A fine choice, 19 August 1998
Author: Ernest Ovalle Jr. ( from Callifornia, U.S.A.

This was always one of my favorite game shows because the celebrities always provided a lot of entertainment with their answers. I especially liked Alf as the guest host the week John Davidson was on vacation. Joan Rivers was my favorite celebrity and my favorite sponsor was Continental Airlines.
