WHo are everyone's picks for the best contestant(s) of 2004, Kenjen, Invisioners, or otherwise.

Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

Well, skipping the obvious answer, I'd have to go with Matt Ottinger, who put up a great fight on J! against KenJen (wonder what Matt's up to these days), and John Holder on Wheel.

Depends on what defines best.

Likeable or if they play the game well.
Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here. And yes, I did park in Syd Vinnedge's parking spot at CBS

Besides Ken Jennings, there was Robert Essig, Tom Walsh and Amy Remple.

Ken, of course, but also those that really gave him a run for his money too [including Ottinger, of course]. I'm wondering if I should count Nancy Zerg, as well.

Worlds are colliding. I'm agreeing with Bandit.

Bob-O Essig...being in the studio for that ep, it was damn good TV.

I'll add the guy who won a quarter mil MeredithMillionaire..... John Castellano  from Staten Island.... a nice guy who brought back memories of what WWTBAM was all about ..... average people on tv getting a chance to change their life....

Any contestant who knows the rules of their pricing game (exception given to Half Off) on TPIR.

And BTW, congrats to our own John Holder who earned POTW honors from Stosh.

My honest opinion is that they should put a "rules of the game" question on the application/questionnaire you fill out (SSN and the like) when you are in line.  People who don't know what they're doing, and all the "PICK ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" shirts are making TPiR unwatchable!
