Storyline

Four contestants all who stand at podiums arranged in a "Weakest Link"-type circle competed in this hybrid general knowledge quiz-game of chance, where incorrect answers could literally cause them to drop out of the game. Host Walberg posed multiple choice questions to the contestants. Correct answers were worth cash, while an incorrect answer placed him/her at risk for elimination thusly: That contestant pulled a lever, activating a series of lighted circles; if the lighted circle stopped at a vulnerable contestant, a trap door opened beneath that player, eliminating him/her from further competition and causing them to lose all their winnings. The last contestant remaining was the show's champion, received their cash winnings (and those of eliminated opponents), and moved on to the bonus round, where they have the potential to win up to $100,000 (though most daily winners won between $5,000 and $10,000.

What a load of rubbish.
23 November 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

OK, we have a good host and a good announcer, and a HORRIBLE show. It's good that it's a quiz show, but the "falling down the hole" baloney is just that, baloney. And the set is cruddy too. It's darker than the "Weakest Link" set, and I didn't even think that was possible! The ads that Game Show Network runs for the show are horrible too. Whoever concocted this cr@p should be dropped down a trapdoor that they can't get out of!
