Repo Games trailer – Click above to watch the video after the jump

We've never had a car repossessed, but we imagine it's a painful ordeal. That doesn't mean that it won't make a great game show, however, as the producers of Jersey Shore have created Repo Games. The premise is simple; real repo guys are taking real cars, but with a twist. If a vehicle owner/contestant answers three out of five questions correctly, the vehicle isn't towed, and the winner gets to keep the vehicle outright.

Tru TV, which will air the show, says that people from all walks of life sometimes have trouble making their car payments. Still, we're guessing that many of the show's contestants will be hard-luck types. Hit the jump to watch the three-minute promo video. Many of the questions from the clip appear to be absurdly simple, though the answers aren't always that easy to come by.

      These repo show are absolutely fake. I was watching one on Tru TV and couldn't believe they were passing it off as real. Over the top behavioring in every single case that would get a regular repo man shot.

      Is it wrong that part of me is only surprised it took a company this long to produce a show like this? Its scripted just like the other Repo shows out there.

      I have a really good premise for a reality show: give me a Nissan GT-R/Viper ACR/Boss 302 with gas and insurance and let me act a fool with it. I can get in all sorts of hijinks and capture America's heart! I'll be the post-Sheen celebrity trainwreck, and spike will get exclusive coverage of my descent into insanity, which is why they'll pay the bills. C'mon Spike, help me start winning.

      If this is real, the reason the cars are being repossessed is for nonpayment. There are a lot of people that run into this situation due to unforeseen circumstances and it would be great to see someone like that helped out. I'm thinking, though, the people that will be on this show are having their cars repossessed because they cannot handle money. Giving them a free car will only make it worse because they'll think they can buy whatever and somehow someone will give it to them for free.

      "From the producers of Jersey Shore" tells you all you need to know about this show. Having competitions to see if someone who is having their car repo'd can keep it? These producers would torture homeless people on TV if they thought it would give them good ratings. Shameful.

        So every person who gets their vehicle repossessed has such a thing happen because of circumstances completely beyond their control? Interesting world you live in.

        Production cost for Tv shows is hundred's of thousands of dollars. You really want us to believe that they can't pay the bank loan on those cars? lol. And no, they don't pitch shows to banks who loan money for cars. Fail dude.
