    I like this show, aside from the possibility of very good acting skills by the children.Some adults actually forget basic skills such as that what they have on the show. In the long run I don't believe this show is going to be terrific but just average.

    As far as game shows... hate to burst everybody's bubble.

    BUt ALL game shows have always had multiple episodes filmed same day.

    If you see a contestant 5 days in a row on a game show, its likely he was there on day 1 and maybe day two of filming... Most will film anywhere from 3 8 or so episodes of their game show or more and do editing after the fact..

    Filming itself is quick, its the editing that can take time.
    So wile episode 1x is being edited they maybe filiming 2-3-4 etc.

    As far as fake, all game shows have a element of being fake in some way.

    I wont and dont care if the kids are actors or not. Though I wouldnt be a bit surprised.

    true enough..

    most of us forget stuff once school (including college) is done.

    Some never learned what they needed to start with.

    Others will forget more than others will ever learn.

    as it is, i dont believe its fake, because many of the episodes actually list the schools the kids are from and where the $$ goes.
    The school gets the $$, not the kids.
