Ultra Quiz | 1981
Nine hundred thirty-two contestants compete in the most elaborate and expensive game show to be produced for American television. The game begins in Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, where several games are played to eliminate the majority of players and establish 84 winners. These players then compete in a series of contests conducted in various cities around the world.
The winners in each city continue onto their next destination; the losers, who receive no prizes, are literally left on their own to get back home. The game continues until two contestants, the Ultra Finalists, are chosen. These players return to the U.S. and compete on live television in a finale competition for the grand prize--$100,000.
