1 vs 100 is an American game show that aired on NBC from 2006 to 2008 before being resurrected on Game Show Network (GSN) with a new season from 2010 to 2011. In the game, a single-player (the “1) competes in a trivia tournament against 100 other participants (known as “the Mob”). The 1 wins prize money based on how many Mob members he or she has eliminated from the game, but any erroneous response at any time in the game results in the loss of all winnings. Bob Saget hosted the original NBC version, while Carrie Ann Inaba hosted the GSN reincarnation. The goal of the 1 is to be the last player standing after eliminating all 100 members by answering a series of general-knowledge questions accurately.
