I discovered America’s Psychic Challenge last night (this morning actually). I went to bed at about 1:30 am and flipped on the TV and it was on. I had no idea what it was but as I was getting ready for bed, I realized that it was a reality contest show like Top Chef or Project Runway but instead of competing to be the best chef or designer, the contestants were competing to be the top psychic. I only saw part of the end of the show – the last challenge where they had to psychically detect what had gone on in the hotel room where Janis Joplin had died. It was cool to see the way the different psychics worked and all of the varied information that they were getting. I’m a very big sceptic until I witness a psychic prove herself. I’m still skeptical about most of the psychics on the show, but I am looking forward to watching more episodes. I programmed a season pass on my Tivo so I don’t miss any.
The best part for me was right before a commercial break, when they showed a woman getting a manicure and three different colors of nail polish. They then asked the audience to test their psychic skills by picking which color nail polish the woman actually got painted on her nails – pink, lavender, or red. My first reaction was pink, but then I decided to ask my spirit guides since that is how John Edward and other psychics get their info - through their spirit guides. So I asked them “Ok, what color nail polish did that woman get painted on her nails?” I immediately heard “red” and felt this huge pull toward the right which is where the red nail polish was on the table, it was the nail polish on the right. It was such a strong feeling I was 90% sure that I was right. Sure enough, when they returned from the commercial break, it was revealed that she had her nails painted with the red polish.
