Although I'm a woman, I feel this is really disproportionately rigged towards women with "luck". How else do women magically win 95% of the time? This doesn't happen in other shows. Annoying and it's extremely obvious. It seemed to be that way to a large extent with gsn's chain reaction too, although not as much to an extent as this show. Why can't they do a balanced game show like other companies?
