Win Roy & H.G.'s Money was a short-lived satirical game show based on an American format called Win Ben Stein's Money as contestants competed to win $5,000 of the hosts' money.


In the first two rounds, the contestants faced a game board of five categories. The one in control picked a category, a dollar amount was revealed behind it (either $50, $100, or $150), then a question was read. The first player to buzz-in with a correct answer scored the hidden amount from right out of Roy & H.G.'s total. After each question, a new category replaced the one chosen (Round 1 also featured $50 bonus questions). At the end of each of these rounds, the player with the lowest score was eliminated from the game, and all the money he/she took was returned to Roy & H.G. and added back to their total.

Round 1 had three contestants, with the survivors advancing to Round 2, in which one of the hosts (via an onscreen cointoss before the break) stepped in as a contestant acting as a "Speed Bump" to the other players and made the first pick of the round. The contestant with the most money at the end of Round 2 faced that host for the rest of their money; eliminated contestants left with crappy consolation prizes.

Final Round[]

The last contestant competed head-to-head with the contesting host in a one-minute showdown (under which up to 10 questions were asked). If a player passed on a question, they could return to it with time leftover.

The top scorer at the end of the round was the winner. If the host won, the contestant took home just the money he/she won from the first two rounds, but if the contestant won, he/she won what was left (this only happened once in the show's entire run).


The studio where the show was taped was called the "Institute of Australian Intelligence (IAI)".

Eight episodes were produced, the last of which had the show's only $5,000 winner.
