Says Who?

Producer: Bob Stewart
Host: Geoff Edwards
Celebrities: Betsy Palmer, Anne Meara, Bill Cullen, Peter Lawford
Taping Info: Early 1970s, probably in New York City based on technical credits
Made it to Air: No
Availability: It has aired on GSN and is available on the trading circuit.

Personality was a show that somehow lasted 2 years on NBC, a dull affair where three celebrities tried to guess the answer to a question based on prerecorded interviews. Says Who? dumps the interviews, brings in the contestants from the studio audience and onto the stage, and pretty much tries the same thing.

Says Who? involves four celebrities and two civilians segregated into teams by gender. In the first round, one celebrity is asked a question such as "Can you forgive a cheating husband", and before he/she answers the question, he/she locks in whether they are going to answer the question based on their beliefs, or what they believe their celebrity partner's believes. The other celebrity and the contestant tries to agree or disagree with the designated celebrity. If the contestant is correct, $100 is given to the team. If the celebrity is correct, $50 is given to the team.

In the second round, the tables are turned slightly with the question being asked about the celebrities on the other team. The first team to $300 wins the game and moves onto the bonus round.

In the bonus round, the contestant was asked to try to figure out which of her celebrity teammates said a statement read by Geoff. For one correct guess, the player received $20, $40 for two, $80 for three, $160 for four and $320 plus an additional prize (such as a trip) for five out of five. The contestants then switch teams and start all over.

That's pretty much it. And like Personality, it's a very dull game. How does Peter Lawford really know the inner workings of Bill Cullen? And how can Betsy Palmer technically be wrong if she answers herself?

Says Who?

Here are the lovely ladies.

And the suave males.

This isn't a naming error, its just the players making their choices.
