A quiz show in a cab?

Steve says he saw this show on a tv in a restaurant in Henderson. People get in a cab and they don't know it, but they're on a quiz show. They have to answer super easy questions for money as they get where they're going. The part that troubled my darling was that many of these people didn't know the answers to the questions.

Was he high, or is this a real show?

Yes!! I have seen this show twice now. I believe it is on Discovery and it is called Cash Cab. The people get in and say where they are going. From the time they get in to the time they get there they answer questions and win money ranging from $50-$100 for each right answer. They have three strikes for incorrect answers. If they answer three wrong they get kicked out. At the end they have a cjance to answer one question for double or nothing. Also along the route they have life lines...like ask a stranger or phone a friend.
The cab has lightes on the roof. It is actually quite clever and fun.

This sounds hysterical! Just the thought of talking to people who get into cabs.....all the different kinds of people and where they are going!
