Win Ben Stein's Money (1997–2002)
- Summaries (2)
Jeopardy-like game show featuring Ben Stein as both a host and a contestant. The second and third rounds of the game are played by Ben Stein himself as he tries to defend "his" money against the lowly contestants.
The anti-game show game show, "Win Ben Stein's Money" consists of humorous category names and banter between the hosts (Ben Stein and co-host Jimmy Kimmel from 1997-2001, Nancy Pimental 2001-2002 & Sal Iacoco in 2002) and contestants. It's the only game show where the host plays for part of his own paycheck. In the first round, three contestants answer questions of varying dollar amounts, with the one with the lowest amount being eliminated. The two remaining players go up against Ben Stein himself, as they again answer questions in round two. After that round, the contestant with more money faces Ben in the "Best of Ten Test of Knowledge," where each person is asked the same ten questions. The contestant keeps his/her money won in the first two rounds no matter what, but if they get the same number of questions correct as Ben, he/she win an extra $1000 for a tie. If he/she get more questions than Ben, they win all $5000 of his own money.
