Trivia

The drop distance on Sudden Drop, the game before the Know or Go prize round, is actually quite short. Contestants are on a 30 foot high platform, where they are dropped through a trap door if they answer a question incorrectly. You can see Contestants through a glass panel as they start to drop, but they are then hidden behind a colored tube for the rest of their decent. The truth is that they land into a foam pit shortly below the view of the glass panel and a shadow is projected on the colored tube to make it appear as though it is a much longer drop than it actually is, about 10 feet. You'll notice they say the contestants fall from a 30 foot platform, which is true but are then careful to not say they fall 30 feet. See more »

Downhill after the premier
9 January 2018 | by jordan2240See all my reviews

Watched the premier of this and thought it was amusing. When the real season started, we tuned in again, but this time couldn't get through 10 minutes. Why - because the contestants were so obviously overplaying their enthusiasm and excitement that it was too annoying to sit through. Granted, we aren't really game show watchers, but have tuned into Jane Lynch's game show from time to time and enjoyed it, so thought this would be similarly enjoyed. We were wrong. Ellen lost us at the first bout of incessant squealing from the contestants.
