ANNOUNCER: "Before we went on the air today, we gave away $10,000 in $100 bills. Let's see that money!" (Audience waves their bills in the air.) "Now we want it back!" AUDIENCE: "No!"  ANNOUNCER: "Well, what's it going to take?" AUDIENCE: "Temptation!" ANNOUNCER: "Yes, it's Temptation, the show where today someone can win cash and prizes worth over $38,000! And here's the star of Temptation, Jed Allan!"

An audience participation pilot, unrelated to the 1967 show of the same name or the 2007 revival of Sale of the Century.


Round 1Edit

A hundred people in the studio audience were given $100 bills. They were offered three "temptations" (opportunities to play for a prize) in exchange for their $100 bill. A question was asked, with three choices. The players would move to what they thought the answer was. If they were right, they received whatever prize was offered, and advanced to the next round. If they were wrong, they had to forfeit their money and return to the audience. Contestants also could elect to reject all three temptations and keep their $100; however, they had to return to the audience after Round 1.

Round 2Edit

The contestants who won prizes in Round 1 were now faced with three prizes. A question was asked of the audience, with each answer represented by one of the three prizes. The same rules from Round 1 applied, as contestants could move to the prize that they felt was the correct answer (in turn forfeiting their Round 1 prize), or elect to return to the audience and keep the Round 1 prize. The contestants who chose the correct answer stayed in the game and now kept their Round 2 prize.

Round 3 & 4Edit

Round 3 and 4 were the same as Round 1, except only one prize was at stake. Contestants could choose the answer they thought was right or elect to keep their prize and leave the game. Only one player could survive and that survivor won the game.

Final RoundEdit

The final survivor played the final round for the grand prize. This round was the same as Round 1, only the contestant could choose after seeing the answers if he/she wanted to play. Choosing the right answer won a pair of Cadillac Eldorados.
