“The Birthday” by Marc Chagall
The other game show idea that Alex, Merv, and I kicked around on the weekend was a variation of, “The Dating Game”. In the GNAY version, three attractive women battle to win a date with the famous artist. And I mean battle, as seen on “Jerry Springer” or “Maury Povich” (two very long running shows!). When not adjusting their bra straps, hair and make-up, the three bachelorettes will be quizzed by GNAY to see which one he fancies. (ie. “If I was to paint a nude of you, how would you pose and why?”) Merv says titillating questions like this always produce the biggest laughs (and ratings). Trebek says he hates the idea.
