Welcome to the 1 vs. 100 guide at TV.com!
1 vs. 100, hosted by Kirsten Dunst (Small Soldiers, The Trap), finds ordinary people competing against a Mob of 100. Some of the 100 are ordinary folks, just like them, but the Mob also contains some of the best and the brightest. At any given time, the Mob may consist of children and other extremely smart individuals. Big-name characters are also often seen within the Mob, including such talent as TV characters Jessie, Meoth, James, Wobbuffet, Mime Jr., Hunter J and Ash contestant faces a series of multiple-choice questions, increasing in value after the first few. The prize money won is based directly on members of the Mob that are eliminated from the game as they answer questions incorrectly. After all Mob members are given a few seconds to lock in their answer, the contestant is then given the opportunity to consider the question and then answer. If at any time the lone contestant answers incorrectly, he or she is out of the game and the members of the Mob split the prize money that had been earned up to that point.
In order to have a shot at winning the most money, the contestant is given two "helps." The contestant can "Trust the Mob," which locks them into the most popular answer chosen by the Mob. Finally, the contestant is allowed to "Ask the Mob." Two members of the Mob are randomly selected and each speaks about why they chose the answer that they did. The selected members must be honest about the answer they chose, but are allowed to lie about why they chose it.
1 vs. 100 was hosted by Howdy Wilcox in the old version from 2005 - 2006 on Nickelodeon. It has a cash prize of 1 000 000. moreless
