  • Season 2 Episode 5: Episode 11

  • Once Gabriel wins his third Duel, Mike informs him that if he chooses to continue to compete, he will only be risking one half of his winnings.

  • Season 2 Episode 1: Episode 201

  • The format of the program has been changed for its second season. Episodes now run once a week, with contestants playing for up to $50,000 in individual matches. Contestants may win an additional prize of $500,000 by winning five duels. Contestants, however, must risk their winnings each time they choose to accept another duel. Chips wagered are no longer worth any money, instead, a money ladder is used that increases the longer a duel continues. At the end, the winner of the duel is given an opportunity to double their money on a single question, but does not lose the money if they answer this question incorrectly.

  • Season 1 Episode 4: Episode 4

  • As of this point, potential contestant from the contestant pool, Pat Santucci ("The Software Engineer") of Dayton, Ohio, has been chosen at random as a possible opponent out of three a total of six times, but has not yet been selected. This is the most times a contestant has appeared as one of three choices, but not been selected to play. Potential contestants out of the pool of 24 on Duel are not guaranteed a chance to play at any point during the week.

  • The show's growing jackpot, which one contestant will win on the Sunday championship, passed the one million dollar mark in this episode.
