ICE COLD CASH is a fun and fast-paced food-based trivia show that’ll whip up your brain and tenderize your funny bone. Hilarious host Joe Motiki rides his specially rigged ice cream bike, trawling for unsuspecting cold-treat-seekers. Little do they know that he has no ice cream and they’ve just wandered into a game show!
No one has ever actually made Joe feel like running away – that is until he meets mother-daughter, Deborah and Symone. Who knew Joe could run the 100 metres? Find out why Jerry quickly gets nicknamed Simon, Aaron and even Kanye. And husband-wife team, Dennis and Karen, shock everyone with a pure wild guess about Italian desserts.
As their winnings get bigger, BFFs Hailey and Sarah’s stress levels follow suit. They also shock us with their knowledge of explosives! Laura and Tracey whip the crowd into a frenzy with their shrieking energy and since Sheldon and Julia don’t drink bourbon, they’re forced to answer with a genuine wild guess.
Dale and Carrie are two hilarious friends who get culinary hints from algae and a much-loved children’s author. Mom-daughter team Maria and Rachela can thank a famous cartoon cat for one of their answers. And Stella and Nancy are two friends who dig wine, but what about wine regions? All this and you get to hear Joe try to pronounce bouillabaisse.
They’re brothers, but Jonathan and Michael exchange taunts, insults and at least one actual punch in their fight for trivia supremacy. Jeanine proves why the odd wild guess can be a lucrative strategy, while gambling enthusiast, Chi, shows how the experts play the odds, while discovering how important it is to read the instructions before you make mac and cheese.
Julianna used to work in a cheese store, but her partners, Darrin and Aislinn soon find out she’s more reliable for questions about crabs.

Jen and Liz learn a valuable lesson about how to prepare steak tartare. Zovidar and Rudy spend as much time arguing as they do answering. And Joe tries to cajole the shy but clever Vicky into doing a money dance. All this, plus you might be surprised at how poorly people act out a charade for chili dog.

Barb and Andrew are hilarious friends whose big task is to spell euchaly…er, ukalip…um, an Australian tree. And Dave is a smart cookie, but does he know the name of the sauce you put on lobster? All this and you get to see people act out the charade for “Chocolate Milkshake.”
Fernando and Molly plow through an impressive array of German, Japanese and French answers, but an obscure Spanish tomato-tree slows them down. Max and Melissa find out which vegetable is also an antibiotic. And Mike and Aaron try to guess what folks in America’s Deep South use to shut up noisy dogs. Also, Joe challenges passersby to identify Cockaleekie. Um, that sounds rude!!
Suzanne and Dale can’t seem to get over the fact that they’re actually on a TV game show, but have a startling volume of knowledge about coffee and ice cream.

Marla and Michael have an impressive degree of knowledge when it comes to giant gourds. And David and Aaron are two brothers who will make our Greek and Italian friends proud. Well, at least for a while. All this, plus a side-splitting game of What the Heck is This – Charades when folks try to act out “Devil’s Food Cake.”

Find out who goes all the way to win the top prize in this episode. Joanne is pretty confident with her answers, but daughter Cara can’t stop screaming, “Wait!!” Mike seems to think that pounding his forehead with his fists will help the right answers pop out and Linda and Vanessa don’t waste any time popping out their own answers – but are they too fast?
What do you get when you mix French Canadian and British answers? Answer: Nathalie, Nicky and Funny. Ella and Kim are keenish, but do they know what neenish refers to? And Lauren and Stewart do the Meat Man Dance all the way to the final question. Plus: what to do with a giant utensil that looks like a pencil sharpener.
Geri and Sunny breeze through a whack of questions, but identifying the world’s second most popular spice is harder than it seems.

And David and Mike do their best to prove that buff, male model dudes ain’t dumb.
Adam and Shannon are fun and bright but things get a little tough when Joe starts asking them about ingredients in obscure drinks.
