CBS wants to upgrade your mobile obsession
Candy Crush is getting an upgrade.
CBS has adapted the addictive mobile game into a new live-action competition series — and it’s a little more challenging than swiping on your phone screen.
Teams of two must scale enormous, interactive game boards to match candies, win points and defeat obstacles, all in the hope of taking home a $100,000 prize.
Mario Lopez hosts the contest, which kicks off Sunday, July 9 at 9 p.m. with contestants from CBS’ other reality shows competing in the premiere: Survivor‘s Kelley Wentworth, Joe Anglim, Woo Hwang and Jeremy Collins, and Big Brother‘s Paul Abrahamian, Da’Vonne Rogers, Frankie Grande and Caleb Reynolds.
