A Few Highlights From Our List of Flint Game Show Contestants

  • You'll meet a man from Flint who is somewhat of a game show expert. Chad Mosher is a University of Michigan graduate who so far has made the national stage five times, beginning in 2003 when he was in 7th grade and got the chance to compete in a Jeopardy kids tournament.
  • There's also a former Grand Blanc resident whose name has been associated with a Jeopardy strategy that is used from time to time even today. Chuck Forrest appeared on the iconic quiz show in 1985, and stayed one step ahead of his fellow contestants by jumping around the board, rather than revealing clues in order from lowest to highest value. That strategy has become known as the 'Forrest Bounce,' and it's been rumored to be a strategy that the late Alex Trebek did not approve of.
  • But sometimes a trip to California to spin the wheel or answer some questions doesn't work out so well. In our list below, you'll meet a family from Lapeer who came back home with only memories of appearing on national TV and meeting Steve Harvey himself.
