Livewire! 2/16

OMadison Brunoehler: From Game Show Live!, this is.....................

Livewire! Your news.......with sass. Presented by Powerball. With more than $493 million dollars on the line, somebody's gotta get it. And it's not anonymous. 

And now from our Game Show Live! Newsroom, here comes Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to Livewire! After having a special Valentine's day show, we're back on the regular doing all the newsy stuff. So put away those v-day cards sent by your loved one  and........ let's.................get wired!

I can't breathe!!!!

Game over for Omarosa?
The Big Brother: Celebrity Edition houseguest was sent to the hospital on Friday night. Details are not entirely clear, but our sister site Deadline reports that the former Trump White House staffer suffered a non-serious injury during a Head of Household competition that occurred off screen.
Fellow contestants Ross Mathews and Marissa Jaret Winokur could be heard discussing the HoH challenge on the Big Brother live feed (as seen below), which apparently involved the celebrities having to bowl while under self-inflicted dizzy spells. (Yes, really.) Mathews at one point implied that Winokur “knocked her out,” but it’s unclear whether he meant that Omarosa was knocked unconscious or knocked out of the competition.
CBS has released a statement, confirming that Omarosa suffered an asthma attack and has since returned to the BB house. The health scare will be addressed during the next episode.

Rachel Riley admitted that things get so wild on Channel 4 show 8 Out of 10 Cats does Countdown, that if some scenes were to air it would end all of their careers.
Rachel, who has been dating Strictly professional dancer Pasha Kovalev since 2013, revealed that Jimmy often has crazy parties which has seen her let loose in his hot tub at 4am.
"Each show takes three hours to record and is cut down to 45 minutes," she told the Mirror.
"So the stuff on the edit floor can be even funnier."
Rachel explained: "The lawyers have to be ­involved to make sure some of it doesn't go out because it would end all of our careers."
And once the cameras stop rolling the party doesn't stop for Rachel.
She added: "Jimmy throws a good party ­regularly. He's a really good host. I wouldn’t name names but there are certainly people who’ve done all-nighters there and then gone to work the next day.
"I'm lucky that I haven’t often been working the next day, because you can end up at 4am in the hot tub – it has been known. A few hangover cures are definitely needed after that."

Ever wonder what happened to Apolo Anton Ohno? Well......

Although he hasn't competed since 2010, Ohno was employed in a different arena during the subsequent winter Olympics in Sochi — as a sports commentator for the speed skating competitions — and he'll be back for round two at the upcoming games in Pyeongchang.
And in case that weren't enough, Ohno's also written an autobiography entitled Zero Regrets: Be Greater Than Yesterday. It made it to the New York Times bestseller list, the publishing's world's gold medal standard.
Ohno has also been involved with charity work, serving as a spokesman in 2010 for The charitable organization allows donors to give money to causes they support, and then follow up to "see" how that donation has had a practical impact.

Alexa Ticked off!

For those that caught Amazon's SUPER BOWLad, they saw a glimpse of what it would be like if celebrities and personalities like Gordon Ramsay took over for Alexa. Fans of Ramsay will be pleased to learn that they will get their own chance to be critiqued by the chef thanks to a new interactive skill available now for Alexa.
Created in partnership with interactive audio company, Ground Control, the Gordon Ramsayskill is free to enable on Amazon Alexa devices and allows users to hear what it feels like to work in Chef Ramsay's kitchen and listen to him review whatever dish they've made. Ramsay has become infamous for his prolific insults on his TV shows and social media, from calling someone an "Idiot Sandwich" and a "*Bleep* Donkey," to roasting fan's photos of their food.
"I can't wait for everyone to have fun with this new skill for Amazon Alexa. I'll review any dish you throw at me." said Ramsay. "We all need to lighten up in THE KITCHENsometimes, don't we?!"

Time to check the bulletin board.

Get set to Take a Number. The Number is....

$6.399 live in a house of a game show legend. 
The longtime home of "Let's Make a Deal" game show host Monty Hall and his wife, producer Marilyn Hall, is for sale in Beverly Hills at $6.399 million.
Built in the 1920s in classic Mediterranean style, the nearly 4,000-square-foot house has a total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms, according to public records. The quarter-acre lot, in the area known as the Flats of Beverly Hills, also contains a swimming pool.

I'd like to know.....

Why is this news? 

Does anybody know what the HQ app stands for?
In a recent interview on CBS This Morning, co-founder Rus Yusupov said the company didn’t have an official answer.
That didn’t stop star HQ host Scott Rogowsky, who was seated next to him, from chiming in. “Whatever you want it to be,” he said, and then suggested the name “Hard Questions.”
In fact, Rogowsky has a habit of teasing HQties about what lies behind the acronym. This week, Rogowsky opened an envelope that promised to reveal the answer … announcing that it stood for “Humpbacked Quail.”
Even so, they were stumped as to what it is. 
HQ is fast approaching 2 million daily users, and recently increased its total pot to $15,000. The app was founded last fall by the co-creators of defunct social media app Vine and just secured a funding round of $15 million that valued the company at as much as $100 million.

