Will I get to sit next to my friends/family?
There is no guarantee. It depends how many seats open up in the same area. It is possible that there will only be one seat.

How often will I have to move around?
Movement only happens during commercial breaks and must happen quickly. About 80% of participants, once seated, will never have to move. The rest may move once or twice, usually to a better seat.

Do I have to get up if someone comes back to their seat?
Yes. You should politely rise and move to another empty seat.

Where do I go if someone returns to their seat?
You may move to another empty seat.

Will I always get a seat?
No. It is possible that ALL seats will be full and you will be asked to wait in the holding area.
