1 vs. 100 was a game show based on the original Dutch format Een tegen 100 in which one contestant must eliminate a mob of 100 people in order to win $1,000,000.


The Contestant and the "mob" are given a multiple-choice question with three possible answers. The mob has to answer the question within six seconds, and then the contestant has to answer it. When the contestant is happy to answer the question, then he or she pushes the button that corresponds with the answer. if he or she answer the question correctly, then any player in the 100-person mob who answered incorrectly will be eliminated from the game. the contestant (also known as "The One") add a specific amount to their bankroll for every mob members eliminated on a particular question. if at anytime "the One" eliminates all 100 members of the mob they'll leave out of here with $1,000,000. However, if at anytime he or she gets one question wrong, then the money he or she has accumulated up to that point will be split amongst the remaining surviving mob members while he or she gets nothing.

The Money Tree[]

the amounts goes as follows:

  • $5,000
  • $4,500
  • $4,000
  • $3,500
  • $3,000
  • $2,500
  • $2,000
  • $1,500
  • $1,000
  • $1,000
  • $500
  • $500
  • $500


Contestants have the option of using "helps" on a single question. (NOTE: for the "Poll The Mob" option, unlike the american version, the contestant cannot ask any member from the mob when using the "help".)

  • Poll The Mob: The contestant can pick one of the three possible answers (two if "Ask The Mob" was used in the same questions). The number of mob players who chose that answer is revealed. However, the choice could be wasted if no one picked that answer as they could have picked the other answers.
  • Ask The Mob: One mob member who answered correctly and one who answered incorrectly are chosen at random. Each explains his or her decision to the contestant. Mob members must tell the truth as to which answer they choose, but they don't have to as to why they chose that particular answer.This automatically eliminates one wrong answer, thus leaving contestants with a 50-50 chance of picking the right answer. If all the mob members select the same answer, then one member is polled and the contestant is told of the possibilities: either he or she chooses the same answer or he/she chooses a different answer. Conversely, If all the mob members chooses from the two incorrect answers, only one mob member is interviewed. The contestant is then informed that answer is is incorrect, and that every mob member got it wrong; the contestant then gets to choose from the correct answer and the other incorrect answer.
  • Trust The Mob: The contestant must commit to choosing the answer by the largest number of mob members. If their's a two or three-way tie. the contestant would only know how many members of the mob chose A, B or C and doesn't have to choose from one of the high-polling options. This could also mean that this help is useless if exactly one third of the mob selected one of the answers or if exactly half the mob chose one answer amd the other half chose the other answer when the "Ask The Mob" help was already used.
