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 ...Written by
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 »
I hate to be cynical.. But depicts Americans as Idiots
Okay.. I realize that standards are falling, and the nation is becoming dumber and dumber as less and less books are being read, and more shows like this are being thrown on the air. The sad thing, is Americans are buying into it. The game show is based upon six contestants who are playing as a "team", yet constantly bashing each other, and attempting to widdle away at the the team until one person is remained standing. Then once one person is left, they set it up so that the other 5 contestants answer trivia questions at the end to try to take and split the money that the sole contestant has earned. What makes it a poor competitive game show, is that the sole contestant doesn't even get to answer the questions.. He merely gets to pick who gets to answer them... Where is the competition in that? That is hardly my main contention with the program... My biggest problem with the show, is that it makes the whole country look like idiots. If these are the finest that America has to put on a game show, we are in big trouble. I mean, supposedly, 6 average people are put into this "competition", and sadly the product is utter stupidity. Every two seconds they are blindly insulting each other, passing judgements, while the innocent seeming hostess reads off her cue cards, and asks provoking questions. The sad thing is American teens are eating it up. It has everything MTV has prescribed for this generation: A by standards hot host, verbal abuse, and conflict. What is the point? Why don't they just give each contestant their share of the money to run around naked and swear at each other? Now don't get me wrong, I am by no means a conservative thinker... However, It upsets me to see people buy into this crap. Is this what the future of television is going to be like? Is this an indication of what the future of America is going to be like?
So.. If you are 13, and want to see something entertaining to your sex drive and adrenaline, get a dirty magazine.. If you want to watch an hour of trash, watch "Dog eat Dog".
