The Million Pound Drop
First shown on Monday the 24th of May in 2010 and hosted by Davina McCall 'The Million Pound Drop' is an extraordinary game show where contestants can win or lose life-changing amounts of money live on TV. There were 11 series made during it's 6 year run but Channel 4 decided to axe the show in 2016 because they wanted to save money.
The show's creators 'Endemol' looked for contestants by using social media websites like Facebook and Twitter, the idea was to create a buzz by trickle feeding the followers with small bits of information about upcoming auditions. The game was mostly played with couples taking part although there was a single player in the very first series, the game has been changed a lot over the short period it was aired with teams of 4 and even teams of teams taking part.
They made a big deal out of pointing out that the show was live and to prove it a lot of the questions were about current events, some of them from the same day or even happening at that moment.
How to Play The Million Pound Drop
You start the game with 1 million pounds in 25 thousand pound bundles that have to be gambled on a set of 7 questions. You are given a multiple choice question with 4 possible answers that are displayed on trap doors in front of you. You have a limited amount of time to place all of the money you have on one or more of the answers. The only rule is that you must leave one trap door empty each time making it possible to lose all your money on any given question. To stay in the game players tend to hedge their bets by putting most of the cash on the answer (trap door) they are confident about and placing smaller amounts on the other trap doors just in case they're wrong. Once all the bets have been placed the trap doors with the wrong answers are either opened all at the same time or one at a time for more suspense, any cash that falls down a trap door is collected by security guards waiting below. It's quite dramatic.
Although no one has ever walked away with the whole 1 million pounds there have been plenty of really big winners with two teams winning 300,000 and lots of 200,000 pound winners.
With such high stakes you would think that they would take extra care with their questions and answers. During an episode in September 2010 two contestants, Johnny and Dee, were asked which actor had played Dr Who the longest. They didn't know the answer so they hedged their bets on McCoy and McGann, the answer was Tennant and they lost all their money. After the show fans started to complain that the answer was in fact McCoy and when the show's makers checked with the BBC it turned out that the fans were right. Johnny and Dee were invited back to the show to start where they left off, which was with 325,000 pounds, they ended up winning the show with...
