After this, the three possible partners are shown. Commercial is next. After about 2 minutes round one begins. Round 1- All contestants are in their pods. They can not hear anything but Kennedy's voice. She gives everyone $200 to start. She reads a multiple choice question. The teams must agree on an answer. Once they come up with one, they lock it in. When they all have locked in, or when the 15 seconds are up, she says the answer. If they are right, they get $500. The team with the lowest amount after 4 questions is the loser. If there is a tie, according to the FOF rules, the team who took the longest to answer loses. Then, the losers enter the trust box. Trust Box- Each member gets some time to tell why they should be considered a friend. Then, they put their hand inside the box. Inside is a button. If they do not press it, they are friends. If they do, they are foes. The money- 1- friend and friend- split money 2- friend and foe- foe takes money 3- foe and foe- pot is lost Then, Kennedy reveals the choices. Then, that team leaves. Round 2- Same as Round 2, but questions are worth $1000.If there is a tie in round 2 a tie breaker question for no money is asked. Round 3-The team has 60 seconds.Kennedy asks 10 questions. Each is worth $500. If they get all ten correct, Kennedy doubles the pot, making it worth a possible $22,000. If they miss 3 or more,or time runs out or answer all ten the round ends.
