Don’t miss your chance to win $25,000 without ever leaving your couch!
ABC2’s new game show “Let’s Ask America”, which gives viewers a chance to have fun and win money by participating from their own homes, is looking for Baltimore area contestants!
The contestant search will be held at the ABC2 booth, at the Harford County Farm Fair, Friday July 27 th from 3pm-8pm.
Participants will also get a chance to meet the host, Kevin Pereira, and even a chance to be in ABC2’s next “Let’s Ask America” promo.
This exciting new game show is extremely unique. Four contestants will conduct a video chat from their homes on each episode, answering questions that Americans were also asked before the show.
Based on their prediction skills, and maybe a little bit of luck, contestants will earn up to $25,000 cash for answering correctly.
Intense elimination rounds force contestants to find random objects around their home and other surprises that, thanks to viewers playing from home via Skype, have never been possible in a game show before. The half-hour show will air weekdays at 7:30 p.m. on ABC2 beginning September 17th.
“Let’s Ask America” was developed by Jeff Apploff (“Don’t Forget The Lyrics,” “Take Me Out”), Todd Stevens (“Friends,” “Mike & Molly”) and the late Jim Paratore. Apploff, Stevens and Jack Martin (“Deal Or No Deal,” “Take Me Out”) will executive produce.
“Let’s Ask America” is just one part of the exciting new programming coming to ABC2 in September. Katie Couric’s new talk show, “Katie” premieres on Monday Sept. 10 th at 4pm, while new magazine style show “The List” premieres on the same day as “Let’s Ask America,” September 17 th, just before it at 7pm.
