PilotEdit

According to Adam Nedeff's website, the Pilot took $500 to win the match, and after winning $250, the player/team then played "Shortcut to Victory", in which the player/team had to answer all three questions correctly to win another $250. If the player/team made a mistake, a second round of the regular game was played to determine the winner. On The Gold Run board, four gold bards on the right side concealed $1,000, $2,000, $5,000, and $10,000. Upon connecting gold to gold, the player/team was rewarded with the amount adjacent to their last correct answer. The set also looked a little different, and had different podiums and scoreboards, which were covered up on the actual show.
