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.
