LOS ANGELES » Carrie Ann Inaba is adding a game show to her TV dance card.
The "Dancing With the Stars" judge will host a new version of "1 vs. 100," scheduled to debut next month on the GSN channel.
"I never would have thought of myself as a game show host, but when I saw the show I fell in love with it," Inaba said yesterday, the first day of production.

(Inaba was born and raised in Honolulu and graduated from Punahou School in 1986.)
The show has gone high-tech with such elements as web cams, which Inaba said appeals to the "tech savvy" side of her.
"1 vs. 100" pits one player against a group of 100 people tagged "the Mob." The player’s task is to correctly answer a series of multiple-choice trivia question, while mob members do the same thing. At stake is a top prize of $50,000.
"1 vs. 100," which originally aired on NBC with host Bob Saget, is a change of pace for Inaba. The dancer-choreographer was a Fly Girl on "In Living Color," toured with Madonna and hosts red-carpet coverage for ceremonies that have included the Golden Globes and Academy Awards.
She’ll continue to work on ABC’s "Dancing With Stars" on Monday and Tuesday and then tape the game show on the other three weekdays.
Her new game show will air starting Nov. 15
