Clips was a pop culture game show where the more contestants know about pop culture, the greater their chances of winning prizes.


Four contestants competed to answer questions based on Movies, Television, and Music. At the start of the game, Liza Fromer, later Shaun Majumder, would give out information for questions about several pop culture films, TV shows, music, and occasionally sports of the era with clips being provided. To start, McGuire would ask a jump in question with the first person to buzz in getting a chance to answer. If he/she was right, they received one Clips star and a chance to earn up to four more by answering questions at each of the four coloured stations (Purple, Red, Green or Blue). After a clip was played, the co-host at their station asked the question pertaining to that clip. If they answered wrong at any time, they had to return to their podium and a new Jump In would be read. The contestant with the most Clips stars at the end of three minutes of gameplay won a prize for themselves and a home player. In the event of a tie, one more toss up was read and the one who answered correctly would win.

Three such rounds were played during the show with four different contestants playing and a different prize offered in each round. The one of the three winning contestants who won the most Clips stars would go on to the Big Wheel Round for a shot at the grand prize.

Big Wheel Round[]

The winner of the first three rounds got a chance to spin an eight-coloured space with two colours each. A clip would play on the coloured station of where the wheel stopped. If the contestant answered correctly on the final question, they won the grand prize.
