I’ve told folks before that I was on a game show, Greed, which came on Fox back in 2000. I was on the “College Rivalry” series of episodes. Altough I didn’t win anything, I had a great time. It was fun going through the process to get cast on the show. As a college freshman, it was cool to get flown out to Cali, get paid a per diem, be on national television, and meet other college students from around the country. I’m still salty about the loss and even more salty about the reruns on the Game Show Network (I looked so jacked!). Anyway, people always ask about the questions we were asked. Well, here’s how it went down:

For $25,000 – Which is found on both a violin and an exotic dancer?
Ken is a Cameron Crazy! That means he gets into the Cameron Indoor Stadium for games – not an easy thing to do.

Tim lost his shorts in a rugby game. (Ouch.)

Here’s a peek at the actual show except I’m not on this clip, I watched this group from backstage
