The iconic game show that became a pop culture phenomenon is returning to prime time on ABC, this summer on Sunday nights! Hosted and Executive Produced by Michael Strahan, the dynamic TV personality who's a regular contributor on ABC's GMA and co-host of the his syndicated morning show Live! With Kelly & Michael.
The $100,000 Pyramid is a word communication game where contestants work together with a celebrity partner to guess correct answers based on clues given by their teammate. Each episode consists of two Main Game rounds and two Winner's Circle rounds. In the Main Game, teams alternate picking from 6 subjects, then try to answer 7 words or phrases related to that subject. In the second Main Game there will be one Mystery 7 subject - the contestant who chooses that subject will have the chance to win a prize if they get all 7 answers correct in 30 seconds. The team that scores the most points in the Main Game advances to the Winner's Circle.
In the Winner's Circle, one team member attempts to communicate six subjects to their partner within 60 seconds. Each correct answer earns money for the contestant. The first time a contestant goes to the Winner's Circle, they're playing for a grand prize of $50,000. If the same contestant makes it to the Winner's Circle a second time, they'll play for an additional $100,000!
