* The ''highest'' scoring pair in the first two rounds of Series/{{Pointless}} is eliminated - although this is because of how scoring works in the game, which is essentially reverse Series/FamilyFortunes.

* This trope actually predates competitive reality shows, having been in use on Adam Wade's version of ''[[Series/{{Musical Chairs 1975}} Musical Chairs]]'', if not earlier.

* ''TheBiggestLoser'' has a variation; the two contestants who lose the least weight are voted on by the others to decide who goes home (with least weight lost as a tiebreaker).

* On Golf Channel's ''TheBigBreak'', there are no votes. Each show ends with an elimination challenge, where the golfer who finishes last is eliminated. A golfer won an exemption from an elimination challenge by winning the skills challenge. * ''FearFactor'' had this as part of its structure. In the initial six person set up, the men competed against each other in the first stunt and likewise with the women with one of each being eliminated. On the second day all four would be against each other sometimes with one being eliminated that day and others would have all four advancing to the final stunt.

* In the earlier rounds, ''TopShot'' uses a variation similar to that of ''American Ninja Warrior'' above. The losing team nominates two people, who are pitted against each other in an "elimination challenge" loosely related to the main challenge; the loser of the elimination challenge goes home. Played far straighter once the teams merge; the lowest performer in a challenge is the one to be eliminated (in one case, the bottom two).

* TopChef has had a few challenges like this, but only one where losers actually had to pack their knives and go. More usually, things like relay races and "how many ingredients can you identify" give an advantage to the winner instead.

* ''{{Solitary}}'' plays this a different way. Elimination challenges (or "Treatments") push the contestants to physical, mental, and emotional extremes. When the contestants have had enough, they [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere quit]]. The first player to quit is sent home, the rest get to stay.

* On ESPN's sports-talk show ''AroundTheHorn'', host Tony Reali awards points to the four sportswriters on the panel (or subtracts them, if he finds their replies lacking). As the show progresses, the lowest-scoring panelist at each of several cuts is "muted" for the rest of the show, eventually leaving the last panelist standing 30 seconds to pontificate on any topic (s)he wishes.

**Played straight in season 5, All-Stars. Gone is the Nominations Range, as well as permanent squads; the game is individual from the get-go and instead of voting people into elimination challenges, a "Proving Grounds" challenge is played among the contestants with the lower scores in the immunity challenge to determine the two shooters in the elimination challenge.

* On the short lived late 70s revival of ''Jeopardy!'', the contestant with the lowest amount of money at the end of the first game was eliminated and only the other two went on to the "Double Jeopardy" round.
