One Sweet Mistake

This week.....The 2018 Wayneys Preview....

Food Network sinks its appetite into fall season.....

And where quiz apps go in the next year. All this and.....

We pay tribute to CLaire Wineland.


Madison Brunoehler: From coast to coast..............

And Across America.....and the world.........this is..............

Now here is America's favorite contestant, Pierre Kelly!!!!! 

Me: Thank you Madi2TheMax and this of course is  Game show Live! As live as it gets, as live as it happens and as live whenever you feel like it. Let's get into it with......

 The Opening Toss-Up story.  

The 2018 Wayneys are here and we preview the worst.....of the worst. Let's look at a few of them.

First off, Candy Crush. If WWE Champions were to have a game show of its own, then it would involve a few tricks up their sleeve. candy Crush on the other hand has those tricks and mini games were based off of the app itself. But instead of who could swipe the fastest, it was stipulations to slow the pace of the game sdown, not to mention the use of aerial skills that killed the show. 

Next up, Cash Expolsion. It seems that Lottery game shows have gone by the wayside since the 2010s and Cash Explosion remains the bright spot in a dead lottery game show mall. It proves a local game show has staying power and most recently, it had a few changes to keep up with the younger viewers and match the look of primetime game shows on network television.

Next up, Jeopardy! for the PS4 and Xbox One. Back then, previous generation incarnations had of course, the tandem of Alex and Johnny, but on this version, it's only graphics that made it look like a powerpoint presentation and a female voice replacing Alex. Not good. 

Moving along, Just Like Mom And Dad from BYU tv. Think the original was cringeworthy? Well, this right here is more of the same....except with much livelier audience....and a much........average couple as hosts. 

To wrap it up, the firemaking challenge from Survivor. The desciption from Game Show Garbage says this:

The 2nd entrance from Survivor in two years and while Varner's outing was bad on a moral standard, the added twist of the Firemaking challenge was bad on a gameplay standard, allowing for someone to idol their way to the finale, which happened in Heroes v Healers v Hustlers, making the votes completely meaningless. What bugged many people about this the most was that it was seen as out of the blue, unannounced and many believe it as a ploy to make Ben Driebergen the winner by the "Survivor Gods", leading to the #DevonGotScrewed hashtag trending for awhile.

And there you have it.....I guess. Vote at this link right here:

And see who is the bottom of the game show barrel.

After this commercial word,  We're hungry for food games. That's.......when Game Show Live returns. 

(fade to break)

Madison: Some members of our viewing audience will receive....

A supply of Sun Chips to go with your sub sandwich from Subway. Subway sandwiches have 6 grams of fat or less than any fast food chain in the world. So get to Subway today. Now back to our subway train conductor....Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi and welcome back. Later on, we compare Alien or Predator.....or The Terminator or Jason. 

'Tis the season for frights and delights, as Food Network rolls out two returning series, one all-new competition, plus five sensational specials capturing the Halloween spirit for over 20 hours of thematic holiday programming. The lineup features new seasons of fan-favorites Halloween Baking Championship and Halloween Wars, along with new Halloween-themed specials featuring some of Food Network's biggest stars, including Duff Goldman and Trisha Yearwood.

On Sunday, September 30th at 8pm ET/PT, viewers get a behind the scenes look at the weeks and months leading up to the best pumpkin carvers, cake and sugar artists entering the Halloween Wars kitchen, on Road to Halloween Wars. Year round, these gleefully ghoulish geniuses work to hone their craft, with dreams of supreme victory. From points near and far around the globe, find out who has what it takes to be chosen to compete in the new season of Halloween Wars, which premieres on Sunday, September 30th at 9pm ET/PT. Jonathan Bennett returns to host as six teams each made up of an expert pumpkin carver, a cake artist, and a sugar master battle it out over five episodes to create Halloween-themed edible displays that are as scary as they are delicious. Each teams' creations are judged by award-winning cake decorator Shinmin Li, horror film special effects master Todd Tucker, and a rotating panel of celebrity guest judges, including movie director Mick Garris, Gaten Matarazzo (Stranger Things), and more, to determine which team takes home the grand prize of $50,000! And don't miss Halloween Wars: Even More Monstrous Scares, premiering Sunday, September 30th at 10pm ET/PT.

It's time to dig up even more of the creepiest ghosts, scariest witches, werewolves, yummiest treats, and most mind-blowing displays in the history of Halloween Wars.
This Halloween, Food Network is putting the haunted back into haunted house with the thrilling competition Haunted Gingerbread Showdown, premiering Sunday, October 7th at 10pm ET/PT. Over four episodes, host Sandra Lee pits nine of the best gingerbread artists in the country against each other to create spooky gingerbread masterpieces that embody the season. Judges Jamika Pessoa and Jason Smith are joined by rotating judges, including the "Mistress of the Dark" herself, Elvira, to determine the winners of the first three heats, who will square off against each other in the finale for a chance to win the ultimate Halloween treat -- $25,000 and to be featured in Food Network Magazine. But beware, these aren't your grandma's cute gingerbread houses. With surprises lurking around every corner, these wildly haunted original creations tell a darker story.
There are even more outlandish and spooky cakes on the hour-long special Halloween Cake-Off, premiering on Monday, October 8th at 10pm ET/PT. Cake master Duff Goldman hosts this unconventional competition where four professional bakers must prove their expertise in the studio kitchen and within their own bakeries. For the first challenge in the studio, the bakers create cakes incorporating a surprise selection of candies and treats, but one will be ghosted from the competition. With three remaining bakers, they head back to their bakeries to design, bake, and construct an elaborate Halloween-themed showpiece cake that transforms from good to evil by either moving, bursting, shattering or even melting. The one that impresses judges Waylynn Lucas and Pichet Ong with presentation, transformation, and taste, will take home $10,000 and be crowned winner of the Halloween Cake-Off! 

