How’s this for a zany TV format?
Endemol’s UK game show 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show is now coming to ABC in America.
It’s a standard multiple-choice format and a $50,000 cash prize.
But the twist comes after contestants actually lose.
Each of them is ejected from the show in a spectacular fashion: being flown away strapped to the wing of a biplane, shot out of a cannon, pushed off the top of a moving semi-truck, dragged underwater by a one-ton anchor or yanked off a dock by a speedboat. Yikes.
The show is filmed at the Wipeout facility in Benavídez, Argentina and has been airing in six countries, including the UK.
Are we next?
