Everybody's Equal is a game show that originally aired on ITV from 7 June 1989 to 22 July 1991 and hosted by Chris Tarrant. It was later revived under the name Whittle and aired on Channel 5 from 31 March to 30 December 1997 with Tim Vine as host. Versions also existed in many European countries, plus Canada. Elements of the show resemble Tarrant's future hit Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, particularly its "Fastest Finger First" game.

Format[edit]

200 contestants were asked a question with four options and those who got it right were asked another. This continued until less than ten players survived, at which point they face four questions which are worth £50 each. If more than ten players remained after the sixth question, the ten fastest players went through. The player who correctly answers the final question the fastest goes on to play the final round. The winning contestant must place four things into the correct order, to win £1,000. If they get it wrong, the money is divided equally between all the other contestants.
