Continuing their foray into the video game streaming market, Red Bull has today launched the first episode of their new gaming trivia show – Red Bull Wrap Up. Hosted by Stephanie ‘Hex” Bendixsen, former host of ABC’s long-running Good Game television show, the show invites players to test their knowledge “against some of the biggest names in Australian gaming as they go head-to-head to determine who has the best (or hilariously worst) video game know-how”.
Each episode is approximately 30 minutes in length, and will see two teams battle it out for the bragging rights of being “Wrap Up Champions”.
Episode 1 features comedian, actor, and singer Jordan Raskopoulos, whose claims to fame include being one-third of the comedy musical trio Axis of Awesome, being a star jammer for the Sydney Roller Derby League and playing Warhammer 40,000 since the age of 12. Jordan was paired with professional esports commentator Geordie ‘Mac’ McAleer – THE Moustache of esports.
On the other team was former Channel V star and Chief of Banter Danny Clayton, who, along with his trademark larrikin charm and wealth of media experience, pitches as bringing a “newcomer perspective to gaming”. Danny joined forces with journalist, presenter and self-confessed “musical theatre tragic” Stephanie Panecasio, who works across tech, culture, science and games, frequently writing about how society responds to subcultures and internet phenomena.
Episode 1 can be streamed below, with the second episode scheduled to air on 16 February 2022. Additional episodes will stream throughout 2022.
