College Mad House
College Mad House Description:

Really, the title says it all. Students from rival colleges competed on teams of four (two men, two women) in goofy, messy challenges. One, Crab Soccer, involved teams on hands and knees, stomach facing up, trying to kick a ball into the opposing goal. On another, Pillow Pole, teams were on platforms smeared with a slippery substance, knocking each other off to the ground with pillows.

"Finals" involved a speed round of questions, at the end of which one team got to hit the other team in the face with a pie. The "Mad House" was a three-story obstacle course the winning team had to race through in two minutes, grabbing prizes along the way. The show was a spin-off of the children's game show, "Fun House."
