  • "One Versus 100" Lowers Top Prize + "Set For Life" Taping
    Thursday, August 10, 2006
    Report coming in from Craigslist: The much publicized $3,000,000 top prize of NBC's new game show "One Versus 100" is no more. It is now being listed as a $1,000,000 top prize. Well at least this is a step in the right direction; no $2,500,000 gap.

    Also, ABC's hour long edition of the "Powerball: Instant Millionaire" bonus round, known as "Set For Life" begins taping next week.

      Either way you look at it though, either way was a dumb idea. Lowering the top prize of $1,000,000 is risktaking because we want to see shows with more then just a million. If I were the execs of NBC (which would be better than whoever it is now), I would have made them change the prize ladder around where it would look better while keeping the top prize to $3,000,000.

      I think that might be a typo, have you confirmed this with anyone besides the craigslist listing?

      The NBC site and casting call there still say the top prize is $3 million.

      And you know what I'm going to say but I'll say it anyway... why didn't they just use the Dutch formula with $500,000 as the base value?

      That would have set up a theoretical top prize of not quite $3.1m, but this would never have even been approached. To reduce the all-or-nothing element you could replace the doubler (thus knocking the top prize down to $2.6m) with the ability to walk, perhaps giving half your winnings to the mob (a wrong answer would still cause the mob to get everything).

      At least the third escape has raised the jackpot portion where the solo player can walk with 25% of the pot if they pass off on the question.
