Power of 10

Power of 10

Drew Carey hosts Power of 10, a game show where contestants have the chance to win up to $10 million. To do so, contestants must guess results of a national survey and each correct answer puts them one step closer to the grand prize. The cash prizes rise by powers of 10, hence the name of the game show. If you guess the first question (corresponding to national surveys) within forty percent then you earn $1000. If you answer the next question right within a thirty percent range you earn $10,000. Then the next question within twenty percent earning you $100,000. If you are able to answer the next question within ten percent then you win 1 Million Dollars. After that is the final question worth 10 million dollars but you must guess the exact percent from the last question. With the help of audience polls and the consultation of a friend and even the host contestants vie for one of the highest cash prizes a game show has ever offered.

This game show is deceptively easy and very exciting. One of the best game shows since Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Drew Carey was a great choice for host of this show, he is a charismatic and talented host. To my knowledge it is the only game show to ever give contestants the possibility of winning 10 Million Dollars except of course the short lived special edition of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire called Who Wants to be a Super Millionaire. I predict that this show will last for a couple of years but I don't think it has the appeal to become one of the greatest of great game shows like Jeopardy, The Price is Right, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, and Wheel Of Fortune it strikes me as the type of game show that will begin to get old after a while. I think the concept of guessing results of national surveys with the help of the studio audience is interesting but doesn't have the staying power of the game shows I mentioned earlier. Also I doubt that The Power of 10 will ever give away 10 Million Dollars, because If a contestant guesses wrong (they need to guess exactly on the 10 million dollar question) then they leave with 100,000 dollars rather than leaving with 1 Million Dollars. There aren't that many people willing to risk 900,000 dollars in cash to guess to get to 10 Million. This game show strikes me as a mixture of Family Feud in the fact that surveys must be guessed at and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in the high amount of money and general setup of the stage and audience polls Overall I'd give this game show a 7.5 out of 10.
