Title: Lingo
Post by: HairMetalLives on July 09, 2004, 03:52:16 PM
How many seasons did "Lingo" shoot with that bimbo? I forget her name, but were they finished after that season or did they shoot more?

Only one season has been shot with her so far. No one knows if it will return for another year. She is not a bimbo BTW.

 Does Dusty Martell qualify as a bimbo?  No.  And neither does Stacey Hayes.

Crapola. Name one thing she does on camera that couldn't be done in the wings.

 Chris is right...

Although I wouldn't necessarily call her a "bimbo", she serves no purpose except to be eye candy.

 I've always thought that she does NOT infact act as the judge, but is getting those kinds of things on her little screen there. Is this true? By the way. Who's Dusty Martell?

I think it's done in the wings anyway....she often glances offstage when the camera's on her. Seems to me like she's looking for a cue card or something.

Does Dusty Martell qualify as a bimbo? No. And neither does Stacey Hayes.

Dusty Martell was there because of a rule that game shows filmed in Canada had to have at least one Canadian in an on-air role. Another show affected by this rule was the New Chain Reaction, which showed announcer Rod Chalabois on air each show---Chalabois wasn't seen when Blake Emmons hosted because Emmons filled the Canadian quota. It's been brought up here before.

I'm sorry, but Stacey just comes off as a goof trying to sound intelligent. Let's see her do one show without Phil Gurin or whoever is offstage holding her hand and then see how good it is.

Dusty Martell was the model on the original Lingo who served as much purpose as Stacey does now.

I doubt that screen does anything. Like I said above, she often looks offstage for help when called on for a ruling. It would be much more efficient [not to mention smoother looking on camera] to show her the answer on the screen, but for whatever reason they don't.

There's a screengrab from one episode floating around where she was called on and the camera promptly took a wide shot from behind her and caught her screen with something other than the Lingo logo on it, but I don't quite buy it. I don't remember them using that shot for that particular instance ever again [it was the shot when the board goes up] I know it sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory, but who knows---maybe they put it on the screen to make it look good?

It's not like she's the only problem with Lingo now anyway. The new set looks like someone just took a bunch of neon circles and randomly threw them around the set. Not to mention that a Millionaire type set just doesn't fit the kind of game Lingo is.

 I think she is a "b-i-m-b-o, " or more to the point,
a "b-i-m-b- ette". However bimbo is the word of choice -
it's five letters.

She DOES serve one purpose. At the end of the shows,
Chuck grabs onto her hips like a life preserver.

I think she is annoying.

Post by: adamjk on July 09, 2004, 08:23:16 PM
There's a reason for that. In Stacey's own words from the GSN Boards:

Hello,
The reason Chuck and I stand so close with our arms around each other at the end of every show is because it is a very tight camera shot and also chuck's arm has to cover my mic battery packs from cameras view. There is so much more to shooting a T.V. show than people realize. I do understand how it is easy for people to misinterpret.
Thank you for your support!

Brandon Brooks, as I'm not calling every female in the world a "bimbo," just Stacy. How does she seem together in the head, mind you? She's just a blonde figure head trying to attract young viewers. And as a young viewer, I was not impressed. She adds nothing to the game. On camera, she appears to have the inteligence of a baked potato. She might be sharp as a tack off stage when not playing a "bimbo" on TV, I don't know. Would I be suprised? No, actually, I wouldn't. She might be TOLD to act like she does.

 So you've concluded that she's an empty-headed tramp because she has a job on Lingo, because that's what a bimbo is.  If you do, then you're a judgmental, thick-headed person.  Besides, who are you to put someone's job down when you are seeking one yourself?

You know, Mark (do you mind if I call you Mark?), I don't think it's youth.  I'm only three years older than he is.  I think it is just verbal diarrhea.

I may be wrong, but I seem to recall that Stacy's wardrobe is provided by either a retailer or a fashion designer.  In that case, she would wear what she's told.

Stacey adds nothing of real value to the show.  However, she also takes nothing away from the show.

