Ellen's Game of Games

Ellen DeGeneres serves as host and executive producer of this hour-long comedy game show, which includes supersized versions of the most popular and action-packed games from her talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Contestants, who are pulled right from the audience, will have to manoeuvre massive obstacles, answer questions under crushing time pressure and face gigantic plunges into the unknown - all in a quest to win a big cash prize.

Every episode will feature Ellen' one-of-a-kind comedy and irrepressible personality, along with a unique roster of games, including Blindfolded Musical Chairs, Dizzy Dash and Scary Go Round.

At the start, contestants play games over four rounds. The winner of each round advances to play Know or Go.

The person who wins advances to the final round to play an epic game of Hot Hands, where he or she will have to guess as many answers as he or she can in a designated amount of time.

I still miss the old Ellen, the Ellen from before her talk show when she would say whatever she wanted without feeling censored.

I'm convinced this is what happened to her... that she started feeling she had to watch what she says when she got her talk show, especially after she came out.

She still has times of being daring but it's different from before.
