On the series premiere of Candy Crush, cast members from Survivor and Big Brother faced off to play the addictive game, but on a slightly larger scale. Hosted by Mario Lopez, the game show is “the largest interactive television experience ever,” with huge touchscreen game boards that both lie flat and tower vertically over the contestants. Throughout the show, teams competed in qualifying rounds. The winner of each round earned the advantage of choosing which of the king-size challenges they would like to play in the hopes of going home with $100,000.
Jeremy and Woo from Survivor: Second Chance initially took the lead. Da’Vonne and Paul from Big Brother quickly got bumped on a vertical wall challenge. Meanwhile, Joe and Kelley from Survivor advanced after swiping candies from a candy cart that rolled around on the ground. Tandem candy crushing on a vertical screen proved difficult and took Frankie and Caleb from Big Brother out of the running.
It ended up being an all-Survivor final round. Joe had an interesting method to see the whole board by kicking off the wall and swinging back toward it. In the end, Joe’s technique paid off, and he and Kelley walked away with the prize of $100,000.
Candy Crush airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on CBS.
