Pay It Off premiered on BET on October 2, 2009. In these tough economic times, wouldn't it be nice to out of the red and on the path to financial freedom? Everyone is looking for some relief, especially debt relief. Pay It Off is the first game show of its kind specifically aimed at helping individuals defray their bills and debts - one expense at a time. While most game shows focus primarily on the mechanics of the game play, Pay It Off focuses on the personal debt dilemmas of everyday people. This unique game show is divided into five rounds with increasing levels of difficulty within each round. As the game play progresses, the contestant has a chance to win more money to pay towards his/her debt. If the contestant makes it successfully through all five rounds, he/she then has the chance to earn $25,000 in the final bonus round!
