I like Meredith Vieira very much, in fact much better than Regis or than any replacements she has had. However, in the new version of the game, I find it very annoying how she continuously misleads the contestants about the choices they have. Examples: In round two, you get to keep all your money - of course only if they decide to walk; you will lose your bank if you answer the question wrong when in fact they get $25000 - I even saw one contestant ask to clarify that. In round one, she is constantly saying
you will lose your bank if you answer incorrectly (technically true but even if you miss the first question you get $1000). The latest statement she made was on the third show of the new season - instead of saying you lose your bank, etc. she told the contestant if you get this wrong you go away with nothing. Unless I am unaware of a new rule in this season, this is a blatant lie, since they get $1000. I want to emphasize I like Meredith but find this one tendency of hers to be very annoying.
