$10,000 Trivia Ladder
The contestants played individually rather than as a team, placed at three numbered podiums based on their performance in the Trivia Race. The contestant at the first podium was shown four answers to the first question and could either attempt the question or pass. If the first contestant passed, the second contestant was given the same option. If both contestants passed, the remaining contestant was forced to answer the question. The question was asked, and the player in control attempted to select the correct answer from among the four possible to win $1,000 and the right to attempt the $10,000 question. Answering the question incorrectly eliminated the contestant from the rest of the round. This process repeated for the second question, with one of the remaining two electing to play or pass.
The final question for $10,000 again had four answer choices, but it was played differently from the previous three questions. If one contestant was left, that contestant simply stated his or her answer as before. Otherwise, contestants chose an answer secretly by pushing a button on a hidden panel inside their podiums. Any team member who correctly answered the final question won an equal share of the $10,000 prize. If only one team member answered correctly, he or she won the entire $10,000.
Any team that played the Trivia Ladder five times retired undefeated.

Famous quotes containing the words trivia and/or ladder:
“Pop artists deal with the lowly trivia of possessions and equipment that the present generation is lugging along with it on its safari into the future.”
—J.G. (James Graham)
“This monument, so imposing and tasteful, fittingly typifies the grand and symmetrical character of him in whose honor it has been builded. His was the arduous greatness of things done. No friendly hands constructed and placed for his ambition a ladder upon which he might climb. His own brave hands framed and nailed the cleats upon which he climbed to the heights of public usefulness and fame.”
—Benjamin Harrison (18331901)
