Finale of "Downfall," Chris and Rabia race the conveyor belt


On the season finale of “Downfall,” Chris Molles (Lomita, CA) will return and Rabia Hussain (Orinda, CA) will get her chance to play the game. The high-stakes, adrenaline-pumping game show — which puts contestants atop a 10-story building to see who has the focus and fearlessness to avoid his/her own ‘downfall’ and the chance to win $1 million and other prizes — airs TUESDAY, JULY 20 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. Chris Jericho is the host.  “Episode 105” —

 “Downfall” is played on the roof of a downtown Los Angeles high-rise, where contestants try to quickly answer a series of questions against the clock. Facsimiles of prizes are placed on a conveyor belt, with a pile of cash at the end ranging from $5,000 to $1 million. Players must answer the questions before their prizes go over the edge and off the roof. If the cash goes over, the game is finished and that player is eliminated. There are two ways to back up the belt: “Surrender a Personal Possession” (offering a personal possession for the conveyor belt and risking its going over the edge) or “Friend on the Belt” (putting friends or family members on the belt who can help them find the answers, but who also risk going over the edge).
