Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Pyramid

Answer: Dick Clark

Debuting on CBS in 1973, "Pyramid" has found its way to several different networks, often with different hosts, but the original iteration, "The $10,000 Pyramid", was hosted by Dick Clark. Clark would end up hosting the show all the way through the '70s and '80s, ending his run with "The $100,000 Pyramid" in 1988.

In this show, two contestants would be paired with a celebrity and the pairs would have to take turns trying to convey words through association. Other later hosts of this show included Donny Osmond and Michael Strahan.
2. The Price is Right

Answer: Bob Barker

Perhaps one of the most beloved TV hosts of the twentieth century, Bob Barker was a game show host as far back as "Truth or Consequences", which he started out on in 1956. He would transition into his role as host of "The Price is Right" in 1972 and hold that role until his retirement in 2007, being succeeded by TV actor and host Drew Carey. Notably, Barker was a big proponent of animal rights; he would end each broadcast with a reminder to viewers to spay and neuter their pets.
3. Weakest Link

Answer: Anne Robinson

Anne Robinson hosted not only the original BBC version of "Weakest Link" in the UK, but the NBC version of the show in the U.S., covering both throughout the 2000s. Her tenure as host in the UK would last twelve years before her contract ended in 2012. Nonetheless, Anne was a publicly recognized figure known for her shrewd, no-nonsense attitude towards contestants, often being insulting towards their capabilities on the program.

In the U.S., her role would later be filled by Jane Lynch, who used much of the same attitude on the TV show "Glee".

In the UK she would be followed by Romesh Ranganathan.
4. Deal or No Deal

Answer: Howie Mandel

Premiering in 2005, "Deal or No Deal" featured Howie Mandel for its full original run of four years and while he had little to do but fuel the probability dilemmas faced by the contestants, his role was still critical to the show. In this game show, players selected one of twenty-six briefcases and needed to remove the others from the game in any order of their choosing, all the while receiving offers from 'the banker' to purchase the supposed value of their case. Howie would go on to be a judge on "America's Got Talent" instead, landing that gig almost immediately after "Deal or No Deal" formally ended.
5. Let's Make a Deal

Answer: Monty Hall

Born in Canada, Monty Hall was one of a handful of twentieth century TV hosts who made a name for themselves beyond their hosting duties. Being the face of the syndicated game show "Let's Make a Deal", he asked contestants to try their hand at probability games, offering up prizes that players could win in small games or trade for potentially bigger (or lesser) winnings behind Door #1, Door #2, or Door #3.

His name would be associated with a probability puzzle known as 'the Monty Hall problem' wherein the issue of switching to another door could or could not affect probability of a win. Hall would retire in 1986 and pass away in 2017. Wayne Brady would pick up the mantle for a revival in 2009, hosting for more than a decade.
6. Wheel of Fortune

Answer: Pat Sajak

Though Merv Griffin's "Wheel of Fortune" debuted in 1975 and was hosted by game show mainstay Chuck Woolery, the most popular iteration of the show was the nightly syndicated version hosted by Pat Sajak and Vanna White (and commencing its run in 1983).

In the game, players spin a wheel loaded with number values and prizes and take turns asking for consonants and vowels in Hangman-style puzzles. The person who accumulates the most cash and prizes moves on to a solo puzzle bonus round. In late 2022, Pat Sajak became the longest-running game show host in American history.
7. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

Answer: Regis Philbin

Though numerous people would step in to fill the host's chair on this ABC game show that hit it big upon its debut in late 1999, Regis Philbin was the first major face to ask the fifteen questions leading to the million dollar prize. It was a seat he would retain until stepping down in 2002 when the show would start making moves into syndication; Meredith Viera would actually host the show for a longer tenure than Regis. Regis would also end up hosting "Million Dollar Password" on CBS for one year.

He passed away in 2020.
8. Family Feud

Answer: Richard Dawson

Although Richard Dawson started his game show career on "Match Game" as one of the show's six celebrity panelists, his success there led to a long stint on the ABC game show "Family Feud", which saw families of five face off to answer questions, the answers of which would correspond to polling done for groups of one hundred surveyed people.

The show has been one of daytime TV's strongest and the hosts have rotated regularly since with Louie Anderson, John O'Hurley, and Steve Harvey also filling the role (amongst others). Dawson passed away in 2012.
9. Jeopardy!

Answer: Alex Trebek

Canadian-born TV host Alex Trebek hosted numerous game shows throughout his nearly fifty-year-long career but his most famous position was as host of "Jeopardy!" for thirty-seven years, filling that role until his death in 2020. In this position, Trebek provided players the questions and answers for the Jeopardy, Double Jeopardy, and Final Jeopardy rounds five times a week, making the series one of the most famous trivia shows of all time.

He was succeeded by a rotating cast of hosts upon his passing with Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik taking the mantle permanently.
10. Match Game

Answer: Gene Rayburn

A panel game show created in the 1960s, "Match Game" had contestants trying to guess answers written by celebrity panelists for the chance to win money. The original versions of the show were hosted exclusively by Gene Rayburn until 1983 and he would finish hosting on TV altogether in 1990.

This being said, Rayburn also ended up acting as a panelist on other game shows like "What's My Line?" and "To Tell the Truth". Rayburn would pass away in 1999.
