Hosted by Axle Whitehead, Channel Seven’s The Wall exists for one purpose and one purpose only - to give good people the opportunity to transform their lives. And when there are millions of dollars on the line, they’ll only need one lucky bounce and their futures could change in an instant.
In order to conquer The Wall, players need a mix of brains, bravery and blind luck, and even then, there’s no guarantees. It’s the ultimate game of risk and reward.
The rules are simple: a pair of teammates must try to beat The Wall by answering general knowledge questions. Answer correctly and the balls turn green and y down The Wall - wherever they land adds money to the team’s winning total. Get an answer wrong and the balls turn red and the money is deducted from the team’s total.
With cash values ranging from 1 dollar right up to 1 million dollars, massive amounts of money can be won and lost in seconds. The Wall gives, and The Wall takes away.
