Show host JD Roth
The word from Channel 5 is below. But, having just talked to a rep from the show, I should clarify: This is not going to be a segment for telecast in the program. This is part of a promotional tour for the show, and on a somewhat smaller scale than segments being made for TV. There will be the hoopla described in the release below.
ABC’s highly-anticipated game show “Opportunity Knocks” is on its way to Canton, and Jon and Kim Compson are the stars! The Compson family neighborhood is the chosen site of “Opportunity Knocks,” the show that quizzes families about how well they know each other. The general public is encouraged to attend and cheer for the Compson family as they compete for big prizes. “We are just ecstatic and never guessed in a million years that this would happen to us,” explains Jon Compson. “This is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
The tv show team will set up a block party in front of the Compson family home (2413 Midvale Road, Canton) on Friday, September 5th. Be there as activities begin at 4PM with the show concluding around 7PM. Free food and drinks, giveaways, and entertainment will be provided. Supplies are limited, so come early! Your favorite NewsChannel 5 on-air personalities will also be on hand to join the fun, as well as local radio stations armed with additional chances to win prizes.
From the playful mind of Ashton Kutcher, Opportunity Knocks arrives in Canton with a truck full of mind-blowing prizes and gifts -- flat screen TVs, designer furniture and cold hard cash. As soon as the host shows up at the Compson house, the game begins!
