I do wish they could record the show for at least the hot seat people. They actually stopped that show my sister was on because a guy was video taping and would not put the camera away..

That's ridiculous. It's probably because they re-use a lot of the questions and don't want people "prepared" so they have a better chance at winning the cruise.

Let's hope you also have a James Bond budget for those things

I don't have his budget, so I don't have any of his cool toys either. :)

At least I have his looks 8)

I've never seen them stop the show like that and I've attended way more than my share. I wonder if the guy thought your sister was hot or something. :wink:

You still haven't answered my question though. How did she do?

If you think that is ridiculous, you'll love this one. Once when I was in the Hot Seat, a friend of mine was trying to write down the questions so we could remember them for later. They told him that he wasn't allowed to do it.

As for reusing questions, I can vouch for that. I haven't seen a large percentage of repeats, but I have definitely seen a few questions come up more than once. One question I have seen come up 3 times and the Hot Seat contestant has missed it each time. In case it comes up again, here it is (I know two of the choices are the ones they used, but the other two may not be). Answer at the bottom of the message.

The Taj Mahal is what type of structure?

A. Palace
B. Museum
C. Church
D. Mausoleum

Also interesting is the fact that when I've seen questions repeat, they often have had a different point value. For instance, I was asked who "The Boys of Summer", the book by Roger Kahn, referred to for either 8,000 or 16,000 points once. I later saw the same question asked for 64,000 points.

S
P
O
I
L
E
R

S
P
A
C
E

The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum. Shah Jehan, the fifth mughal emperor, built the Taj Mahal as a final resting place for his beloved, Mumtaz Mahal.

The Boys of Summer, also the title of an '80s song by Don Henley, is a name used to describe baseball players.

Wow, I was off base with the Taj Mahal question.

There is no way that could be his reason for video taping....

I am working on a 'trip report' to give a quick rundown of the whole week. It will be included in there. 8)

Is it one of those jokes where you wake-up at 3 AM and just burst out laughing? :)
