The Conversation: Game Show Guy

"I'm trying to go on as many possible game shows as I can," Corbblah said.

Corbblah is well on his way. Last week, he had his turn being quizzed by Alex Trebek on Jeopardy!, taking home $13,000 to win the game his first night. He lost the following day.

Corbblah's game show run began at the tender age of 11, when he answered geography questions on the PBS game show "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?"

So how does Corbblah get on so many game shows?

"I go through the application process, I audition, I take tests," Corbblah said. "And usually I fail. If I got on every single game show I tried out on, I'd probably be on 20 game shows by now."

Today on the Conversation, Corbblah spoke with ABC's John Berman, who couldn't pass up the chance to give him another quiz. How did Corbblah do on his fifth game show appearance? Watch today's Conversation to find out.
