I watched the show where a black lady was picked up. She had answered some of the questions correctly and was on her last question. She was struggling to answer and Ben did not remind her of her shout out. If he’s going to remind some of their shout outs he needs to remind them all of their shout outs. He don’t pick up a lot of blacks as it is and I hope he’s not discriminating with them or with the shout out reminders. She probably could’ve gone farther if he had reminded her but he didn’t give her that opportunity. I watched the last show before that one with four whites in the vehicle and he reminded them of their shout out that they used. They had more help but he just let the black lady struggle with no extra help till the time ran out and didn’t open his mouth about a shout out. Go figure! I don’t care to watch this show anymore.

Hate this Ben guy... Boring and appears uneducated even if he is.

Is It Any Good?

Questions are interesting, with topics ranging from geography to media. Players vary in age, ethnicity, and skill, which adds an extra appeal to the show. The hosts are likable, and his quips are funny without overpowering the flow of the game.
