This is definitely something unique to discuss, if you like Hellevator or not:
I caught the very end of the most recent episode of Hellevator (from 11/18) and saw a $51,000 team win. Meanwhile, the top prize is only suppose to be $50,000 for Hellevator. I cannot be certain how this worked out since I did not actually see more than two minutes of the episode, but for the first time in the series run thus far for Hellevator, all three members of the team made it to the final "Labyrinth" round. $30,000 obviously came from the individual challenges, but more than the $20,000 goal for the "labyrinth" was won.
So far in the Hellevator run (five episodes), contestants have walked out with $136,840, by far GSN's priciest production when it comes to all around costs (props and extras too).
