In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Ben Bailey shared a number of real stories from Cash Cab over the years.

Some people choose not to get into the Cash Cab. “For different reasons, some people said they were in the Witness Protection Program. One woman said she works for the CIA and couldn’t be on TV.”

People have definitely missed the first three questions. Ben said he doesn’t wish for that to happen to people but he “always hopes for those when it’s our last drive before lunch. If this guy gets one, two, three, we’re gonna get an extra half hour of lunch.”

Watch Ben Bailey talk all about the new version of the show.

The new Cash Cab airs on Discovery on Mondays at 10 pm EST.
