Ultimate Answers was an action sports trivia and game show produced by Fuel TV between 2012 and 2017. The show was hosted by Pat Parnell, a professional surfer who also served as a host for other action sports events. The show focused on action sports-related questions and challenges, with contestants competing for the ultimate prize of a trip to an action sports event of their choice.

The format of the show was unique, combining traditional trivia questions with physical challenges that tested the contestants' skills in various action sports. The show kicked off with a "warm-up" round, during which the contestants had to answer action sports trivia questions as quickly as possible. The two contestants with the fastest correct answers proceeded to the next round.

In the second round, the contestants faced off in a physical challenge that tested their skills in a particular action sport. The challenges varied from episode to episode and included surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, motocross, and BMX. The winner of the challenge earned a "hot seat" advantage in the next round.

The third round, known as the "hot seat" round, was the most challenging. The contestant with the hot seat advantage had to answer a series of rapid-fire questions about their chosen action sport, with each correct answer earning them points. The other contestant then had a chance to steal the hot seat by answering a series of increasingly difficult questions correctly.

The final round was the "final showdown," where the two remaining contestants faced off in a head-to-head challenge that combined physical challenges and action sports trivia. The winner of the final showdown earned the grand prize of a trip to an action sports event of their choice.

One of the highlights of the show was its emphasis on showcasing up-and-coming action sports athletes. Each episode featured interviews with professional athletes who shared their experiences, tips, and insights on their respective sports. The interviews were accompanied by footage of the athletes in action, which added to the excitement and authenticity of the show.

Another unique feature of the show was the use of social media to engage with viewers. Throughout the episodes, viewers were encouraged to participate in live polls and tweet their opinions using a specific hashtag. The show's producers would then display the tweets on screen, creating an interactive and engaging experience for viewers.

Ultimate Answers was well received by action sports fans and trivia enthusiasts alike. The show managed to strike a perfect balance between entertaining and educating viewers, thanks to its unique format and engaging content. Despite its relatively short run, Ultimate Answers remains a cult favorite among action sports fans and trivia buffs, and its legacy continues to inspire other innovative game shows that combine sports and trivia.
