Hosted by acclaimed reporter, journalist, and former CNN correspondent Brooke Baldwin, The Trust: A Game of Greed brings together a group of strangers for a once-in-a-lifetime chance at a coveted $250,000 cash prize.
According to Netflix, “In this reality series, strangers compete to share a quarter of a million dollars. Will they split it evenly — or cut each other out to raise their take?” implying that the competition show has an aspect of betrayal.
As for how The Trust: A Game of Greed works, contestants are given the opportunity to anonymously vote each other out of “The Trust” each week — although it is optional, not mandatory — ultimately increasing their individual share of the prize pot. In addition to this, players gain access to “The Vault” each week as well, where they are given an offer that either benefits them individually, or benefits the group as a whole instead.
Based on their decisions, contestants can accidentally show their cards, ultimately creating distrust amongst the group. Yikes!
Aside from the lying, stealing, and cheating element of the soon-to-be hit series, contestants will get to know who their ten competitors really are throughout the The Trust: A Game of Greed, learning their intentions in a series of tests, ultimately determining who is a team player and out for themselves. Naturally — with a maximum of $250,000 on the line — the stakes are at an all time high!
