How Do You Like Your Eggs? was a series of unsold pilots for a proposed interactive game show.

Main GameEdit

Two married couples competed on this show about people's opinions. The people making their opinions are the home viewers who cast their votes using their QUBE consoles. The teams took turns predicting what the most popular answer to a question would be. Each question has five possible answers (later four). Each member of the controlling team chose separately, and if either one of them chose the right answer, they scored a point; but if they both chose the right answer, they scored two points. Upon scoring two points, they had a chance to steal one point from their opponents by guessing the least popular answer; but if they can't, the point was stolen from them to their opponents; later there was no risk in losing a point. The first couple to score five points won the game and their own Pong video game. The losers received dinner for two at Jai Lai.

Perfector RoundEdit

In the bonus round called "Perfector", host Cullen read one more question with five more answers. The idea here for the winning couple is to put the answers in order from the most popular to the least popular. Each correct placement is worth $10 (later $50), and putting all five answers in order won a new color TV.

MusicEdit
