This version of Brains and Brawn plays very different the 1993 version.
There were two teams comprising two contestants each: two celebrity guests formed the "Brain" portion (hosted by Davis) and two other contestants formed the "Brawn" portion (hosted by Lescoulie).
- The show's complex structure puzzled audiences and sponsors alike, resulting in the series being sustained by the network and its quick demise.
- A slightly similar show called Brains & Brawn aired for a few months in 1993.
