TV show description:
Based on a hit Japanese series, this TV game show requires contestants to quickly contort their bodies for cash.
Two teams of three people compete in four rounds: the single wall, the double wall, the triple wall, and the speed wall. Players take their place on the “play area” platform and are then approached by a giant 13′ x 7 1/2′ styrofoam wall which has been cut out in various shapes. Contestants must quickly assume the shape of the cutout in order to fit through it and to avoid being swept away into the pool of water below.
Players who remain standing earn points for their team. In the double and triple wall rounds, all contestants on a team must clear the moving wall in order to win points. In the speed wall round, the Styrofoam moves forward much faster and if a whole team clears it, they win $5,000. The team with the most number of points after the speed round receives $25,000.
The winning team then has a chance to earn $100,000 by facing the blind wall. One blindfolded team member stands on the play area and teammates must call out directions as to how he/she must contort his/her body to make it through the cut out. If teams are tied after the speed wall round, both move on to face the blind wall but split the possible prize and each compete for $50,000.
The show is hosted by Brooke Burns and Mark Thompson.
