"It's like The Da Vinci Code," explains Entertainment Tonight's Mark Steines, who will be hosting, "in the sense that one clue may be two clues.... [But] no, I'm not going to grow my hair out like [Tom Hanks]."
Twice each week, three participants will be momentarily pulled away from their computers and flown to a special locale in America to battle for $100,000 (your choice of cash or handy gold bars). But don't worry, Steines says "there's no bug-eating involved, particularly by the host of the show. Nor will we have to comb our hair like Donald Trump. [The challenges] will all be based in your pop-culture knowledge." And the "Grand Gold Finale" will feature one lucky savant walking away with a million bucks. Emotional reunion show and Jeff Probst not included.
