Break the Bank is a game show first on ABC daytime then in syndication. It is unrelated to the Break the Bank shows that came before in 1948 and followed in 1985.

Contestants select from twenty numbered squares, each square corresponding to two celebrities (to the left and top of the board). Questions are asked, and one celebrity gives a correct answer. To capture the square, the contestant must tell which celebrity is correct. To win the game, a contestant must connect three squares. Finding three squares with money bag icons breaks the bank.
