Estate Of Panic premiered on the Sci-Fi channel in the fall of 2008. In each episode, large quantities of cash are hidden throughout a massive estate and the Estate Host invites seven contestants to find the money. But all is not what it seems, and the contestants will be challenged throughout the mansion to overcome the terrors and traps that await them. After each of three challenges, two people are eliminated: the last person in the room is permanently trapped, and the person with the least money from the challenge is eliminated. All winnings are added into a single prize pot. The last person faces one last challenge and if he wins, he walks away with the entire prize pot.
