101 ways to leave a game show past TV show

TV show description:
On this game show, contestants match wits with one another to try to win a $50,000 prize. The losers leave the competition via one of 101 outrageous stunts.

Eight contestants are first divided into two groups of four and asked a preliminary question. The person who comes closest to the correct answer gets to go first. If anyone answers exactly correct, they receive a $101 bonus.

They are then asked a multiple choice question and the person who won the preliminary round gets to go first. No player can give the same answer as another and all but one answer is correct.

The person who answers incorrectly is literally ejected from the game in a spectacular fashion — pulled off a dock by a speedboat, thrown out of a building, sent over a cliff in a truck, dragged under water by a one ton anchor, dropped from a speeding train, etc. There are four of these rounds each episode and one person is eliminated each time.

The final round is between the four remaining people (two from each group) and staged on a platform that’s 100 feet above water, The Drop of Terror. In this case, only one multiple choice answer is correct and the winner takes the cash. The others hit the water in a big way; dropping through a trap door, falling off a diving board, or some other scary fashion.

Why bring it back? if you like this show at all then you should have made them keep Fear Factor on the air. Its just Fear Factor watered down with the prizes being just as cheap
