Here’s another game show pitch to steal or say it’s bad or whatever… It’s 2 AM and I’m tired… but I want to write this out, because I can.
Unpredictable is a game show in which three contestants predict the outcomes of various challenges, as well as their opponents in the hopes of winning cash and prizes.
Each game of InTuition has three contestants (a RED, GREEN, BLUE) player and four rounds of play.
Each round is broken up into two parts – a “Game” and a “Prize”.
PART 1 – GAME
In the “Game”, anything could happen… it’s unpredictable. But they are guaranteed to involve some sort of prediction involved involving numbers. (Think “It Takes Two”)
Ideas could include
- A YouTube video of a “World Record” and the contestants predict the number of things they’ve done.
- A viewer-submitted stunt of something played on the show. (how many inches up can the viewer reach with the measuring tape before it crashes?)
- An Audience Challenge.
- What will be this special guest score in this arcade basketball game?
- What is this audience member’s weight according to the drivers license?
- How many marshmallows can this person fit in his mouth?
- How fast will this guy throw this baseball?
- How much in dollars is this jar of change worth when we stick it inside a coinstar machine?
Anything is possible, which brings unpredictability to the show…
Which one of the three contestants predicts closest, wins the “game” a cash bonus
ROUND 1 : $1,000
ROUND 2 : $2,000
ROUND 3 : $3,000
ROUND 4 : $4,000
And picks a “color” from the video wall – RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, PURPLE, BLACK AND WHITE
Behind these “colors” will be a “category” for the second round.
PART 2 – PRIZE
The 8 Colors Correspond with various categories, but 5 of them remain the same each episode.
- CARS (Three Cars Are Available)
- CASH (Three Mystery Boxes Worth $5,000; $10,000 or $15,000)
The other three have a various “theme” associated with it – such as “Hawaii” or “Green”.
Once the category is selected, three prizes will be revealed for the contestants.
Example: Technology (Category)
PRIZE A – 32″ HDTV with BluRay Player
PRIZE B – Xbox One and 8 Video Games (Plus a Year of Xbox Live Gold)
PRIZE C – Pair of IPad Airs
The contestant can pick only one of the three prizes and can only “win” the prize if any of the other two contestants don’t pick the same prize. So in each “Bonus” – All three people could win different prizes, 1 person could win one prize, or nobody wins a prize.
Any prizes will be “added” to their bank, and after four rounds… we then reveal the retail value of the items (as well as the cash box, if applicable)
Whoever has the most money at the end of the game, goes onto play “Ultimate Unpredictability” for $100,000.
END GAME – ULTIMATE UNPREDICTABILITY
This game is more or less a “faster” version of the bonus game. There are 8 colors like always – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, White and Black.
But now there are three letters – A B and C.
Each Color Represents a Cash Value
And the three letters represent either
The “Lose” will change each episode (as an ongoing joke for the show) and the goal is simple – to keep building up cash. Picking up the “ALL” earns “ALL” of the amount ($20,000) “HALF” earns “HALF” of the amount shown ($10,000 out of $20,000) and “LOSE” means “LOSE EVERYTHING” and the game is over automatically.
If the contestant can pick up cash from all 8 colors – they win $100,000. The contestant can stop at any time and bank any money they’ve earned. But if they ever at any point select a “LOSE”, they lose all the money in the end game, and leave with whatever cash and prizes they have in the front game.
Three new contestants start the next episode, with another chance to win cars, cash and other amazing prizes.
