Plot Synopsis

Alfonso Ribeiro hosts this one-hour game show, which challenges contestants to correctly spell words while being distracted, as seven players vie for the $10,000 cash prize. As the one-hour episode progresses, the words get more difficult, the distractions become more outrageous, and more contestants are sent to the Loozer's Lounge. But all is not lost. After the third round, when five competitors are in the Loozer's Lounge, the studio audience votes which eliminated player can rejoin the competition. Challenges include: "Buzzed In," where all but one contestant advances by maneuvering a slippery obstacle course, pressing a buzzer, and correctly spelling a word; "Zapped," during which two players are eliminated when they incorrectly spell two words while being zapped, blasted with cold air, sprayed in the face with water, and soaked with blue slushy ice water; "Slam Dunk," during which two players are eliminated when they correctly spell the fewest number of words in 60 seconds while being strapped to a chair, dunked in ice water, and soaked with blue slushy ice water; "Splash Chamber," where one contestant is eliminated after incorrectly spelling three words while being sprayed with various liquids like soap water, distracted by a pair of gloved hands from behind, and soaked with blue slushy ice water; "Sensory Overload," where the remaining two contestants have 60 seconds to correctly spell as many words as possible while being distracted by flashing monitors, blaring speakers, lasers, flash bulbs and strobe lights; and other competitions like "In Your Face."
