AUBREY O’DAY, BOB GUINEY, ERIN WAY AND NEIL GRAYSTON PLAY IN THE DARK FOR CHARITY

NEW YORK – June 10, 2013 – Syfy’s fan-favorite, extreme game show Total Blackout, hosted by Jaleel White (Family Matters, Dancing with the Stars), will conclude its Summer Season with a special celebrity episode, airing Tuesday, July 9 at 9:30PM (ET/PT).

 

Total Blackout moves to its new 9:30PM time slot beginning Tuesday, June 11, leading into Syfy’s nail-biting competition series Exit at 10PM (ET/PT).

 

In “Celebrity Blackout,” international music superstar Aubrey O’Day (Making the Band, Celebrity Apprentice) joins television host Bob Guiney (Showhouse Showdown, The Bachelor), and actors Erin Way (Alphas, Detroit 1-8-7) and Neil Grayston (Eureka, Wonderfalls) as they go head-to-head in pitch blackness playing Total Blackout for a  cause!  In a first for the series, all four contestants will participate in each of the show’s three challenges with an opportunity to win up to $15,000 for their individual charities.  Charities represented include Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (Guiney), Responsibility (O’Day), Lungevity (Way), and Doctors without Borders (Grayston).

 

Total Blackout is a half-hour, extreme game show in which contestants battle each other and their fears in a series of challenges played in complete darkness. There are no lights, no blindfolds and no-holds-barred as the players face their anxieties and unexpected surprises in a series of nerve-wracking games.

 

The international hit series is produced by FremantleMedia North America (American Idol, The X Factor) and was created by Henrik Nielsen (Can You Duet?, Danish versions of The X Factor, Got Talent and Pop Idol).  Nielsen and Scott St. John (Deal or No Deal, America’s Got Talent, The Choice) are executive producers.
