Based on a British format, eight contestants compete to answer questions; those who answer incorrectly exit in spectacular fashion.

RulesEdit

Eight contestants compete in a series of rounds, all involving answering multiple choice questions. Before each round (players chosen at random for the first), each player must give an answer to a numerical question to determine the playing order. Hitting the answer on the head wins a $101 bonus.

A multiple choice question with four answers is presented, and each player in order chooses an answer. Those who select the three right answers remain in the game; the loser exits in one of 101 fashions.

There are five rounds; with one player eliminated after each one.
