The Discovery Channel Is Bringing Back Cash Cab, but With a Celebrity Twist

Wait, what?

You might wanna hold off on that reboot fatigue. The Discovery Channel is bringing back fan favorite Cash Cab and giving it a neat little twist. The NYC-based series centered on host Ben Bailey picking up unsuspecting strangers in a taxi and quizzing them on a variety of topics for cash as he whizzed through traffic. If contestants were stumped on an question, they could reach out to a friend via phone or text, or ask a stranger on the street.

When the show returns, it’s expected to follow a similar format. However, instead of Bailey behind the wheel, it will feature celebrities in comedy, film and TV. No word yet on who will be participating, but I hope they have an updated driver’s license. This sounds like it could either be really fun or absolutely horrible, and I can’t wait.

Will you be watching when it returns?
