I think that's probably one of the fundamental driving forces of the universe, along with "burning wheel always rolls out of flaming wreckage" and "when fully laden table collapses, one unbroken plate rolls out and spins to a halt". Oh, I know, I'm stealing from Terry Pratchett again...I wonder if he's going to write a book that's a take-off of game shows soon?

Oh and by the way, I have seen a book sort of like that. It's called "The Omega Game" and these people are offered a set reward of 250k and the winners split 25 mil. Only they have their memory knocked out so they don't remember the deal, and a drug lord using an alias, who is also a contestant, steals all the informational packet things. Things can, and do, get very interesting.
