Transcript for Host of trivia game 'HQ' dishes on the hot new app
We are back now with a hot new trivia app taking over phones giving away real cash, have you heard about it called hq. It is live and it's already look like a game changer. The host of the show Scott rogwosky is here now. Explain how this works. It's very simple. Hq trivia is a live daily game show on your phone. We broadcast 9:00 P.M. Eastern time, every weekday 3:00 P.M. Eastern time and I ask 12 questions what is the chemical formula of water, h2o or the official language of surinov. Dutch. If you get it right you move on. If you make it to the end, you win the cash prize. A record breaking game 240,000, hq-ties for an $,000 jackpot and 44 winners split the prize. It has to be at 3 or 9:00 P.M. So many are dropping everything to play the game. What's making this so appealing to everybody. I think the fact it is live. There is this fomo. People want to play the game. You have to be in it to win it. 3:00 P.M. Or 9:00 P.M. Eastern. If you're not in the game you can't win the upon and offices are stopping down to play every day. Classrooms -- there is a class in Tennessee, a math class that stops its class to play the game. I don't know if it's the best use of public school time but you're learning fractions. Shared experience. It's a shared experience. Community -- we're seeing people sending videos and photos of them winning. The jubilation, groups of people huddled around. You got to Q -- you won. Want him to quiz us. We'll start easy. Okay. How many years are in a millennium? Ten years, 100 years or 1,000 years? I say a thousand years. I'm with her. You're just going to say whatever robin says, yes, millennium, 1,000 years, had y2k. How much did we win? You have to answer them all. Go to the second one. We're on a roll. What is the full first name of actor Will Smith, is it William, Wilfred or Willard. Willard. You got that one? I'm going with -- Michael's confident. If you need a lift who is the kid in the drop, who else Willard Smith. You are correct, sir. Bam. We're a team. Between of two of you, you win the money. More brains the better. We ran out of time to get all 126789 I think we were on a roll. Great idea. What is the time again. 3:00 P.M. Eastern time every day weekday, 9:00 P.M. Every day, seven days a week.
