About the series
Created by Mark Burnett and Mike Darnell, 500 Questions is an American game show in which people try to answer general knowledge trivia that is divided into ten rounds of fifty questions. Hosted by CNN journalist Richard Quest, 500 Questions originally premiered on ABC on May 20, 2015, and the second exciting season of the intricately structured contest debuted on May 26, 2016.
Each round of the game consists of ten categories with five questions. Contestants don’t have a chance to ask for anyone’s assistance, or use any saves- if they answer three questions incorrectly, they are eliminated. They are challenged by a contender, who, if they answer two questions wrong in the categories of their choice, chooses the category for them in order to try and knock the contestant out of the game. If the challenger succeeds, he takes the place of the contestant and begins his own game of 500 questions. If the contestant stands within that round, the challenger is eliminated. The amount of money won depends on the questions answered in all of the rounds. So far, the highest prize was $110 000 won by Adam Villani, who was eliminated on question 168.
Current season and renewal expectations
500 Questions is a fun and challenging game show that has received critical acclaim. Its last completed second season, which has bowed out on June 1, 2016, attracted an average of 4.243 million viewers per episode, losing 11% compared to freshman season. Although it only scores a 5.8 out of 10 on IMDb, the show does seem to have a great future and presents a different spin on a typical game show. With no multiple choice questions and no help from anywhere in sight, this certainly proves a difficult task and keeps the audience`s attention. Stay tuned for relevant announcements.
