  • Rules of NBC "1 vs 100"
    Monday, August 14, 2006
    Oh my god. I don't know how, but NBC turned crap to passable in record time. They fixed a lot of issues 1 vs 100 had, even though the escapes are still basically Lifelines from "Who Wants to be a Millionaire". Here are the rules. And yes, this is the logo we found for the show.

    The one is pre-selected and doesn't come from the mob, although mob members may audition to be the one. No category is given, just the question and 3 choices. The player submits his/her answer as the mob members do. If the player is wrong, the player loses everything, which is divided among the remaining mob members and a new One is brought in. If the One is right, all incorrect mob members are eliminated. Scoring is now based on how many are gone and on what question is it. Read the following....

    EPISODES ONE AND TWO
    Question 1- $100 per eliminated member
    Question 2- $250 per eliminated member
    Question 3- $500 per eliminated member
    Question 4- $750 per eliminated member
    Question 5- $1,000 per eliminated member
    Question 6- $1,500 per eliminated member
    Question 7- $2,000 per eliminated member
    Question 8- $3,000 per eliminated member
    Question 9- $4,000 per eliminated member
    Question 10- $5,000 per eliminated member
    Question 11- $6,000 per eliminated member
    Question 12- $7,500 per eliminated member
    Question 13- $10,000 per eliminated member.
    Eliminate all 100- Total bumped up to $1,000,000

    Episode 3+
    Question 1- $100 per eliminated member
    Question 2- $250 per eliminated member
    Question 3- $500 per eliminated member
    Question 4- $1,000 per eliminated member
    Question 5- $2,000 per eliminated member
    Question 6- $3,000 per eliminated member
    Question 7- $4,000 per eliminated member
    Question 8- $5,000 per eliminated member
    Question 9- $6,000 per eliminated member
    Question 10- $7,000 per eliminated member
    Question 11- $8,000 per eliminated member
    Question 12- $9,000 per eliminated member
    Question 13- $10,000 per eliminated member
    Eliminate all 100- Total bumped to $1,000,000

    $10,000 is the glass ceiling, you can't get any more money per eliminated member than that. You can do more questions than that as of now, but $10,000 is the max per person eliminated. The One has the choice of stopping before the question with all of his/her money, or stopping AFTER the question is read with 25% of his/her bank. The player also has two helps. To quote my sources, "the first time the contestant chooses an answer and they light up who in the mob chose that answer, and they get to choose any of them and ask them why they chose that answer. The second time they do this two mob members are randomly selected who chose two different answers, one right and one wrong, and both give their reasons for selecting that answer, therefore eliminating one answer right off the bat." So, it seems like Phone-A-Friend and 50:50, but with mob members involved. Yes, Ken Jennings is in the mob.

    According to our sources: THE SHOW'S TENTATIVE START DATE IS SEPTEMBER 11, 2006. That would most likely be directly after "Deal or No Deal" at 8PM ET.

    I don't know how, but NBC has really turned this game around from a complete piece of crap to something that is rather passable and actually looks to be fun. Be sure to check it out.

      any word on if the money is cumulative?

      example:

      Question 1: 40 people are eliminated.
      Question Total: 40 x $100 =$4000


      Question 2: 20 of the remaining 60 are eliminated:
      Question total: 20 x $250 =$5000
      Total: $4000 + $5000 = $9000

      It is cumulative, yes. I think everyone needs to email NBC and thank them for at least keeping a semi-faithful format and eliminating the crap.

      The least-worst variant they've used by a long, long way.

      Heck, in some ways this is better than the Dutch formula; it's a whole lot clearer (which is one reason why they aren't using the Dutch formula in the first place I presume), there's a fixed prize for anyone beating all 100, and the escapes don't instantly drastically lower the stakes. And every game will result in someone winning something, even if it's a few grand spread across dozens of mob members if someone messes up early (it can happen, I've seen a truly spectacular crash on the Dutch version).

      Not sure what the UK version will be like, but it may well be this. Heck, could it be that the UK decided on something like this and the idea got spread across the Atlantic by one or more Endemol staff?

      Well it's nice to know that the format's better. However I do worry about one thing though...will THE ONE get unlimited time while THE MOB is timed in answering questions? Because if I remember, I have read that the mob was timed with the one having unlimited time.

      I believe the mob still has 10 seconds to answer a question unless that's been changed. The new scoring system is much more workable than the other ones. Plus, a 25% bailout after a question is read is better than 10%. This will provide sone 5 & 6-figure wins to be had on some occasions. As for the logo, nothing eye-catching here. I guess it'll do.

      The mob has 15 seconds to respond, and can change their response anytime within that 15 seconds. A few Mobsters had problems by answering either too early (before keypads are activated) or too late.

      By the way, that is not the logo being used.

      according to epguide.com deal or no deal starts sept 18th. so it would have to start after that unless NBC is going to run it on sept 11th at 8pm cst. I enjoyed bob saget on full house so i hope he does great on this because if he does and the gameplay is tight then I will watch it.