Personally, I don't see what's so bad about her.  At best, she's eye candy.  At worst, she's "just there."  But I don't see a reason why many people get into a fit, considering again, she's simply there, not really doing anything, taking nothing away from the already-existing game.

 You honestly think she's sitting there typing five-letter words into M-W.com to see if they're legit? You REALLY think that? Are you THAT dense?

Even if she WAS actually the acting judge (and she's not), let's say, for example, that she was 5'2" and 250 pounds. Do you think she'd be on camera doing that job then? Hell no, she would not be. She'd be every bit as competent TO do the job, but she would be stuck off in the wings.

She's there for one reason and one reason only: to be a hot piece of ass. She has NO other reason to be in an on-camera position. Now, there is nothing wrong with that in and of itself, if she chooses to be a hot piece of ass for a living, well, go with your strengths, I say. But DO NOT try to make her into something that she simply is not.

 Bull. B-U-L-L..............L.

If that's really the case, then how did they make it thru 2 seasons without an on-camera judge? If it's really a case of timing, they easily edit out any situations where a word needs to be looked up, and honestly, I'd think having her on set to find a word would just take up more time.

Stacey fulfills her purpose as eye candy, and that's it. Other than that, I find her just a bit annoying, mainly because I think she's unnecessary, nothing personal to her.

When Bob Eubanks talked about the "golden doors" on Dream House, do you really believe that those doors were made of solid gold?

When "Range Game" is played on The Price is Right, do you really believe that it can take two days (or whatever Bob Barker's saying it takes these days) to restart the game once the contestant stops it?

When "Safe Crackers" is played on The Price is Right, do you really believe that the show has no way of opening the "safe" if the contestant doesn't pick the right combination?

Adam, you've been warned before not to believe everything you see and hear; Lingo is just the latest case.  But since that doesn't seem to be getting across, I'll ask again: how do you think the show handled the task of looking up questionable words before Stacey was there?

 No one is questioning that she is, in fact, typing words into a computer.  We are questioning your statement that this, in fact, makes her the judge.  It does not; it makes her eye candy.  The eye candy in question just happens to be relaying the decision of the real judge -- who is offstage, doing the same job he/she did (and just as quickly) before Stacey came along.

No one is questioning that she is, in fact, typing words into a computer.  We are questioning your statement that this, in fact, makes her the judge.  It does not; it makes her eye candy.  The eye candy in question just happens to be relaying the decision of the real judge -- who is offstage, doing the same job he/she did (and just as quickly) before Stacey came along. [/quote]
 I see your point. However, I intend to prove that she makes the game run faster. Here's how. I have some episodes of Lingo both with and without Stacey. I am gonna take two shows, one with and one without, and see how many words are played in the main game of both. I will post my findings, after I am done.

Wait, let me check......

Yep, jason's right. Damn. There goes the Lingo career.[/quote]
Sorry to burst your bubble there, Matt...but I speak from personal knowledge (i.e., being one myself)... weatherdudes don't fit the 'hot piece of ass' criterion.

Oh, Adam.....

1. Don't believe everything you see on TV.

2. Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

I assure you, and many others will, that she is not the judge and jury of Lingo because she 'types' a 5 letter word into an on stage 'computer'.

Sorry to burst your Stacey 'bubble'. (boy, there's a few jokes in there!) [/quote]
 The pictures in question come from a very reputable GSN poster.  And, unlike you, I believe him.

Okay I have checked my tape, and here is what I found. Surprisingly to me, in both shows, the same amount of words were played in the main game, 9 each. However, in the episode with Stacey, they were able to play 5 words, while the one without managed 4.  So take this info as you will. I will admit though, that although the one with Stacey did play an extra word in round 1, Stacey's presense didn't really make the show run that much faster then I thought she would. I guess I stand corrected.

