Im sure its nerveracking. You enter a whole different world then your used to. Being on the other side of the TV(camera) can be intimidating. They have people that tell you wh…at to say and what not to say, dress you up and change the way you look. Things are edited so you may or may not say something stupid, that is unless they want us to hear or see that. Im sure its fun at some point to win all the money and prizes. . I think it depends on the show, if you enter as a single person or it is a team game. Some shows like 'Deal or No Deal' seem to have a excellent Team Spirit as they stay with each other for quite a few days and all seem very relaxed. An old show like the BBC's It's A Knockout just looks great fun and they win no money !!

definitely not. my guess is either What's My Line? 1950-1967 or To Tell The Truth 1956-. The 64,000 question was from the fifties 1955-1958 and it was still not the first a…nd some like that one were called quiz shows and not game shows I've got a Secret 1952 was one of the first that lasted along with What's my Line 1950. I looked some up in Wikipedia for original series dates and included them after the show's name
