Gordon: It's time for the ...BIG...Finish!
Jason: Let's do it!
Chico: *plays William Tell Overture* Dancing with the Stars. Trista and Louis
got the bounce first. Who's next?
Jason: John O' Hurley just for the heck of it.
Travis: Kelly whats-her-name and partner.
Eric: Kelly and Alec hopefully
Travis: Bastage!
Gordon: Evander.
Travis: Jason, how can you say such a thing?
Jason: I haven’t seen the show so I just guessed.
Travis: Ah. Very well, you're forgiven.
Chico: For the record, John & Charlotte are the couple to beat.
Eric: Kelly & Alec dodged a big bullet after hte first show
Travis: Thankee.
Eric: except ABC i guess
Chico: Beauty & the Geek. Is it me or is Brian McFayden Seacrest lite?
Travis: It's you. Brian actually builds drama.
Gordon: It's you. Seacrest has a personality. McFayden has...a credit for hosting Cupid. Yick.'
Travis: You KNOW Ryan's going to tell us...after the break.
Gordon: Though I will say McFayden is much improved here.
Chico: And Superstar USA. Don't forget that. I want to... but I can't.
Travis: Try. You think you can.
Eric: improved after Superstar isn't saying much
Travis: He's a good reader, I'll give him that. Rather, he earned that.
Eric: Point taken, and given.
Gordon: What will you be more tired of after the Summer - Trista Rehn shows or Geek shows?
Travis: Trista.
Chico: Trista. You can never get enough geek.
Jason: Trista
Travis: GEEK!
Chico: Everyone loves the geeks.
Travis: We're so lovable, because we're underdogs.
Gordon: Ok - It's time for the MAILBOX. Do we have any mail?
Eric: Sorry Trista, gotta have more geek.
Travis: Mail time?
Chico: Okay, here's the mail from Michael Bellavilla. Thanks for writing, Michael!
Eric: Go Michael!
Jason: Yay Michael.

"Where's the best place to go to find out which shows are looking for contestants currently? Haven't been able to find one consolidated place. Do you guys have a section for it on the site that I am just not finding?"


Jason: Good question.
Travis: Craigslist?
Chico: Well, Ben Tritle, who you may remember from 21 and Jeopardy!, had a site somewhere, but either it's gone or out of date. I'll have to check here.
Eric: That's a good start. Tritle website is out of date unfortunately.
Gordon: That’s out of date. The best place to look is either or the networks themselves, as they all have sections where they are looking for contestants for their shows.
Jason: Or the shows themselves.
Travis: Syndicated shows, you have to know what show you want to be on.

Gordon:,, and are all looking for contestants on their website.
Chico: Jeopardy! is currently casting for its new season. For Millionaire and TPIR, all you have to do is show up in the audience (although for Millionaire, there is a test involved)
Gordon: Wheel is always looking for contestants and you can check where their Wheel-mobile will be
Jason: as well as,, and for tickets.
Chico: So they're everywhere. You just have to look., though, is a good jumping point.
Gordon: Good luck Michael - I hope this helps.
Eric: Sirlinksalot has casting call links too.
Gordon: I got some e-mail - and this is a fun one.
Chico: Let's hear it.
Gordon: I got an e-mail from David Fialkoff to fill out my ballot for voting for the Game Show Congress Awards.
Chico: Oooo...
Travis: Wow.
Eric: Fancy.
Gordon: The event will be on August 21st and the address, of course, is I figured that I will let you all vote - and I will send all votes to David. Hows that for a treat?
Chico: First I have to say something... The ballot is 13 questions long. If you can't stay for all of it, probably best to go on.
Eric: I'm in.
Jason: I will be here.
Travis: Quickly, please.
Gordon: This will be quick
Chico: Well make it quick.
Gordon: Let's go...
