Repo Games is an American game show on Spike. The series debuted on April 26, 2011.[1]

Format[edit]

Hosts Josh Lewis and Tom DeTone are actual repo men. Their function is to pose a series of trivia questions to actual owners of vehicles in danger of being repossessed; failing that, they repossess the vehicle.

The game takes place in the driveway of the vehicle owner (or wherever the vehicle is parked). The vehicle is hooked up to a tow truck, and the owner is given a chance to win it back by answering five general-knowledge trivia questions. If the owner can answer three questions correctly, the vehicle is removed from the tow truck and the owner gets it back, with all delinquent payments and any outstanding loan balance paid off by the show. If not, the tow truck drives away with the vehicle. The first series of episodes were filmed in Phoenix, Arizona, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Dallas, Texas. Some 80 vehicle owners took part in the show.[2] The second series of episodes have included South Jersey and Indiana .
