Cash Cab

<p>Who else kicks ass at this show? I'd take this over Jeopardy.</p>

<p>"Stop! Red light challenge!"
"Damnit man, I need to f**king get to work!"</p>

<p>Screw work, I'd be trying to get the money.</p>

<p>No, I know, I'm just saying the concept is so strange. Usually when people get in taxis, they are in a rush. The show pretty obviously has staged pre-screened participants.</p>

<p>Yeah, but it's still pretty interesting. I'd love to be on there. I'd kick ass at most of the questions.</p>

<p>I'm trying out for Jeopardy on Sunday, but I kick ass at both shows. :]</p>

<p>Lucky. I forgot all about the test this year, so maybe next time. What's the age limit on Teen Jeopardy?</p>

<p>I love that show :D I think its funny when people get really into it</p>

<p>Me too, but I hate it when people miss super easy questions.</p>

<p>^^^There's college Jeopardy too, if you're too old for teen. One of my friends won teen Jeopardy 2 years ago, and my sister's RA did quite well, winning on maybe 3 episodes, on real Jeopardy. There was even a clip of him on the Soup! But that was only because Joel McHale was calling him boring :(.</p>

<p>I like Cash Cab. I used to always watch it with my friend when I went to her house to "work" on projects.</p>

<p>I'm not in college yet, I'm starting my senior year in August. I guess March is my last try until college. Hopefully I'll be at UGA, UF, or Vandy.</p>

<p>I have watched it so much, I have determined that the dinging sound when the people get in - the people do not really hear it and it is added. If you look at their body language, most people just look up at the roof, and those who are looking down take longer to realize. Nobody ever has a dramatic jump when the bell sounds. The sound must be added later in order to not freak out the people as much.</p>

<p>Also, the producers and the screen in the beginning say that some contestants are pre-screened. They aren't trying to trick anyone. The way they do it is they find random people off the street, and tell them to answer a questionnaire to be in a game show, and they tell them to go on a taxi to where the location of the game show is. The people don't think anything when they go on the taxi because they don't suspect the actual taxi is the game show.</p>
