Plot Synopsis

In each episode, eight contestants compete for $50,000 as they match wits in a series of multiple choice questions and try to avoid giving a wrong answer, which would cause them to be ejected from the show in spectacular fashion. Contestants are eliminated one-by-one until only four contestants remain, and these four remaining players have a showdown atop a 10-story drop from The Tower with the winner taking home the cash prize. When contestants give incorrect answers in the early rounds, they leave the show by being: strapped down to the wing of a soaring bi-plane; pushed off the side of a speeding 18-wheeler; flipped upside down in an exploding car; launched sky-high by a crate of dynamite; towed across a lake by a speeding powerboat; crushed beneath a huge monster truck; sunk by cannon fire; yanked thousands of feet into the air by a helicopter; dragged underwater by a one-ton anchor; and more than 90 other outlandish ways to leave a game show.
