There's a ton at stake for the cash-strapped contestants in this reality-competition series ... literally. The challenge? A 300-mile journey during which the 14 players must work together to transport exactly 2,000 pounds of cold, hard cash from Los Angeles to Las Vegas without losing a single dollar. While that may sound relatively easy, the route the contestants take is not -- they have to cross such tough landscapes as mountain ranges and barren deserts and also get past both natural and man-made obstacles, and they have to arrive at checkpoints in allotted times. Failing that, the prize amount decreases ... but so does the money load they have to carry to the next location. Helping them decide how to best negotiate the journey's legs are financial advisers. But the biggest decisions are left to the players, as at the end of each episode one contestant is sent home. The one who remains in the game at the finish wins whatever cash makes it to Vegas.
