Game show to pay off student loans

Forget wanting to be a millionaire. A new game show aims to help recent college graduates break even by paying off some or all of the winner’s student loan debt. The Washington Post reports that truTV’s ‘Paid Off’ looks like a traditional game show, but all contestants have outstanding student loans. The network will pay up to 100 percent of the winner’s student loan debt depending on how he or she performs during a speed round. The outstanding balances of student loans in the U.S. rose more than 60% over the last decade, according to the Post. The average student has $37,000 of student loan debt.
