Kreskin at the Gemini AwardsThe Amazing Kreskin joined host Jason Priestley LIVE throughout the 23rd Gemini Awards Show; broadcast on E! Entertainment and Showcase Channel on Friday, November 28, 2008 at 8pm, throughout Canada to correctly predict the winners from specific nominated categories by reading MC, Jason Priestley’s mind live, on television!

Kreskin is seen here locked in the soundproofed room located on stage but behind curtains. Two certified accountants stood by to confirm he had no visual or audio access to the program. At the end of each Gemini Awards segment, Kreskin used his unique ability to read Jason Priestley’s thoughts as to who the winner was. Priestley then joined Kreskin and together they revealed Kreskin’s predictions. Correct as always!

THE MENTALIST KRESKIN AT GEMINIS, review

Posted by kreskin On December - 2 - 2008

This past week, my wife and I watched the Gemini Awards on television. The Geminis recognize the very best in Canadian broadcast television. My son works in production for the Survivorman series and they were nominated for three awards. The show was well produced with a great deal of interesting personalities on and off the stage, the red carpet, and all the goodies that you would normally expect to see in a show like this.

For me, an appearance by The Amazing Kreskin stole the show.

I recall being fascinated by Kreskin in my youth and we were faithful viewers of the show. His basic premise was always the same – he is a mentalist and has you sitting on the edge of your chair as he does his thing. He could always read minds, or make predictions, or somehow do that little extra something that put him above the audience and left us all in awe. He was the ultimate showman and performed his parts with such flair. Years later, he still has the flair and enthusiasm that I so fondly remember. On the show, he predicted a couple of the winners by tuning into host Jason Priestley’s thoughts! To ensure the integrity of these predictions, he was locked into a sound proofed glass booth with a couple of accountants to keep tabs on him. Of course, the great mentalist was correct. Who would have doubted it?

However, it was his style and his flair that came through during the broadcast that kept us interested and intrigued in his predictions. So, what’s the deal with the props? After all, couldn’t he just have written the predictions on a piece of paper and it just be turned over at the end of the bit? Sure he could. I would also have changed the channel.…December 2008 GEC Computers in the Classroom Newsletter,

The Amazing Kreskin is developing a reality TV show in which he’ll help police with unsolved investigations. The project, “POI: Persons of Interest,” follows thought-reader Kreskin as he assists law enforcement in gathering information that could help solve open missing-persons or criminal cases.

Kreskin and his partner on the show, producer Katy Wallin, are shopping the half-hour series to cable networks and already have shot a pilot in which the mentalist helps solve a case involving Scott Javins, a college student from Indiana who disappeared in 2002.

Wallin, who said “POI” has been in development for more than a year, noted the similarities with CBS’ new police procedural drama “The Mentalist,” which joins the network’s schedule in the fall at 9 p.m. Tuesdays. That series stars Simon Baker as a celebrity psychic who puts his observational skills to better use working for law enforcement.

“There’s an uncanny similarity between our pilot and the forthcoming CBS series ‘The Mentalist,”‘ Wallin said. “There is one basic and major difference: ‘POI’ is not fiction and stars the real mentalist.”

Kreskin, who recently has been serving as a consultant to law enforcement and security personnel, created the project with Indiana state investigator John Kleiman. Kreskin said the project is “a great chance to bring closure to families who need it.” 11/11/08

NEW YORK (December 3, 2007) – The Amazing Kreskin, the world’s foremost (original) mentalist, considered by many to be the Godfather of the modern mentalist movement, is making his boldest prediction to date. Almost one year in advance of the general election for the President, The Amazing Kreskin has recorded down his prediction of the winner in next November and will present it at The World Bar on Thursday, December 6, 2007 at a 12:30pm press conference. Although he will not reveal his prediction yet, Kreskin will present a lockbox containing the prediction at The World Bar where it will remain on display until the day after next year’s election, when it will be revealed to the world once and for all.

This prediction represents the biggest, most long range challenge in The Amazing Kreskin’s Fifty Year career. “I am staking my reputation on this prediction,” remarked Kreskin, “and I’m completely confident that I’ve picked the winner. There is no doubt in my mind!” The World Bar will display Kreskin’s prediction-lockbox on the shelf behind the bar for the public to clearly view and to ensure there is no tampering.
