Chico:  Because what is Blake doing nowadays? That's right. Nothing.
Gordon: He likes to be baited?
Chico:  And switched.
Gordon: And drawn and quartered, apparently. Next up - some infiltration. We'll see what happens when the shoe is on the other foot - or when the contestant is on the other show. Starting with....

Blake and Jim. Could Jim last any longer than Blake on the Island - or would he have been the first one out?

Chico:  He would've been gone a long time ago. Same with any Apprentice wannabe.
Gordon: You don't think that talking about how the water could cure your ills would have helped him?
Chico:  No. Getting food, building shelter, that would help him.
Gordon: ok - next  one?
Chico:  Okay.

What if the Paolos were on Family Feud?

Gordon: Fairly well, actually.
Chico:  How well?
Gordon: The problem with them isn't that they aren't smart. The problem is that they don't get along with the other people in the sandbox. Fortunately, that isn't a requirement on the Feud, so I'll say 2 day champs.
Chico:  Okay, fair enough. Next?
Gordon: Next -

What if the Supermarket Sweep was part of the Reward Challenge on Survivor? You have 3 minutes to shop around and get all of the items needed in cultural traditions. Whoever gets the most will be able to bring everything back to tribe.

Chico:  I'd watch :) That would actually be more creative than what we've been seeing over the past couple of years.
Gordon: True. Next?
Chico:  Okay... host switch.

What if Ryan Cabrera hosted Idol and Ryan Seacrest hosted Score?

Chico:  Would we expect a performance with the Idols every week?
Gordon: I don't think it would make much difference. Ryan did make Idol, but I think that the show is solid enough to have a lesser host it and still keep the value. I think Score stands out on its own too and Seacrest would add value to an already decent show.
Chico:  Right-o. Next up?
Gordon: We've seen Rob and Amber on The Amazing Race -

What couple would you like to see the most on OPPOSITE tribes in Survivor?

Chico:  Trista and Ryan...That way.. fangs come out...Competition on...Blood spills everywhere!
Gordon: You just want to see Trista get ejected from another show.
Chico:  Yes. This is true.
Gordon: Well, at least you are man enough to admit it. Last one?
Chico:  Okay, one more. It's a freeball.

Put one contestant on But Can You Sing. You only get one. Any celebrity you wouldn't mind see singing.

Gordon: None of the ones up there. Does that count?
Chico:  Nope. Name one. Now.
Gordon: Fine. I'm going to go out of left field on this one. We'll go with Wink Martindale, because he has a gold record.
Chico:  One word. Regis. Him against Larry Holmes. That's a match. Okay, we're running damn near out of time. Let's get right to Viewer Mail, shall we?
Gordon: We got any?
Chico:  John Lee writes again.
Gordon: let's hear it
Chico:  Thanks again, John!

From: John Lee

If memory serves me correctly, I thought that on Family Feud, under the 300-to-win format, a stolen answer's value was added to the bank before the bank was awarded to the stealing family, as it says on Travis Eberle's Family Feud page. So, if that's the case, why isn't it happening with the current version?

Chico:  Might I, Gordon?
Gordon: You may.
Chico:  That rule was added when the show expanded to an hour in 1992. It wasn't in the original canon, but it was accepted until the new 300-to-win format three years ago. So, there you go.
Gordon: Sounds good. Is that it?
Chico:  That's it. And if you want to fill our mailbags and our hearts... with love... tell'em what to do, G.
Gordon: You can get me Halloween Candy!
Chico:  Aren't you diabetic?
Chico:  Well, in that case, the address is I like peanut butter cups and anything with caramel in it.
Gordon: Ah. peanut butter cups works here, too. A special thanks to...uh...Chico and Gordon! Yay!
Chico:  Yay!
Gordon: We'll be back next week with a bunch of people, and more stuff.
Chico:  We'll do better next time! Until then.. OH! One more thing!
Gordon: What?
Chico:  Tuesday, October 25.
Gordon: Ah
Chico:  Catch GSNN as we and Game Show Congress invade The Price is Right. It's a joint... joint. You know, a team effort.
Gordon: We do indeed.
Chico:  And will we rake it in? Well, you'll just have to find out.
Gordon: That's right, so until then... He's Chico, I'm Gordon. The show is WLTI. Game Over!
Chico:  Love worth spreading right there.
Gordon: Spread it
Chico:  Peace out :)
