* Literally ''any'' competition on the Creator/FoodNetwork involving multiple contestants will have one person get the grand prize and everyone else leave with nothing except the cooking experience (though that ''can'' sometimes be a good enough prize on its own). Examples include Series/CutthroatKitchen, Kitchen Casino, Series/{{Chopped}}, Guy's Grocery Games, Series/CupcakeWars, and The Great Food Truck Race (though that one is somewhat of a subversion; the competitors with more tragic motivations, such as a fiancée lost to cancer or a store destroyed by a well-known hurricane, will often have a consolation in that donations will be given to help those causes).

** On ''Cutthroat Kitchen'', each chef is issued $25,000 to use on purchasing sabotages through auctions, so an outcome in which the ''[[PyrrhicVictory winner]]'' [[PyrrhicVictory leaves with absolutely nothing]] is a very real possibility. Though rare, some chefs will spend every last dollar available to avoid receiving something particularly nasty.[[note]]The closest the show has come to awarding "nothing" has been a payout of $300. Interestingly, for a show that encourages spending, [[FlawlessVictory one chef did win "all"]] by [[PacifistRun not bidding in any auctions]].[[/note]]

* The terms of the will in both the original novel of ''BrewstersMillions'' and its various film adaptations essentially give Brewster an all-or-nothing challenge; if he spends the original 'inheritance' in its entirety, he gets the full amount, if he doesn't then he leaves with nothing.

* On Website/{{Kickstarter}} and similar crowd-funding sites, by default a project will only take its backers' money if it reaches its funding target; if the target is not met, it receives zero funds. Some services, such as Website/{{Indiegogo}}, provide an option to give a project "flexible funding", which allows the project to receive funds even if the target is not met; however, the site may charge a higher percentage if the campaign fails to reach its target.

* In ''Star Wars Episode I: Pod Racer'', you can choose one of three ways to distribute prize money, depending on how confident you are at winning. One of the options is "Winner Takes All," which gives a massive amount of cash to the racer who places 1st but nothing for anyone else. Once you finish a series of races and get prize money, however, you can't get any more prize money, making this a real wager.
