Not quite as sadistic as Strike It Rich, which gave money to contestants based on who had the saddest story, and viewers would call a special phone number and donate to their needs. Entire families would hoof it out to New York City to try to get their problems solved on TV, and then they'd fail the contest, and they'd have to rely on local charity to get them back home or else just huddle on the streets until they could.
Today we have Go Fund Me for that.
Between Strike It Rich and Twenty One, they almost banned game shows entirely.
