About Cash or Splash:
Cash or Splash is an exciting and fun quiz-game show where two teams of three contestants each compete to protect the 1.000.000 in cash initially given to them until the end of the game, passing through various stages of challenging multiple-choice questions. They will have to play a 7 question game, with the constant risk of being dropped into the water traps set under the stage in case they give an incorrect answer, losing the amount of money they carry with them.
It’s not that hard to make it to the final even without knowing the correct answer since contestants can split their cash into different possible answers, ensuring their survival but at the same time, risking their money. The only rule is always to leave one possible answer empty. Wrong answers cost you money and a great dip in the water but you do get to continue the game.
And the breathtaking finale where the Host, for the first time in television history, has a 50% chance of getting wet himself!
