101 Ways to Exit a Game Show

Guest Author - Amy Romine

I am not a fan of game shows. In fact, I pretty much hate them. I was not one of those kids who would sit and watch the $25,000 Pyramid, Hollywood Squares, or Crazy Eights when I stayed home sick from school. I am not sure why game shows are such an annoyance to me, but they are. I have slightly changed my opinion on this with the recent introduction of a few amusing game shows like Minute to Win it and now 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show.

The brilliance of the show is the pure cruelty of it. Contestants are put in groups of six and asked a multiple choice question. Each of them get to chose what their answer is, and the incorrect answer gets ejected. Pretty standard, right? Well, here is the catch, if you have the wrong answer any one of many horrific things can happen to you. You could get swooped up via bungee cord into the air by a helicopter or yanked off the dock by a speed boat. You could also be thrown off a building by a rigged podium, dropped down the side of a building via trap door into a lake, or crushed like a hamburger as a monster truck drives over the car you are strapped into.

While this is probably going to be a summer fix for ABC like Wipeout, we may see it back next year, or as a seasonal replacement in the future.

The list goes on and on, and it is hilarious to watch the fear in their eyes as they are ejected from the game one by one. The host is someone I recognized from Nickelodeon of all places. He used to be known as Pick-Boy, and hosts the kids game show Brain Surge. My kids absolutely love this game because it is good for all ages. My six year old usually beats the stuffing out of the sixteen and the ten year olds. It is all about memory and focus. In fact it is great fun for the whole family. My husband and I have played with along with the TV and the kids more than once.

I wanted to mention the recent Emmy nominations. There were a few surprises, a few snubs, and a few what the…? My goal is to go through the nominees in the coming weeks. While I was a little disappointed some of the more impressive shows were left behind, I was very happy to see people like Cat Deeley finally getting noticed. The countdown to the Emmys has begun. This year is being hosted by Jayne Lynch, so it should be a blast!
