The game show with a difference: in “My Man Can” 4 women gamble with the abilities their partners possess – and put the men’s courage and skills to the test. How far are the men able to go? Which of these women knows her better half best? Which of them will set the stakes too high and drive her partner to distraction?
She sits at a gambling table and bets her rivals that her man can accomplish certain tasks and go further than the others. He waits helplessly in a soundproof cubicle, waiting to hear the task his woman has accepted on his behalf. No eye contact, out of earshot.
Which of the men can eat the most chili peppers? Who knows the most about cosmetics? Which of them can smash the most windows with footballs, and who is fastest when it comes to making the bed?
The game mix of courage, knowledge, athletic ability and a whole range of skills makes all the difference between victory and defeat. But it is down to the women to assess their partner's skills correctly – or will he suddenly produce undreamt-of abilities and talents to astonish everybody?
Each of the women is given 100 gambling chips which she uses to bet in each round of the game. After the betting it is time to put the cards on the table. If she has claimed “My Man Can” eat 10 chili peppers, he has to do so. If he performs the challenge, she wins the jackpot. In each case only 1 of the men attempts the task, rather than several competing against each other.
If the woman has overestimated her partner’s abilities, the chips in the pot are distributed among the other women at the table. The 2 couples who end up in the final are faced with a tantalizing choice: do they try to perform the task, or let the others take their chance?
Because somebody has to win the big prize... and if the couple that makes the attempt fails, the lucky losers walk away with all the money.
