everyone, we have... a new game!
Jason: New game! What's it called?
Chico: Everyone's familiar with the Winner's Circle on Pyramid.
Jason: Of course.
Chico: We took that concept... and turned it into a game we like to call... LIST

Lewis, Leszek, Catherine Rahm, Curtis Warren.. Jason of course... you would

Chico: Close, Gordon.
Jason: Places where you get information
Jason: Places where you get game show news
Don: Places where you could get clues of some sort?
Jason: Places where you get news on Survivor.
Chico: News sources it took for Jeff Probst to finally renegotiate his contract
Chico: I think after the tree-mail, he finally got the hint.
Gordon: It's going to be one of THOSE games, eh?

Chico: You could've stopped at show, and gotten it.
Jason: Gordon can you name them all by the clues.
Don: So, just reality show hosts?
Chico: It was actually, they all hosted a game this year...
Gordon: You always got credited for specifics on the real pyramid. I'll give you
the ones I know
Chico: Anyway, you want to name'em all or shall I?
Jason: Can I help?
Gordon: The mother is Kathy Hilton...and since you threw in game show, I'm going
to pass on the rest.
Chico: The pop star is not Jessica Simpson.
Jason: That would be Julie Chen-Moonves
Gordon: It doesn't matter who the Carolina grad is, because they are all awful.
Chico: Spin on it.

Chico: Very good, Gordon!
Jason: I had it.
Gordon: Then you should have buzzed in
Chico: Actually things Tyra Banks can do now that she's retired from modeling.
Jason: What was the feel?
Chico: Feel herself up.
Jason: She did do that this year on her show.
Chico: More than once.
Gordon: I was going to go specific, but I would have gotten buzzed again.

Chico: Don was first
Don: Things associated with Family Feud?
Chico: Right on. More specifically, Explanations for their erratic schedule.
Jump around like crazy, the Feud does.
Don: As soon as I saw "erratic taping", I thought, "Family Feud". But I became
hesitant with the next couple of clues. But "TRIPLE THE POINTS" confirmed it.
Chico: Say it for us, Don...
Don: We'll TRIPLE THE POINTS!

Jason: LOL beauty
Gordon: You suck, Chico
Chico: Thank you.
Chico: One more break, please. You're watching the Interrupting show. Big
Finish coming up.
(Brought to you by the Fierce-o-meter. For use with any episode of America's
Next Top Model. Just be careful it doesn't explode.)
Gordon: Can I use it as a rectal thermometer for Chico?
Jason: Are we not happy about that last list?
Chico: Oh come on... You've been having wrong fun like that for years :-)
Gordon: Well for starters, I would not be holding out for Deal or No Deal.
Chico: And besides, we weren't talking about you per se, just people watching
Jason: Yes, but you would hold out for Bai Ling.
Gordon: I can deal with the Sicko Madman and the desensitiztaion, but I am
insulted by the DOND comment.
Jason: Besides you still owe for that incense.
Gordon: I'll get you the incense already. I would not hold out for DOND. I would
hold out for Bai Ling.
Jason: But Bai LIng hasnt held out for anybody in years :-)
Chico: Okay, before this turns ugly...er, it's time for the Big Finish! Is there
any way Randal DOESN't win the Apprentice?
Gordon: He gets a transsexual treatment and turns into Omarosa?
Chico: Any FEASIBLE way?
Don: Possibly a major screw-up on his part in the next episode. And I don't see
Gordon: It's possible, but I don't think he would be dumb enough. Survivor - We
all sure Danni wins?
Chico: I'm sure.
Jason: Pretty much yeah.
Chico: WPT: ... we all accept Courtney Friel?
Jason: She's no Shana Hiatt...but who is?
Don: I'd wait to see how she does.
Chico: Well, she already has two shows on the air, even though season 4 doesn't
begin until March.
Don: Which ones?
Chico: Battle of Champions II and Ladies Night III.
Gordon: I would have to see her in that role., but as that position never was a
starring role, I think she'd do fine.
Don: As I was gonna say, I don't get Travel. (As for WPT, I've been watching
that on CityTV up here.)
Chico: CityTV... is there anything that channel CAN'T do?
Gordon: Any mail?
Chico: I think so...
Gordon: I got one. This one is from Dennis E. Kadlecek. Thanks for writing,
From: Dennis E.
the site. I am looking for the opening of Truth or Consequences with Bob
Barker back from the late 60's, early 70's. Is there any way you can help me
out with that? I have looked everywhere. I remember the stage having 3 sets
of curtains. I hope you can help!!! Thanks!!
Jason: Yet again, another Klauss mail
Chico: Same answer as before: go to classicgameshows.com, click on Trading Post,
and post any information you may have on the show. I'm sure someone can help you
Gordon: And since you're only looking for an opening, it shouldn't be that hard
to find a tape with that
Chico: Nah. Surprisingly, openings are very popular for trade.
Gordon: Next email?
Chico: Okay, one more from last week's guest, Bill MacDonald.
Jason: We love Bill.
Thanks to you, Gordon, Jason, and Brian for having me on WLTI and for being
so welcoming and fun. I really enjoyed it and I was honored to be asked.
Please pass my thanks on to Gordon, Jason, and Brian. Y'all made the
experience so enjoyable.
Jason: Bill, not a problem at all. You
are welcome anytime.
Chico: I think I speak for everyone when I say, "You were a consummate
gentleman!" And the pleasure was all ours.
Gordon: Bill, feel free to come back anytime you want. We do have a year's end
special, where we invite everyone back. This show may be a bit longer though =)
Chico: That's why we're holding it on Christmas Eve evening! Nice how we slid
that in there. And if you want to send us some love, we'd love to hear from you,
we always do...
Chico: We like gift cards.
Jason: Sure we do.
Gordon: If you'd rather give us letters, you can do that at
Chico: Okay, that's gonna do it this week. Big thanks to Ryan Vickers, Don
Harpwood, and Jason Block! And our good friend Rachel Kadushin has an new DVD
