The case is Winston v. National Broadcasting Co. (1991). It shows up on FindLaw, but registration's required there.

Interesting read, although if he had to do it all over again, he should have omitted the 3 For the Money appearance.  Who would have known?  He's probably been blackballed for this, which is too bad, he is truly a fascinating contestant to watch.

I also like that he's not busted by the network, but by someone who saw the episodes at home and knew he was on Double Dare.  Thank God there's nobody like that around here...

Great...due to a cable outage here in Key West, I did not get the episodes that were aired this past Sunday. Can anyone give me a quick recap? Was one of these the one where Ray walked out as they introed Alex? And...Am I allowed to ask if AGTOT/D?

Thanks all,
Don

That was the 2nd episode on Sunday.

A quick recap:  Ray beat Sarabeth (Sassy) $550-50 and got $100 on the Spoilers.  Ray narrowly beat his next opponent, $500-$300, IIRC.  Ray was in a double dare situation which would've cost Ray his championship if he missed, the only such situation I've seen Ray in thus far.  He won $700 at the spoilers, even though he used all 4 passes in the first 5 clues about Robert Louis Stevenson.  Ray is at $6950 and will meet a new challenger at the start of the next program.

Excuse my ignorance, but what does AGTOT/D stand for?  I can't find any reference to it anywhere else on the internet.

Don't worry, I'm not planning to use it.  I get the impression from reading here it's not well liked (I do a lot more reading than posting usually, as you can probably work out!)  Just that I'd never heard it before and couldn't for the life of me figure out what it meant.

Thanks for the info / explanation.

From what I've read, he's a fantastic contestant, and he won the cash jackpot early on in Sale's run, but the rules are in place for a reason, and he got his own back. He lied, he got caught. No soup for him.

What's strange is that it took eight years of wrangling to come to that conclusion, but that could be attributed to the wheels of justice grinding both slow and fine.

This past weekend on DD, there was a first. they went through ALL the clues without getting a correct answer in the main game with both contestants in the booths.  They both knew the answer, they just couldn't come up with Louise Lasser's last name.  Now we know how many clues there are for each subject - ten.

Any contestant who TAKES the Dare or Double Dare after the eighth clue should just lose the money automatically.

Why? Because by that point it's pretty clear the other player doesn't have an idea, unless the clue is "her name starts with L and rhymes with gasser."

Which is easy for us to figure out, sitting at home, watching both players do the tip-of-their-tongue dance and being able to hear wrong answers, but I suspect somewhat more difficult when sitting in an isolation booth with none of that information. You don't know if you're opponent is genuinely clueless or dancing around it or it's going to come to them at any second, so it's wiser to err on the side of caution, unless it's a throwaway Dare, like when you have a huge lead, a Dare would win the game, and you could care less if they get the fifty bucks.

Plus, you're eight or nine clues deep, where they start banging you over the head with it. Last night's show is a prime example: takes them nine clues to get to the Grand Canyon, and they offer the tenth clue as a Dare, which was something along the lines of "BIG FARKING HOLE IN THE MIDDLE OF ARIZONA." Even Alex knew that offering the Dare was a formality.

Actually, he screwed that up. The contestant who got it did so on a penalty clue, which means that same clue should have been the Dare clue. (I still wouldn't have given the dare, though. It was "Even Evel Knievel wouldn't jump over this one.")

Oh, and since the original topic was which episodes air, I checked Steve Beverly's site. I don't remember the number, but the show that should follow next week's second episode will be skipped.

I'd like to point out for the record that last night's double feature displayed some of the most stupefyingly bad strategy ever seen in taking on the Spoilers. As much as you can't afford to play conservatively with your pass allotment, you can't afford to give away clues like "The Creation of Man" for Michaelangelo, or the "Show ends with one man clapping" for Laugh-in.

And for their effort, the two champions won all of $100 and $200 in the respective bonus games.
