A five-person team, headed by a captain and determined by a random sweepstakes drawing, must work their way up the Tower of Greed to a jackpot of $2,000,000. The catch: during the course of the game, each team member has the chance to eliminate another member and take their cash by challenging them to a one-question showdown known as "The Terminator."

OK, so it was a Millionaire rip-off. But enough of that. Woolery did a really good job hosting. Overall not a bad show, but there was one huge problem that stuck out. Why did they rely on polls and obscure facts for the upper 4 questions? Couldn't they come up with something that we might actually be able to guess? Like dates? As for the no safe haven thing on that show, it creates a scenario in which a person that took the terminator opportunity and was eliminated actually won more than the other contestants!
Too many flaws, otherwise not a bad show. Maybe a safe haven would have been something to consider, since the top 4 questions were ones that I don't think anyone would be able to get easily?
