About the contestants winnings[edit]

Does anyone think that the number of questions and the potential amounts they could win should be added. Honestly, it should as it shows more detail of how far the contestants took to win. Show us you opinions, there might be an agreement...

To be honest, I don't think so. It's not really notable what someone could have won if they had not got it wrong. It should only be the amounts the contestant wins if they take the money (or win the million) or the amount the mob wins and per head what they receive. --Lakeyboy 05:23, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Would you call this trivia?[edit]

I have to question the current trivia in this article:

  • The first episode, the first four answers were all B.
  • In the first episode, questions that were displayed in the TV (not the studio screen), the answers were all in rows. After that, the answers were in columns.
  • From the first three episodes, when the money or the mob option was shown on TV, the text was bolded. After that, the text wasn't bolded.
  • After the first episode, a box at the bottom of the screen with the name of a "help" appeared when that help was being used, but not in the first episode.
  • In the first episode, a single note was used for the sound that indicated that an answer had been locked in. After that, a long note was sounded after it, to fit in with a melody that was sounded after the note indicating that the answer had been revealed.

Any of it is hardly trivia. It should be for strange mob results, record winning / loss amounts and controversey if any comes to light. Not for things like "4 answers in a row were B. Fair enough if all answers for the night were B and then something would be out of the ordinary but not 4. And it's virtually irrevelvant to Wikipedia that text that used to bolded was unbolded. What do others think. I removed the trivia section once before but it got added it back so I want some feedback before I remove this pointless trivia again. --Lakeyboy 04:43, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

If you must insist, normally, TV shows should have an appropiate format that should be kept for ages. However, 1 vs 100 seems to change it so often that their format is not set. Therefore, these points should be mentioned for viewers. Also, if a viewer watches the first episode, skips a few and watches another episode of it few weeks later, they would question why the change of format in some cases. For example, in the American version of 1 vs 100, till episode 6 (I think), there was a change of format in the game where the contestant was able to use Trust the Mob. Therefore this trivia is relevant as it shows the changes of the show overall. I hope you understand my point Lakeyboy. If there's any questions, let me know.

Mob changes[edit]

Does the mob change if a conestant's turn is not up at the end of the episode? And if not, does it change for the next contestant? 203.167.171.189 09:52, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Members of the mob only leave if they get a question wrong. For example, a contestant eliminates 88 members of the mob so they are up to 1 vs. 12 and takes the money, the 12 mob members stay to play on while the 88 who got eliminated and 88 new people become members of the mob. Hope this clears things up.

Trivia section[edit]

I'm moving the entire trivia section here in accordance to WP:TRIVIA for editing so it can be picked at and transferred to proper areas of the article. Someone removed my hidden message in the article code stating NO new information is to be added so now i'm moving it here. Please do not addit back to the article in the form of a trivia section. Thank you. --Lakeyboy 10:54, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Trivia[edit]

  • In the first episode, the first four answers were all B.
  • In the first episode, the answers to questions that were displayed in the TV (not the studio screen) were all in rows. After that, the answers were in columns.
  • From the first three episodes, when the money or the mob option was shown on TV, the text was bolded. After that, the text wasn't bolded.
  • After the first episode, a box at the bottom of the screen with the name of a "help" appeared when that help was being used, but not in the first episode.
  • In the first episode, a single note was used for the sound that indicated that an answer had been locked in. After that, a long note was sounded after it, to fit in with a melody that was sounded after the note indicating that the answer had been revealed.
  • In the 6th episode there was a mob member called Mark who appeared in Channel Seven's competing show, The Rich List.
  • In the episode aired on May 28th, 2007, the contestant "Jamie" was on both "1 vs 100" and Channel Seven's competing show The Rich List at the same time.
  • On April 2, 2007, Paul Randle became the first contestant to get a three second sneak peak at the next question as a reward for reaching 1 vs. 10. Unfortunately, he had an idea of what the answer was (without the options given) and missed out on having a sneak peek at the next question and an extra $7500. Dave Reynolds would have been the first to have a sneak peek at the next question had he answered his last question correctly.
  • From the fourth episode on, the help boxes were slightly higher on the television screen than before.
  • Simone Ferguson, one of the show's contestants, walked the dog belonging to one of the Catholic priests. He also happened to play in the same game as she did.
  • The highest amount of money given to any Pod Member is $130,000, won by Cathleen Kendall, but got eliminated in the next round.
  • The most members eliminated in a game is 99, by Peter Hickey. If he had correctly answered his last question, he would have been 1 vs. 1, with the chance to either take $146,000 or have a sneek peek at the next question.
  • For the first time in 1 vs 100, during the 1 vs 31 stage, Allister Decameran opted to "Trust the Mob", but, a new first came up: 12 people chose "Breaststroke" (B) and "Butterfly" (C) each, which left 7 people choosing for "backstroke" (A). He then used "Ask the Mob", one chose "Butterfly" and the other chose "Backstroke". This caused controversey since Allister Decameran would only have B and C to choose from since they were the two highest selected answers chosen by the mob when Trust the Mob was used. If "Ask the Mob" was used, unless A was the correct answer, only B and C should remain in order to eliminate minority.

Okay then, let's get down to business. From your earlier messages, weird results are to be added, that means the last point should be added since it's a first to ever happen. How's that for a start? Willbender 11:40, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

It's not really Wikipedia material things like "This is the first time it will happen" things because they were bound to happen at some stage in the show's run. These situations are explained very well in the gameplay section of the article anyway. As for records and etc, they are already listed in the "Contestants and their winnings" section.

Also, i'm taking this step now so the article doesn't end up looking like the trivia section on the Bert's Family Feud article. --Lakeyboy 11:55, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit]

I have changed the displayed logo to a modified version of the American logo, tinted gold by myself. Feel free to replace it with the correct Australian logo when one can be found or captured from the television. Marquisite 13:36, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
