WATCH | Thanks in part to the return of GSN's "Hellevator," normal game shows (and normal quiz-show contestants) may be a thing of the past.
WATCH | "Hellevator" contestants ride a haunted elevator into an abandoned slaughterhouse. (And Circa is letting you experience it in virtual reality -- click the link below)
WATCH | "Hellevator" screams are a far cry from contestants who shout for joy on more traditional game shows like "The Price is Right," "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune."
WATCH | Twenty-first-century game shows are disguised as reality shows. "Survivor" is basically a game show, but if you want to win $1 million, instead of just being a trivia expert, you may have to starve yourself on an island. Out with knowing geography, in with eating bugs.
WATCH | Old-school game shows, with "normal" contestants, seem kind of dated. While "Match Game" and "The $100,000 Pyramid" had a solid run in prime time this summer, they leaned on star clue-givers. Contestants on the current prime-time version of "Family Feud" are celebs, not your next-door neighbors.
WATCH | So, if you want to create or be on a game show in 2016, make sure it's terrifying, depends on celebrity involvement or is just downright weird, right down to its wacky contestants.
