The Wall has been on now for quite a few episodes and I have to be honest, I didn’t catch it at first. But, I finally got around to checking it out and watched all the episodes available in one flail swoop. It’s because it was that captivating.
It’s designed to make winners out of every contestant. Trust me when I say, hitting a million is not that hard to do. I’ve seen it in just about every episode so far. That’s right! Just about everyone has hit a million at least one time in the show.
They have many chances and even if they don’t hit the million, there is a lot of big money up there. Everyone can get over a million even if they don’t even hit the million. This is a game designed to send people home with life changing money.
But, there are some downfalls and I’ve seen them. The Marine couple that was on had a good run. But, it fell apart at the end and I’ll explain how that can happen.
Let’s go through the gist of the show first. It starts with a free fall round where the balls drop and they have to answer the question right before they get to the bottom. They get the amount if they get the answer right. If they don’t get the answer right, the amount gets deducted from what they have. They can’t go below $0. If the amount they get from red balls is more than the amount they have, the show just sets the amount they have at $0 and hopefully, they have more chances left. They have to have at least $1 on the board to advance to the next round. Everyone has so far.
The next round is where the couple splits up and one goes to an isolation booth to answer questions. The other partner stays out on the stage and makes some pretty huge decisions. The partner on the stage has to choose what number to drop the ball from and whether or not to double up or triple up when they are given the chance.
The partner in the isolation booth has one job. They have to answer the questions. When the couple started out after round one, they had an amount of money. For each question the partner in the isolation booth gets, the show adds $20,000 to that amount.
This Is How Good It Gets
She had $109 on the board before this drop. She ended up hitting the $1 million and $400K. I told you it wasn’t that hard. It happens in just about every episode. It can happen several times. But, I haven’t seen that yet.
There is a bad part though. They get free green balls that earn them money. Then, they get questions where they can earn more green balls and earn more money. But then, they get as many red balls as the free green balls they started the round off with. It can’t be avoided. $1,349,000 can be wiped out in one drop. I’ve seen it happen. It happened to the Marine couple I mentioned earlier.
This Is The Bad Part Gone Good
She was a lucky “dropper.” But, she had been hitting low money all day when she had green balls. How she got over $300,000 at the end was beyond me. But, that same luck worked to her advantage at the end when the red balls were dropping.
It’s a common thing to watch people walk away with big money. I’ve seen over a million. I’ve seen just under a million. I’ve seen some heartbreaking moments too. Because the ending is the kicker.
They send a contract back to the partner in the isolation booth. If they sign it, they get the amount of money they started with plus the $20,000 for each correct answer. If they don’t sign it, they are relying on how much money the partner on stage made. Sometimes, that’s good. Sometimes, not so much.
And that’s the game. You’ll love it if you give it a chance. I know you’ll get addicted. The life stories themselves are enough to make you want to cheer for them to win. Its almost like Let’s Make A Deal. It’s just more interactive and fun to watch.
