It's the latest mind-bending game show gripping the nation. Hosted by Aussie comedian Jim Jefferies, The 1% Club turns the tables on know-it-alls and challenges viewers to think outside the box each Wednesday at 7:30pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.
Forget about cramming general knowledge for this show; The 1% Club is all about using logic, reasoning skills and common sense. The show invites contestants and viewers alike to discover if they have what it takes to join the elite ranks of The 1% Club (whether you can correctly answer a question that only 1% of the population would get right).
How The 1% Club works
The show brings together 100 everyday Australians from all walks of life, who are then whittled down as we find out who is in the top 10% of thinkers, who is in the top 50% and, well, who tries to get their bread out of the toaster with a fork. Contestants might be in the top 1% of the nation and not even know it - and if they are, they could walk away with a $100,000 prize.
The game kicks off with a question that 90% of the country got right (based on a sample of answers from people across Australia). As the show progresses, contestants face a series of increasingly challenging questions, with the goal of finding hidden gems of knowledge that only a select few can answer.
The appeal of The 1% Club lies in its refreshing approach to testing your intellect. It's not about regurgitating facts and figures; it's about flexing your mental muscles and approaching questions from unexpected angles.
