    You Bet Your Life 58-03-31 Secret Word 'Name'

    You Bet Your Life was a comedy quiz show that aired from 1947 to 1956, with Groucho Marx as the host and George Fenneman as his assistant. It was first heard on ABC Radio in 1947, then on CBS Radio in 1949, before it made its way to the television in 1950. In 1960, the show changed its name to The Groucho Show. The contestants for the show were chosen from the live audience or sometimes well-known or interesting celebrities. The chosen contestants will then play in pairs-- one male, one female. The pairs were made in such as way that each one is a complete opposite of the other, which makes it interesting. After introducing themselves, each pair will then be required to choose a category (from the 20 available) and answer the questions under it. The show had different format through its run, but basically, the more correct answers the pair gives, the higher their pot money becomes; on the opposite, if they give the wrong answer, their money will be reduced. The pair with the highest earnings/score will proceed to the jackpot round, where they will risk half of their winnings to answer the final question. They win the jackpot if the final question is answered correctly.
