Hello everyone, and welcome to www.howtowingameshows.com!
I’m Stephen Hall. In August 2005, I was a contestant on the Australian game show Temptation. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, Temptation was based on the classic Sale Of The Century format, where 3 contestants compete to answer general knowledge questions, in a series of fastest-on-the-buzzer rounds. I won on 7 consecutive nights, becoming the show’s second Grand Champion, scoring a total of $672,357 in cash and prizes.
Then, in February 2006, I competed in Australia’s Brainiest Quiz Master; which pitted 10 former quiz show winners against each other, including winners from Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. I won that as well.
Since then, I’ve frequently been asked questions such as:
- What was it like?
- How did you do it?
- Have you got any inside tips?
Well, yes. I have. And that’s why I’ve created this website. My aim is to share my game show experiences, learn about yours, and answer your questions. I’ll provide (hopefully helpful!) advice if I can, and let you know about some of the mistakes I made along the way, so that you won’t have to.
I’ve got a lot of ideas for upcoming posts, and at this stage, I intend to post on a weekly basis.
I’m also working on an e-book, which will feature my interviews with game show winners, game show experts, behind-the-scenes figures, game show producers… and even game show hosts!
My ultimate aim is to make www.howtowingameshows.com a really comprehensive, user-friendly and consultative site on the subject. And so, in a spirit of starting as I mean to go on, I’d like to throw this over to you.
What would you like to see on this site?
And do you have any questions that I may be able to help you with?
As I said at the start…. here goes! And once again, welcome.
