Syfy’s scariest maze in the dark “Total Blackout” returns on January 15 to play mind tricks on more contestants expecting the worse. In a phone interview, Hollywood Junket conducted with host Jaleel White late last year, he gave us some hints of new surprises this season.
No strategy to this game:
White said, “The contestants get smarter and the producers get smarter. Obviously theses contestants have seen the fist season of the show and sometimes they think they can outsmart us and it’s our job to stay one step ahead of them. For example last year when we had a couples show, we specified that both individuals in the couple had to participate in the challenge. We had a couple last year that got a little smart” White said that one person was more scared than the other. So one did the challenge while the scared one held their hand. “So we knocked that out this year and we’re keeping them honest,” he said.
Let’s guess the weight, let’s guess the height…
“There’s some really good maze stuff that we have with mouse traps this year. We have some really interesting food challenges” White said where contestants will have to guess the inside fillings of donuts. White didn’t mention what was inside of these donuts! “The show is growing. I didn’t really think that we’d be able to evolve as much as we have,” White said.
