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.

I want to marry Mark L Walberg, oh yeah, the show's good, too
28 December 2002 | by mille52See all my reviews

THIS SHOW IS AWESOME. What genius came up with the idea of people falling through holes in the floor. My father doesn't watch much television, but when he does, he often talks about how the "boob tube" has gone completely, well, down the tubes. When he watches Russian Roulette, he gets so excited! Anytime someone falls he just goes into fits of giggles. The questions are really challenging and seeing people fall down holes (and they're genuinely scared) is just good quality television.

Mark L. Walberg is absolutely adorable, and I am so glad to see that he has moved on from Temptation Island. He is really funny and obviously is pleased to see people drop through the floor. Two thumbs up for Russian Roulette and its charming host!
