This is a newly discovered recording of a show I first transferred in 2008, we previously had a solid Tobydog Tape but this sounds way better, The show is 100% complete and this is Jimmy’s 1st of 8 known appearances during the Adam Carolla era of the show, Adam’s buddy “Jim/Jimmy” is finally on air with the Aceman, Jimmy kills it even though he’s fairly quiet and reserved, but his few contributions are hilarious. Ben is making his 1st of 6 total appearances on the show during the Adam era. Some users of LoveLineTapes find some of Ben’s comments to be controversial, once again decide for yourself.
From Wiki: Win Ben Stein’s Money was an American television game show created by Al Burton and Donnie Brainard that aired first-run episodes from July 28, 1997 to January 31, 2003 on the Comedy Central cable network, with repeat episodes airing until May 8, 2003. The show featured three contestants who competed to answer general knowledge questions in order to win the grand prize of $5,000 from the show’s host, Ben Stein. In the second half of each episode, Stein participated as a “common” contestant in order to defend his money from being taken by his competitors. The show won six Daytime Emmy awards, with Stein and Jimmy Kimmel, the show’s original co-host, sharing the Outstanding Game Show Host award in 1999.
As noted in a disclaimer during the closing credits, prize money won by contestants was paid from a prize budget furnished by the producers of the show. Any money left over in that budget at the end of a season was given to Stein. If the total amount paid out during a season exceeded that budget, the production company paid the excess. In this way, Stein was never in any danger of losing money from his own pocket.
Stein’s co-host was Jimmy Kimmel for the first three years. Kimmel left in 2000 and was replaced by Nancy Pimental, who co-hosted the program through 2001. Kimmel’s cousin, Sal Iacono, who took over the role in 2002, was the show’s last co-host. Although Kimmel left the program in 2000, he occasionally made guest appearances afterward, and hosted College Week episodes in 2001.
