Slim, do you know exactly where every person was born? Did you check the biography of each one of the people who were there?

That's about 2% at the most.
There are 10 contestants in the American version of the show.
What is the statistical probability of four Israeli's on the same show?
Just a Mathematical question.


Are you saying that just because 4 Israeli Americans beat the odds, the producers should fill their slots with weaker performers of nationalities more representative of the population?

Are you saying that you or other applicants are more skilled than Ehud, and should have been selected in his place?

I guess we’ll see how Ehud compares to the rest soon enough. If he makes it past the first round, all arguments will be moot.

First rounds will be the most difficult, very short time periods.

My opinion, he had his shot.



If the rules of the competition bar candidates who competed in the Israeli competition, then I agree with you 100%

If there is no such rule for the competition, then we are just making up our own rules.

Here, I’ll make one up…

Rule 1: All competitors must submit their life savings to ElliottB as an entrance fee

I am sure Uri and Mr. Angel know MANY people in the mentalism community.

I asked a mathematical question.
On an even playing field the odds are over 20 to 1.
Just the facts Smile

I think SEEMS is the operative word. I guess we'll find out.

Yes, they are only in the promo for the show.

It has already been explained a few times that what you see on the promo is to describe what the show is about. The mentalists there won't be on the new one.

I am sorry that you find a recap of your own statements annoying. I am trying to be polite.

You know the top three students in my undergraduate class were members of just 2% of the population. Not only that, but a member of said population was #1 in both undergrad and grad (we won’t name this fellow.) I am sure that, as part of a vast conspiracy, his teachers must have given him an unfair edge.

So you are saying that only a small percent of the population attend your school so it is obvious that anyone who excelled would be from an even smaller percentage.
Makes sense but it doesn't apply here at all.
Keep trying Smile

My school had a fair representation of the population of the USA. Your assumption that the top of the class could not be represented by 2% of said population is faulty.

What I don't get is that Geller has lived in England for the last 35 years, more than he ever lived in Israel. Doesn't it make more sense that he would also choose some British mentalists if it's all up to him?

Criss of course chose all his American friends.

Jim Callahan must have gotten there by mistake.

Good point.

Well folks, I think we all agree that this discussion is going around in circles. At this point, it’s all speculation any which way. I, for one, would like to end the discussion…or at least my contribution (if you want to call it that) to our great debate and head to sleep.

I suppose the show will be either good or bad. I remember reading that most of top caliber mentalists declined to audition. Hopefully, the fellows that showed up will be sufficiently entertaining.

At the very least, I hope that no significant exposure results from the program.

And that’s all I have to say about Phenomenon...

I will get new VooDoo dolls for all of the contestants so that the outcome will remain in my hands! Smile
