game shows hire actors....
So I went looking on the internet trying to find why we don’t see more people in wheelchairs on game shows and in general.
This has long been a pet peeve of mine.
I don’t know anyone in a wheelchair...I just believe there’s no logical reason why they shouldn’t be seen on TV more often...or at all.
Then, like so often happens with me, I got diverted into reading personal accounts by actors who were hired to be audience members in game shows.
I know all about people who fill audiences (I’ve participated in a few) while touring Disney, etc. I know about people who fill in seats at award shows...but I didn’t know about game show.
Here’s on such account...I find this interesting....

Fascinating! I'm not a regular game show viewer, so this was enlightening.
Guess they didn't learn from the movie "Quiz Show" huh?

A few weeks ago, I saw Kirstie Alley on an old rerun of "Password" on the BUZZR channel. She said she was an interior designer. I wondered if she decided to pursue acting after doing the show, or if the producers told her not to mention she was an actress. She was a good contestant.

There was a young man in a wheelchair on Family Feud a while back. I also seem to remember a woman being invited back to be in the audience because she had such a contageous laugh. This was a while ago but I think she was in the audience regularly.
