(Quiz, daily, 45/60 min. eps.) A life-size board game where the people are the tokens, and to move forward, the two contestants, one being the winner from the previous round, have to answer questions. They can choose to answer a difficult question, which would allow them to earn more points and move more spaces, but answering incorrectly means the other competitor takes over and carries on until they make an error. As with any board game, you never know who will come out on top to take home a cash prize and return for the next round. Occupying a 5 p.m. slot and with 450 episodes under its belt, Quiz Hunt has achieved average ratings of 7.9 percent this current year on Austria’s ServusTV. The show has been so successful that its ratings have quadrupled since its launch. Quiz Hunt’s biggest winner to date? A student who pocketed €375,000 after appearing in 47 shows where he faced 77 opponents and answered 1,649 questions correctly.

Pitch Perfect: “The simplicity of this game show, along with the thrill of the chase, is what makes Quiz Hunt so addictive. The game concept is familiar to people everywhere, and visually it looks very appealing with its colorful spiral course that leads the contestants into different fields, all of it complemented by on-screen graphics.” —Ralf Rückauer, VP Unscripted
