Classic Game Show Week: Hot Potato
This week I’m sharing some memories of classic game shows.
Do you remember today’s featured show, Hot Potato?
Hosted by Bill Cullen, Hot Potato consisted of 2 teams of 3 contestants who were presented with a list of items (say, the planets). The teams would try to guess all the answers and, if they were stumped, challenge the other team.
The interesting thing about host Bill Cullen, is that he suffered a severe disability that hampered his ability to walk. So unlike other game show hosts who made a grand entrance, Bill was always seated or behind a podium and was never seen moving on the set.
