9 out of 10 -- the Illinois question is not right!

Can anyone explain why METV changed how they went about asking where so and so was from? I don't think there would have been any confusion, {or mistakes on METV's part,} had they asked all of the questions the same way that they asked about David. Which country was he from? I think METV was trying to be cute and clever in the way they wound up asking the questions. For example, instead of having Betty White, Bob Newhart and Dick Van Dyke in two separate questions, they could have had them in one. The question might have read: "Which one was not born in the same city?" or "Which two were born in the same city?" Something like that. I don't recall them having done this before: start a quiz by asking questions one way, then after a couple, the format changes. To quote Vinnie Barbarino: "I'm so confused!"

You got 8 out of 11
Don't feel bad if you got a little turned around. Some of these TV stars became awfully fond of other places.

10/11, some by guessing, some by deduction.

I just took this quiz and I have to admit that there are a few flaws here. On Question 3 and 7, the questions were respectively: "Pick the TV star who was NOT born in California:" and "Pick the TV star who was NOT born in Illinois:" I picked Betty White for the first one and Dick Van Dyke for the second one and each time, the service told me I was wrong. I remember reading that Betty White was born in Oak Park, Illinois (the same place Bob Newhart was born) and as far Dick Van Dyke's concerned, I thought I heard that he was born in a state that started with the letter "M." So I figured he was the right answer. I went to the Internet and it said that he was born in West Plains, Missouri, so that should count as a right answer. I wound up getting 7 out of 11 when I should've gotten 9 out of 11. Personally, I don't think that's fair. The ones that I really got wrong were the first and the last questions. The rest, I feel, I got right especially #3 and #7.
Over the years, I remember DVD {and others} referring to his and his brother Jerry's growing up town as Danville IL. So, I assumed, like you did, that DVD would be the right choice. Like you said, all 3 choices are right. METV should have had choice D. "All the above" for the correct answer. I just "Googled" Danville, and found out he grew up there, {not sure how old he was when he and his parents moved there.} Jerry, however, was born and raised in Danville.
Everyone who got {in the eyes of METV,} "certain answers" wrong, should obviously count those answers as right and adjust their scores, accordingly.
MY BAD! I had Betty White's picture mixed up w/Dick' & Bob's. So of course, there would be no choice D!
Bless you! Bless you a heck of a lot! That was a serious compliment. All I will say is this: For Questions #3 and #7, they should've said respectively, "Pick the TV star who was born in California:" and "Pick the TV star who was born in Illinois:" I feel that if they had done that to begin with, I wouldn't have made a complaint about it. You want to know something? I'm beginning to think that this was what they meant to do to begin with because I've just finished researching Barry Williams and Wikipedia said that he was born in Santa Monica, California. But by the time they had finished posting this quiz, the mistakes were made and it was too late for them to fix them. Yeah, I think that's it. I think that's it!
