Game Shows discriminate against midgets

I had a realization tonight while watching a supermarket sweep rerun on Netflix. (Don’t you fucking judge me asshole)

I have never seen a midget contestant on a game show. Ever.

You would think a guy that is watching a 90s game show on a Sunday evening would have seen at least 1 fucking midget in his lifetime of game show watching, but I can’t think of one.

Does anyone remember seeing one? You don’t have to specify episodes or anything, just honor code, have you seen a midget on a game show.

I think the term you are looking for is 'vertically challenged' you can't say midgets any more :)

When I went skateboarding last weekend, I saw a quite tall and muscular dude who had a midget wife sitting there and a normal looking son he had with her running around.

In a perfect world this would not be spectacular, but oh boy, did I have weird thoughts about this whole situation they are in.

This one is just fascinating but I really would call it a gameshow.

the world is heightphobic, it is true. i know this as a small person. im like 5'4" and most women apparently only want 6' and taller.

There's less than 10 midgets on the entire planet so the odds of one making it on a game show are extremely rare.

I saw a midget on wheel of fortune once. She couldn't reach down to spin the wheel, so they had her just jump on the wheel and start running in place until she got tired. I thought it was pretty insensitive. The wheel landed on 500, but she landed on the Jackpot space which caused some confusion at the time.

That exact midget relay race footage formed the basis for how we came up with Scrapper's run in Pacific Rim 2 if anybody has seen that film. Had to have a sort of stocky physicality, but athletic. Sorry for the derail.
