About the Show

101 Ways to Leave a Game Show is an American quiz show produced by Endemol and based on the British format which sees contestants compete to be the winner of a $50,000 prize by picking the right answers to general knowledge questions.

Competitors who pick wrong answers are eliminated from the game in a variety of different ways, usually involving a large drop into a pool of water.

The series aired in the USA on ABC from 21 June to 26 July, 2011. There are six hour-long episodes in one season.

101 Ways to Leave a Game Show originally aired in South Africa on M-Net and DStv's M-Net HD channel from 1-15 January, 2012, on Sundays at 17h00. New episodes broadcast in a double bill, weekly. The series later aired on DStv's Vuzu channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

The series premiered on Vuzu on Sunday 5 August 2012, at 22h00. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

From the producers of Wipeout and based on Endemol's successful worldwide format, 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show features contestants competing in one of the most insane game shows in history for a chance to win $50,000.

In "101 Ways," contestants match wits in a series of multiple choice questions, with one contestant being eliminated every round.

But unlike any other game show in the world, the eliminated contestant is then ejected from the show in spectacular fashion, i.e., being flown away strapped to the wing of a biplane, shot out of a cannon, pushed off the top of a moving semi truck, dragged underwater by a one ton anchor or yanked off a dock by a speed boat.

The show is hosted by Jeff Sutphen.

Incorporating action-packed stunts that eject contestants so outlandishly within the show is sure to keep contestants and viewers on the edge of their seats, having no idea what to expect next.

The show is produced by Endemol USA. Matt Kunitz serves as the executive producer. David Goldberg is the chairman of Endemol North America.
