The Newlywed Game

Thanks for the article from Adrian Waller

The Newlywed Game can be seen on satellite TV and is hosted by Carnie Wilson. It features three couples who compete against each other. In Round 1, the wives have to try to match their husband's responses for 5 points apiece. In Round 2, the roles are reversed and the husbands have to match their wive's answers. This time the first 3 questions are worth 10 points apiece. The fourth and final question is 2 parts and worth 15 points each. Therefore the maximum amount that a couple can receive is 75 points, if they get every question right. A tie will result in having to answer another question. The couple with the highest score wins a second honeymoon vacation. The questions are often sexual in nature and are used to determine how well each couple really knows each other. It is funny to see some of the people squirm at the questions and how they respond in the moment. Of course, it is great to see if they can match each other's answers and to see if a couple can come from behind to win. It offers plenty of laughs and physical harm can occur if the answers don't match.
