If Caroline Rhea or Whoopi Goldberg never particularly did it for you in a game show sense, MTV2 has gone ahead and turned the familiar “Hollywood Squares” concept on its head. “Hip Hop Squares” will take all of the uncomfortable fun of its predecessor and infuse it with music artists, comedians and even a mob wife as trivia advisers. OH, THE MAYHEM AND HIJINKS TO COME!
Money-hungry competitors will consult Nick Cannon, Vinny Guadagnino of “Jersey Shore,” Biz Markie and Drita D’Avanzo, among other celebs, for answers to all types of questions that could earn them some serious cash. Everything from Mariah Carey’s sales history (better be nice…) to female anatomy will be addressed via Q&A, and three Xs or Os in a row crowns a lucky winner! But whether the contestants go home with loads of dough or completely short-changed, the trailer below makes it clear each episode will see the finest party Brooklyn can offer.
+ Get a glimpse of the game, and make sure to tune in Tuesday, May 22 at 11/10c on MTV2 to catch the rowdy Tic-Tac-Toe come to life!
