1 vs 100: The Game Show

Updated on January 8, 2012

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!

On The Gameshow Network

In November 2010, GSN launched a new version of 1 vs 100 launches hosted by Carrie Ann Inaba, who is now one of the judges on Dancing with the Stars.

      Bob Saget. No competition in my opinion. I like Carrie Ann Inaba on dancing with the stars but never really cared for her on 1 vs 100.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Because I watched Bob Saget more and I have not seen very many Carrie Inaba's because they have not been on GSN very much and it's been a long time since any versions of 1 vs. 100 came on to GSN

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Bob Seget is so funny. I don't feel he gets to show his true personality on the show but he is still better than who ever the other person is. I didn't care for her...not much of a personalitly for a game show host.

      Game play and winnable money changed greatly with the "new" version, as well as the mob in video boxes instead of you seeing live people. The new version is absolutely horrible and Carrie Ann is nothing on that show but a distraction with her short skirts and low-cut tops.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I loved Bob Saget from his tv program.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      if you pick carrie inaba our gay as hell

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      BOBBY BOY!

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Bob.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      i don't like carrie ann inaba she has no personality. Bob Saget was a much better host for this show. I don't watch the show anymore. The mob also sucks.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      It was a lot mor enjoyable with bob saget and Carrie Ann Inaba dresses to slutty...

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      The old is much better! They need to go back to the original formula. Bob Saget was a great host. He does not draw the "cliff hangers" out too long.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      1st of all Carrie outfits are cute.lol but um the reason i like Bob Saget version more is because its more live.And the prizes are more and the new one just seem fake and unreal and then the thing where it depends on how much ppl you knock and the money goes up..idk its not interesting anymore. I say the old is better.

    • dukiedog 5 years ago

      He is much funnier than Carrie

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Bob was by far funnier! And I have that it's through web chatting. The whole show looks cheap now.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Carrie Ann makes the show look cheap. Her clothes are too tight and far too short for her weight and her age. Hook hooks don't belong on the street. Sorry Carrie Ann, your wardrobe people are playing jokes on you. If you dress yourself, you got to be kidding.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Bob Saget was funnier, and he is a lot better host then this stupid chick.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      bob sargent much better host

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Ugh! What next? Are the Deal or No Deal girls going to go away & be shown on little video screens holding their cases? Boring. Bring back the live Mob!! And while you're at it, bump the prize money back up & ask some more intelligent questions. Geez . . .

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Live mob was much more entertaining & brought a certain energy to the game that is LOST on the giant video screen--too impersonal. Prefer Bob Saget's personality & humor, as well. And why did the questions get so dumbed-down?! They are so stupid now, I can't bear to watch & change the channel.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I like the old version much better. Carrie Ann clothes are much too tight and mush too short.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        il ike to tickle her bare feet

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        She has a lot more personality than Bob Saget. I always thought he sounded false.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        Carrie Ann would be ok if she would learn how to dress. To wear what she wears, she needs to lose at least 50 pounds. Give her a sad face.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        new 1vs100

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I have stopped watching 1 vs 100 because I do not like the way you have the mob. It is much better when they were really there in person. bring back the old fomat so I can injoy watching 1 vs 100 again.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I like Carrie Ann Inaba but I do not like the way you have the mob. I perfer the old version for seeing the mob. I find it very hard to view the people in the mob. go back to the old version where the people are actually sitting there.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        carie ann boobs are so betiful

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        If you are hating on how Carrie looks, you are either Gay or an ugly chick. So which one are you? Lls. I love her outfits and her body. It's the best part of the show.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        Carrie Anne is GREAT !

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I like both versions of the show but put the hostess on an outfit that so the whole family can watch the show, instead of conplaining about her dress that would fit an eight year old.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I hate it with carrie ann. You need a dress code for her. She wears some clothes that look absolutely ridiculous. She just squeezes herself into them and not one outfit that I have seen her wear fits her. Please get someone on there that does not look indecent in their clothes. It is an embarrasment to the show. Either that or buy her clothes for her that fit.

      This game is simple.

      Either you will win...

      or they will win.

      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.

          THE DROP FROM 1 MILLION TO $50,000 IS BAD ENOUGH, BUT THE INCREMENTS THE CONTESTANTS RECEIVE IS LUDICROUS. VIEWERS SUCH AS MYSELF WANT THE CONTESTANT TO WIN, IT'S A VICARIOUS THRILL. THE NEW GAME IS GEARED FOR THE MOB TO WIN. THE CONTESTANT ONLY WIN IF THEY DROP OUT AT A LOW AMOUNT. THEY HAVE TO ELIMINATE 80 PEOPLE BEFORE THEY CAN EVEN REACH $10,000, HOW FAIR IS THAT? TO GET HALFWAY , $25,000 THEY HAVE TO ELIMINATE 90 PEOPLE. HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY JUSTIFY THIS? I HATE TO WATCH BECAUSE IT IS ALMOST A SURE BET THAT THE CONTESTANT WILL LOSE. EVEN THE OLD GAME SHOW THE PYRAMID GAVE THE CONTESTANT A CHANCE TO WIN $1100 OR EVEN $5000 BEFORE THEY EVEN TRIED FOR THE $10,000 OR THE $25,000. IT IS UNFAIR, UNJUST AND JUST PLAIN WRONG!

          @MargoPArrowsmith: That is correct GSN doesn't have any new shows where the top prize is $1000000+. They should get a better host and raise the top prize to at leat 500000 (i rather prefer 1000000)

          I didn't know they relaunched this so I'll have to check out at least one show. I prefer comedians as gameshow hosts as they usually make them more fun but I'll give this new host a chance. I really miss the Xbox Live version of this. I actually won on there...wasn't a million bucks though sadly :)

          I don't watch much TV (Squidooing), but did enjoy trying to answer questions when I saw it. I can't believe how little some people know about common knowledge. A fun reason to make a Squidoo lens and well done turning it into a due!

          I think Carrie and will get better as she gets used to being there, she had herself toned down a lot last night.

          But I think they aren't giving her a fair shot.

          1. The half hour is not enough time to play the game AND do the interaction between the mob, the host and the contestant.

          2. I understand that the GSN can't give away as much money, but since most people won at least $100,000 in the old show, seeing people get all hyped up over a couple of thou and knowing that if they do the same thing the people did on the other show...in the other they got a million and here $50,000, well its anti climatic.

          3. I HATE the nonsense with having the mob on computers. You just can't interact the same way and that is a lot of what I liked with the first show

          @anonymous: Watched the 1st. show of the new season and TOTALLY HATED IT! Carrie Ann Inaba couldn't host my back yard barbecue. Was a great show with a good format and now it sucks. You lowered the prize money, took away a help and put in a cyber mob. You took away the fun and excitement. I WON'T WATCHED IT AGAIN.

          Ok Hi, I reside and am a National of a tiny island called Bermuda about 2hrs from the U.S east coast. As an international country, we never get to particiapate in any of the games or shows of the U.S. that we love and watch so much of. So I ask if there is anyway I could possible become a 1 vs 100 contestant as I have a tremendous U.S bill at Lahey hostpital in Boston to pay from an aneursym I had earlier this Aug 2010, at the moment I also am not employed back at home from these circumstances. Thank you for taking a moment to read and consider this.
