Ellen plays a lot of games but few are more fun for us than the ones that terrify the contestants. On of her most popular games is “Know Or Go” a game that literally drops contestants who get questions wrong. What makes it great is not the questions or funny contestants, it the terror of wondering when Ellen will drop a contestant, a tension she plays to a fever pitch.
The game comes with a lot of fanfare: drums, a giant elevated stage, a console of buttons! It’s all really climatic.
Every one of these women will be dropped, this is known. But, for some reason, they all try to find a way out of falling. That is where Ellen’s fun side comes out.
She gives them a little hope
But the best are her fake outs
