Santa Monica, CA (October 15, 2012) - MTV will premiere a new hidden camera game show, "Totally Clueless," on Monday, October 22 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT. The same day, the network will kick-off a special week of all-new, daily episodes of "Money From Strangers" at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT Monday through Friday. To warm the audience up, MTV will host a 24-hour ultimate prank marathon on Saturday, October 20 beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET/PT. Hosted by comedian Jeff Dye of "Money From Strangers," the marathon will feature back-to-back episodes of Rob Dyrdek's "Ridiculousness," "Money From Strangers" and "Pranked."

"Totally Clueless" is a hidden camera game show where a team of improvisers put unknowing contestants through a series of awkward and increasingly outrageous pranks. The sooner the random marks figure out they are on a TV show, the more money they win.

In each daily episode of "Totally Clueless," a team of stellar improv actors play a variety of memorable characters and take contestants on a surreal and hilarious hidden camera rollercoaster ride. As seemingly harmless encounters escalate and snowball into twisted and over the top scenarios, the potential cash prize decreases. This fall, it pays to have a clue.

For clips and cast information, visit the "Totally Clueless" show page at MTV.com. Additionally, fans can visit the "Totally Clueless" Facebook page here.

"Money From Strangers" tests how far people will go for a cash prize of $1,000. Comedian host Jeff Dye snares unwitting contestants off the street to perform interactive impromptu pranks on a variety of unsuspecting victims. Jeff, along with a rotating pair of comedians, uses a secret earpiece to communicate with contestants while watching all the action. If contestants can successfully complete the prank they win a $1,000 prize, and maybe some lost dignity. Click here for a sneak peak from the bonus episodes.
