quality of me lol. Back then, I could barely answer a thing. Now, I average score between $8000 to about $15,000. Highest score I amassed was $20,600 of pure questions. I would love to play...but I'm not an American citizen
Other shows that caught my fancy over the years, ranking 2nd would be Hollywood Squares for it's humor, while the old Regis hosted Who Wants to be a Millionaire would be 3rd. Simple times with those shows, and all were fun.
1 vs. 100: Questions were easy as heck, but the psychology of facing 100 people always attracted me.
Duel: Short, but underrated. Like a game of Poker with trivia. It had great potential overall.
So let's share, whats your opinion on quiz shows and what was your favourite?
