On the show Russian Roulette, where do the contestants fall?

The contestants who fall drop into a secure, padded area so that no one gets hurt, says a spokeswoman for GNS, The Network for Games, which airs the show hosted by Mark L. Walberg. "We take all safety precautions and everyone is aware of what will happen,'' the spokeswoman says. Contestants on the show challenge each other with multiple-choice questions. When a contestant answers incorrectly, he or she pulls a lever that triggers a drop zone. A correct answer earns cash. The last contestant standing advances to the final round to win $100,000 or falls into a black hole.
