Just Men!

Just Men! Information

Just Men! is an American game show that aired on NBC Daytime from January 3 to April 1, 1983. The show starred Betty White, who won an Emmy award for her work on the show, with Steve Day announcing.


Two female contestants faced a group of seven male celebrities for the chance to win a car. At the start of each show, White would mix the key that started the car with six others that did not, and handed one key to each celebrity.

Round 1

In the first round, the panel had been asked a yes or no question to which at least two celebrities had answered "yes." Starting with the champion, each contestant questioned the panel for one minute (although a celebrity whose answer was already revealed would not be questioned again), using questions prepared for them in advance pertaining to the round's topic. Following the questioning, the contestant selected a celebrity she thought answered "yes." Doing so won that celebrity's key. If two "yes" answers had not been found after each contestant had a turn, they then took turns each asking one celebrity one question and then making a choice until two keys had been claimed.

Round 2

In round two, the panel was asked another yes or no question, to which at least two of the panelists with unclaimed keys had answered "no." The second round was played the same as the first, except the contestants looked for panelists who said "no." Again, a correct prediction won a key, but a wrong prediction this time resulted in the key for that panelist being awarded to her opponent. Each contestant took one turn.

Round 3 (catch-up round)

In the final round, each player took turns asking one of the remaining celebrities one question, based on the round's topic. The contestant then decided if the celebrity said "yes" or "no" to the round's question. If right, she won the key and took one of her opponent's keys as well, if any. Otherwise, the key went to her opponent.

After all seven keys were claimed, the contestant with more keys won the game and played the bonus round. The loser received a consolation prize for each key she had and was guaranteed at least one prize.

Bonus round

The champion selected one key for each day she had been on the show. If the player won the main game by collecting all seven keys, she received an additional key. The keys were tried in the car in alphabetical order based on the celebrities' names. If any of the keys selected by the contestant started the car, she won it and retired as undefeated champion. If not, she won a consolation prize, ostensibly held inside the car's trunk, and returned on the next show.

Broadcast history

The show aired at Noon Eastern Time and, like many game shows in this time slot, it suffered from low affiliate clearances, as many larger markets had turned to Noon news broadcasts by 1983. The show lasted just thirteen weeks and was replaced in its time slot by The New Battlestars, which met the same fate as Just Men! The series aired opposite The Young & The Restless on CBS (except in New York & Los Angeles, where it was Tattletales), while on ABC, it ran opposite Family Feud.
