Battle of the Sexes: In the Battle of the Sexes, the men were two-for-two. Katherine "Katie" Karzola lost to the all-male Mob, and the remaining 39 split $50,000. Jason Luda then defeated all 100 members of the all-female Mob to win one million dollars.
Big Winner: Jason Luda, a 21-year-old from San Diego, CA who has never had a girlfriend or even gone on a date in this life before is 1 vs. 100's first million dollar winner. The final question he faced asked which holiday is the biggest when it comes to giving cards. The answer choices were A.) Christmas, B.) Mother's Day and C.) Valentine's Day. After reasoning it out, Jason decided to lock in which A.) Christmas. Before revealing whether this answer was correct, Bob Saget revealed that all fifteen of the remaining members in the all female Mob had answered incorrectly. He then revealed that Jason had indeed chosen the correct answer and was the show's first million dollar winner. Asked for his reaction, Jason commented that it hadn't even really hit him yet.
Big Money: This season features a new money ladder and a new mechanism for how the money is won. Gone is the format of the previous season where the only big dollar amount was a million dollars (which nobody won in that season) and the most anyone could win below that was around $200,000 to $300,000. The new dollar ladder is as follows: $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $25,000, $50,000, $100,000, $250,000, $500,000 and finally one million dollars. Money is no longer added for each Mob Member eliminated. Instead, a milestone is reached each time ten Mob Members are eliminated. As always, the contestant may choose to take the money instead of the Mob, but only before seeing the next question. If at any time they answer a question incorrectly, the money they've won to that point is split among the remaining Mob Members who answered that question correctly.
Mob Money: This feature replaced the "You vs. 100" play-along-at-home mechanism seen in the first season of the show.

Raul Torres, who lost $263,000 in Episode Fifteen was given $10,000 to gamble by Dennis Asterna, who was one of five Mob members to claim those winnings. Raul had expressed a desire on the program to live the life of a high-roller. He wagered the money on a single hand of blackjack and won to a dealer bust.