In case you didn't know, Robyn Cage, our Game Show gypsy queen dropped this:

Oh and she has a store where you can buy it:

And this?

So  in honor of teh new album dropping today......we will play.......Flying Machine.

That's all for now, but remember one thing: Didn't HQ used to mean a hardware store from the 90's?

So until next time and all the on playas.

And now we start with.................

 The Opening Toss-Up story.  

Since 2002, a celebrity version of Big Brother has been speculated around the network. It was rumored that CBS was looking to air a celebrity edition in the fall after Big Brother 3 with radio personality Howard Stern speculated as a possible houseguest.[13]Chen revealed that Paris Hilton had agreed to do it and Roseanne Barr initially agreed to take part, but then backed out.[12] Barr would later take part in another celebrity spin-off of Big Brother called Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack in the United Kingdom in 2008, where she watched over a group of non-celebrity housemates for a day, set tasks and talked to them in the Diary Room.[14]
Julie Chen announced on September 7, 2017, during a live double eviction episode of Big Brother 19 that Celebrity Big Brother would air sometime during winter 2018, before the twentieth season of Big Brother in the summer of 2018. CBS later confirmed via a press release that Julie Chen would return to host the new season, and Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan will be executive producers. The season will be produced by Fly on the Wall Entertainment in association with Endemol Shine North America.[15]
On September 13, 2017, it was revealed by Chen that her husband, CBS chief executive Leslie Moonves, forced her to take a pay cut for the celebrity edition to happen. Moonves stated, "You shouldn't be expected to be paid as if it's a full series. It's a condensed version."[16]

And here we are. Celebrity Big Brother. Here are the houseguests.

The Battle with Robots......hath returned.

The epic robot-fighting series BattleBots is making its triumphant return with all-new episodes set to premiere this spring on Discovery Channel and Science Channel. BattleBots features the biggest, baddest, strongest, and fastest next-generation robots from all over the world as they duke it out for supremacy in the rapidly exploding world of Robot Combat Sports. 

The metal munching mayhem is back, from the bots to the builders, the flames, the spark and all the robot guts and glory. Each match consists of two robots competing in a single, three-minute bout in which the goal is to destroy or disable their opponent. If there is no knockout during the battle, a panel of judges will declare a victor. 

"BattleBots is the perfect union between cutting-edge science and entertainment," said Marc Etkind, General Manager Science Channel. "Having heard the call from robot fans clamoring for more action, we are thrilled to bring back this iconic series." 

"In BattleBots, anyone can be the champ, and all are welcome to apply," said Ed Roski, BattleBots Co-founder. "This is a sport for smart people where it's all about ideas and building something cool. BattleBots is a fight to the death, but no one gets hurt. It's the place to show-off your imagination, your engineering prowess and art, and your ability to make it survive - and we couldn't be happier bringing BattleBots to Discovery." He added: "In my opinion, Discovery is the TV network where BattleBots has always belonged."

The kids are back for Season Six of MASTERCHEF JUNIOR, featuring award-winning chefs Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi, as well as the return of fan-favorite judge Joe Bastianich. 

The all-new season of the hit culinary competition series debuts with a special two-hour premiere Friday, March 2 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, and makes its time period premiere on Friday, March 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

After a nationwide search, 40 of the best young home cooks between the ages of eight and thirteen have been given the chance to showcase their culinary abilities and passion for food through a series of delicious challenges in the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR kitchen. Only the best 12 female and 12 male junior chef-testants will move forward and earn a MASTERCHEF JUNIOR white apron.

This season, the kids will face exciting challenges, including a mystery box challenge with 26 ingredients, each representing a different letter of the alphabet, and a test during which they'll cook a dish that represents their family heritage. Additionally, the young home cooks will prepare a meal for one lucky couple and their guests at their wedding reception, create the perfect chicken-and-waffle dish, compete in a Blue Apron mystery box challenge and power through the fan-favorite pop-up restaurant challenge, until one talented kid is named America's next MASTERCHEF JUNIOR, taking home the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR trophy and $100,000 grand prize. 

In the special, two-hour season premiere, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun/The Boys Are Back In Town," 40 junior home cooks come to Los Angeles ready to compete for a MASTERCHEF JUNIOR apron. The junior home cooks are split up into two groups - girls and boys. All 20 girls are tasked with making a flawless medium-rare filet mignon dish, while the boys must create the perfect chicken breast dish. Only 12 winners from each group will earn an apron and a chance to move on. The competition is tougher than ever as the judges separate the best junior chefs from all the rest. The Top 24 contestants begin their quest for the title of MASTERCHEF JUNIOR in the series' time period premiere, airing Friday, March 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

'Memba this?

