Alexis is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: During WW2 the government rationed sugar, and so for a few years, trick or treating wasn't allowed. After the war ended, candy companies wanted to get people into it again so they started a spooky advertising campaign. It involved a specific group of characters that would wear Halloween costumes. After a few short years, trick or treating became an annual staple again. What group of characters are credited with helping re-ignite the country's interest?
Every day we're getting closer to Halloween....And that's why today you'll each receive a bone chilling multiple choice question to see if you'll be shocked... And just like times before... You'll have 30 seconds to discuss your answer...and no one in the room can help you. If you get it right, you're safe from a shock to the neck.. but if you're wrong, buckle up- because it's going to be a horror ride of electricity. Alexis- "Guisin" is the Scottish and Irish equivalent of which Halloween tradition? Bobbing for apples, carving pumpkins, or trick or treating? Brooke- What does the name Dracula mean? "Son of the Dragon," "King of the Bats," or "Father of the Night"? Jose- Transylvania is a region in what country? Austria, Romania or Germany?

Brooke is wearing the Shock Collar today! Today's question: Back in the Korean war, American troops were running low on ammunition and radioed in for a supply of 60 mm mortars, code name, "Tootsie Rolls." The operator didn't have a code sheet to tell him what that meant... And soon, pallets of actual Tootsie Roll candies were airdropped from the sky. While the Tootsie Rolls weren't the ammunition they were looking for, they did provide nourishment for the troops and also did one practical thing to help the soldiers last longer on the battlefield. What was it?
Brooke is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: I know most people in this room have cut the cord and gotten ride of cable, besides Jose who still has it and multiple satellite dishes as a backup...But overall it's safe to say- people aren't watching LIVE TV as much as they used to. In fact, of the Top 30 most-watched Television Series Finales of all time, only 3 happened after the year 2000.. and hint: One happened in the year 2005. Tell me the three series finales I'm talking about?
Jeff is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's Question:Only in Iceland, before any construction can begin on a building project, a special inspector needs to survey the site to make sure a very specific type of creature is NOT living "in or around" the site. This creature is said to be plentiful in Iceland, but no one has any proof that it really exists. What mythical or non- mythical creature am I talking about?
Everyone in this room will get a multiple choice question all based around the date October 12th. If you get it correct, you're safe... But if you don't then you will get shocked. If the entire room gets all the questions right, Then Digital Jake will take the shock. The only rule is no one is allowed to help the others with their questions. You'll have 30 seconds to talk to yourself then finalize the answer. Alexis- American basketball Hall of Famer, Wilt Chamberlain holds numerous NBA records including most points scored in a game, with 100. Did this happen Oct. 12th...1952? 1962? OR 1972? Brooke- Oct. 12th 1992...One of the members of the "Three Tenors" was caught lip syncing during a live BBC performance. Was is Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, or Jose Carreras? Jose- On Oct.12th, 1969.. A Detroit disc jockey & his radio audience determined from clues found in Beatles songs & album covers that a certain member of the group had secretly died & they covered it up. Which Beatle was it? George? Paul? or Ringo? Jeffrey- "In life you don't regret the things you do... You regret the things you don't do." That quote is from a famous actor, known for his superhero films. He turns 53 today, who is it? Robert Downey Jr, Hugh Jackman or Christian Bale?

He may not help with this answer until after I read this question a second time...
Today's Shock Collar is a first of it's kind...We've never done it before, and who knows...we may never do it again. So every one in this room will get a multiple choice question. You'll have 30 seconds to discuss it by yourself with NO ONE ELSE. Right after you submit your final answer, I will tell you if you're safe or if you're in line for the shock.

Alexis is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: When Lewis and Clark began their expedition west, President Thomas Jefferson wanted them to explore the new land, but he also had another thing on his mind...Jefferson was obsessed with animals and he held out hope that one particular creature still existed in unexplored territory. He had heard rumors that these animals might be living free and he wanted proof so he could claim that his country's animal life was superior to that of other countries. Lewis and Clark never found any evidence of this animal, but Jefferson remained convinced they were out there even until his death. What animal was it?

