Split Personality was a short-lived game show, where two contestants tried to identify a celebrity from clues like height and hair color.

Game format[edit | edit source]

Two contestants attempted to identify celebrities from biographical clues that are spilt between two huge electronic game boards facing them. Each player chose a clue to give to his or her opponent. Among the possible clues a player could choose from were:

  • Sex
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Color of Hair or Eyes
  • Place Born
  • Number of Children
  • Current Residence
  • Occupation
  • Picture of Spouse

The first player to correctly guess the identity won the game and the first player to win two games won the match along with a jackpot of the prizes.

Bonus Round[edit | edit source]

In the bonus round, the champion was shown a picture of two celebrities whose images had been combined into one. If both images were correctly guessed, then the champion won a bonus prize.
