The Line is a two-hour game show special where it offers people the chance to win cash and prizes by playing outrageous games all-the-while waiting in line for their shot at answering a series of trivia questions.

Premise[]

Contestants attempt to claim a growing jackpot by reaching the “Trivia Vault” at the front of the line and correctly answering eight true/false questions. Those waiting in line will also have their chance to win cash and prizes by playing “outrageous games.”

The Vault[]

While The Line is the centerpiece of the show, The Vault is where the contestants want to be. They face eight true/false questions. Each correct answer adds $250 to a progressive jackpot. A wrong answer sends them home with nothing, while the jackpot grows until won.

Games[]

During the course of the show, various games are played with people in the line for small prizes, as well as a chance to move to the front of The Line, a loss sends them to the back.

All Hooped Up: Two chosen groups of five had to pass a Hula Hoop from one person to another down the line while holding hands in one minute and thirty seconds (1:30).

Envelope of Destiny: Simply a choice whether or not to open an envelope and reveal its contents.

Up Against a Ball: Four members per team (while blindfolded) had to roll a giant ball on top of a container while listening to the directions by the guider. The winners got a $100 Amazon GC (the losers got a smaller GC).

The lowest jackpot awarded was the minimum of $2,000, the highest awarded was $18,000.
