(KGET) – In my search to find entertainment you can watch while stuck at home, I like it when I discover a program that is not only entertaining while you watch but can spark more fun after the show is over.
Jeff Rogers set out to create a game show and ended up developing a program that can provide relief for those at home who have become bored with their board games. Rogers is the host and co-creator of BYUtv’s latest family friendly show “Jeff’s Homemade Game Show,” a competition series played completely at the homes of the contestants.
The games began May 12 on BYUtv. Don’t worry if you do not have the cable channel, the BYUtv app is free to download.
The 10-episode season uses common on-site household objects, locations and activities for each contest specifically designed for the family hosting the show. Family members can win cash and prizes by participating in homegrown challenges such as stacking cans from their kitchen into a pyramid, returning items that have been removed from their living room to the correct locations, catapulting cereal into a milk-filled bowl, collecting as much loose change as possible and guessing the expiration date of a condiment in their refrigerator.
I started in this industry with an interest in sharing the life changing stories of those who otherwise could not, so that I and others may learn and grow.
