Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Janelle James and executive produced by Peyton Manning, THE FINAL STRAW is a one-hour physical comedy game show that features four teams of contestants facing off to combat tremendous tipping towers. Each life-sized themed tower is chock full of various objects ranging from basketballs to small kitchen appliances as contestants try to successfully pull items from the stack without tipping it over in order to earn prizes. If the tower falls, the team is eliminated and the last team standing will compete against The Mega Stack, an epic battle of physics where the odds are literally stacked against them, in hopes of winning a life-changing grand prize of $250,000.
On Sunday, September 18, 2022 at 10pm ET/PT, ABC premiered "They All Fall Down," the season finale of THE FINALE STRAW. Four teams of contestants compete in an epic battle against gravity and physics as they attempt to remove items from towering, themed stacks. In round one, a pair of best friends who are planning the girls' trip of their dreams tries to defeat two competitive brothers on the kids' room stack. In round two, a couple here to put their love to the test takes on a pair of musical theater classmates, who are used to performing under pressure, on the wedding stack. The winners from each round face off against the pirates' stack to earn a shot at The Mega Stack for a chance to win the grand prize of $250,000 on the season finale
