On Tuesday (July 2), Bravo confirmed that Cash Cab is back, and yes, with host Ben Bailey in the driver's seat. Oh, and by the way, it's coming to Bravo later this year. The iconic trivia series will shoot this summer in New York City — with a Bravo twist, obviously.
In the reboot, the stakes are higher, the car will be upgraded, and the questions will include more trivia for lovers of pop culture. Each episode will feature three games, and much like the original series, it will all start the second the contestant enters the Cash Cab. If the passenger can answer enough questions correctly before making it to their destination, they’ll win the big money. But, three wrong answers and that's it, they’re asked to leave the Cash Cab and wind up back on the mean streets of the Big Apple.
Let's break it down even further, shall we? Along the way they’ll get two shout-outs — one on social media and the other via a street shout out — where the contestant can pull over and ask a stranger for help. Passengers who successfully make it to their destination can simply walk away with their money or they can play a double or nothing video bonus round, either going home incredibly happy or with nothing at all, and as always funnyman Ben is right there leading them on their wild ride through New York City.
