Oxford game show enthusiast Vanessa Cummings set to appear on 'Let's Ask America'

Game show enthusiast, Oxford-native Vanessa Cummings, will get her 15 minutes of fame as she appears on "Let's Ask America" at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

For those of you who haven't seen the show, Let's Ask America  is a daily half-hour game show where four contestants answer questions from home via web chat for a chance to win $50,000. 

Cummings applied to be on a different game show two or three years ago, but never got a call until a few weeks ago. Producers from Let's Ask America found her application and gave her a call, asking if she'd like to be a part of the show. After numerous Skype interviews and calls, she's prepared to play.

"We played practice games to see how I would respond. They're looking for someone who's fun and has high energy," said Cummings.

Cummings, 50, lives in Oxford but works in Columbus as a parking supervisor. She spends most of her week in Columbus, traveling back to Oxford on the weekends. 

Cummings, a regular viewer of the show, is ecstatic about her chance to play.

"One of my responses left a producer hunched over on her desk laughing. I'm 50 but sometimes have the mind of a 17-year-old," she said laughing.
