And the guy that makes it all happen, the referee of the Hollywood Showdown, the man in the front of The Line, the person who holds the key to the GSN vault,  the man about many many games, Pierre........Jason........................KELLY!!!!!!
(cheers and applause, ovation from the crowd)


Me: Hey everyone!  How's it going?.....thank you.
(runs to get the air horn but the audience sits down and the music stops)
Glad I didn't want to stop abruptly, but welcome to the big finale of GSN The Know.


(audience groans)
Yeah, I know, but it's the first step away towards our Game Show Live! renovation in January.

(audience applauds)

I know they're excited for it. Another thing I need for you to clap your hands for........Robyn Cage and her big band of Cage Masters!

(applause: cut to band)

They look snazzy, don't you all?

(light applause)

I'm proud to be hosting my first award ceremony form the Top Rope Entertainment Complex.
 As you enter, It's more than just a bowling alley, it's the largest indie wrestling complex. 6 arenas in every room. Also good for receptions and parties and funerals....yes, funerals and graduation. As if that wasn't enough, we got classic arcade games from the 80's and 90's. Plus, Laser Tag Rumble. 6 on 6 team battle. Every 30 seconds, A new teammate steps in. 15-20 minutes does not start until all 12 people have entered. Plus, A Top Rope gravity course that's lots of fun. Then, unwind and enjoy the WWE network or relive USWA, CWA, World Class, Calgary Stampede, Lucha Libre Underground, G.L.O.W. and others for you to watch while you drink over 100 different beers and wines, or like me, go soft drink drunk. We got Pepsi & Coke and Root Beer, plus drink flavors. There's even some food. Enjoy the Memphis Rasslin' BBQ Pizza or the Turnbuckle Tenders. There's even the Suplex Salads. There's even a Summer Slam Smoothie Selection and even a menu for the Little Slammers. There's also DDT desserts, but there's also....get this, Body Slam Burgers. You can order the Championship Wrestling Cheeseburger, the Bam Bam Bigelow Bacon Cheeseburger and my personal favorite, the Superstar Sloppy Joe with fries as a tag team side order. There's even Crash Cards to play redemption games or arcade games in which you can redeem for wrestling gear like tables, ladders and chairs and replica belts, or tickets to WWE live events or something from the WWE SHop or the Impact Wrestling store and more, but....

(song stops)

I tried to bore you about it a bit. Let's wake up and get on with the ceremony. It all starts with a cup of coffee and a newspaper.....but GSN wants to be your partner and here are the nominees.

(applause)

Hold your horses, we got some more. Earlier at the Fast Money Mart, we handed out more hardware than a fix-it guy.

The Award for...."Pass the remote, shorty!" goes to Friday Night Frights. It was indeed frightening.

The Award for...."Switching to Price" went to Wheel of Fortune. Thankfully it was more Wheel, but it was very recent Wheel. Guess they didn't want the classsic one, eh?

The award for...."Save it for CNN or Fox News" goes to Politicial Idiotest. Guess politics and Idiotest don't mix, eh?

The Award for...."Let's Celebrate by doing nothing!" went to Family Feud. GSN and Buzzr tried to do it, but alas......it didn't.

The AWard for "Now you see it....Now you Don't" went to Man Vs. Fly. Boring Contest....turns into an instant disappearing trick.

The Award for "Still classic Cool" went to Buzzr. Even during the changes, we can all sit down to watch old game shows.

And the final award for "Get GSN On the phone, now!" went to Sqrambled Scuares. An easy little puzzle game on Youtube where 2 combatants solve easier puzzles for some gift certificates, cash and the like. Come on GSN, make it a hit!

And now, please welcome the only East coaster who may be no blond ambition....alright fine, she is a blond ambition, it's the one & only soon to be Bonus Round Blonde Bombshell, Christa..............Nannos!





(applause)

It's the end of the show....and an era. I want to thank God, of course, my parents, Laura Bailey for voicing ADA, the fans of GSN who stuck with me the past 4 years, everybody who hated GSN right now, the hosts, the people who work on game shows, the pets and everybody else who made GSN The Know a uplifting experience. But it's not over yet. January 4th, the renovation begins. Will you be there? Until that date......I always say.......play on,playas.
