The Greatest Man on Earth was an elimination contest in which men performed various stunts and the loser was booted off the stage after each round. The last man standing (in the field of five) was titled as "The Greatest Man on Earth".


Five men were chosen from the studio audience to compete for the title "The Greatest Man on Earth" by performing stunts and answering questions. Finalists and their wives were eligible for prizes such as a new car, a trip to Europe, and more.
