Happy Chinese New Year!
is the middle of the 2 week Chinese New Year Celebration. In the spirit
of the new year, I will put on the swami hat and see what game show you
like if you were born in the year of the…
The Year of the Rat/Snake: You are obviously a Survivor fan. You also
like Sue Hawk and her venomous speeches on Richard Hatch and Kelly
Wigglesworth in Survivor 1. You are someone who likes to plot, but woe
be to those who betray you. Planning on betraying others though: No
The Year of the Ox: Ox's are strong, sturdy creatures who can burden a
long challenge - such as spending 75 days on a game show. You are a
Jeopardy fan and are very intellectual; but beware of things that have
to do with sending out packages.
The Year of the Tiger: Sharp, calculating, but in pursuit of
humanitarian causes. A jetsetter as well, a Tiger would be an Amazing
Race fan, to see teams attempt to race around the world and see
The Year of the Dog: A natural competitor, someone who will fare well in
both events of athletic feat and in the mental game. So what's the right
challenge for you? Dog Eat Dog, of course.
The Year of the Rabbit: Are you quick? Are you fast refluxed? Are you
lucky? Then spin an electronic board and try to avoid the Whammy,
because Press Your Luck is the game for you.
The Year of the Pig: Lose some weight. Get on The Biggest Loser and shed
some pounds. You don't want to be on anyone's breakfast menu.
The Year of the Rooster: The rooster, the only animal who's voice is
used as a tool to help others (specifically farmers) is the person that
likes the singing shows, especially American Idol. You also hope that
most of the contestants don't sound like real roosters.
The Year of the Dragon: Dragon's are known for being quick-thinking and
spewing fire. The one show that accomplishes both of these things: Match
Game, where you could argue that the people back then with the best
verbal jabs felt at home here. You could also feel at home with American
Idol…well, to see the jabs that Simon Cowell would throw out.
The year of the Monkey: Yes, we could consider 1 Vs. 100 here because of
Jake the chimp, but monkeys are also shrewd and the smartest of the
business. Hence the term 'Monkeys in Suits'…which would describe your
taste in business and deals. You guys are the most likely to turn on NBC
on Thursday nights and see what The Donald is up to in The Apprentice
after you see what Howie is up to in Deal or No Deal.
The Year of the Horse: The horse is quick-witted, determined and
inquisitive. They are also good at recognizing patterns - such as letter
structure. Something like Wheel of Fortune or Lingo would suit your
The Year of The Sheep: The Sheep, or Goat, is thought to be the most
artistic or creative sign of the zodiac. The Sheep is artistically
talented and has a great sense of fashion. You would be perfect for
America's Next Top Model, Project Runway, Top Chef, or any of those
Thus, I am done swamying for this year. If I am accurate about you,
don't send any money. I just want to try my luck at being Miss Cleo for
one day. The rest…is in the stars….
