Marc Summers would ask a question that was subjective and would result in one of two answers, if the contestant answered in the majority they would move on in the game, if they were not in the majority, they were out for the game. When a question was asked, Marc would walk up into the contestant seating area and ask people why they answered a certain way, this would add a personal spotlight on chosen contestants. This format would be continued until only 5 contestants were left in the "majority". These 5 finalists would be brought down on stage behind their own individual podiums. Marc would ask a question that would result in one of two answers, when one of the five finalists would buzz in and answer the same as the majority of the people polled, they would move on to the final two. In the round of the final two contestants, Marc would pose a question and each of the final two would give an "in depth" answer on why they felt a particular way, the remaining 48 contestants would vote on which answer they preferred, and the contestant with the majority of the votes moved on to the bonus round. I don't remember what the bonus round consisted of, and the bonus format was changed around, as well as the general format may not have been exactly like I described in every show. From what I understand, the show never made it further than limited screening areas such as Phoenix Arizona. I was a contestant on 7 episodes and made it to the final five once.