 Having done market research as my vocation, one word of advice--two shows isn't a significant enough sample to be able to prove your point (granted, that's 14 words, but you get the idea).  If you really want to do this right, you should probably do no less than five shows of each (to account for really smart contestants which get words right away, thereby allowing more words to be played, or the opposite as well).  That at least will give you a better sample base to work from.  It's still not going to be perfect, but it'll be a great way to kill a Sunday afternoon.  :)

Good.  And I'm sure you'll find that if you take multiple shows with and without Stacey, and average them out, you'll find that there really isn't a difference over time.

She was never there to make the game run faster.  They say that because GSN isn't going to announce Stacey as "our hot piece of ass."  Unless it's Lemon doing the announcing, mind you. :-D

You honestly think she's sitting there typing five-letter words into M-W.com to see if they're legit? You REALLY think that? Are you THAT dense?

My god, you are a piece of work.

"This time it definitely looks like a dictionary program running full screen under Windows XP judging by the blue bars at the top and bottom and the gray line between two panes of white in the middle."

Yeah, that only describes 95% of the Windows apps out there. She could be wriitng me dirty email, for all you know. In fact, I can produce the dirty email to prove it:

 I'm thinking that a reasonable sample set would be no less than 400 shows. And that he shouldn't post here again until he's analyzed the data exhaustively. :)

 Realistically for what Adam would be trying to do, you could get by with 100 and 100.  Of course, given that there are roughly 85 Woolery LINGO episodes without Stacey and 65 with, right now doing it full scale isn't possible.

But for a small-scale project, it's fine.  I've had to do some number crunching on occasion with sample sizes under 10, and every once in a while you can actually make some sort of finding even with a sample base that small (it doesn't happen very often).

 Kinky.  K-I-N-K-Y.

I'll never see chocolate syrup, pineapples, or popcorn the same way again.

Does she have a sister, Chris? ;-)

Alright, I just had to jump in with my two cents here.

I have no doubt that Stacey's 'prop' computer isn't really a prop...well, most of it.. Looking at the provided pictures and some of my cloudy memory, I do believe the monitor works. But the keyboard and mouse are just props. Why, you ask? Because the keyboard and mouse are 'clear'ly (pun!) Apple-brand, and the display shows Windows XP. NO ONE uses Apple mice or keyboards with XP unless you're using Virtual PC for Mac, and I doubt that they'd waste that much money when they could spend 1/2 as much on another PC. I think the monitor is just a second display of an off-camera computer, there for Stacey to read the definition of whatever word pops up.

Now that was just WAY too easy. Sorry.

It's funny...when I said that Stacey does do work, I wasn't even referring to her "judging"...I was talking about her announcing/intros. :-)

Even with that, she still does more than some other women added to game shows.

When you think about it, the same computer program that judges the GSN.com interactive version of Lingo could be the "real judge" on the TV show. That is to say... anybody who knows how to type can type the five letters the contestants say into a computer, and then the computer can kick back either "It's a word" and light up the yellow circles and red squares, or kick back "not a word" at which point Stacey can say so and control passes to the other team. If it is a valid word, the definition can show up on Stacey's screen so if there's doubt she can read out the definition to prove it's a word.

Remember, the producers of Password after bringing in the now-famous Dr. Reason A. Goodwin quickly realized that Dr. Goodwin's magic formula for determining if a word was valid was pulling out a copy of the dictionary and looking it up. You don't have to be the guy who wrote the dictionary to do that!

What part of that function couldn't be done -- and, in past seasons, wasn't done -- by an off-camera staffer just as quickly? [/quote]
 What Stacey can do that off-air staffers cannot is interrupt Chuck.

When a player spells a questionable word on Lingo, there's sometimes a tape-stop after Chuck stutters cluelessly for a few seconds. It's a bit disjointing for the clueless Chuck to suddenly be telling us the word. The off air-staffer telling him had to either be edited out or barely audible in the past.

Now, when taping resumes, the camera starts at Stacey, who in her backdrop just happens to have LCD monitors showing both teams so that we also get reaction shots of the teams being told the ruling for the first time. This smooths out the controversy sequences quite a bit.
