Elimination Jeopardy

This game show would be a derivative of Jeopardy, in which players ask questions corresponding to answers given to them, in hopes of getting a large sum of money.

In Elimination Jeopardy, however, players lose money when they are inactive, rather than ask the wrong question. Each starts with $180, but every second, $1.00 would be removed from that amount (complete with a quiet whooshing sound). When a player reaches -$1.00, they are removed from the game. Hence, the only way to stay in the game is to ask the correct questions and get more money.

       If the TV show were to adopt this, they'd NEVER get rid of Ken Jennings.
