Hosted by Brooke Burns, six contestants must each face a challenge and successfully complete it or be placed in the "Dog Pound" with other losing players. After a challenge is described, the six players then vote for the player they believe is most likely to fail it. If a player loses the challenge they are placed in the Dog Pound but if they win, they may choose one of the players who voted for them to be placed in the Dog Pound. Being placed in the Dog Pound would eliminate a contestant from play. After four rounds in this manner, the last two players standing would compete in one last endurance challenge, where the loser would be placed in the Dog Pound. The last player, the "Top Dog" would compete with the dog pound members in a trivia challenge for $25,000.
