They get to come back

Quote:
"Unfortunately the information our research department originally obtained from 3M regarding when Post-it notes were first sold was incomplete," Jeff Apploff, "Million Dollar Drop's" executive producer said in a statement to Access on Thursday. "As a result of new information we have received from 3M, we feel it is only fair to give our contestants, Gabe and Brittany, another shot to play 'Million Dollar Money Drop' even though this question was not the deciding question in their game.

"The revised information regarding the Post-it is as follows: the product was originally tested for sale in four cities under the name 'Press 'N Peel' in 1977, sold as 'Post-its' in 1979 when the rollout introduction began and sold nationwide in 1980. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the viewers who brought this to our attention, and we're thrilled to give Gabe and Brittany the opportunity to return to play the game," he added.

Re: Million Dollar Money Drop -- New Game Show with Kevin Pollak -- Premieres 12/20/1

^ I didn't watch that episode, but I highly doubt the contestants took any of that info into account when giving it their best guess. I suppose it's still cool that the show admitted their mistake. Heck, I hope they end up winning big this time.

Good Lord the first woman was annoying. Anyone else snicker when the second couple had the sex question and the man said something like "You can sleep all you want" as Pollak grinned devilishly in the background? What a sad ending. I can't believe they changed the final Statue of Liberty question. The guy looked like he took it pretty hard.

The shows okay but I think it will get boring fast. It becomes anti-climatic as the money shrinks instead of building. They need to add a way to get some money back. And it's sort of irritating that the host has to constantly keep reminding them to move the loot as time runs out.

Re: Million Dollar Money Drop -- New Game Show with Kevin Pollak -- Premieres 12/20/1

I was confused at how that one couple answered the Bieber question. The husband said "Justin Bieber is 16 years old", so why did they put most of their money on the first George Bush being president when he was born? I could see maybe putting some on Bush I as a safety, but for them put so much when they correctly guessed Bieber was 16 seemed idiotic. Unless they had no idea when Clinton was elected?

The worst part of that question was them putting some money on W at first. At least they figured out eventually that Bieber isn't nine years old, but it took them way too long.

It seems obvious to you that 2010 minus 16 years is 1994, and that Clinton was POTUS in 1994. Whether it is because they are stupid or were too nervous to think straight, that was not obvious to them.

Well, you gotta leave one blank. They just had no idea about American Pie, so they chose to exclude the song they didn't know anything about.

It wouldn't be the first time a new game show used actors as "contestants."

I thought the same thing on the very first episode. There's something off about them.

I was waiting for them to pull out a bag from their pocket and start counting it makes you wonder if they tailor the questions to fit the personality of the contestants. Two fat chicks and two categories are cookies and candy??? Seems too much of a coincidence.

Considering that SEINFELD popped up as a category for an African -American couple the other night, I don't think that is so.

The questions seem to be getting slightly easier .. but the last question is still pretty much a 50-50 guess.
