The new season of 'Hustler' returns with five new competitors, joining host Craig Ferguson on this mind-bending show. 'Hustler' is part of ABC's already extensive line-up of game shows and while one 'hustler' may know the answers already, a win is by no means guaranteed.

Each episode of 'The Hustler' follows five contestants as they collaborate to answer a series of trivia questions worth $10,000 each, with the goal of building a collective prize pot that increases with each correct answer. One of the five contestants, the Hustler, already knows the answers but must keep their identity a secret in order to have a shot at winning the grand prize. Throughout each episode, two contestants are anonymously eliminated by the Hustler, leaving three remaining contestants - the Hustler and two others, who must collectively decide who they think the Hustler is. If they are right, they share the prize pot that could be worth over $100,000. If the two contestants are wrong, the Hustler goes home with the full cash reward.

The trailer of 'The Hustler' has Craig Ferguson reading out the definition of a hustler, saying that a hustler is one who obtains money by fraud or deceit, but on the show, they just call them contestants. With one of the contestants labeling someone a sociopath in the trailer, it seems that there are plenty of mind games in store.
