Word Grabbers was a game show pilot with seven celebrities, two contestants and incomplete statements.


Each of the seven celebrities had a hidden word. A statement was read and the contestant in control picked the celebrity s/he thought will complete the statement. An incorrect choice caused a funny reaction while a correct choice scored a point plus a chance for that celebrity to answer the statement. Correct matches and correct answers from the celebrities also added $25 or $50 to the pot. The first player to score four points wins the game and the money in the pot.

Bonus GameEdit

In the bonus game, the winning contestant tried to match all seven words to seven more statements in 60 seconds or less. The first win was worth $1,000 and the second win was worth $5,000.


Word Grabbers has been retried two more times in later years. Once in 1991 as Class Clowns and the second time in 2001 as The Smart Alecks.
