100 mexicanos dijeron (Spanish for A hundred Mexicans said), also known as 100 mexicanos dijieron, is a Mexican version of the Goodson-Todman game show from the 1970s, Family Feud, produced in Mexico City by the Las Estrellas.

From 2001 to 2006 the show was hosted by Marco Antonio Regil and was called 100 Mexicanos Dijeron; in 2009 the program was revived this time hosted by "El Vítor" (Adrian Uribe) and titled El Vítor presenta 100 Mexicanos Dijieron.[1] The newest season premiered on April 30, 2017 and was titled as 100 Mexicanos Dijieron.[2]

Game administration[edit]

For main game play, see Family Feud.

The game is administered like the U.S. version of the game, with three single value questions, a double, and a triple value question. MX$5,000 is awarded for winning the game.

If neither family has three hundred points after four rounds, the fifth round is administered like the 1999-2003 US version (Anderson and first year of Karn) fourth round in that contestants will have the opportunity to pass or play, and the family loses control of the board on one strike.

Dinero Rápido (Fast Money)[edit]

The winning family chooses two family members to play. One family member leaves the stage and is placed in an isolation booth, while the other is given fifteen seconds to answer five survey questions. If he or she can't think up an answer to any particular question, he or she may pass and come back to the question at the end, time permitting, the number of people giving each answer is then revealed answer by answer after the player is finished answering or time has expired. The player earns one point for each person that gave the same answer; at least two people must have given that answer for it to appear on the board.

Once all the points for the first player are tallied, the second family member comes back on stage and is given twenty seconds to answer the same five questions, the host will ask for another response should an answer be duplicated.

If one or both family members accumulate a total of 200 points or more, the family wins MX$100,000. If the family gets 200 points and gives the top answer in each question, they win MX$125,000. If the family scores less than 200 but gives the top answer in each question, they win MX$25,000.

On February 3, 2004, when the show was expanded to a full-hour format, an extra element was added to the second "Dinero Rápido", "La canasta de tentación" ("the basket of temptation"), a basket full of items, attached to each of which is a flag saying one of the following:

  • Buena suerte ("good luck"): Simply means "good luck" and has no other effect.
  • $5,000: The family playing gains MX$5,000.
  • Dinero Extra: The family earns MX$25 per point for a DR loss. Not used long.
  • Puntos extra ("extra points"): The family gains anywhere from five to fifty extra points. It is only truly effective if the family's score is at least 150 points.
  • El Doble ("the double"): The family plays for MX$200,000. They win MX$225,000 if they gain two hundred points and give the top answer in each question.

American nexus[edit]

100 mexicanos dijeron [or 100 mexicanos dijieron] ("Family Feud"), along with Trato hecho ("Let's Make a Deal"), are two classic 1970s game shows revived for Latin American audiences. Because of the close cultural connections with the US, many questions have American as well as Latino answers.

The board game[edit]

Due to the high popularity of this show, a board game of the same name has been created, it is sold in Mexico for approximately MX$167-MX$180 (roughly US$16-US$17.50). The game contains 480 question cards, a 39x26 cm board, a pencil and a notepad.

Like in the show, two teams are formed and have to guess the answers given to the questions, the first team to reach 500 points wins. Unlike the TV show, the game does not include the final phase called Dinero Rápido ("Quick Cash", aka "Fast Money") where two players attempt to get up to 200 points answering five questions each. However, it hasn't been rare that families or parties playing attempt an imitation of the Dinero Rápido round.
