Power of 10

Show Summary

The contestants must answer five questions with each correct answer increasing their money by multiples of 10 beginning with $1,000 and going all the way up to $10 million. This show has a unique format which is different from most other game shows. It starts out with an elimination round where two people face each other in a series of 5 questions. They must try and guess what America said and the contestant who comes closest wins that question. The first one to win three questions gets the opportunity to play for $10 million. Once the contestant is chosen a first question is asked, in which there is a 40% range (Ex. 20-60%). They must try to guess how America has answered and America's answer must fall within that range. If they get that correct they win $1,000 and can chose to answer a second question or walk away with the money. The second question is a little harder and has a 30% range. The question is worth $1,000 to the power of 10, making it $10,000. The third question only has a 20% range making it a little tougher than the last. That question is worth $100,000. The fourth question only has a 10% range and is worth $1 million. If the contestant gets this correct they can once more choose to walk away or can go for $10,000,000. If they choose to go for the $10 million they have to pick the exact percent of Americans in regards to the fourth question; meaning they have a 1 in 11 chance of winning the $10,000,000. Contestants must also remember that if they don't walk away and get an answer wrong they go one step down and automatically leave with that amount. An example of that would be a contestant getting the $100,000 question wrong meaning they only had $10,000 and one step down from there is $1000, so they would leave with $1,000 dollars.moreless