Every weekend, I preview what is to come on Next Wednesday's edition, but we at Game Show Live! will give you next week's Starting Line.

Buzzr Concentrates itself.

The story on our next edition.

TruTV has ordered an additional 16 episodes of Paid Off with Michael Torpey, a comedic game show that helps contestants pay off their student debut. Torpey hosts and co-created the show, along with Cowboy Bear Ninja. The new 16 episodes will go into production in the fall.
Paid Off sees three college grads, saddled with student debt, competing to answer trivia. One winner gets the chance to win the exact amount of student debt on their tab. The show debuted July 10.

"Michael's genuine passion for helping people and raising awareness for the crippling effects of student debt is undeniable and we're proud to do our small part, further this conversation and give away more money!"

And finally, the next best bachelor since Jesse Palmer.....

Colton Underwood burst onto the scene during season 14 of "The Bachelorette." It was his good looks, love for dogs and vulnerability that charmed not only Bachelorette Becca Kufrin, but all of Bachelor Nation. This former NFL player made a play for Becca's heart but was sadly sent home after professing he had fallen in love. Now Colton is back and ready to capture hearts across America yet again when he returns for another shot at love, starring in the 23rd season of ABC's hit romance reality series "The Bachelor," when it premieres in January 2019.
The announcement and Colton's exclusive appearance were made on "Good Morning America" this morning.
Colton, 26, was best known for his candor when speaking about his virginity and had America standing by him when he discussed the sensitive topic during his emotional breakdown on "The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All" reunion.

Whether you guys like it or not, it's time for......

Buzz-GSN where we ask you guys on the GSN facebook page everything and anything.

becky Keppler Jenkins will start it off.

"Thanks GSN for bringing back our 8AM Match Game. Appreciate you listening to your viewers. 

That's sweet. On to James Williamson.

"Say GSN Buzzr got the Rights To Classic Concentration you have been since 1994 and Buzzr got the rights to rerun in JUST 3 years?
Ive just lost faith in you GSN."

That's must had a blow to the channel. Next is Adelle Sloan.

"With GSN, my mom and I have lifetime access to game shows like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Wheel of Fortune, Family Feud, Cash Cab, Chain Reaction..... Millionaire and Chain Reaction can easily be put back in the afternoon timeslots and we would love to see Jeopardy! being brought back."

GSN tried Jeopardy....and didn't work, but the past ones did. On to Lana Kay Dotson.

"Thank you so much for bringing back Match Game back at 8, makes my mornings so much better."

Larry Matthews goes up.

"Are you ever going to bring back: Skin Wars & Hellavator ? I liked both shows?"

To put it:

Nope. On to Amy Fullen Lullen.

"Ever consider changing the network’s name to The Family Feud Network? Does anyone thank you for airing FF hour after hour after hour? I change the channell anytime I see it...which is quite frequently"

Not quite. It's because Feud raises the ratings book everyday. Ben Moreno is up.

"Bring back more retro game shows. Cut family feed in half. You play it way too much. GET RID OF THAT CAROLINE TALK SHOW!!!!! WHY IS THAT EVEN ON GSN.

It's what GSN has been lacking the last few years. All Caps Alert!

This time it goes to Andrew RObertshaw.


Just why? Bill Mazzoli Jr will wrap it up.

"Hey stunads, why don't you put Baggage back at 2 AM and throw Idiotshow on instead of those super stunad infomercials at 4 or 5!!!!!"

It could happen. 

Now we go to a Gamestop Game Break. Look at this screenshot of a 1984 PYL episode with 3 answers. 

The question is: To what Early film star's grave did the famous Lady in Black make regular pilgrimages to in order to place a single red rose on? 

We'll give you the answer as Game Show Live! has a world premiere:

It's the mini series premiere of teh web series Super Single starring our very own remote control redhead, Christa Nannos.

As for me and my Mountain Dew Code Red, here's the answer:

When she was 14, according to an account Miss Flame told many times, she was deathly ill. Several times Valentino, as a favor to her mother, went to her hospital bedside and placed a red rose in her hand.
''You're not going to die at all,'' he was said to have told her. ''You are going to live for many more years. But one thing for sure, if I die before you do, please come and stay by me because I don't want to be alone.''
Miss Flame recovered but the actor died in 1926 at the age of 31 of complications after surgery for an ulcer and appendicitis.
For approximately 30 years Miss Flame would make a trip to the Valentino grave, dressed in black, taking a single red rose.
In recent years, however, she stopped going to the grave except on a few occasions because dozens of women in black would show up at Valentino's crypt on the anniversary of his death.

Game Show Live! continues to be an all-ages experience and one fan we found a little cutie who likes a particular trivia app. Look.

Thankfully, she may be over 18 to take Sarah Pribis' job.

Last one of the day: Game Grumps is looking for smaller similar Youtube channels to audition and join them for a once in a lifetime journey to join Danny.....

Hold my controller,  it's....

The Lightning Rant. 90 seconds to talk about quiz apps in the next year  starting from.................


With HQ already a year old, we got a slew of live mobile quiz apps and we think it's getting better and better than ever. Now we got the rest of 2018 and 2019 ahead because in the next year or so, we think that HQ could go to live TV when playing from your phone thanks to Apple TV and soon Amazon will be in the online picture. That's Right will gain bigger sponsors turning it into an ultimate success story. It's pretty easy to make quiz apps a break from everyday life and in a year from now, the craze will continue to make it well known. if you want to have a cable network or whatever media company to have a quiz app, I suggest they all jump in. Pretty soon, it'll be turned into a mobile genre of today.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is a copy of Silent Hill. Because it might scares you and grows loud with every jump scare.

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.
