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:
- Color of Hair or Eyes
- Place Born
- Number of Children
- Current Residence
- 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.
