Game Show Commits $800,000 Goof


After sticking by their answer all week, the show's executive producer, Jeff Apploff, issued a statement late Thursday saying that, "unfortunately, the information our research department originally obtained from 3M regarding when Post-it notes were first sold was incomplete."

The producer promised to give the couple another shot on the show, saying, "we would like to extend our sincere thanks to the viewers who brought this to our attention, and we're thrilled to give Gabe and Brittany the opportunity to return to play the game."

The couple are still processing Fox's latest offer and don't want to comment just yet.

Still, they said that they are not angry at Fox, and though it took some time to get over losing $800,000, they're not upset.

"I was angry at first, but seeing him [Okoye] so hurt and remorseful about it, I was like, I love him more than his money," Mayti said.

The couple has used the experience to strengthen their relationship.

"It really wasn't about the money. I should have listened to Brittany at the time because she was so passionate about the answer and she went with me and my answer and really supported me," Okoye said.

Still, Okoye cringes every time he sees a Post-it.

"Every time I see Post-its, I'm like, 'Oh my God,'" Okoye said. "There's a 3M right down the street. Every time I drive by, I kind of laugh about it."
