Gary Lineker invites contestants to a game of knowledge and strategy in order to win up to £100,000.
Contestants choose where to sit on a row of chairs with the person at the front of the queue facing questions. Getting a question wrong means moving to the red chair at the back of the queue and everyone moving up a place. Periodically the person in the red chair is eliminated. In the final round, the final three vie for the front seat where every question is worth £10,000, but only the person sitting in it after ten questions gets to keep the cash. Edit: Apparently this final round might have changed.
Footballing legend Gary Lineker is untried as role of gameshow host, but he has twenty years of TV experience so hopefully he’ll be as good as Ian Wright. I’m sure the game will be fine (even if it all boils down to “don’t get the last question wrong”). Let’s be clear here: whether it’s going to be successful or not is going to be largely down to whether the chairs move or not, or whether everyone’s going to have to get up and swap seats between wrong answers, and the signs are pointing to “no” here which seems like a missed opportunity.
