About Match Game

Get ready to match the stars as Alec Baldwin hosts the revival of the iconic TV game show… Match Game!  One of the most popular game shows from the 1970’s, Match Game is comprised of two contestants guessing how a panel of six celebrities will fill-in-the-blank to a series of various (somewhat silly) questions. The player with the most matches at the end of two rounds goes on to play the big money Super Match where they could win up to $25,000!  The show is set to air this summer!

What They Are Looking For

Applicants must be 21+

Legal Resident of the United States

Casting directors are looking for people with clever and charismatic personalities who have a great sense of humor to play the ultimate version of “fill-in-the-blank”.

No need to be a brainiac or expert with words but an easy going and fun personality is key!

Filming will take place on a week day in New York City between June 13 – July 1, 2016. If selected as a contestant, you will be required to come to the studio for one FULL day.

    Love the old Match Game, love Alec and I’m just a star struck kinda gal. I’m wise, educated and I love to laugh 😆 Not a quick wit and I crack under pressure 😂

  2. monica calderon

    Match game is the best show. I always wanted to be on this show. I have so many laughs watching Alec Baldwin. I would love to win some money so I can put a down payment to a house for my family.

  3. Alberta "Gina" Cooper

    I’ve always wanted to be on a game show! Now that I’m in my 70’s I need to do it now!
    Gene Rayburn was so good on the Match game. But, it would be such an honor to be on the Match Game with Alec Baldwin. Maybe viewers would like to an old fat lady from the country meeting famous people for the first time. Considering how little I get from Social Security I could really use the money & skip going to the food pantry.

  10. Evan

    I would love to be on Match Game. I used to watch the Gene Rayburn originals (70’s/80’s) all the time on GSN, and I think the newest version has done the show the most justice from other revivals tried out later in the 80’s and 90’s after Match Game 7x’s original run.

  11. Diana Hagen

    Hey there, i would love to be on match game, i record ebery episode old and new, i’m 68 n watch at least 5 a night of Gene rayburn and Richard Dawson, This is the best game show ever , with the best host n panel ever, old n new..please pick me 🙏

  14. Linda

    I would love to be on your show

  15. Mary Miller

    I’m a TOTAL fan of Match Game!!! I faithfully watched the original with Gene Rayburn and was thrilled when it came back on the air with Alec. The only difference is the old panel used to “DRINK” during lunch and the current panel enjoys their cocktails openly on the show. I rock at getting the BEST MATCH to answers after years of practice (especially this new version as I’m not afraid to “go there” with my answers!) SERIOUSLY you WANT me on the show. I won’t disappoint. CALL ME! EMAIL ME! TEXT ME! I’m ready.

  16. Colette Houlihan

    Would love to see my daughter Colette Houlihan on the show she is a Irish beauty with a wonderful sense of humor.

  17. Katlynn Jordan

    I’m Katlynn Jordan, I work as a dispatcher for the school district and I live in Arizona. Honestly I just turned 25 and I’m trying to buy my dream car, so adding $25,000 to my white girl budget sounds pretty good. Don’t you see the match already. .I’m 25 and I can take $25,000 home!

  18. Kim Mitchell

    Big Fan!!! Positive energy!!! Fun Fun Fun!!

    Hey, I’m Rachel. It would appear they serve booze on this show, which definitely makes it better than other game shows (suck it jeopardy). I’m pretty funny as far as women go, and I would probably use any money I make to pay for future car accidents. Many thanks 😘

  23. Justin Weisman

    Yea ok I would love some money just for meeting some celebrities, finally shoe’s on the other foot. But honestly i would like a shot a winning some extra money for bills and finally have some money in the bank. I’d be good for 2 reasons, 1 I can dish it as good as I can take it. And 2 is I’m very quick mentally and Im very funny. Thanks for bothering to read this if you made it this far, Congrats, Justin

  24. Sarah Kowats

    Hey my names Sarah, i’m different then all your other applicants. Give me one chance and I can prove it. Not just applying for the fame and fortune. Sure everyone says to pay bills and students loans off or “just want to be on TV”. I’m spontaneous and at the rate i’m going i’ll be super genius by 30. Just kidding! But give me a call and i’ll show you who I am and why I think i’m worthy.

  45. Colby

  46. Michael Boccanfuso

    To whom it may concern; ( always sounds professional even on the “stupidity index”…
    My name is Michael and I currently live with one of my brother’s and mom. I have two other brother’s but there about as useful as a snowflake in a snowstorm….
    Returning to our story, my brother and I have accepted this is life. We rent a small house in upstate N.Y., and have been through more in a our 43 years that a lot of people have experienced in a lifetime. I am 43 and David is 39. Mom , 66 and spunky as a squirrel on acid. Now myself, I know deep in my heart , insert the tear jerker, I was meant to entertain people. I am a hairdresser for many years and an Interior designer (freelance) , and freelance artist and photography lover. However, my credit is so bad, they won’t take my cash. I have tried to look up my credit score , but lost sight for a couple weeks as the computer I used to obtain the score, I am pretty sure laughed and then the screen shot glass at me…..think some spit was in there too…..It’s amazing how a bad credit score means “guess again sh&*bag”…
    My reason for writing is none of my family has ever flown. One due to that takes alot of money which I can’t seem to find any around the house. I have looked thoroughly, but apparently the house doesn’t produce cash….BUMMER. Similiarly, we all are big t.v. fans and the most we have won between the three of us is 3.00 on a scratchoff, and I think possibly once a free slurpee. pretty sure they thought I stole it even after winning it. 😉
    O.K. let me get to the point, you need me on your show. 1. The audience and viewers will wonder where’s this guy been. I am a gay man with too much style for living in the woods, unless I re-style a tree. Maybe ad a tree skirt, some bark cover up etc…….The bark is rough to match up….
    In closing, all I am hoping is that you at least give me a call and just maybe a shot at winning some much needed money as we do not have a car, and want my mother’s life at this time to be fully enjoyable. Throw a guy a line……..throw a guy a dollar bill……
