Meet Pumped Host Greg Fitzsimmons

By November 17, 2011

Follow me on:

Speed's new game show, Pumped, premieres tonight at 9pm Eastern. The show is hosted by Greg Fitzsimmons (remember him from Idiot Savants, anyone?), and features contestants being approached at the gas station and offered the chance to play. Answer a few trivia questions, score a bit of cash. Not a bad deal, really.

I had the chance to speak to Fitzsimmons this week, and we discussed the show and what it's all about. Check out my Interview with Greg Ftizsimmons for a sneak peek at Pumped - and for those of you who complained that the $1,800 top prize was "cheap," you'll be happy to know that I asked him about that. His answer made sense to me, but I'd love to know what you all think about it!

Don't forget to catch Pumped tonight, and then stop by and share your thoughts on the show.

Sorry, but the explanation for the $1800 top prize just doesn’t cut it.

Yes I study, yes I work hard at trivia, but that’s because it is what I like to do–that is my hobby. I don’t have money for expensive toys, I don’t get to go on vacations and there just aren’t that many TV shows or movies I want to see these days. Trivia is a love affair that I’ve had my entire life and game shows just go with that as the pinnacle of my hobby.

My dream is simply to be on a game show (not one of the stunt variety), the money is a nice bonus that I would be extremely grateful for.
