Contests

All-American Ultra Quiz - This two-week game show special (aired 11/10/81) was emceed by TV comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin. The program started with 932 contestants at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. After a series of elimination competitions, the remaining 84 contestants were then shipped off to various cities around the globe (Washington, D.C., London, Rome, Paris and Athens) for additional competitions.

The winners moved on to the next challenge and the losers paid their way home. When the two finalist returned to the NBC studios, they competed for a $100,000 grand prize. Craig Power was the winner.

The CBS network revived this competitive spirit by creating a show in 2000 called SURVIVORS. The show's premise? Put a bunch of people on a remote desert island, offer the winner a cash prize of million dollars and sit back and watch to see who got voted off the island each week until there was one survivor. This series spawned SURVIVORS II set in the Australian Outback and subsequent sequels and imitators.
