We don’t know who the contestants will be in the second season, but we know that the host remains constant throughout the season. Joel McHale hosted season 1. He proved his mettle in Hollywood through his performances in Spy Kids: All the Time in the World, and Ted. The Soup was his big break, and it put his name on the map.

Card Sharks Season 2 Plot: What is it about?
In the beginning, two players compete against each other, and for one of them, the day could become the great payday of their life. Both the contestants take seven cards from the deck. The champion picks up five cards from the top of the deck, and the challenger picks up five from the bottom of the deck. A survey-based question decides who gets to initiate the game. The one who answers correctly gets the chance to look at the topmost card among his cards; he can decide whether to keep it or replace it. Then the player needs to guess if the next card in his deck is higher or lower than the previous card. The player can continue guessing until he/she gets one wrong. The disappointment arrives when one guess turns out to be incorrect, and the previously played cards are discarded. If someone gets lucky enough to guess every card correctly, he/she is given an amount of $10,000, which they can use in a special round known as Money Card. Some new things are added, and some things are changed every season, so let’s wait to see what’s new this time.
