Does anyone here know how he can ask a spectator to think of any card, and then guess it by looking at them? Is this faked for TV, or is there some legitimacy to it?

I think this is one secret we can reveal to everyone, because I HATE TV magic specials with camera tricks. Basically, he asked tons of people, and only the ones he guessed right made the TV show.... It was a sham... which is unfortunate, because I like some of his tricks, and now if I see one I can't figure out, I'm prone to think he just fakes it with camera tricks.

Yeppers...if I can't figure it out, then it usually is camera trickery. But then again, most of Blaines "fakers" I figured out because honestly some of the camera trickery wasn't the best. The first time I saw him levitate I knew he was doing something cool, but not what you see on TV. Watch it if you have it, and you'll notice how the only time the camera "cuts away" is when they show his feet, and the film "look" is slightly different. Caught that one the first time I saw it.

Maybe not real camera trickery on some but lots and lots of editing. Like with the name appearing on the arm in ashes. You don't see him ask the people to write it again. His healed and sealed with a borrowed can. pick an odd 2 digit number between 20 and 50 37. Most of us could do most of his tricks. edited most are on sale here. Bite thru coin, heeled and sealed, levitation trick, rising deck of cards.
