Who’s excited about today??? ME ME ME ME!!!
I’m excited to tune in and find out if Randi is back at Kiss starting today, and to hear how the show goes. It’ll be strange at first, but only temporarily. It’s possible that they’ll bring in another host to bring more balance to the show, but I hope that Randi gets to be a 50/50 partner.
There are 5 new contests starting today, and the details for each of them is in the post HERE.
I will keep track of Red Solo Cup guesses in the post HERE.
The names called for Beat Your Bills will be listed HERE.
And I will try to keep track of how many people choose to be in the draw for the CFOX trip in the post HERE. I will refer to this contest as Vacay or Pay.
Zed’s $10,000 song is Taylor Swift’s “Style”. It probably won’t play today but I’ll be listening anyway. This game might be more fun if they played the song more often and gave away $5000 every 4 days or $2500 every other day. It’s funny how there’s a certain threshold for me – if the prize is too big, I don’t want to play (unless it’s ZFX of course); if the prize is too small, I don’t want to play (like movie passes). With the bigger prizes I feel like we have to wait too long (possibly losing interest meanwhile), and there will be a bazillion people calling so it’ll be impossible to get through anyway. On the fun-factor scale, this one is only fair-to-middlin’ for me. There’s no brain power required, no challenge (other than to get through after the song ends), and very little excitement (it’s concentrated, your heart racing only for the 20 minutes you are madly redialling). I much preferred Gold Digger – spreading the wealth, keeping me engaged and interested, playing multiple times per day. Loved it!
In contrast, Rock 101’s song (Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting by Elton John) is going to play almost every day. It’s not $10,000, but the prize is decent and there is instant gratification – takes less than 2 minutes of redialling to know if you’ve won or not. The fun-factor of this one could be increased too, but it’s still okay as it is.
It baffles me that Kiss was able to eradicate Kid almost completely from their site within hours, yet they haven’t removed his name from the contests. They are still showing “Dial-a-Date with the Kid Carson Show” and “Kid’s Thousand Dollar Tag Team”. Odd. *shrug* I took Tag Team out of the schedule, will put it back if they play it today. Hopefully they’ll bring in NEW games to play with the new morning show!
