To start, viewers first vote on which one of the five potential contestants will actually get to play. Then, at a glance, the game itself ''seems'' simple: the contestant simply needs to beat Stefan Raab at things. The severity of these "things" however, vary widely. It might be trivia, it might be driving, it might be a mind puzzle, it might even be sports! Each match can go up to 15 rounds, with each round worth one point more than the last (but thenagain, the first round is only worth 1 point; you can probably infer what each round is worth, points-wise), the first to reach 61 points wins. If the contestant wins, they win ''big.'' If Raab wins, 500,000 is added to a ProgressiveJackpot for next time.

The thing that will shock the people who have never heard of this show before, is the mere fact that it actually exists. There have been some international versions though. The Australian and British versions were known as "Beat the Star"; it toned down the idea by having lower stakes, not being live or 5 hours long, and using celebrities as opponents instead. This version of the format is also used in Germany as ''Schlag den Star''.

Star'', positioning it as a lower stakes spin-off aired over the summer while the main version went on a slightly longer hiatus than usual. Following the series finale of the Raab version in 2015 as part of his retirement, ''Schlag den Star'' was upgraded into a live show to serve as its replacement.

* Badass: Stefan Raab is 48 as of early 2015, yet has a record of 51-36 and has swept two competitors (one of the two being an '''olympic gold medalist'''). There is a reason candidates can earn so much money by beating him, because it is not an easy task.

Added DiffLines:

* GrandFinale: The series finale aired in December 2015, with a slightly different format. Instead of Raab playing against 1 person, Raab played against 15, with each win awarding 100,000 from the final 1.5 million jackpot. The rest was given to the winner of a final game played against the winners.

Added DiffLines:

* DownToTheLastPlay: The 1-2-3...-15 scoring system is biased to create this. If played, [[BigGame Game 15]] is generally of a showdown-y nature (eg: penalty shootout, 15-ball pool, putt-off).


Added DiffLines:

*MundaneMadeAwesome: The show has featured many mundane activities as head to head games, including screwing in lightbulbs, pricing cans of food with a price gun, and hammering nails into wood.
