Canada Match Game

This is it! After 9 1/2 years, I've finally reached 3000 posts! (Clearly, I'm not a prolific poster ) In commemoration of this historic event, I present MATCH GAME 3000! How, you ask, does MATCH GAME 3000 differ from plain old Match Game? It doesn't!

Here are the rules:

1. I enlist six snopesters to act as Panelists for the contest. This position is unpaid; however, bribery is encouraged.
2. I will PM the Panelists a copy of the five questions for this series. The Panelists will PM me their answers, hopefully before the end of the first round.
3. I will post one round of questions at a time, beginning on Mondays and Thursdays. This gives you three days to answer, or four days for you weekday snopesters who are playing Match Game on your employers' dime.
4. Contestants post their answers in this thread; for each Panelist answer they match, they receive one point.
5. Except in the fifth round, that is; that round is worth a random amount between 2 and 5 points. Contestants must have participated (not necessarily scored) in the first four rounds to qualify for the bonus amount.
6. Answers that require determination will be given to my flatmate for final verdict, and she's a lot more generous than my wife was.
7. In case of tornado: southwest corner of cellar.
8. Winners will be determined by the amount of points awarded, obviously.

This series' prize package includes:
*VIP Backstage access to Rebecca Black's World Tour!
*A dinner for two with optional berating prepared by Gordon Ramsey!
*The frozen head of Walt Disney!

(notice: Employees, moderators, owners, members and anyone who has ever heard of snopes.com are ineligible for prize package)

So with that said, who would like to volunteer to be a Panelist?

Mateus, with valuable prizes at stake, have you thought about having the contestants PM you their answers, instead of posting them here?

Oops, forgot one:

9. If the game ends in a tie, that's just too damn bad.

Still need one more panelist

A good idea. I'm fed up with people stealing all of my best answers.

If you still need a panelist sign, me up. All I ask for is a bowl of M & Ms with all the W's removed

Second, playing the part of Richard Dawson...diddy!
Third, playing the part of Brett Somers...Roadie!
Fourth, playing the part of Charles Nelson Reilly...Syllavus!
Fifth, playing the part of MacLean Stevenson...Darth Credence!
And finally, playing the part of Gary Burghoff...Northern Lite!

And of course, your host, Mateus, playing the part of Gene Rayburn!

And so we begin Round One! And since we're celebrating my 3,000th post, every question in this series is a Match Game Classic! I have no idea why; it just works!

Here's the first question:

***Dumb Dora was so dumb, when she went to a baby shower , she brought _______.***

Good Luck, and have your answers in by Thursday!
