GameShow Trope where eliminated contestants, instead of merely being bid farewell, are forcefully ejected from the studio. Differs from a Walk of Shame, but often times no less humiliating. Generally, the contestants are not even given time to speak before they are removed. Ejections can range from being dropped through a simple TrapDoor in the floor, to being disintegrated via CGI, to being launched off the edge of a cliff.

* One round of the Chunin Exams early on in ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'' is hosted by Shikamaru. He asks a yes-or-no trivia question to the examinees, and they have to stand on {{Trap Door}}s labeled "yes" or "no." He explains that a wrong answer will drop them into a pit of ink and that anyone with ink on them when the round ends automatically fails the exam. True to Shikamaru's indirect nature, this round runs on ExactWords: [[spoiler:The answer is a trick question, and ''every examinee'' gets dropped into the pit. The ''real'' purpose of this test is to see who can react quickly enough to break their fall before they reach the ink while not letting any of it splash onto themselves.]]

* Inverted by ''Masters of the Maze'', where the member of the ''winning'' team that had run the maze was disintegrated into a floating ball of particles via CGI and sent on a "special journey" through the set and into the game's giant monitor.

* ''VideoGame/{{Gruntz}}'': This happens to your Gruntz in [[CasinoPark High Rollerz]] (essentially a FloatingContinent Casino) if they are touched by a spotlight, which forces them to sing. Unfortunately they're unable to sing properly, so a hole opens below them and drops them from a great height to their death.

* The SyFy game show ''Series/TotalBlackout'' uses the mechanic in a slightly different way. After each round, the remaining contestants stand in front of trap doors and, on Jaleel White's command, are told to jump onto them. The contestant with the least amount of points in the round drops out of the game, while the other contestants' doors stay shut.

* In ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' Akane attempts to get the two leads to be more open about their feelings for each other... by setting up a mock game show in which she questions them about their relationship and each "dishonest" answer causes them to be tipped further and further toward a mud pit. [[TheGadfly Akane being Akane]], she sets it up so they both end up going into the mud pit regardless of their answers.

* ''Series/BrainSurge'': Contestants locked in their guesses during the second round by sitting on a chair covered in {{Whoopee Cushion}}s. The first two players to answer incorrectly were greeted by farts and then pulled backwards through the giant paper teeth of a giant Jeff Sutphen's face. Totally not a reference to ''Remote Control'', we promise!

* ''Series/WhosStillStanding'' recycled the "hole in the floor" concept from ''Russian Roulette''. One contestant (the "Hero") stood on a TrapDoor on the center of the stage and faced off against a circle of ten competitors also standing on trap doors (the "Strangers") in a series of trivia duels. Eliminated contestants dropped ten feet into a padded room below the stage. If the Hero decided to walk away at one point and keep his or her winnings, (s)he then had the option of either walking out of the studio or by dropping through the floor. [[EveryEpisodeEnding Every episode ended]] with host Ben Bailey (of ''CashCab'' fame) also dropping through the Hero's trap door.
