Life lines in KBC 6

But if the contestant is not sure of any answer, he can choose life lines so that it would be easy for him to get the correct answer for a question in case he is not sure of any options. Four different types of life lines are given to the participant of KBC 6. Each of the life lines of KBC 6 has to be used only once. Here is a list of life lines used in Kaun Banega Crorepati game show.

Life Lines used in KBC 6 game show.
A participant who enters the Hot Seat of KBC 6 can use a life line when he / she is not decided which answer is correct. But a life line in KBC can be used only once. Currently there are four life lines in KBC. Let us see what are these life lines in KBC and how they can be used.

  • Phone a Friend: If the contestant wants to use this life line in KBC 6, then he is allowed to call any of his pre-arranged friends. The friends have to give their phone numbers in advance. If the contestant does not know the answer to a particular question, he can call any of these friends. The host ( Amitabh Bachchan) dials the friend’s number and talks to him and introduces the friend to the viewers. Once the introduction is over, the host hands over the call to the contestant. 30 seconds of time is given to the contestant to talk to his friend and get the correct answer.
  • Ask an Expert: The contestant can talk face to face with an expert via live audio and video connection and ask the expert for the correct answer. The expert can be any one from a celebrity for the previous KBC contests. There is no time limit for the “Ask an Expert” and it is available throughout the game. The contestant and the expert are allowed to discuss about the question.
  • Double Dip: This is another useful life line in KBC which allows the contestant to make two guesses for the correct answer to a question. This life line was made available in the 4th season of KBC only after the contestant correctly answers the seventh question. Previous to 7th question, it was not available.
    But in 5th season ( KBC 5 ) all the four life lines were available from the beginning of the game show. If the contestant does not make a correct guess for the correct answer during the double dip, it is a loss for him and the contestant’s winnings dropping back down to the last milestone achieved. Once a player has chosen to use this life line, he / she must answer the question, and he/she cannot walk away or use any further lifelines on that question.
  • Audience Poll : If the contestant uses this life line, the host repeats the question to the audience. 10 seconds of time is given to the audience to answer the question. The audience will use the touch pads to select the correct answer. Once the audience chosen their choices, the results are displayed to the contestant as percentages in bar-graph format and also shown in his monitor. Now the contestant has to guess his correct answer based on the answers given by audience.

    These are the four life lines which were used during KBC 5. And it is expected that these four life lines will be used in KBC 6 also.
