1 vs. 100 Game Show

I received a call last week from a woman (Jen) that used to (or maybe she still does) work on Lingo. My sister & I went on Lingo and won the top prize of $10,000 last year. We went back for a rematch vs. online winners and lost! :-( That losing episode just aired at the end of May and I just watched it on Sunday. OK, enough recap!

Jen called and said that the makers of "Deal or No Deal" were making a new show called "1 vs. 100" and she wanted to know if I was available to try out! It's a trivia/pop culture, money banking show and she said the difficulty level is similar to "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?". So, I'm going today to try out for the show! Hopefully I'll pass the test! Update on how it went to follow tomorrow!

How difficult are the questions?

Not too difficult. There was more than one version of the test. On mine, there were a couple fairly easy math questions, but then there are also TV trivia questions (about Friends, Will & Grace, etc.) and some history questions. Most of the history/math questions could be answered with a high school education. As far as the pop culture questions, you either know it or you don't. I made an educated guess based on only watching a couple episodes of Will & Grace and think I guessed properly, but since I don't watch the show, it was more difficult.

The questions are multiple choice, so you have a limited selection to choose from at least!
