ABC finally gives U.S. viewers a taste of 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show, the competition series that originated in the United Kingdom that gives contestants a chance to win $50,000 for answering a bunch of multiple-choice questions. Though this sounds like your average quiz program, it stands out by highlighting the best and most interesting part: the elimination. Because unlike your typical reality show, there are no farewell limo rides, no cheesy rose ceremonies, and no dramatic tribal council.
So what can we look forward to then? Only pure embarrassment (and fear) for the losers of the competition. According to David Goldberg, Chairman of Endemol North America, 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show will be "incorporating action packed stunts that will eject contestants so outlandishly within the show. [It] is sure to keep contestants and viewers on the edge of their seats, having no idea what to expect next."
Think contestants being flown away strapped to the wing of a plane or being shot out of a cannon. You can check out the British version here

101 Ways to Leave a Game Show, which is slated to run for six episodes beginning June 21, is hosted by Jeff Sutphen.
