Bullseye is an American game show on Fox hosted by action star Kellan Lutz[1] and comedian Godfrey. The show features contestants who compete in extreme challenges in order to hit or come the closest to the bullseye. The first episode premiered on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, at 9:00 pm EDT.[2] The first season concluded on July 15, 2015.

On August 21, 2016, Bullseye was cancelled by FOX after one season.[3]

Gameplay[edit]

In each episode, four women and four men compete in three "epic challenges" to hit, collect, or destroy bullseyes for a chance to win $50,000.

For the first challenge, placement is based on the contestants' distance from a bullseye, and the competition is separated by gender, with two men and two women being eliminated. The second is a challenge to claim as many targets as possible, and only the contestant in last place is eliminated. The final three competitors then race each other in a large course, and the person with the fastest time (or slowest depending on the challenge) after any applicable penalties (for example, for missing a target) wins that episode's money.

Their measurements from the center of the bullseye will be measured from where their back-side landed on the bullseye. Some competitors landed on the white of the bullseye, some landed on the black and blue (9ft-5ft).
  • Second Challenge: Competitors go head-to-head when they are harnessed onto a rope that pulls them up into the sky with loads of mini bullseye targets.

  • Final Challenge: "Runaway Train": The competitors start at the back of a speeding train. When the horn goes off, they must race across the top of the train cars, and gather the bullseyes on the sides of the train. While the train rushes down the track. Finally, when they get to the end of the train, they have to jump in front of the moving train, trying to grab and pull the bonus bullseye, which divides their time by 7/6, or 1 1/6 to subtract seconds off their time. If they get the bullseye or not, they will hit the bullseye behind them, and that will stop the train, and the clock.

Winner: Skyler, with a time of 58 with bonus Bullseye.

Each target they hit will added another five seconds, but the clock won't stop until they smash through the final bullseye. The competitor with the slowest time will zip their way to $50,000.
