When the World Series concludes and the November Sweep approaches, FOX offers a brand-new game. The network will unveil THE RICH LIST, an exciting new quiz show where teams of strangers use knowledge and strategy to complete lists that can win them limitless amounts of money. Hosted by Eamonn Holmes, Britain’s well-known morning TV personality, THE RICH LIST premieres Wednesday, Nov. 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) following BONES.
In THE RICH LIST, total strangers are thrown together to form two teams of two who compete against each other by filling in missing answers on a particular list. Wide-ranging topics could be films directed by Steven Spielberg, hit singles by ABBA or states with a coastline. Contestants bid upwards against each other while predicting how many examples of a particular subject they will be able to list.
If a team fails to list as many answers as they predicted, the other team wins the round. The winners of the best of three lists move on to play “The Rich List,” a new game of list-making where increasing amounts of money are up for grabs; however, make a single mistake and they lose it all. But it doesn’t end there on THE RICH LIST – if you keep winning, you keep playing. The champions return to face a new set of opponents and try to win even more money in a potentially endless number of games.