Jose is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: Every October 4th, the population of Sweden celebrates an unofficial holiday. And because of that...Everyone wakes up extra early in the morning and line up at bakeries around the country...All to buy ONE ITEM. It's made using an ingredient that goes all the way back to Roman times...When they first introduced it to Europe, Sweden became the first country to make pastries with it...Now, every year they celebrate it...It's national WHAT day?
Brooke is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Who in this room would consider themselves a rule breaker? There's plenty of weird laws around the world that sound so strange, you can't be sure if they're real or not. I'm going to give you four rules and you'll have 30 seconds to discuss and tell me if you think they are real or not. In Maine it's illegal to post any advertisements on Tombstones. Is this law real or fake? In Duxbury, MA there's a historical monument (it's a bow of a boat that looks out over the ocean) And they had to pass a law, banning people from doing the Titanic "King of the World" pose on the edge of the bow. Is this law real or fake? In Walnut Ridge, Arkansas they have a law that says it's illegal to call the fire department if you see a house on fire that's not yours. Instead, you're supposed to call the owner of the house, so they can report it. Is this law real or fake? In response to New York's soda law, Mississippi passed a law saying you can serve a soda in any size you want... So now, it's illegal to put limits on portion sizes for Big Gulps. Is this law real or fake?
Brooke is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: The 1996 film Scream was a satirical slasher film that was credited with revitalizing the genre of horror movies in the 90's. Not only that but after this movie came out, experts say that the usage of one particular thing TRIPLED across the country. Today, everyone in this room uses it daily AT LEAST ONCE, and I can say this with full confidence...It makes all our lives easier. What am I talking about?

Alexis is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: Children have always feared the dreaded "Boogeyman." But where did such a terrifying name come from? One theory about the origins leads up to believe what we now call the "Boogeyman" was actually a real job during the middle ages. What job would the "Boogeyman" have?
Jose is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: US Presidents often bring pets into the White House, but in 1926 Calvin Coolidge actually had one sent to him instead! The animal was a gift for Coolidge and his family from a constituent in Mississippi and it was intended to be part of Thanksgiving dinner...but at the last second, the president couldn't bear the thought of eating it, so he kept it as a pet instead. He named it Rebecca and it often napped on his lap by the fire and it could often be seen going for a walk around the White House grounds on a leash. What type of pet did Calvin Coolidge have?
Brooke is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: I predict that all of the radio hosts here in this room have never heard this next phrase before (partly because everyday I see a lot of stained sweatpants) but there's a saying for when you're looking sharp...it's called "Dressed to the Nines." Today, we use it as a slang for dressing up and looking good, but the phrase originated back in 19th century Europe. What did it mean back then when someone was "Dressed to the Nines?"
Jose is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: Today we're celebrating the BIRTH of someone very special in the world of entertainment. On this day in 1936...A man was born who ended up winning 18 Emmys...7 Grammys...4 Peabodys.. And 5 Ace awards. Everyone in this room DEFINITELY knows him. This person lived until the 1990's, but got their BIG BREAK 30 years before that in a Purina Dog Chow commercial...but he was never IN IT. Name this famous entertainer.
Brooke is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: When you'd want someone to stop talking, nowadays Brooke might tell Jose to "put a sock in it." But did you know that the phrase originated in Britain back in the 1800's...and was used in a much more literal way before it eventually became a slang way to get people to shut their yaps. What is the origin of the phrase, "put a sock in it?"
Jose is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: Baywatch premiered on this day in 1989. One decade later, the show was filming in Hawaii when they stumbled upon a handsome teenager working in a surf shop on the beach. He had the perfect look they needed for a lifeguard and they cast him on the show for 3 seasons. However, that wasn't his big break...after Baywatch he struggled to find success because most producers just saw him as a pretty boy and not a serious actor. But years later, it finally happened... and he was cast on one of the most popular TV shows of all time. From then he went on to also become a big time movie star. Tell me, who am I talking about?
Alexis is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: Miniature golf is known by many names: Putt putt, crazy golf, shorties, mini putt, and even "Alexis golf"... because everything is tiny! Today, people world wide celebrate this date as official miniature golf day...and there's a lot of history with the sport I bet you don't know. Maybe the biggest change happened 30 years ago in Finland- a group of people loved it so much they came up with an idea to make it more fun- and now you'll se this twist everywhere including all over North America. What did they come up with that would change the game of mini golf forever?
Jose is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: How do you know when your relationship is getting serious? A new poll found it takes an average of two years of dating before you know you want to be with someone long-term. Couples were asked to name the moment they realized things started to get serious. I need you to tell me the Top 4 answers in no particular order. And hint: Saying "I Love You" and "Moving in Together" did not make the top four.