It's been 18 years since Kenan & Kel last graced TV screens, and 13 years since Nickelodeon's much-loved sketch show All That ended... And after all that time, we're finally getting an All That reunion in an upcoming episode of MTV's comedy gameshow Wild 'n Out. 

One of the show's original cast members Kel Mitchell has shared various snaps from the taping of the Wild 'n Out season 11 reunion episode.

Alongside Kel and Kenan, or Kenan & Kel, are fellow cast members Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server. "Kenan game face is epic in this pic!! #wildnout," Kel wrote alongside one image. "#allthatreunion on @mtvwildnout," he captioned another. 

Kel shared a number of other photos and videos, including one with Wild 'n Out host Nick Cannon, where he wrote: "With my Brothers! I got to frame this picture! "Yo Lil bro @nickcannonyour staff and crew was awesome today! Thanks for putting this all together and congratulations on filming season 11 of @mtvwildnout. 

"And I enjoyed the prayer you did with the cast before we all hit the stage! #teamJesus Continued success bro! Blessings!" 

Back in November, Kenan revealed Kel really does love orange soda as the pair 'reunited' again on MTV's TRL. Prior to that, the duo joined forces for a TV advert for movie ticketing app Fandango, and previously got back together with the cast of All That to celebrate its 22nd anniversary..

The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson is reportedly set to host a remake of gameshow Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? in the UK, four years after it was cancelled by ITV. 

The show is being developed by Sony-owned production company Stellify Media, which produces the reboot of Blind Date for Channel 5 and recently secured a Jackass-meets-Wipeout gameshow commission for Netflix. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, which was originally hosted by Chris Tarrant, previously ran on ITV between 1998 and 2014. 

Co-created by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight, alongside David Briggs and Mike Whitehill, the show still airs in a raft of international territories including the U.S., where Chris Harrison has agreed to host another season late last year.

Time for a Gamestop Game Break. Since it's Valentine's Day, answer this question on a romantic comedy:

The 1995 film "Clueless" was based on what Jane Austen novel? 

Give your brain a thinking thought while we do this Google Play music interlude from our featured performer. Once again, Strawburry17!

Now we figure it out. The answer:


This later inspired the movie as well as the ABC/UPN sitcom with Rachel Blanchard playing Cher. 

Now I wonder what our lip sync Idiotesters Kristin & Danny are up to now..........

They say good love is hard to find.....but.....

most dates end in a disaster. Introducing.....

Relationship Disasters. A month of disastrous TV shows involving dating.
Today's relationship disaster:   Married by America.

If you think "Married At First Sight" was worst.....then you're in for the even worse. 

Five single people agreed to be paired up sight unseen with strangers chosen by America. The five newly minted couples met and got engaged on the spot. This was accomplished through family members and phone-in votes by TV viewers.[6][7] The five couples were Matt and Cortez (a friendly if awkward man and an attractive/uninterested woman who later claimed she was attracted to "the abusers"), Jennifer and Xavier (cold, unfriendly blonde woman and low-key Frenchman model), Stephen and Denise (uncomfortable average guy and low self-esteem woman who liked him much more than he liked her), Jill and Kevin (NHL team hostess and Catholic "daddy's girl" and a former pro baseball player seeking a new career), and Billie Jean and Tony (party girl and general bro).
Next, the five couples were sequestered at Copper North Ranch for an engagement period.[8] Relationship Experts (Dr. Jenn Bermann, Dr. Don Elium and Ms. P.) eliminated one couple per week,[9][10] and the final two couples could decide whether or not they wanted to wed.

Ready for the twist?

In the end, neither of the couples (Jill Nicolini and Kevin, Billie Jean Houle and Tony)[11][12] opted to get married.

Shocking, isn't it?

A Fox affiliate in Raleigh-DurhamWRAZ aired the premier episode but then refused to broadcast the remainder of the series claiming that it "demeans and exploits the institution of marriage."[17]
Over a year after the show's cancellation, the FCC fined Fox a record $1.2 million claiming that an episode which featured pixelated strippers [18] and a woman licking whipped cream off a man's nipple during a bachelor party violated the FCC's decency laws[19]
The ruling underwent great scrutiny when blogger Jeff Jarvis[20] uncovered that although the FCC originally claimed to have received 159 complaints, it later admitted to only receiving 90, which came from only 23 people. Jarvis studied the complaints and determined that all but two were virtually identical to each other, meaning that the $1.2 million judgment was based on original complaints written by a total of only three people. Armed with the new information, Fox vowed to fight the fine.
The fine was ultimately reduced to $91,000 in January 2009.

So by the power invested one. I now pronounce Married by America.....a......

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is valentine's day candy. Available for a reduced price tomorrow......until they mark it down to 90%. 

Don't forget to email me at, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. Also I'm on Snapchat as MisterGSN and Instagram as Mister_WCW. We will return next Wednesday, and until we return, Play on playas.
