BALTIMORE - Elizabeth Etzel is excited. On Friday she appeared on national television.
Etzel was a contestant on the new video-conferencing national game show Let's Ask America.
The Mount Vernon area resident says she was called about the show after she made an appearance on MasterChef.
"I got a phone call from one of the casting people who had been at the casting for MasterChef, and they said, 'Liz, we love you. We think that you would be great on this show. Do you want to audition?'"
And, she did.
Etzel said the audition was an easy process.
"They kinda play the game with you a little bit and ask you really fun questions," she said. "They want you to be just yourself and funny and cool. So, I made it all the ay through, and they scheduled me and it was quick and easy. It was really fun and that's how I got into it."
Let's Ask America is a daily, half-hour, television game show that lets you, the home viewer, be a contestant on the show on TV from the comfort of your home via Skype. To be a contestant, all you have to do is go to the show website and sign up. Every day, four contestants will be chosen to play the game and win up to $50,000 cash via Skype from their home.
The game is simple: Let's Ask America polls America about fun and irreverent topics to find out what people are thinking (e.g. Which of these shows did a group of prison inmates say they would choose to watch in their cell for an entire year? a) "Dr. Phil," b) "Days of Our Lives," c) "The View"). Then, all the contestants have to do is correctly predict the answer. The prize money increases with each question. There are three rounds and at the end of each round, the contestant with the lowest cash total is eliminated from the game.
