Game shows give us the chance to show how smart or talented we are and win fabulous prizes in front of the whole world. There is also the risk of appearing less than intelligent.

How do dumb people get on game shows? The producers are constantly looking for them. That is why you have to audition to be on the show. TV producers are not looking for winners they are looking for good television. Sometimes that good TV is in the form of Ken Jennings the Jeopardy! whiz or they are in the form of this lady.

This clip from the classic game show The Newlywed Game helps solidify the stereotype of the "dumb blonde". Watch and laugh along as she tries to figure out the question without looking stupid but winds up failing miserably.
