    Not getting paid sucks. I know that the volume of potential candidates means they can set the rules as to who gets paid but a winning contestant can spend almost half the show on camera promoting their product so they should at least get scale for essentially being an employee.

    There must be a game show exception to paying scale, but I'm pretty sure people on Amazing Race and Survivor make at least some money, even for last.

    Good episode tonight. Finally some cash handed out.

    The questions at the end didn't seem balanced. If I had to rate them on a toughness trivia scale, the two contestants had questions that were 7/10, and James had 9/10. They only had a couple of outright "Huh?" ones, and James had several.

    I wonder what they do to try to make the questions even. Not only do they need to be even, but the time it takes to ask the question should be even as well.

    I know you're kidding but these contestants are providing labor to a for-profit business. There should be some base compensation in addition to possible winnings provided besides (hopefully) a free lunch.

    Yeah, I am really surprised they don't get some token payment.

    According to some other thread I see pop up all the time, you're richer than the 49% who haven't saved anything. :p

    That episode was by far the best so far. Very exciting.

    They had two very strong contestants, both with personality. That made a huge difference.

    First contestants I've liked since that archive lady. :)

    I wonder if that entire set is real, or if lots of it is done with greenscreen. It seems too crazy to be real.

    It was real and it was spectacular.

    Fun fact, we filmed at Dunder Mifflin. The exterior of it, anyway. ;)

    Not what I expected the outside to look like. Not sure what I expected... probably more of a traditional sound stage, I guess. This looks like a boring office building (or a boring The Office building, apparently.)
