1 vs. 100 - Helps - Netflix
Unlike the European (and Hong Kong) versions of the show, there are no “dodges” or “doublers” on the American version of the show. Instead, each player receives opportunities to receive assistance from the mob, known as “helps”. Originally there were two helps, which could only be used in order. Starting with the sixth episode, a third option was added, the three helps were given names, and players could choose any of the three at any point in the game. During “Poll The Mob” (originally the first help), the player selects one of the three answers to get more information about. The number of “mob” players who chose that answer is revealed, and the contestant chooses one of the revealed mob members to discuss his or her response. For “Ask The Mob” (originally the second help), two mob members are randomly selected: one who answered correctly and one who answered incorrectly. Each explains his or her decision to the contestant, which in turn also eliminates the third choice from consideration. If everyone in the mob either got the question right or wrong, the choice is not shown and the two mob members are not selected (it happened once on Brazil, when the one faced exactly two remaining contestants on the mob). For “Trust The Mob” (added in episode 6), the contestant is automatically committed to the most popular answer the mob gave. The American version has also incorporated the “Sneak Peek,” which allows a player to see their next question (but not the three answers) before deciding whether or not to answer the next question. In 2007, it was used when a player eliminated 90 or more members of the mob. After only two people managed to do so, it eventually became available once a player has used all their helps in season two.
