Thousand Dollar Bee (styled as THOU$AND DOLLAR BEE) is a children's game show that ran on the now-defunct and little-seen Black Family Channel from November 20, 2004 to April 28, 2007.
In a tournament, children are quizzed on spelling words in a variety of ways, from traditional spelling bee format to unscrambling letters, capped off with an end game. The champion would receive a $1,000 bond for his or her college education.
Why It Stings Away from Any Money
- It has way too many black stereotypes, which can be infuriating.
- Lousy theme song.
- Boring hosting from Sinatra Onyewuchi (credited as both Sinatra Onieyewacki, ironically misspelling its own host's surname, and Sinatra "The Wacky Host"). Toward the end, there was a second host named Brandon Thaton, but none of his episodes have circulated, so far.
- An annoying assistant in Jordan Ealey (aka "Busy Bee").
- Creepy CGI bee.
- Idiotic contestants who don’t even try.
- Lame judging.
- Badly done animated breaks.
- Cheap set.
- One round was literally unscrambling words with magnets (though it can be forgiven as an homage to Soul Train).
- The "grand prize" for the entire season is $1,000 towards the winner's college education. Yeah.
