The one thing The Tonight Show takes seriously is playing games. Jimmy Fallon has done everything from The Acting Game to Egg Roulette and The Whisper Challenge. But nothing — nothing — has the high stakes of Pup Quiz — Nothing.
In Pup Quiz, two competitors sit in fancy leather recliners (this is important because it’s not a regulated game of Pup Quiz if the competitors aren’t in fancy leather recliners). As they sit back, relaxed, the competitors are asked multiple “animal related” questions by a neutral party. The competitors then take turns answering said questions. If they get the query correct, they receive a puppy. If they get the question wrong, then their opponent gets the puppy that hangs in the balance. As I said — high stakes.
As the game goes on, sh*t gets real during Double Puppardy. During Double Puppardy, you can win two (2) puppies, or potentially lose them to your opponent. Then, for the final question, the aptly-named Final Puppardy comes into play. This, like Jeopardy, has an all-important question that puts all the puppies in the game on the line. The winner takes all the puppies, for better or worse.
