What are the rules of the Wall Game Show?
The rules are simple: get a question correct and a green ball will fall down the Wall and add the value of the slot to the players‘ winning total. Miss a question and an ominous red ball will fall and deduct the value from the teams’ total. Teammates have to work together to build a huge cash prize.
Do contestants on the wall get paid?
The Wall, like most game shows, uses money as a prize. Contestants talk, in detail, about what they will do with the money they might win: pay off student loans, buy dream homes, start families. Hardwick talks about his own desire for them to walk away with “money for your family, for your future.”
Is the wall game show real?
While some like the way how LeBron James’ first game show goes, the technical problem is actually how scripted and intentional the game show really is because it doesn’t look reality to me. Yes, some people claimed the show is a rip-off to Plinko used in The Price is Right and to Japanese Pachinko.
How does the wall pay out?
The contestants have to answer questions in a correct manner before the balls fall into a box at the bottom. If the balls fall and they haven’t answered then they’re invalid scores. If they do answer and it’s right then the score will count, and that will go towards their guaranteed winnings.
Are game shows rigged?
No. Game shows are not rigged. Thanks to the Quiz Show Scandal of the late 1950s, it is now a federal crime to rig, fix, or otherwise predetermine the outcome of a game show. Producers or anyone else involved in doing such face years in federal prison should they do so.

Where do game shows get their money?
Game shows get money from advertising just like every other show on network TV. They however have absolutely tiny production costs compared to normal TV show which gives them a lot of money to buy prizes or give away as prizes.
Do Survivor winners get a lump sum?
Bummer. But in a cool twist, the winner of Survivor: Winners at War will get a $2 million prize—but don’t forget about those taxes. When a North Carolina man won a $2 million Powerball payday, he ended up with about $1,415,001, so we can expect our season 40 winner to take home a similar amount.
Can you take cash instead of prize on Price is Right?
So why don’t The Price Is Right contestants just take the cash value instead of the prizes? Simple: the game doesn’t offer cash value. “There is no cash value option,” explains Aurora’s Blog. “They make it super clear in all of the paperwork – you take exactly what you won, or you take nothing.”
