Car Giveaway (2004)
It's the most fun I've ever had during a season premiere—276 audience members and a free Pontiac G6 for every one of them! The audience had been secretly handpicked by my staff in part because each one needed a car. The crowd went berserk. Just for the occasion, we brought in EMTs who were standing by in case someone's heart started palpitating a little bit too quickly. Even now when I think of the shrills of pure joy I heard on the show that day, my own heart rate rises all over again.
