What do you get when you cross some of your favorite celebrities, traditional bar games played in non-traditional ways, and some time spent at Ole Red? USA Network’s newest game show, “Barmageddon.”
The reality TV game show, hosted by WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella and produced by Carson Daly and Blake Shelton, was filmed at Nashville’s Ole Red and airs on Mondays beginning Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. CT.
What to expect
Two celebrities will face off in a set of five over-the-top and larger-than-life bar games (think: beer pong, axe throwing, and cornhole) to win redemption for viral video sensations. The loser of each round has a chance to even the score by spinning the “Wheel of Redemption” — a choice that comes with risky rewards. Bonus: What’s a show filmed on Broadway without live music?
