It's big, it's bright and it's brash! In an original new gameshow format for RTÉ One, RTÉ 2fm presenters Colm Hayes and Jim Nugent will be set loose on Sunday nights. 6.30 may never be the same again.
Colm & Jim Jim's Home Run brings together the big entertainment values of a traditional game show with lo-fi video over the net to produce the world's weirdest quizshow. Would you trust someone you've never met before to win over €5,000 for you? Thought not .
Each week a player in studio randomly selects a question category. They then have to select someone they've never met before to play the game and answer their multi-thousand euro question. The studio player has a minute to choose an online player from the hundreds who are available to play from home on their web cams. Once they make a choice the online player is called up live over the net and appears on a large video screen for the studio audience. Now the fun begins.
The web-cammers could be anywhere, from Sydney to Seattle. If the online player selected by the studio player answers the question and completes the fun challenge from their home the studio player banks some cash and gets to play for more. The online player also gets a cash prize. Successful studio players get to choose another online player however if they fail to find an online player who can answer both the question and do the challenge they exit the game.
If they don't get the question right, there's always random guys weird weekly challenge .
