Summary: Welcome to the 1 vs. 100 guide at TV.com!1 vs. 100, hosted by Bob Saget (Full House, The Aristocrats), finds ordinary people competing against a Mob of 100. Some of the 100 are ordinary folks, just like them, but the Mob also contains some of the best and the brightest. At any given time, the Mob may consist of brain surgeons, Ivy League scholars, past game show champions and other extremely smart individuals. Big-name celebrities are also often seen within the Mob, including such talent as poker superstar Annie Duke, Ken Jennings, Todd Bridges, comedian and The lone contestant faces a series of multiple-choice questions, increasing in value after the first few. The prize money won is based directly on members of the Mob that are eliminated from the game as they answer questions incorrectly. After all Mob members are given a few seconds to lock in their answer, the contestant is then given the opportunity to consider the question and then answer. If at any time the lone contestant answers incorrectly, he or she is out of the game and the members of the Mob split the prize money that had been earned up to that point.In order to have a shot at winning the most money, the lone contestant is given three "helps." The contestant can "Trust the Mob," which locks them into the most popular answer chosen by the Mob. A contestant may also choose to "Poll the Mob," in which case the contestant selects one of the answer choices and then finds out how many members of the Mob locked in with that answer. Finally, the contestant is allowed to "Ask the Mob." Two members of the Mob are randomly selected and each speaks about why they chose the answer that they did. The selected members must be honest about the answer they chose, but are allowed to lie about why they chose it.1 vs. 100 originates from Holland and the concept has proven successful throughout Europe. The United States version is brought to you by many of the same team involved with the production of the popular Deal or No Deal.
