Hosted by Jaleel White (Family Matters), Total Blackout is a half-hour extreme game show in which contestants battle each other and their fears in a series of challenges, 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.
Four competitors try to put their fears and phobias aside as they participate in a series of mind twisting challenges, all without their sense of sight in the pitch black. In this premiere episode, contestants must use their hands, tongues, and noses to successfully identify a variety of truly innocent and surprising items in total darkness. The player with the most refined palate will be the one to touch, taste and sniff their way to $5,000.
In this special episode, couples will compete through three challenges in the pitch black for a winner-take-all cash prize.
Four competitors put their will to the test, as they are forced to strip down to a single sense in each game of this episode while also competing in the pitch black. First, players must identify items using only their hands to touch, then sniff out and identify cringe-worthy items with only their nose. The last two remaining must compete in a race against time while trying not to wake up a deceivingly scary critter!
Four competitors will be put through the ringer in three challenges testing very different skills in the pitch black darkness, including: identifying and arranging real-life creatures according to the food chain, identifying some truly pungent aromas from very unusual places, and searching for a specific item in a very confined space. The winner will conquer all of these challenges and come out from the dark $5,000 richer.
Four competitors are about to come face to face with the pitch black, as they lick, limbo and lather their way closer to winning the $5,000 grand prize. First, they'll need to identify items using only their mouth to taste, then literally dance their way around a dangerously electrifying rhythm. The finalists will overcome their fears and bathe in a tub with things that just might make their skin crawl.
In another special team's edition episode, contestants will battle one another in spine-chilling games that involve coffins, pitfalls, and poison.
In absolute darkness, surviving through three challenges, our contestants must serve dinner to carnivorous creatures, fondle things of all shapes and sizes, and put to rest their harrowing arachnophobia.
In this episode, four daring contestants must overcome their shared fear of the dark and compete in a series of challenges in the pitch black to win the $5,000 cash prize. Players will need to navigate the dark and avoid an obstruction that's sure to be stimulating, identify bizarre items in a bath, and risk their limbs reaching into some dangerous (and not so dangerous) tanks.
