About Total Blackout
An American Sci-Fi game show that challenges contestants to complete tasks in darkness
07:30 PM – 08:00 PM
Total Blackout is a half-hour extreme competition game show where one’s courage is put to the test.
Hosted by Jaleel White (Urkel from Family Matters), contestants battle each other and their fears in a series of challenges, taking place in complete darkness confronting their own worst enemy – themselves.
However, there is a twist – all the challenges are played in complete darkness; no lights, no blindfolds and no-holds barred as the players face their fears and unexpected surprises in a series of nerve-wracking games.
The contestants will see nothing but the audience will see everything. Here’s where the imagination can be one’s nastiest enemy. Through Jaleel’s guidance, contestants will have to heighten their other senses of hearing, smell and touch as they try to identify objects, which may include creepy crawlers of every kind, traverse through obstacles real or imagined, and beat their opponents’ performances in order not to be dropped through the stage and be eliminated from the game.
After three rounds, the contestant who can overcome their own fears and out perform their opponents, will stand victorious and win five thousand dollars.
Total Blackout is produced by FremantleMedia North America for Sci-Fi (USA).
