You Deserve It
The first game show where a contestant is not playing for himself… but for someone deserving it. In this emotional game show, contestants have to recommend the beneficiary for whom they want to play. They can potentially win a fortune and make this the turning point in the life of one special person. The beneficiary does not have the faintest idea about what’s boiling – not about the preparations, not about the contestant playing for him in a TV show… not a clue!
Secrecy is part of the plan, until we surprise this person in an eye-watering finale and reveal the big check with a hopefully life-changing amount of money. To achieve this, the contestant has to go through 10 nerve-wrecking rounds, each offering 10 clues to solve a question. Clues do not come for free – sometimes they cost a nice measly sum, sometimes a disastrous amount of cash. Everything depends on the contestant’s knowledge and intuition.
