Yesterday I mentioned I was doing something that scared me. As it turned out, that ‘thing’ stretched into today as well.
Two days, you say? The show only lasts a half hour.
You are correct. I spent two days in holding, waiting to be selected to play the game.
Holding is a small room with couches and two windows. You can’t use your cellphone or the Internet or have any contact with the outside world. The game show producers keep all potential contestants sequestered there to eliminate any appearance or chance of cheating.
I did finally get to meet Meredith and play the show late this afternoon. She is as nice as she appears; I made her laugh so hard at one point, they had to stop tape — that’s a personal point of pride.
I can’t talk about the questions I received or reveal the outcome of my game; all I’m legally able to say is “tune in next year” (which is when my episode will most likely air).
When I am notified of the air date, I’ll pass it along.
Everyone watching? Now, that’s really scary.
