1 vs. 100 was a BBC National Lottery game show broadcast on BBC One from 30 September 2006 to 23 May 2009. The programme was originally hosted by Dermot O'Leary between 2006 to 2007. Ben Shephard took over to host the show between 2008 to 2009.

Format[edit]

One player is selected to play the game as The One from 101 people, collectively known as The Mob. To win the game outright, the One must eliminate all 100 remaining members of the Mob by answering questions correctly.

After having the opportunity to select a category, a multiple-choice question with three options is revealed. The Mob is given 6 seconds to lock in their answer before The One is given the opportunity to answer the question. If the One is correct, all Mob members that answered the question incorrectly are eliminated from further play, bringing the lone contestant closer to winning the game. The amount of money in the contestant's bank also increases by £1,000 multiplied by the number of mob members eliminated in that question. If the contestant eliminates all 100 mob members, he or she claims all the money in the bank (the maximum amount of money a contestant can win is £200,000 if all 100 people are eliminated on a question and the doubler is used). However, if the One incorrectly answers a question, the game ends and he or she leaves with nothing.

The One has three dodges, where he or she is exempt from having to answer the question, but must forfeit half of the bank. In addition, after the first question, the One can also use one doubler to earn £2,000 multiplied by the number of mob members eliminated if the One answers the question correctly.
