Cash Cab returns tonight, December 4th, and host Ben Bailey recently spoke with TVInsider about the Discovery Channel series revival.
After five years off the air, the game show reboot will feature the return of original host Ben Bailey and several celebrity guests, including Matthew Perry, Brooke Shields, Scott Bakula, Gilbert Gottfried, Dave Foley, Jeff Garlin, and Susie Essman.
In the interview, Bailey revealed what’s difference about the Cash Cab revival:
The only thing that’s really different is that instead of a mobile shoutout, contestants get a social media shoutout where we go live on social media and people answer. The cab is pretty much the same, but the ceiling is a little different. They can do anything with the lights now, different patterns. We also have celebrities guests who ride with us. Matthew Perry is one … Brooke Shields, Jeff Garlin.”
Later, the host mentioned he’d like to take the Discovery Channel series to other cities and maybe overseas:
We could definitely do it in Chicago… in San Francisco, in L.A. We’d like to be able to do it Las Vegas. Honestly, I’d like to take it someplace where the weather is better because shooting this show in the winter is pretty hairy. International would be crazy for me, especially maybe driving on the other side of the road.”
The new season of Cash Cab premieres tonight, December 4th, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. on Discovery.
