Eliminator was a children's game show in which a group of three children have to answer questions in order to get to the next level of the game, while being chased by a demon named the "Eliminator" who would try to reach them. The show produced two series between 6 January 2003 and 29 April 2004, and was presented by Michael Underwood. Since 2006, the show has been often repeated on the CITV channel.
The aim of the game would be to try to get to the next level, by jumping squares, similar to a board game. They could choose to answer an easy question to move one square, a medium question to move two squares, or a hard question to move three squares.
If a contestant was on level one, Eliminator would move one square behind them. In the same way, if the contestant was on level two, Eliminator would move two squares behind them, and would move three squares behind them if they were on level three.
Near the end of the game, contestants would mainly have to answer the hardest questions,[original research?] which, when correctly answered, resulted in larger amounts of movement. This kept Eliminator from catching up to them and taking their prizes.
The group would win a big prize together at the end. In the first series, if the team makes it to the prize tunnel, The Eliminator would get very angry because he was so desperate to eliminate the team from winning the star prize.
