"YOU BET YOUR ASS" is a hip trivia based game show that challenges your recall but has fun doing it. It has echoes of WIN BEN STEIN'S MONEY with its dead pan but hilarious male host, its sexy female co-host, and its double entrende loaded categories. I watched several episodes before I noticed Sitara was handing out Canadian dollars (or as the Americans call it, Monopoly Money). I guess the small money pay outs should have tipped me off that it was a Canadian series as they are notorious for being frugal to the extreme. However, I was equally impressed as this is the first wholly Canadian game show since DEFINITION that I am hooked on. "You Bet Your Ass" has "ass" based sub categories like "Your Ass On the Line" and, although it does have the odd geography or science question, the questions are largely Pop Culture based which should give it a larger following. I wish the best for this breath of fresh air game show that, although the title sounds insulting, does not insult your intelligence.
