    Quoting the blog
    "By putting your general knowledge to the test, and taking a couple of chances the studio contestants can win big cash prizes." End quote.

    By putting YOUR knowledge to the test they can win? That's MY knowledge then?
    So it's interactive with us people at home, who are going to be an "ask the audience" and "phone a friend" combined. Actually.

    Do we win any cash for helping, if not, I'm going to press the wrong answer if I can actually find out where I can actually answer.
