Wrestling pro Chris Jericho to host ABC's 'Downfall'
Jericho is well known to wresting fans, having been in the ring since the 1990s and having won the WWE world championship six times. Starting June 22 on ABC, Jericho will host ABC's latest reality contest.
In the six-episode series, contestants try to answer questions while on the roof a a Los Angeles high-rise building. Meanwhile "the largest conveyor belt ever seen on TV" will send potential winnings (cash and prizes), the player's personal possessions and even friends and family over the side of the building.
Jericho, who’s repped by APA and manager Barry Bloom, will ask players questions and tempt them various options throughout the game. He also makes his big-screen debut this summer in "MacGruber."
ABC had the most recent breakout summer reality series with "Wipeout" two ago and is looking to the FremantleMedia North America-produced "Downfall" to boost its summer. "Downfall" will get a lead-in from "Wipeout" on Tuesday nights when it debuts next month.
