* LaserGuidedKarma: In the kitchen in the second episode, [[spoiler: a female contestant became helplessly stuck in the non-Newtonian floor on her hands and knees. One male contestant eventually stopped to try to pull her out, even though he was nearly the last one left in the room as a result; he only left after the female contestant told him to save himself and leave her in the room. Meanwhile, another male contestant saw what was going on, but refused to help and abandoned both contestants, continuing to collect money while they struggled. The first male contestant not only collected the most money from the kitchen (thus earning the special advantage in the next round) but also went on to win the game, while the second male contestant was the last one remaining in the next round and was therefore trapped (in the estate's sewer system, no less).]]

One male contestant eventually stopped to try to free her, even though he was nearly the last one left in the room as a result; the female contestant ultimately told him to save himself and leave her in the room.

''Estate of Panic'' was a GameShow that had a very brief run on [[Creator/{{Syfy}} Sci-Fi Channel]] in 2008, and aired alongside ''[[Series/ChaseGameShow Cha$e]]'', a "live-action video game" show. It was hosted by Steve Valentine and came from the minds of the same folks who brought us ''Series/FearFactor''. Each week, seven contestants were brought to a [[OldDarkHouse "spooky mansion"]] supposedly out in the middle of nowhere (the show was filmed in Argentina) where Valentine would literally give away his money in a set of three rooms (chosen by him) in his estate. However, there was a huge catch - these rooms were anything but normal; while the players searched for the money, things would happen in the room and/or various creatures would appear to distract and frighten the contestants. Examples included a basement that quickly [[DrowningPit flooded up to near ceiling level with water]], a garden laced with electrical wires, a study that would [[TheWallsAreClosingIn close in and shrink on the occupants]], and other nasty surprises.

** ''Замок страху'' (''Castle of Fear'') in the Ukraine, which is set in an estate in Moscow instead of Argentina. Played similarly to the US version except that the seven contestants are all from the same family. If the sole survivor escapes the Vault, the prize money is split amongst the family; if not, the family wins nothing (and there is no Panic Button in this version).

Added DiffLines:

** In the Ukraine, certain rooms have trap doors that close behind you and ''will not let you out'' for the remainder of the round, effectively eliminating you right then and there and forcing you to find a way to get the money to your other family members to build up the bank.

* CoveredInGunge: The sewer, kitchen, trash compactor and trophy room.room. ''Every room'' in the Ukraine, especially since buckets of whatever the contestants are digging or wading through are repeatedly dumped onto the contestants from above.


Added DiffLines:

* ForeignRemake: At least two:
** ''Jogo Duro'' (''Hard Game'') in Brazil, which is set in an abandoned factory. Eight players compete instead of seven, with the two remaining contestants playing one final round in the flooding basement instead of the Vault; the player who recovers the least amount of cash receives only the amount recovered in that room, while the winner receives the total amount recovered all night.
