According to one review of the pilot, the show was slightly different compared to the NBC version, including it having 26 contestants who would compete against each other to be chosen by the host (Patrick Kielty) to win the grand prize. Additionally, the ABC version also included a "lame musical package" that the reviewer claimed felt more fitting in something like ''Family Challenge'' than this show.

There is a taping report of someone seeing the ABC version. The person described as pretty much the same as the NBC version, but had a play-in game that whittled 26 contestants to 1. Apparently, the show had a "very lame musical package" and a "horribly disinterested audience". And a contestant won $250,000.
