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.

User Reviews

A brilliant game show.
30 June 2002 | by youngmenschSee all my reviews

"Russian Roulette" is a great game show. The falling down holes concept is interesting, memorable contestants are cast and host Mark L. Walberg is great. He actually has personality and makes jokes unlike many of the other hosts on Game Show Network. Sadly, it looks like it will be canceled in a matter of weeks. Good luck Russian Roulette.
