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.

It's a fun show to watch
7 January 2003 | by Carmen-5See all my reviews

The show is a simple one, but a fun one nevertheless. The questions aren't too hard overall so it's pretty easy to play along. And, I gotta say, watching contestants fall through trapdoors is just fun to watch.

I read they fall about six feet to the padding below. Well, you'd have to figure it's got to be a descent drop since the contestant vanishes out of sight.

This is one of my favorite Game Show Network Originals. I have fun playing along and watching contestants take the fall. Mark makes a good host. He keeps the the show on pace and interacts well with the contestants.

Give this show a chance and just have some fun viewing!
