I’m only asking cause channel 10 have been hyping this show for so long now I was really hoping for something special. But it seems, a fifth grader must have come up with the concept for this show.
If you have seen, “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”, “100 vs 1” or any of the other Eddie McGuire hosted shows, you’ve basically seen this show. It’s the same formula. The contestant works their way up a ladder of money, starting from $1,000. Along the way they have three “saves” where you can use the fifth grader’s answer.
It’s not that great. At this Rove sucks, he is a complete rip-off of Eddie McGuire, his phrasing and even some of the actual words he uses are the same as Eddie. It’s like watching something from channel 9.
Oh well, just another thing I won’t have to waste my time watching. For that I should be thankful.
Update 20070928: I’ve just found out that this show is another overseas purchase bought and repackaged for Australian audiences. It screened on the Fox network in the states in February 2007.
