Firefighter and Firefighter Trainee On Set For Life

August 03, 2007 12:01 AM by Joe Blackmon

Contestants Shane Callahan, a landscaper and firefighter trainee from
Louisville, Kentucky and Jason Gonzalves, a firefighter from Lincoln,
Rhode Island will attempt to win a monthly paycheck for one month,
three years, twenty – up to forty years, possibly enough to leave them
"Set for Life," FRIDAY, AUGUST 3 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC
Television Network.

In "Set for Life," contestants have the chance to win a monthly paycheck for one month, three years, twenty years – up to forty years. They will battle to receive a monthly paycheck for as long as possible – the maximum a contestant can win is up to four million dollars paid as a monthly stipend over 40 years! This show does not require skill. There are no questions to answer. It’s all about knowing when to stop and bringing along a trustworthy "guardian angel" who will ensure you go home a winner.

The game is simple — the contestant must randomly choose among 15 light sticks to progress up or down the Time Ladder. Choose a white light and you go up one step, increasing the time you’ll receive a monthly paycheck. But if a red light is chosen, you move down the Time Ladder, decreasing the amount of time you’ll receive a monthly paycheck. If contestants finds four red lights, their game on the floor is over.

Meanwhile, in a soundproof isolation booth, the contestant’s partner, or his/her "guardian angel," is in control of the contestant’s financial fate. Their job is to guarantee their loved one goes home with money. Simply by pushing a button at any time to stop the game, the guardian angel can guarantee the contestant goes home with a fortune — or it could cost them everything… You won’t find out what the guardian angel does until the very end of the game, so every game ends with an emotional surprise.

"Set for Life" is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. The series is executive-produced by Scott St. John and is broadcast with Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning.

    I don’t trust this show, and it has the potential to be rigged. It seems to me that the producers would be able to “flip a switch” to have the light turn on either “white” or “red”. This could be done remotely as the contestant is pulling the lightstick out. At least on Deal or No Deal all the briefcases are present at once and all the dollar amounts are revealed even when the game is over. Set for Life leaves too much room for someone to “control” which color light will come on. I would suggest they have the tips of the lightstick PAINTED either red or white -something not electrical which can be manipulated.
