The Biggest Threat!!!
29 November 2004 | by Joy_Ride_74See all my reviews

The name of this game should be called 'The Biggest Threat' because that's who they seem to vote off once it comes down to the final 3-4 people. I can't tell you how many times I've yelled out in rage because the dummies gang up on the smart person to vote them off. Part of the fun is the voting, but it's really not fair to someone who is considered the STRONGEST LINK to be kicked off. I think they should have set it up where they follow the statistics rather then have the contestants be dishonest and greedy. Also, it's nerve wrecking when the idiots reach $25,000 to $50,000 and don't say the word BANK!!! They also had way too many celebrities playing for charity. I saw more celebrities than I did regular, everyday people. Ann Robinson was a tremendous hostess, and I often wondered if some of her brash comments (said in a joking fashion) were really sincere.
