The contestants all live in the States, but come from Spanish communities.
Thanks to Mike Klauss for these grabs.

There’s a quiz at this point. The audience are split into two halves, and each half faces against itself to find a winner. This is done using a keypad busting quiz.
The two half winners are bought down for the face off – another quiz. The winner of which is offered a prize by La Tenacion (The Temptation) to give up their position as tonight’s suitcase player and hand it the right to play for the big money over to the losing finalist.

Here are the previous offers also.
And here’s the money shot.
