Akron Contestants on "Let's Ask America"

By Rich Heldenfels Published: September 26, 2013

The show airs locally on WEWS (Channel 5) at 7:30 weeknights. The official word:

"Let's Ask America," the TV game show where contestants can win up to $50K from home, features Akron’s Saleswoman and Mother of two, Kym Whitehead, as a contestant on Friday, September 27th and Akron’s Motorcycle Mama, Staci Smith, as a contestant on Thursday, October 3rd.

"Let’s Ask America” is a daily, half-hour, television game show that lets you, the home viewer, be a contestant on the show from the comfort of your home via web chat. To be a contestant, all you have to do is go to and sign up.  Every day, four contestants will bechosen to play the game and can win up to $50,000 cash from their home.

The game is simple: “Let’s Ask America” polls America about fun and irreverent topics to find out what people are thinking (e.g. Which of these shows did a group of prison inmates say they would choose to watch in their cell for an entire year? a) “Dr. Phil,” b) “Days of Our Lives,” c) “The View”). Then, all the contestants have to do is correctly predict the answer.  The prize money increases with each question. There are three rounds and at the end of eachround, the contestant with the lowest cash total is eliminated from the game.

When contestants are tied, they take part in a “Dash for Cash,” which will include a physical challenge. In the final round, the last remaining contestant can wager all or part of their winnings on the "final question of the day." Players who choose to wager all of their money can win up to five times the amount of his or her earnings, for a possible $50,000.

LET’S ASK AMERICA.  It’s simple. If you think you can predict what America is thinking, you can not only watch, you can play on TV and win cash from the comfort of your home.
