MILLION DOLLAR MONEY DROP: FOX’s Million Dollar Floor!

FOX recently picked-up the Channel 4 game show called “The Million Pound Drop” changing the name to “Million Dollar Money Drop”.

Two full thirteen plus hour days worth of filming at Culver Studios last week where the show was shot. It was reported that about five shows per day were filmed.

HOLLYWOOD JUNKET’s report from audience member, Matt, stated that each game begins with a couple coming out onto the stage ready to play a pyramid full of money stacks which are in increments of $20,000. A total 50-100 stacks are what the pyramid consists of.

The host is Kevin Pollack (“A Few Good Men”) whom I can’t believe after the “Our Little Genius” train wreck he got back onto a game show set. Not that he had anything to do with the scandal, just that game show hosting isn’t his strongest point. Pollack tends to be directed into doing exactly what he is told to do by the show director, and not bringing much of his own personality onto the game show set. In regards to Pollacks’ hosting performance, Matt stated, “He was all right. I’ve seen better”.

Pollack presents contestants with two subjects in which they must answer three multiple choice questions. Contestants wager on how much to bet on their selected stacks of money without dropping money on the floor.

If contestants answer correct, they keep the money. If they answer wrong, the money drops. After seven questions, players take home whatever they have won up to that point. If contestants lose all of the $1 million before they answer all seven questions, the game is over and they leave with nothing.

According to Matt, most of the contestants left with no money. One of the highest winners on the show won $80,000.

Another source on the set stated that the producers didn’t know ahead of time which questions were correct and which ones were not while contestants were playing the game. They were just as surprised as the audience when certain money was dropped.

    A little off topic, but since its the same host (Kevin Pollack)…somehow a post on “Our Little Genius” from last year caught my eye. It was so awful to watch “Our Little Genius” live, even though it might have had good intentions. I was at 3 tapings of that show, and the kids always ended up crying and traumatized after losing. Relating to “Money Drop”, Keven Pollack, as talented as he may be, seems to be encouraged to drag out scenes in an attempt to create fake suspense, similar to what he did on “Our Little Genius.” It’s like torture.-John P.
