It’s been a wild ride since starting here at GSN a few short months ago! It’s been a lot of fun getting to know the people who work here, the brand, the various offerings, and (of course), the games. I’ve even discovered that I’m a sucker for “The Beast” on GSN TV’s The Chase.
Which leads us right into today’s topic – trivia! Unlike The Beast, my brain does not retain information all that well, and although I’ve been fanatically answering the Oodles Question of the Day and the Bonus Trivia Question (plus whatever might be in the Daily Break), I still only answer the questions correctly about half the time. And half of those are guesses.
Today I guessed wrong on the Trivia Bonus Question (Jean-Baptiste Poquelin is not the Marquis de Sade), but, after eliminating Justin Bieberus from the question about which beautiful youth from Greek mythology pined for the love of his own reflection, I was able to make a correct guess between the three other choices. That said, there’s no doubt had Justin Bieber been alive at the time, we’d now be saying “Oh, she’s *such* a biebercist!” instead of what we currently say. (That’s right – I’m not giving the answers away here, just narrowing them down).
Here’s a trivia question for you: The little smiley face in the upper right-hand corner of the GSN logo has a name. What is it?
C). Mr. G (as in “Games”)
D). Guitar Pick Rick
If you guessed “B”, you guessed correctly. No fair if you asked him directly and total disqualification if he answered you.
Here’s a little more trivia – guess who decides which trivia questions you see in the Oodles Bonus Trivia and Oodles Question of the Day? It’s actually a team of people at GSN! And guess who it includes? Brendy and yours truly! Many of the questions themselves come from players through the message boards and e-mails to GSNAngel. Every week we plug some of those questions in, and the team members add in a few of their questions to the mix, and we meet on Thursdays to go over them for accuracy. You’d think reviewing them would improve my odds, but… well… what were we talking about?
Oh yes – Justin Bieberus! Can I have my Oodles now?
