The 1% Club premieres 26 April on Channel 7 and 7plus

The 1% Club

“With The 1% Club, a 10-year-old has the same chance as a 70-year-old to win the show.”

The 1% Club, Seven’s newest comedy quiz show premieres at 7:30 pm Wednesday, 26 April on Channel 7 and 7plus. 

By testing 1000 everyday Australians, questions are arranged from the ones almost everyone can answer to much harder questions. One hundred contestants begin every show and attempt to answer a selection of wordplays, puzzles, everyday facts, and pop culture references that get harder as the game progresses; starting with questions 90% of the country got right and progressing to questions smaller and smaller percentages of the population can solve. 

Each payer starts with $1000 in the bank. If they get questions wrong, they are eliminated and their money goes into the prize pot. Throughout the game, contestants will be offered a chance to use the $1000 to purchase a question pass, or cash out and walk away with their money. 

Whoever makes it to the end of the game will get to answer a question only 1% of the population can answer correctly. If they get it right, they can take home up to $100,000 and join The 1% Club

Australian stand-up comedian, political commentator, actor and writer Jim Jefferies will be hosting the show and describes the new show as funny, family-friendly and frustrating. 

“With The 1% Club, a 10-year-old has the same chance as a 70-year-old to win the show, so it’s something that anyone of any generation can play along with. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, but I didn’t know if anyone would give me the opportunity. I’m over the moon to be hosting The 1% Club, as it is right up my alley. 

“I normally get out around the 50% question when I play along. I’m quite good with the wordplays, but not the best at the math-based questions. I definitely wouldn’t risk the money for the 1% question, not that I’d get to it,” he said.

The 1% Club premieres on Wednesday, 26 April at 7:30 pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.
