Pretty intense stuff
31 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This show is a bit like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, with a chance to win £1 million, but is unique in its own way. Hosted by Davina McCall, two contestants (who know each other) come into the show and together answers questions by putting money on an answer that they mostly guess and hope its right. It starts off with four choices of answers and they can bet with different amounts of sums of £25000 wads of cash on three or less answers, though only one is correct, and if they bet on more than one answer, they'll definitely lose some money. They have to go through 8 rounds of questions and the choice of answers decrease to 3 halfway, and then 2 in the last question, where if they choose the correct answer, they go home with the money they have left.

The show does get pretty intense, and is pretty original. You want to see the contestants go away with the highest amount of cash, but you can also learn things about pop culture etc. Viewers can also play along at home online with virtual money.

The most annoying thing I find about this show is the theme music. Davina is actually less annoying here than she was in Big Brother. But I find it silly when she asks questions to the viewers at home on how they're doing, as if we're replying back, and she goes "uh huh".

Overall, its a pretty good game show, but you won't really get stuck into it. It's just something to watch if you have nothing better to do.
