Two things happened this afternoon. The first is that I realized that I’m addicted to Googling the names of contestants on Family Feud. The second is that I discovered Trivial Pursuit: America Plays, hosted by Christopher Knight, aka Peter Brady.
Is it me, or are a lot of trivia shows these days lowering the bar on the intelligence level of their contestants? Which only makes them more awesome to watch. Case in point from one of today’s episodes:
Question: What movie introduced the character Indiana Jones?
Contestant 1 (probably late-20-something woman): Temple of Doom.
Contestant 2 (probably early-30-something woman): Uh, The Temple of Doom?
Contestant 3 (proabably early-30-something guy): Actually, I believe it’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
Anyway, here’s my interview with Mystery, the fuzzy-hatted host of VH1’s The Pick-Up Artist.
