Picture ThisEdit

A board of six numbers would be displayed. Behind each number a picture relating to an overall theme of the board (ie. Famous Landmarks)

Who Lives HereEdit

A camera would be invited into a celebrity's home and shown footage of inside as well as things they like doing at the end of the footage they had to guess who it was. Then the home team would be asked if they had a better answer than the celebrities. Then the now revealed celebrity would be asked a bunch of questions but the contestants would only hear the answers. Then they had 30 seconds to give the correct answers to the questions on the board. Then the home team would be given a true or false question from the celebrity.

Who Is ThisEdit

A round consisting of celebrities who had been digitally altered being guessed by the home teams by hitting their buzzers.


A clip of a movie or TV show would be played to each team and then asked about certain elements of it. Each celebrity was not allowed to confer with their teammates when asked their question

Championship RoundEdit

The leading home team would be given a choice between two possible topics they will be quizzed on. Then play went to the other team who would be asked questions in the other category. Each team would be given 45 seconds to answer as many questions as possible

The winner in Championship Round would win a Subaru car

Home TeamsEdit

Each celebrity team in the studio had a team at home that could play the game live via satellite with a buzzer at each Home. During the show Larry would interact with the families showing abilities or quirky things about them. During the show a Subaru would arrive in their front yard with the winning team rushing out to it at the end of the episode.
