Today’s season premiere episode will feature the award-winning Blue Man Group in a challenge that includes a contestant with the unique synesthetic ability to “see” music. Blue Man Group plays a classic tune matched with corresponding colors, while the contestant watches, but cannot hear the music. After viewing the Blue Man Group performance, the contestant must try to recreate the song based only on the colors they saw.
Hosted by actor Kal Penn, “SUPERHUMAN” will test the abilities of ordinary people to use their extraordinary skills to win a $50,000 grand prize. In each episode, five contestants who possess a distinct, nearly super-human ability in fields such as memory, hearing, taste, touch, smell, sight and more are challenged to push their skills to the limit, yet only one will take home the title of SUPERHUMAN and the $50,000 grand prize.
