Hustled by the Hustler

#1 Post by silverscreenselect » Mon Jan 04, 2021 10:30 pm

Did anyone else watch The Hustler with Craig Ferguson tonight?

I kind of enjoyed it, but the contestants didn't appear to be trying to be as inconspicuous as possible. Instead, they seemed to be auditioning for an amateur theater production of an Agatha Christie play (they had the right set for that).

And I guessed the identity of the Hustler in about one minute.

The rules of the game for those who are interested:

1) Five contestants, one of whom is the Hustler and knows all the answers.
2) The host reveals ten clues about the Hustler, one at a time (sample - The Hustler has seen the movie The Fifth Element 80 times) and then asks a trivia question with four answers that's somehow related to the clue (What country produced The Fifth Element).
3) After each question, the contestants discuss and arrive at a consensus answer. If they are correct, they get $10,000.
4) After three questions, they take a secret vote. The Hustler eliminates one contestant, while the other ballots are discarded. After three more questions, they take a second vote to eliminate another contestant.
5) After all ten questions the three remaining contestants vote and show each other their votes. They then have two minutes to persuade the other contestants to change their votes. After one final vote, if both real contestants vote for the actual Hustler, they split the pot. But if one of them is wrong, then the Hustler gets the entire pot.

How was Ferguson as the host? I LOVED his late night show.

He's pretty good; he gets into the spirit of it. They're going for a vibe that's a cross between Clue (the movie, without the stupid jokes) and Knives Out.
