Get Rich Quick

Producer: Bob Stewart
Host: Steve Edwards
Announcer: Bob Clayton
Celebrities: Debralee Scott, John Ritter, Robert Urich, Lynnie Greene
Taping Info: 1977, Studio 15 ABC, New York City
Made it to Air: No
Availability: It has aired on GSN and is on the trading circuit.

Bob ... Stewart ... tries ... yet ... again ... to ... sell ... a ... game ... involving ... two ... people ... giving ... clues ... one ... word ... at ... a ... time ... to ... a ... third ... person. In this iteration, there are four celebrities and two contestants. Like most other Bob Stewart pilots, it was done on the primo cheap and it shows. If he would had just spent a little more, he probably could have made a lot more.

The main game involved the first team establishing a time to beat by getting four correct answers guessed by the middle people with the people at the end giving clues one word at a time. The other team then tries to beat the time. Curiously, the teammates do not change positions after each round. For example, in the first game, both John Ritter and Debralee Scott were the guessers for all four games. The first team to win three rounds moves on to the "Hot Spot" for a chance at $5,000.

Bob Stewart usually recycles bonus games from other pilots before one works, but I haven't seen this one in any other game. It's a shame, because it's a pretty good one. There are three categories and nine letters. Player #1 picks a category, player #2 picks a letter, and player #3 tries to guess a word in that category that stats with the letter. Then Player #3 and #1 reverse roles, and this continues until all 9 letters are removed or the 60 second clock expires. If a team fails to get all nine letters, the civilian contestant receives $100 per letter.

As much as Bob Stewart was infatuated with the alternate guessing thing, trying it until he got it on Go in 1983. This show could have sold, if it didn't look so cheap (the set looked just like Pyramid) and the sing-song clue giving didn't sound so annoying.

This is not the Pyramid set spray-painted blue and pink. //It's Get Rich Quick!//

The host is Los Angeles TV personality Steve Edwards. He never hosted a game show that made it to air.

Lynnie Greene (who left showbiz and became a writer) and Debralee Scott with the male civilian contestant.

Robert Urich and John Ritter with the female civilian contestant.

They try the bonus game inside some weird box.
