CLEVELAND - On Monday night, Kim Hickman of Cleveland will compete to win up to $50,000 on "Let's Ask America."
"Let's Ask America" is the TV game show where contestants can win money from the comfort of their own home. Four contestants are chosen to play the game via Skype from their home, answering questions about fun and irreverent topics to find out what people are thinking.
The 55-year-old Cleveland resident applied to be on the show last summer at an open casting call.
"I thought no one would ever call me … but it was worth a try," Hickman said.
She received a call from the show's producers in the fall and after a few more auditions via Skype, she was told she had made the show.
Hickman's computer is set up in her bedroom, which is where she competed on the game show.
"It was quite interesting. I enjoyed it, but was nervous," she said.
Hickman said setting up for the game show was simple enough, however, when it came to answering the questions, she admits things got tough.
"The things I thought were common were not what America thought were common," she said.
If given the chance to compete again, Hickman said she would love to give it another shot.
"I would do it again!"
