Nikki Bella has been announced as the host for a new game show that will air on USA. The unique concept will see contestants taking part in various bar-related challenges. The series is being developed by Blake Shelton and Carson Daly and will be shot at Blake’s Nashville bar, Ole Red.
The show will see Blake Shelton leading the house band with musical performances. Carson Daly will serve as the “bartender.” The action will be led by Nikki Bella, who is best known as a WWE Hall of Famer.
Deadline reports that the show will feature celebrity contestants. Each will play a set of five games and the prize will go to a viral internet star who will have a chance to redeem themselves. It should be a fun watch for game show fans who love to drink.
“In each episode, two celebrities will play a unique set of five games in the bar to win a much-needed prize for a viral Internet sensation each has chosen to support. Plucked from obscurity following their epic misadventures on the Internet, these now-infamous stars find themselves at Ole Red hoping to be redeemed.
The competition heats up when the losing rival of each round has a chance to even the score by spinning the Wheel of Redemption, a risky move with hilarious consequences. Shelton and Daly will offer words of encouragement – and heckling, of course – to their celebrity friends. On occasion, they might even step in to show off their skills and play a game or two. Ultimately, the winning team takes home a prize while the losing celebrity must accept the shame of defeat. But this is Barmageddon – even if they did not win, at least they had a ton of fun trying.”
The series combines celebrities, drinking, and several favorite bar games into one crazy package. Nikki Bella is hoping the show catches on after the success of her “Total Divas” and “Total Bellas” reality shows. Time will tell if Barmageddon is a hit.
