Six contestants spend a day with each other competing in various physical and mental challenges. During this evaluation day players decide who's good/lacking in various elements of trivia and strength. The next day, game day, challenges are presented and the gameplayers vote for the person they think most likely to fail the challenge. If the person fails, they are banished to the Dog Pound. But if the successfully complete the stunt, they then vote off one of the people who voted for them. Players are whittled down until only two remain. They then compete in a head to head competition to discover who's the Top Dog. But it's not over yet! The Top Dog then gets five question categories (ie: Sports, Politics, Entertainment) and must choose which player from the Dog Pound they want to answer each one. If the Top Dog chooses wisely and manages to get the pound members to answer three incorrectly, he/she wins the pot of $25,000. But if the Pound members answer three correctly, they split ...

Host, Brooke Burns personally said that her favorite "prank" among the Dog Eat Dog games is when the competitor has to strip off what he or she is wearing, as they try to complete their challenge, she calls it "strip darts". See more »
Well,it's not really high television but it's entertaining
I personally really like this show. It combines all the things that you like to see in a fun, forgettable, non-confrontational game show.
1. It has a good looking host. This is a must. Brooke Burke is no Chuck Woolery in the charisma department but she makes up for it by being a bombshell.
2. Meaningless competition. While there is a cash prize of $25,000 at the end of each episode, no one in the audience cares who wins or loses. They are much more involved in the "meaningless competition", which in this show is less about eating odd animal parts and more about completing entertaining tasks that have no real value except to provide the contestants an opportunity to show off their taut bodies.
3. Taut Bodies. I'm fairly certain that the only reason this show stayed on the air as long as it did was because it frequently involved girls changing into their swimsuits.
4. The odd man out. You may be wondering what this is. This is the contestant that is not like the others. In a lineup of five other normal looking "coeds" there's always one goth guy with a bunch of tattoos and long "elvish" hair or some idiot with a tongue ring and a mohawk. This contestant's elimination is always extremely entertaining.
So there you have it. If you have satellite TV and an hour to kill, check out dog-eat-dog on gsn.
