"This is (couple #1); they've been married for (number of years), and these are their children, (insert names here)! (repeat two more times) Today, these three families will compete to win Mom and Dad a romantic… 2nd Honeymoon! And now, here's the host of 2nd Honeymoon, Wayne Cox!"

2nd Honeymoon (or Second Honeymoon) was a game show from Vancouver, Canada where families competed to win the parents a second honeymoon.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Modeled on The Newlywed Game, three couples and their children (comprising three teams of four to six contestants) answered questions to win (as the title says) a second honeymoon. The children (who were aged between eight and 30 years old) were asked a series of multiple-choice questions in the style of Newlywed to see how much they knew their parents.

The game was played in three rounds with a total of five questions.

Round 1[edit | edit source]

In Round 1, the kids were asked two questions to see how much they knew their mothers. Both questions had four possible answers. They predicted how their mothers would answer the same questions. A correct match on the first question was worth 20 points, while a correct match on the second question was worth 40 points.

Round 2[edit | edit source]

In Round 2, the kids were asked two more questions except they predicted how their fathers would answer the questions; both questions had four possible answers. A correct match on the first question was worth 60 points, while a correct match on the second question was worth 80 points.

Round 3[edit | edit source]

In the final round, the kids along with their mothers independently predicted how the fathers would answer one last question; the responses were written on large index cards. Each match was worth 100 points (for a possible total of 300 points & a possible overall grand total of 500 points).


The family with the most points at the end of the game won the grand prize: the second honeymoon. A tie between two or all three teams for first place at the end of the final round was broken by a tiebreaker question; the first team to secure a correct match won the game.
