Bet On Your Baby
- 2 Seasons
Bet On Your Baby is the new reality based game show that is being shown on ABC. The host of Bet On Your Baby is Melissa Peterman. The game show is one where parents and their kids compete in certain games and if the parent and kid tandem are successful then they are awarded a $5,000 scholarship for college for the child. Each episode features several children and their parents and the finale of the show is one where one of the teams are able to compete for the grand prize of $50,000 in the form of a college scholarship. Bet On Your Baby takes one half of the parent team and asks them a question of whether they believe that their child will be able to do a certain task. Some of the examples of the tasks are things such as 'will your baby be able to stack cups' or 'will you baby be able to identify at least 8 of the animals' that are on post cards. Either the mother or the father places the bet while the other half goes inside of the 'Baby Dome' where the task will take place. The Baby Dome is designed like a child's nursery or kindergarten type setting and they are isolated from the audience and the other parent who is watching on television. If the parent makes the correct 'bet' and is able to determine that the child is able to do the task, the parent and child team win the $5,000 and then they have a chance to compete for the grand prize of the $50,000 scholarship. Bet On Your Baby airs on ABC on Saturday nights at 8 p.m. EST. Each episode usually has about four or five parent/baby teams competing and then it is at the end of the show when the lucky team gets to compete for the grand prize.
