Babushka

Rylan Clark-Neal hosts ITV’s newest game show Babushka.
 
Babushka is a high-stakes game show with a simple objective: find the money hidden inside 10 giant Babushka dolls… and keep it.
 
One pair of contestants takes part per episode. They must open 8 of the 10 dolls for a chance to win up to £44,000.
 
Players need to answer a true or false question to open each Babushka. Get a question wrong and that doll, plus any banked cash, is lost. Get it right (and there’s a smaller doll inside) they can start banking cash.
 
Contestants can open each Babushka as many times as they want. But, if they push it too far – and find no smaller doll inside – all banked money is lost.
 
One Babushka is hiding enough smaller dolls to be worth a whopping £10,000.
 
However, if the players open an empty Babushka (there’s two hiding in each round) they lose any banked cash.
 
The players get three ‘helps’ and can double their winnings at the end of the game by finding the golden Babushka.
 
But they need to hold their nerve as once the game starts there’s no opportunity to cash out early.
