Syfy's newest reality competition, the international hit, Total Blackout
, starts tonight. Total Blackout
is a half-hour game show where contestants perform challenges in complete darkness. Using all their senses but sight, contestants must complete tasks. Some may be physical challenges, where others are about identifying things with their other senses. People don't realize how scary the unknown can be in the dark, or for the audience, how funny.
The series is hosted by Jaleel White (Family Matters
; Dancing with the Stars
), and premieres tonight on Syfy.
Before reading the interview, you can watch a sample of the show below, that took place at the Syfy Digital Press Tour in Orlando in October.
