Jim's rope effect is his own creation...developed it many, many years ago. Incredibly clever methodology.

I think he chose to perform that effect because he was making a statement about what this show was really about...'cause it sure wasn't mentalism.

As an added bonus...I bet Criss Angel is still scratching his head in wonder.

Best,
Mick

Exactly Terry!

It was pointless.

The goal was to have a CHALLENGE - money on the line - reputations on the line - something with dramatic tension...

In the end.... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Who cares if it was switched because there was no effect! Talk about anticlimax.

Oh well, maybe Jim will be a guest on the season premiere of MINDFREAK.

Hey CA dressed up for the night! EEHHH

Did he market it? I'm fairly certain this effect was on the market years ago.

Whatever - Jimbo basically demo'd a magic effect and showed the scope of the Paranormalist.

Anyone who still thinks he claims real supernatural powers after that.... please check into Bellvue.

Oh, my next prediction - Angela Funovits will be the Big Winner overall.

I had this "sick" feeling when Criss showed the prediction. I'm not here to knock him...I just felt it really wasn't in good taste. I realize that he wanted to make a point, but it just didn't leave me with a very good feeling. I would have much rather seen a Smile face or something mundane.

Ah - you are finally seeing the aspect of CA many of us do not enjoy either. It was too heavy, preachy, and tasteless. This is an entertainment show.

Note to CA: Stop listening to Randi and enjoy yourself. It is time for the 4 ghosts to visit you.

I took it as him basically thumbing his nose at the whole thing.

He will be here shortly, I can't wait to hear the rest of the story. I would hope the gag order is lifted.

With all due respect, just because I wasn't vocal on the Café about Criss' remarks on the show doesn't mean I am "finally" seeing something. There were a number of things I didn't agree with (and why just be a parrot?), but some here responded in ways that were overboard (making fun of his lisp, etc). Those comments and some others were way out of line - and there seemed to be some jumping to conclusions, which I questioned.

That was Jim's way of Mocking the process and the fact that he was not allowed to take the challenge as he was asked to do and was willing to take...Bad Form NBC.
No Million in cash either..Seemed CA cut off URI amid sentance to open the dual envelope( Taking no chances by not allowing anyone to guess and the ability to switch if they did get it)
Kind of Sucked.
I'm glad Jim has gotten a few hundred thousand more hits on his website Smile

Uri wasn't going to guess. If Criss hadn't cut him off the show would have ended because of time constraints before we knew who won Smile. And Slim, do you really think it was a gimmicked envelope?

I'd also like to hear directly from Jim as to why he did the rope thing as opposed to what may be conjecture.

CA is just rude to everyone...I'm not sure what Uri was going to say...I'm glad you were.
Where was the million...I didn't see one. I was sure there wouldn't be. Smile The challenge was a bigger illusion than CA's fanclub.

Please help me out, as I don't watch much TV and NEVER the reality kind...Don't we get to vote on the winners? Is it standard NOT TO?
I honestly don't know.

I wasn't there, but I'm a mentalist.

As I understand it, the voting was last week following the show. I'm not sure what you are asking.

Everybody who wanted to vote voted last week. Tonight's performance wasn't part of the competition, it was part of the entertainment. Super and Funovitz were the two highest vote-getters last week, and Mike got more than Angela.

There were 4 to vote for last week (Guy was brought back on by Criss and Uri). The voting was done for 2 hours (I believe) after the show. The results were in by the next day and it was revealed tonight, a week later.

Don't lose sleep over it... I have been a personal friend of Uri's for over 15 years and I can tell you that the show sucked in the USA... Time to listen to Coast To Coast tonight with Jim K, and Mike S. as guests....
