I will still bring it up once in awhile, but I'm more amazed at how many folks still seem to remember what I did even though it's been five years. Granted, it's not that big of a number per se, but it's still something that I find intriguing.
In a way I'm like a Sour Patch Kid. Sour, then sweet. So worry not, fair comrades. :)

It's definitely not the first thing in my "Get to know you" spiel when meeting people; however, on my dating profile, under the "two truths and a lie" banner, it's on there. It's attracted more conversations and subsequent dates than anything else I've posted.

Also, thoughts pretty much summed up in this Aziz Ansari bit right here:

When my episode was about to go to air, I brought it up with my co-workers. (I'm treating them to pizza next week.) After that, not much. Others can bring it up, and I don't mind talking about my experience.

Come to think of it, I spend more time talking about my future game show aspirations.

I might bring it up if it was more recent, but now it's been 11 years, so I never bring it up. "I won $2,000 on a game show in 2008!" sounds JUST close enough to "I once scored four touchdowns in a single game to set the Polk High record!" for my tastes.

I might bring it up if it was more recent, and maybe if it had been more money. But now it's been 11 years, so I never bring it up. "I won $2,000 on a game show in 2008!" sounds JUST close enough to "I once scored four touchdowns in a single game to set the Polk High record!" for my tastes.

It's hard to avoid because I've met so many good friends from being on game shows and I'm way too into social media. On the other hand, I don't want to make it the only interesting thing about me. It inevitably comes up when hosting game/J! nights though.
