  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (1)

    • During the mob introduction Bob Saget: Hello, Ken. Ken, you're no stranger to these kind of games. Is that correct? Ken Jennings: No, Jeopardy! has three players. This is like Jeopardy! on speed.

    Notes (4)

    • Brian asked a Deal or No Deal model why she answered the way she did, instead of asking Ken Jennings.

    • The first contestant, Brian DeCato, used to play Extreme Dodgeball for the New York Bling during the show's last season.

    • Format for help is as follows --- the contestant is allowed to ask the Mob for help on a question twice. The first time the contestant asks for help, they choose one of the multiple choice answers and the members of the Mob that selected that answer light up. The contestant then chooses one member of the Mob to give a further explanation as to why they selected that answer. The second time the contestant asks for help, two members of the Mob are selected. One has the right answer and one has the wrong answer. Both members speak as to why they chose that answer. Members of the Mob are required to answer honestly when the contestant asks for help, even though it would not benefit them. It was revealed in a later episode, though, that although the Mob member cannot lie about the answer they chose, they may lie about why they chose it.

    Trivia (1)

    • On the very first question of the show about "Seabiscuit," Bob said that nobody in the mob missed that question, but when the mob was answering the question, during a close-up of a mob member's keypad, you clearly see him pressing answer B (the answer to the question was C).

    Allusions (1)

    • Bob Saget after shaking Brain's hand holds out his hand in a fist as Howie Mandel does on Deal or No Deal saying, Bob Saget: Let's do this. Brian and Bob's fist touch Bob Saget: Please don't touch me. This joke is an allusion to the TV show Deal or No Deal, which was the lead in for the premiere episode of 1 vs 100.
