The ‘Game Of Talents’ Premiere Is Full Of Surprises [VIDEO]
A new talent show called Game of Talents premiered Wednesday on FOX. The show, hosted by Wayne Brady, features several performers whose talents are a mystery to the contestants.
Tonight’s teams were critical care physicians Dr. John and Dr. Jamie, versus in-laws Mikel and Monica. They were tasked with guessing the talents of various guests.
They were given several talents to choose from, but only six out of seven were actual talents featured during the show. The teams were competing for a shot at $200,000.

This performer said he enjoys baking and fantasy football. Wayne shared an image of a candy store that included clues about Nick, including “jaw destroyers.”
Because of this, Mikel and Monica guessed that Nick was a bonebreaker. Nick then showed off his talent, which was jump-roping. Nick was joined by his wife and fellow jump roper Kaylee. Since Mikel and Monica were wrong, Dr. John and Dr. Jamie got their $10,000.
This performer said she loved sewing and shopping. The clue for her talent was a clip from a fake show called “Trivia Masters.” Dr. John and Dr. Jamie figured out that it was pointing to Christianity.
Because of this, they guessed that Sonya was a gospel singer. They were correct, as Sonia performed “Glory” by John Legend and Common, along with a choir. This added $10,000 to the team’s total, bringing them to $20,000.
This performer said she was raised in the U.S. Virgin Islands and loves Star Wars. The clue package included descriptions of various criminals.
Mikel and Monica guessed that Jaden was a 3D dancer. However, she turned out to be a bonebreaker. Because of this, Dr. John and Dr. Jamie got their $15,000, putting their total at $35,000.
This performer said he was originally from Mexico and loved playing soccer. The clues package included foods named after celebrities, including tater tots named after Joseph Gordon Levitt.
Dr. John and Dr. Jamie guessed that Fernando was a fire thrower. However, they were incorrect, as Fernando is actually a levitator — as in Levitt + tator. He made Wayne Brady float. Mikel and Monica got the $15,000.
This performer said she loves listening to audiobooks. The clue package was a fake ad for a law firm. Mikel and Monica locked in fire thrower as their guess.
They were correct, as Sam turned out to be a fire thrower. Because of this, Mikel and Monica got $60,000 added to their total, and Dr. John and Dr. Jamie were eliminated.
In the final round, Mikel and Monica had the chance to double their $75,000 total, potentially winning $150,000. The only two talents left were 3D dancer and stand-up comedian.
Jason introduced himself by saying he had six kids with his wife. The clue package included a text exchange between two women. Mikel and Monica noted that they pointed to both talents.
They decided to play, guessing that Jason was a 3D dancer. They were correct, meaning they doubled their total to take home $150,000.
