Dog Eat Dog was based on the British format of the same name where six contestants competed against each other by playing on each other's weaknesses, to bid on becoming the "Top Dog" for the chance at $50,000.


During the course of the show, the contestants vote for one of their peers to undertake a series of challenges (of which are five in all). The person who is given the most votes is forced to undertake the challenge. The successful completion of the challenge by that contestant allows that player to choose one of the other players who nominated for them to face the "losers bench", However, failure condemns themselves to the "losers bench".

The Challenges[]

The first four challenges are as follows:

  • Maths Challenge
  • Word Challenge
  • "The Rock" (Climbing Challenge)
  • Logic Challenge

By the fifth challenge, their are only two players left as they "Face-Off" in "The Grid", where they must determine the pathway which will lead them to the title of "Top Dog".

General Knowledge Round[]

The sucessor then faces one last barrier to receiving the $50,000 grand prize, as they nominate one of the "losers" to answer a question based on a random category from the board who may believe has the last chance of answering the question correctly (but they can only choose that person once in the round). A correct answer gives a point to the losers team, while an incorrect answer gives a point to the "Top Dog". The first Person or team to get three points takes home the cash. (NOTE: if the "Top Dog" gets his or her three points first, then they'll take home $50,000 among his or herself. But if they "losers" get the three points first, then they'll split the $50,000 amongst themselves.)
