TV Veteran's New Game Show a Chinese Hit

A new game show created by Hong Kong television veteran Robert Chua has become a hit in Shanghai. Chua's new game show Everyone Wins made its debut on the leading Shanghai Oriental Television on New Year's Day in the No 3 slot among more than 25 stations available to Shanghai, according to ratings compiled by AC Nielsen.

"The show has had an impact that I could not have dreamed possible. It took weeks before quiz shows like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? to establish itself in the UK, for example," said Chua, who created Hong Kong's first ever "live" variety show Enjoy Yourself Tonight (EYT) in 1967. The program is the longest-running variety show on Hong Kong television.

Everyone Wins is the first of several new game show concepts created by Chua in the past two years. Seven contestants stand to win a maximum of 115,000 yuan (about US$14,000) by answering 20 questions presented in four rounds. All contestants answer the same questions by a secret ballot only each individual contestant and the audience are able to see.

The format has also been licensed by Hong Kong's dominant broadcaster Hong Kong Television Broadcasts Ltd (TVB) and Singapore Mediacorp's Channel 8.
