Something else under "Unusual situations"[edit]

I'm not sure if this should be mentioned in the article, but there is another unusual situation I remember seeing, which occured during Bonus Lingo. The first letter was a "p," and a contestant guessed "PENIS", but was wrong. If anybody else sees this episode and would like to mention it in the article, feel free to do so.--Tomballguy (talk) 02:11, 8 February 2009 (UTC)Chris

How many seasons?[edit]

I'm pretty sure it was six, not five, although I do not have the airing dates to back this up. The first season was made up of 20 episodes filmed in the Netherlands, hosted by Woolery alone; the second was also hosted only by Woolery but introduced the bonus letters and the Bonus Lingo board on which a team could win on the first try; the third was co-hosted by Woolery and Hayes; and the fourth was the début Finnessey as co-host, but the top prize during this season was never more than $10000. The page itself mentions two seasons with the progressive jackpot; the rest of the page should be kept consistent with this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:30, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

Episode Count[edit]

Does anyone have a source for the number of episodes in each GSN season, or a source for the number of episodes in the 1980s version? Sottolacqua (talk) 15:43, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

What Michael Reagan Said...[edit]

Micahel Reagan said on Lingo, any team that wins three bonus rounds would win over $100,000. The exact number is $112,000, more than that if a team wins extra money and prizes. Am I right?--E2e3v6 (talk) 19:49, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Record in Lingo by Woolery[edit]

Reference? WikiLubber (talk) 15:50, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

In the T.C. (Tournament of Champions) final match, the final scores were 775 to 550. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:06, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Do you have any admissible evidence, besides your own knowledge? WikiLubber (talk) 18:34, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Go on with you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:54, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Well, this does not help the article, anyway, since there is no records section, due to it being too trivial/fancruft. WikiLubber (talk) 02:44, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Can I get some help here?! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:09, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Assuming this information DID have a place in the article, would a video of the episode in question count as "admissible evidence" for backing up statements of this sort? Blozier2006 (talk) 05:12, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

If the video is not a violation of copyright issues discussed in WP:YOUTUBE, yes. If there is an issue with linking to copyvio material, use Template:Cite episode instead, but be sure to add as much detail as possible in the reference. Sottolacqua (talk) 13:51, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

International versions[edit]

I have removed the entries in the international versions table for Japan, Mexico, and US Spanish since after searching for information about these, nothing seems to come up. I humbly request that if these versions do exist, please provide proof. --ÆAUSSIEevilÆ 02:26, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
