The Hustler is back on ABC for season 2. The premiere episode airs tonight, and will feature a whole new set of contestants, clues, and of course, a new “hustler.” There are 5 new competitors, and they will be joined by returning host Craig Ferguson. Get details on the premiere, plus see some photos below.
Details on The Hustler Season 2 Premiere
The season 2 premiere is appropriately titled “The Most Diabolical Game on Television.” According to ABC’s official press release, ” in this mind-bending and enigmatic game show, the famed television series The Sopranos and mega superstar Lady Gaga are clues to discovering The Hustler.” Like we mentioned earlier, there are five new participants this season. They are: Sean Russell, Syd Crouch, Cody Vest, Hanna Jungbauer, and Craig Leidelmeijer.
If you watched the show’s first season, then you already know how this game show differs from the traditional mold. One person is “the hustler” aka: they already know all the answers. In order to win the prize, they must keep their identity a secret. As a couple contestants are eliminated, the remaining trio must try to figure out who the hustler is. If they are correct, they could share the prize. If they are wrong, the hustler walks away with the money.
Take a look at the season 2 promo below, and see if you’re up for the challenge of figuring out who the hustler is!
It’s not all fun and games though, there’s quite a bit of trickery that goes on during this show. People will try to fool each other, with trick questions and sneaky moves to try and get ahead. Don’t believe us? Check out this preview below to get a sense of what the season 2 premiere looks like:
The stakes are high as the contestants answer questions, because the money that could be won skyrockets. Craig’s tweet showcasing another sneak peek of tonight’s episode includes one of the participants claiming that the other “is like, a sociopath.” Course, as Craig said: “Around here, we just call them contestants.”
