  • 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 what 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 !!
