Make it "Greedy people with bad math skills, randomly opening boxes" and you got yourself a deal.
No way, "randomly opening boxes" sounds like fun... this is pure retardation. It's more like "randomly pointing at things" or something to that effect. And for anyone who says they only watch it for the hot chicks, I have this to say... get the Internet. There are far better ways to waste two hours on a Wednesday night.
And I disagree with the "Greedy people with bad math skills" thing. First of all, I want to know how they pick the contestants... is it random? Do they interview? Do they pick the most polarizing people possible; NASCAR dads? The token black family? Upper-middle-class white, anglo-saxon protestant families just like everyone else? If someone came up to me on the street and said "how would you like to point at boxes and win millions of dollar" well, I'd say yes, and so would you, your mom, your idiot neighbors, your most annoying co-workers and any monkey in the zoo. They don't have "bad math skills" they have NO SKILLS AT ALL, because they're not required. It's guessing. It's like Press Your Luck without the questions, the big board of prizes OR the whammies. It's the most boring concept in the history of contests. It's like Publisher's Clearinghouse without the magazines. It's so many things that define what is godless and wrong with our society.
Hahaha, I'm starting to crack myself up with the cliches, but you get the point.
