** The replacement of Wink Martindale with Jim Caldwell, an infomercial host with no prior game show experience; Caldwell would frequently mis-gender upcoming contestants, mispronounce or misread questions requiring a correction from the off-screen judge, and on one occasion, had to be reminded to shuffle the categories before the game by ''one of the contestants.'' While he did improve somewhat as his season went on, the show was already on its way out.
** Patrick Wayne as host of the 1990 version, who to this day is the go-to example of "bad game show host" among fans[[note]]although in fairness to Wayne, there have been plenty of hosts who were even worse both before and since[[/note]]. Wayne's NoIndoorVoice style of hosting--shouting "IS RIGHT!", "YOU BLOCK!", or "YOU WIN!" after virtually every correct answer--quickly became grating.
