HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/6/14 – “My goal is to have my own star right by my grandfather’s so he can look down and say, ‘What the heck is an emoji?’” says Emogenius host Hunter March.
In Emogenius two pairs of contestants participate on a face off to put their emoji-solving skills to the test for a chance to win the big prize: $10,000. On the first round, they will have to solve a series of pop culture inspired emoji messages. The second round will get them to send strings of emojis to their partner, hoping that they can understand what they are saying. Only one team will remain on the final round, when they will have to guess and send rapid emoji messages for a chance to take the prize home.
Viewers at home will also have a chance to further test their emoji-solving skills with the online EMOGENIUS game at GSNTV.com, launching with the show’s premiere.
Hosted by 26-year-old Hunter March, the youngest non-kids game show host in TV history. His grandfather Hal March hosted the hit TV game show The $64,000 Question from 1955 to 1958 and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The show is produced by Game Show Enterprises, LLC for GSN. Executive producers are Craig Brooks and Larry Barron (Idiotest).
