Bobcat's Big-Ass Show was a game show hosted by comedian Bobcat Goldthwait.


The first part of the show featured contestants playing three games mainly based on Truth or Dare? The winner of that game would become one of three finalists in a final round.

One example of a stunt involved toy animals, and it was the contestants' job to act out getting chomped by the animal on the face (the stunt's name as an example was "When Animals Attack").

The second part involved the three winners of each game, with each contestant begging and pleading to the audience why he or she wanted to go on the grand prize vacation. Each contestant "begged" for six seconds, and after each contestant was finished pleading, the audience cheered depending on how each contestant did. The contestant with the most enthusiastic response from the audience went on to the bonus round.

The bonus round was called "Guess My Secret!" The contestant had a steel-gray helmet lowered onto his or her head while the losers of the show each told Bobcat three secrets, one of which was true, and it was up to Bobcat and the audience to guess. After that, the contestant removed the helmet and tried to match Bobcat's correct answers within 60 seconds (the clock was displayed on a computerized pink wine glass that tilted from side-to-side like a pendulum as each second ticked off the clock). Matching each loser's secrets won the trip.
