Trivia

This series features some changes to the format seen in the regular series Tipping Point (2012):
  • There are only three competing celebrities.
  • Each celebrity plays on behalf of a charity of their choice.
  • Each counter that falls into the win zone, including Mystery counters, earns the celebrity that played a counter into the machine £100, and if a celebrity can get the Jackpot counter out of the machine, their total is augmented to £20,000. Both of these amounts are double what is offered on the regular series.
  • There are no Double counters present in the machine.
  • Depending on the season, a Mystery counter that falls into the win zone will award the celebrity who played a counter into the machine a small joke prize, an amount of cash that is not added to their total score, or a question about him/herself for which a correct answer allows them to play another counter into the machine.
  • The lowest scoring celebrity is only eliminated at the end of rounds 2 and 3, and the eliminated celebrities get to take home the money they have won to that point for their charity. Should a celebrity be eliminated with no money in their bank, an undisclosed donation will be made to their charity.
  • If a celebrity takes a trade but the three extra counters are not enough to get the Jackpot counter out of the machine, they will still receive £1,000 for their charity.
  • Episodes are recorded in front of a studio audience.

What does every game show need? A celebrity series of course.

Because it's so much more fun to watch z list celebs play the game than members of the general public.

Unfortunately this is what the schedules are full of these days.
