After the “I Do’s” Game Rules
The game is played with either three or four couples. All of the couples have met the eligibility
requirements for the show. For the first round, the wives are taken off the stage while the
husbands are asked how they thought their wives would answer three questions. The wives are
then brought back on stage and are asked for their answers for the same three questions. Once the
wife gives her answer, the husband reveals the answer that he previously gave, which is written
on a card. A match for that question is worth 5 points for the couple. Couples answers must
match exactly in words or context. In case of an issue or question regarding an answer, there are
three judges that will determine the outcome. Their decision is final. The judges are made up of
two audience members that have signed affidavits that they do not know any of the contestants
and a producer or production staff that also do not know any of the contestants.
The roles are reversed in the second round, where the husbands are taken off the stage and the
wives are asked four questions before the husbands are brought back on stage to give their
answers. The first three questions in this round are worth 10 points each, and the final question is
worth 25 points; the Host referrers to this as the “25-point bonus question.” The maximum
possible score for any couple is 70 points. The couple with the highest score at the end of the
second round wins a prize.
The grand prize could include just about anything: appliances, furniture, home entertainment
systems, trips, jewelry, electronics, etc.
Prior to the start of the show, each couple is asked to predict the total points they would earn. In
the event of a tie for first place, the tied couples will reveal a card showing this predicted score.
The couple that has the closest guess without going over their actual total wins. If all the tied
couples went over, the couple who has the closest guess wins.
