There is yet another new game show on the loose...
Dirty Rotten Cheater is a new game show on PAX (ok, start ripping on my for watching PAX, but where else am I going to be able to see Supermarket Sweep???)
It is kind of an interesting format. Kind of a cross between Family Feud and Weakest Link. They start with 6 contestants, and one of them is assigned as the cheater. They are then asked question that they surveyed people, and the top 10 responses are taken. The cheater gets to see all of these responses. They then each take turns trying to guess the 10 responses. You get more money for the less common response, and less money for the most common response. After each round, they all vote who they think is the cheater. If three or more people choose the same person, that person is eliminated, whether they are the cheater or not. If they eliminate an innocent person, they lose half their money. Once the cheater is eliminated, another person is assigned the cheater.
It was a little confusing at first, as to what was going to happen next. It was an interesting watch.... I'll give it a few more weeks. It's on Mondays at 8 PM, so if you are tired off watching people eat horse rectum and reindeer testicles on Fear Factor, give Dirty Rotten Cheater a try.
