The Better Sex was a game show airing on ABC daytime. It pitted five men and five women trying to outguess each other on questions about the opposite sex.

A question is posed to a team, and each member gives an answer. Two members of the other team try to predict if he/she is right or bluffing. The opposing team loses two members if they predict wrong; the answering team loses two members if the predicting team is correct. Play continues until the men or women lose all five players.

The winning team faces thirty members of the studio audience, each of the opposite sex of the team. The object is to outbluff all thirty members using six questions for a $5000 prize. Any remaining audience members split $500.
