  • Notes

    • FLIP REPORT: John flipped the remaining cards for the second contestant at eight down. Time had been running short and the panel had not come anywhere near this contestant's line. In the mystery guest round, John flipped the remaining cards for mystery challenger Nanette Fabray at five down. She stated that she was donating her winnings to the Mental Health Fund. All mystery challengers were paid an undisclosed appearance fee of $500, but it is unknown whether the full $500 was donated to charity, or only the $50 represented by the cards. - agent_0042 (2008)

      BLINDFOLD SURPRISE: John enjoyed being able to surprise the panel by telling them to put on their blindfolds for the first game, something they didn't enjoy doing for various reasons. In this game, he likely caught the panel off-guard when he told them to put on their blindfolds, because he made his request after the short break following his opening introduction. Normal custom, up until this point, has been for him to tell them to get their masks on before going to this commercial break. - agent_0042 (2008)
