Josh Duhamel is drawing upon his own personal past times in his latest CBS TV show. Buddy Games kicked off on Thursday, September 14 and the show was inspired by Josh’s very own ‘Buddy Games’ that he’d play with his childhood friends. Let’s get to know the Buddy Games cast competing for a cash prize.
Six teams of friends are given the opportunity of a lifetime to “feel like kids again” and play the Buddy Games with their besties. Some of the cast members are used to looking out for one another as they work together in the police force and others have been best friends for decades. The tightness of the teams’ friendships is clearly vital as host Josh says “…only the best of friends will make it to the end.”
