Trivia: Debt
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Wink Martindale was best known for his work on Gambit in the 1970s and Tic-Tac-Dough in the 1980s.
    • This was one of several games that Larry Toffler competed on as a contestant...after his hosting gig.
    • Frank Nicotero (of Street Smarts fame) was a contestant on the show — and he won!
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Hasn't been reran since it ended in 1998.
  • Screwed by the Network: Despite pulling in respectable numbers, Debt was cancelled after two seasons. The reason? The show was skewing too heavily toward the male demographic for a network with the tagline "Television for Women".
  • What Could Have Been: Rumors floated around during the run about possibly moving it into syndication or even the broadcast network schedules, with an increased prize budget (up to and including a grand prize of someone's entire mortgage being paid off). Nothing ever materialized.
