“I don’t think it has sunk in, actually,” he told the Daily Telegraph yesterday.
In the US the show is hosted by Drew Carey with a $10M prize, but the Aussie version will stick to $1M. The show produced by FremantleMedia uses Newspoll to survey Australians with its questions. Already it sounds like a variation on Family Feud…..
“This show is a little bit more relaxed than other quiz shows. There is a bit more ad-libbing. It’s a really good vibe,” he said.
“The questions are really designed to get a little bit of a rise out of people. Some of the questions are serious and some are ridiculous,” Jacobs said.
The show will have an initial run of eight episodes before Nine decides whether ratings are good enough to order more.
What percentage of Australian men think they look good in Speedos?
What percentage of Australians would leave their partner if they gained 30 kilos?
What percentage of Australians said they have let a dog lick them on the mouth?
You’ll be gobsmacked by the answers as the Nine Network’s new million-dollar game show reveals some intriguing statistics about Aussies in Power of 10, which premieres next month.
Hosted by Steve Jacobs, Power of 10 is a high-stakes, high-tech game show that puts contestants through a brain-teasing test to see whether they’ve got their finger on the pulse of the nation.
The contestant who can most accurately predict how Australians will respond to a range of diverse and quirky poll questions could walk away with $1,000,000.
It takes just five questions to reach millionaire status as the prize money escalates in increments of a multiple of 10, starting with $100 then jumping to $1000, $10,000 and $100,000 before tempting contestants with a life-changing $1,000,000. As the prize money goes up so to do the stakes as contestants try to remain calm and collected in order to tap into the mindset of a nation.
Power of 10 reaches out to each state of Australia, with the Nine Network enlisting Newspoll Online, one of the leading public opinion polling companies, to survey thousands of people across the country.
Power of 10, which is recorded at the studios of Channel Nine Melbourne, was created Michael Davies of Embassy Row in New York. It is produced for the Nine Network by FremantleMedia.
