10 Worst Prizes Offered By TV Game Shows

High Rollers

The 1970s game show High Rollers became famous during its run for offering strange prizes to competitors. These often included bizarre things like African masks, ceremonial swords and even a fishbowl worth a staggering $10,000 – something that became rather less valuable if you didn’t have any fish.


There were several prizes given away on the daytime game show Runway, with the eventual winner getting the chance to play for a luxury holiday. Everyone else though only got a very small consolation award, typically a newspaper from the day that they were born.
