1 vs 100: The Game Show

Updated on August 30, 2017

I love everything weird and colorful in this world and I try to live a life that will make the world a little better once I'm gone.

Do you want the money or the mob?

One contestant will battle 'the mob' of 100 others in an attempt to win big on the game show "1 vs 100". This show followed in ways of "Deal or No Deal" as a social game show with potentially huge payoffs, allowing probability and timing to battle greed - "1 vs. 100" does however a give bit more control to the contestant, as their answers drive the game rather then dumb luck.

The show started with Ken Jennings as a member of the mob, and each week has a different group of people as part of the mob (Mensa members, cheerleaders, teachers, weightlifters, hippies, etc.).

"1 vs. 100" is an import to America, originating in Holland and being an international hit in Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Argentina and Portugal. And, will soon air in primetime on the BBC in the United Kingdom.

1 vs 100 is Back!

The Former Host

As a stand up comedian, actor, and director, Bob Saget has pretty much done it all.

Saget was on Full House from 1987 to 1995. He played the single father of three girls (played by the Olsen twins, Candice Cameron, and Jodie Sweetin).

Being a host is also old hat to Saget who hosted America's Funniest Home Videos from 1990-1997.

By his work on TV, Bob Saget became known in every household in America. Although, anyone who has seen his stand up comedy (or the Aristocrat) knows a very different Saget.

Bob Saget: I have three daughters.

Contestant: Oh, boy!

Bob: No, daughters.


Sister Rose: I know the Seven Deadly Sins, but I don't know Pacman.


Bob: Please, please. We lost another beauty pageant winner. A moment of silence.


Bob: (after the question about what helps puts out fires) Who said C: Gasoline?

Bob: Number 63, what arson squad do you work for?
