101 Ways to Leave a Gameshow (BBC, 2010)

101 Ways to Leave a Gameshow was a British game show on the BBC, airing from July 10 to August 28, 2010. Eight contestants competed for a 10,000 pound prize by picking the correct answer to general knowledge questions. Competitors that gave incorrect answers were eliminated in a variety of ways usually in a spectacular fashion. In the first four rounds of elimination, a buzzer could sound signalling an Emergency Exit round. Here, contestants were asked questions at random and the first wrong answer resulted in an elimination. For the final round, three contestants remain to answer one final question to win the jackpot.

The show caught on enough for several international versions (Argentinian, Chinese, German, Israeli, Italian, Mexican, Swedish, Turkish and American). Interestingly, Italians played for no prizes.
