Step Up is a game where the contestant must "Step Up" to win big, with 4 prizes and a potential $3,000 cash bonus at stake.
- The contestant is shown four prizes and asked to select a prize they believe to be the cheapest, which serves as the "base prize"; its price is then revealed. The contestant is then asked to select a second prize which is more expensive than the base prize. If correct, they win both prizes and a $500 bonus. The contestant can quit with their winnings or risk them and choose another prize which is more expensive than the previous selections. If correct, they win all three prizes and an additional $1,000 bonus, for a total of $1,500 cash. The contestant can once again quit with their winnings or wager everything that the final prize is the most expensive of the four. If correct, they win all four prizes and an additional $1,500 bonus, for a grand total of $3,000 cash. If a price is revealed at any point that is lower than the previous price, the game ends and the contestant loses everything.
