Storyline

The Wall is 4 stories high and "can change lives". The game is played by two people together. The first portion of the game is Freefall. Contestants must answer questions before balls complete their free fall down the Wall - correct responses earn prize money (green ball), incorrect answers result in prize money being removed (red ball). This portion of the game results in a total dollar amount, that amount must be positive in order to move forward. The second portion of the game involves one of the two contestants going into isolation. Round two starts with two green balls, and two red balls. The player in isolation answers questions "under stressful situations" to determine the color assigned to the remaining balls. Up to six balls can be earned by answering 3 questions. The dollar amount earned in round one is added to whatever is earned in round 2. Players cannot leave this round with less than $0 even if the red balls result in amounts larger than the green balls plus the ...

Good idea, but I smell a rat...
1 January 2018 | by rcoulter-31439See all my reviews

At the time I wrote this, there were 6 other reviews and I read them all. My favorite was by "atlasmb". I must admit, the concept for this game is intriguing -- you get money in your "game bank", you answer crappy trivia questions to hope to get more in your bank, but if you miss the answer, you have an equal chance of losing money in your bank. Then at the end of the round you have to perform an act where you can only lose money. Each time the odds of gaining or losing money are 50/50. So it's basically a demented PLINKO ripoff. The Price is Right might have a lawsuit (snicker).

Now here's the part that bugs me -- there are several phases of the game where drama is intentionally built. I'm not talking extemporaneous drama (like people just saying what's on their minds), NO, I mean scripted drama, like on your basic crappy reality show. It's all too-well rehearsed, and no amount of editing can hide that. I gave this show a 5/10 because I don't even know if this show is "real". And we'll never know...everyone involved has (no doubt) signed legal documents that if they come forward they get their pants sued off.

So welcome to the new world of reality game shows, where actors replace contestants, and life just gets more disappointing. Nice try producers, just make more Hell's Kitchens...at least Gordon makes me laugh.
