Although Regis has hosted a game show
before ("The Neighbors"),
audiences were more familiar with Regis'
easy banter and occasional rants from
several daytime talk shows, including
the popular Live! With Regis and Kathie
Lee. But it was the friendly, enthusiastic
way he had with the contestants on ABC's
hit prime time game show that propelled
him into game show history.

"I started small and learned to keep it small. Small is friendlier and more real. Small lasts longer. It wears well. I guess that's why I'm still around." :: excerpt from I'm Only One Man!
"We have a lot of fun talking about nothing all that important and nothing in particular. We just cover the little incidents and minutiae of life. To Jerry [Seinfeld], that's nothing. If he thinks we've elevated it into an art form, what am I going to do? Argue with him?" --excerpt from Who Wants to Be Me?
