Lucky Lyft Trivia Show, Hosted by Bob the Drag Queen

Starting today, Lyft is dropping the first episode of Lucky Lyft - a trivia game show in a Lyft hosted by the hilarious Bob The Drag Queen, world-renowned drag icon, comedienne, television star, Billboard-charting musician & winner of the eighth season of RuPaul's Drag Race.

In the eight-episode series, Bob surprises unsuspecting riders with a chance to win real money (up to $1,000) during Spring 2023 in Los Angeles. Contestants must work together to answer five trivia questions, each worth one star and $100. The stakes are raised in the "Risk Your Rating" bonus round, where the contestants can double their winnings or risk having them slashed in half. The 7-10 minute episodes will air on Lyft's YouTube channel with a new one dropping every other week.

The diverse array of contestants drive the show, keeping each episode fresh. Roommates, couples and even a grandfather and grandson get their smarts on, pressing the hot pink buzzer to get ★★★★★ stars for each trivia question and a chance to win.

Backseat confetti, flying dollar bills, and Bob's undeniably bright personality accompany us through trivia questions in genres ranging from 'Music' to 'Grammar' to the Lyft-themed 'Think Pink.' The result? Highly snackable episodes, with runtimes under 10 minutes.

Bob the Drag Queen is ready to hit the road in the custom Lucky Lyft vehicle.

"As much time as I spend on social media I should be a trivia expert by now," said Bob about her role as host on the show. "You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll cheer for people. . . so a typical Lyft ride for me!"

Check out the first episode here. Full episodes will be released on Lyft's YouTube channel with a new episode dropping every other week. Additional content and trivia from the show will be featured across the brand's other social channels including TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram and offer viewers a way to engage at home.
