Initial for ITV1, 17 April to 5 June 2010 (8 episodes in 1 series)


Four contestants are read a series of clues leading them to an answer. However knowing the answer isn't good enough, as once they think they know, they must work their way through 19 yards of obstacles to press their button before they can answer. The first contestant to do so progresses to the next round, while the others have to try again, with the last person to complete the obstacle course, and provide a correctly answer being eliminated. Two more contestants are eliminated in subsequent rounds, before the last remaining contestant competes in the end game, with the chance of pocketing up to £100,000.
