"1 vs 100" Contestant Battles Wits with "The Apprentice" Alumni and Original "Grease" Feature Film Cast for a Chance at $2 Million

"Identity" -- the Ultimate Game of Who's Who -- Returns with the Most Perception-savvy Contestant to Date

BURBANK - March 12, 2007 � It's Friday night "game night" when NBC airs the season finale of its hit game show "1 vs 100" and returns its newest game show sensation "Identity" to the schedule with back-to-back episodes on Friday, March 16.

"1 vs 100" signs off the season at 8-9 p.m. (ET) with a contestant facing a special mob that includes NBC's "The Apprentice" alumni and original cast members from the 1978 hit feature film "Grease." Following from 9-10 p.m. (ET) is the next installment of "Identity," where one contestant faces 12 strangers and a list of 12 traits to identify them for a chance to win $500,000, before moving to its regular time slot (Fridays, 8-9 p.m. ET) the following week on March 23.

During the "1 vs 100" finale, Shannon a morning show radio host of Louisville, Kentucky will play for a top prize of $2 million, by trying to outsmart the mob, which includes original "Grease" cast members Jeff Conaway (Kenickie) and Susan Buckner (Patty Simcox), members of the rock 'n' roll band Sha Na Na (Reggie, Donny York, Jocko and Screamin' Scott), as well as "The Apprentice" alumni - - Omarosa, Kelly Perdew and Sean Yazbeck. The series is hosted by Bob Saget ("America's Funniest Home Videos").

The fun-filled night of play continues when NBC brings back "Identity," the ultimate game of who's who where keen perception and instincts can lead to a top prize of $500,000. In the premiere episode, the game's most intuitive contestant yet, Christina, who leads a non-profit Shakespeare program in the LA school district and is from Sacramento, California, faces 12 strangers and a list of 12 traits to identify them. She will pick from traits -- ranging anywhere from a National Scrabble Champion to a Prison Correction Officer -- and try to match them with one of the 12 strangers. The amount of money that she accumulates will increase with each correctly identified stranger. If all 12 are matched up correctly, this perceptive contestant may be rewarded with the grand prize of $500,000.

The series is hosted by Emmy Award-winning comedian/magician Penn Jillette ("Penn & Teller").

"1 vs 100" is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. Scott St. John ("Deal or No Deal") is the executive producer.
