I’ve said before that I don’t have official information, but I have my strategies and ideas… Well, if you want official information straight from the source – Emmy winning producer Stan Blitz – who’s in charge of picking the contestants – was on the most recent episode of the awesome podcast by TPiR exec producer Mike Richards.
If you can’t listen, I think one of the big takeaways was “It’s not what you say. It’s how you say it.” But if you do have a chance to listen (and are interested in game shows and such), give it a try. It’s a nice podcast.
(There’s even an episode with awesome super celebrity whom I adore – Ken Jennings (which is how I found the podcast in the first place).)
