1 vs 100: The Game Show

Updated on August 30, 2017

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.

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

(#63 raises his hand)

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

      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.
