Ten infamous game show moments... kind of - VIDEO
Unfortunately, it's more a good idea for a list than an actual good list, because their definition of "Game Show" is insane. I just don't get the reasoning behind adding moments from The Bachelorette, Big Brother, and Top Chef. Especially when there are so many great moments from actual game shows that could have been added.
Some non-reality show contenders for such a list: From The Price Is Right, recently there was a guy who kept bidding 420 (video after the jump). Going back in the TPIR archive there was the time when a rather buxom woman was so excited to be comin' on down that she didn't realize her boobs had bounced right out of her tube top.
Then there is Michael Larson. He was the guy that used a VCR to figure out the patterns to Press Your Luck and then went on a 45 spin run that netted him some $110,000. How about Tom Kennedy from Password Plus trying to explain that they erased the tape of a segment of the show, complete with Wink Martindale and Gene Reyburn by his side? That's where the picture of Wink and his Tom Kennedy t-shirt comes from.
Or, there was the time when Henry Winkler set up Tom Bergeron for an April fools joke on Hollywood Squares. The contestants were just crazy. At one point, the woman burst into tears and started hugging Tom. In the middle of it all he joked, "Suddenly, turning down that job on Card Sharks doesn't seem like such a good idea."
Heck, I'd even put Ken Jennings on Jeopardy ahead of half the stuff on that list. The point being that there are thousands of moments from actual game shows that could make up a list like this. And I haven't even thought about Match Game yet. Feel free to share your favorites in the comments.
