Of all the different types of shows out there, there is no denying that quiz shows are incredibly popular because they bring thrill, excitement and the feeling of triumph. Quiz shows are often very inclusive and engage the audience by putting their knowledge to the test.

Usually, the quiz show formats are quite similar to each other. They are hosted by one quiz master and participated by a few contestants. Only a few interestingly unusual quiz shows like You V YouTube — a YouTube original — brings more excitement, fun and entertainment. The show has an unconventional format with 10 creators posing questions to one challenger.

You V YouTube, a YouTube original, that is produced by Fremantle, was launched on 9 October, 2021. Fremantle is one of the largest and most successful creators, producers and distributors of content in the world. The show is hosted by an Indian television presenter, Gaurav Kapur.

Here are some interesting format details about the show

  • The quiz show starts with ‘Ground Zero’ with a player pool of five called ‘pool of challengers’. To select the first challenger, one question is posed by the show anchor with four options and contestants will get 10 seconds to answer correctly. The correct and the fastest contestant becomes the first challenger.
  • The challenger will face a maximum of 10 questions. These questions to the contestant are posed by nine permanent YouTube Creators. The level of toughness increases with every question as it is divided into three tiers (Silver, Gold & Diamond). Every right answer allows you to earn double the amount.
  • The tenth question is the “Wildcard” subject question and that would be asked by the guest creator. The subject varies for each episode, depending on the guest creator. The challenger must answer ten questions across ten different subjects for an opportunity to win over Rs. 10 Lakhs.
  • The quiz covers a wide range of subjects from Science, General Knowledge and Math to English, Travel, Food and Technology, with a novel and fun gameplay that tests contestants’ practical knowledge and skill beyond simply trivia.

The rest of the 4 challengers in the pool will continue to play along and can always have a chance to become the challenger to the creators in case the first challenger loses. This will be decided by the highest score in the ‘play along scoreboard’. Every two episodes, the player pool is changed. The contestant on the seat may remain if still playing.
