"Drop Me, Man! Just Drop Me, DROP ME!!" -- In a season of the most wild and crazy eliminations ever seen on a game show -- including players being strapped to the wing of a biplane, run over by a monster truck, or launched off a 350 foot cliff in the back of a pickup truck -- the Season Finale of "101 Ways to Leave a Game Show" will not disappoint. It's anybody's game to win with $50,000 on the line. Eight contestants put their knowledge to the ultimate test as they each try to avoid a wrong answer that may get them eliminated in the craziest ways imaginable. Players will be attached to an anchor and sunk in the ocean, launched out of a World War II cannon into the harbor, dropped high off a steaming ship into shark infested waters, and dumped into the ocean in a cart full of fish. The lucky four who survive each round will face a ten-story drop from The Tower for a chance to win the grand prize. The Season Finale of "101 Ways to Leave a Game Show" airs TUESDAY, JULY 26 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
