*** Said consolation prizes were also left unmentioned on the program for the same reasons, leading to the popular belief that the losers were left with nothing, adding to the show's infamy.



** An alternate game show used similar questions...but with a twist. Mentioning a specific Grant, or asking where Panama hats are made. In Ulysses S. Grant's tomb (which is ''above'' ground), there's both Ulysses S. Grant AND his wife, Julia! (Panama hats are NOT made in Panama, but in Ecuador.)

** A contestant once gave the proper answer of "no one" to the Grant's Tomb question. Groucho was surprised that he got it "wrong" until the contestant pointed out that Grant's Tomb is an ''above ground mausoleum''.

* In the WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures fic ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'', even though Jade's DangerouslyGenreSavvy BatmanGambit to steal the masks from Section 13 fails, SOLELY due to the SpannerInTheWorks known as Agent Wisker, she still manages to escape with information on the locations of the ''other'' set of artifacts she was looking for!

** ''Series/TheCrystalMaze'' once ran a special edition of the show where the contestants were kids. They did really well but fell down at the last hurdle - the famous crystal dome, missing out on the grand prize - a trip to Disneyland. Or so they thought. In what also counts as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming for the show, the host suddenly revealed that they were going to Disneyland anyway.

More conventionally, every competitor, regardless of how well they did, got a replica of one of the crystals.

** ''Series/BlanketyBlank'' had "The Blankety Blank chequebook and pen!", [[{{Spoonerism}} spoonerised]] in the Les Dawson era as "chequepen and book!"

to:

* In a number of the ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' video games, losing a set number of times (normally 10 times) unlocks the SecretCharacter Mokuba, Kaiba's BrattyHalfPint little brother. As should be obvious, he is the easiest duelist to beat by a good margin, so the game is basically insulting you by giving you the 'privilege' of playing with one of the main character's younger siblings until you get better.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Miitomo}}'', the Miitomo Drop game has a few spaces on the bottom that award candy, if you were unfortunate enough to not land near a clothing item.
