|A new Belfast Telegraph was posted today, stating Endemol is looking for more contestants for the BBC edition of "1 s 100", which they are sure will be a giant hit. The game is simple: defeat 100 other people in a trivia game for a giant cash prize. The game has been sold in 15 countries and is rumored to be starting in September on NBC. The UK tryout will be at Belfast's Express Holiday Inn (University Street) on August 18th. The really interesting thing is that it says the host is UK "Deal or No Deal" host Noel Edmonds. Here's the quote...
The Endemol Productions project, 1 Vs 100, is described as a "exciting new quiz show " which has already been sold to some 15 countries around the world.
The programme, presented by Noel Edmonds, which is currently a huge hit for NBC in America, follows a simple format and pits one person against 100 others in an intense battle of brains with the chance to win a big cash prize. "
So take that as you will, who knows. Either they got the "huge hit" part wrong, or the Noel Edmonds part wrong. Time will tell. Check back for updates later.
