This is chronicling the 2018 version of Beat the Clock where it features mostly kids as contestants although in some episodes it features their adult relatives as well.

Game format[]

Two teams of two kids (sometimes one kid and his/her adult relative) (one dressed in purple and the other dressed in green) in a mad race against time filled with zany stunts & challenges. They'll be playing three rounds of stunts. The first round is worth $100/stunt and the second round is worth $150/stunt. The third and final round is a head-to-head challenge for $300 for a possible grand total of $550. Both teams get to keep the cash, but the team with the most money at the end of round three wins the game and goes on to try and Beat The Big Clock for over $2,000.

The Big Clock[]

The winning team has one minute (60 seconds) to compete one final four-part stunt. Each part completed is worth $250, and completing all four parts wins the team $2,000 and a $1,000 donation to their favorite charity. This makes the possible grand total for one team, $2,550.


This is 2nd revival of the classic 50s game show and serves as true revival.
