A remake of the popular eponymous UK show, CBS’ ‘Lingo’ is a reality competition TV series that pits teams of two (parent and child, grandparent and grandchild, partners, friends, and so on) with a perfect balance of abilities and personalities to compete in a word-based game. Every round starts with the computer providing each team with the first letter of each word, and the contestants have to guess the correct word by guessing every letter while they are timed.
Thus, every team must work together and use their brains as sharply as possible to solve the puzzles and go home with a huge cash prize in their bag. The familiar format of the show is matched by the familiar face of the charming RuPaul Charles as the show’s host. Besides, since ‘Lingo’ is taped indoors, most of you might be scratching your head regarding its actual filming site. In that case, allow us to provide you with all the details about the same!
