What is The Hustler?
The Hustler breaks the game show mold by featuring one player who secretly already knows the answers.
As explained on ABC’s website, “Each episode follows five contestants as they collaborate to answer a series of trivia questions, with the goal of building a collective prize pot that increases with each correct answer.
“But one of the five contestants, the ‘hustler,’ already knows the answers but must keep everything a secret to have a shot at winning the grand prize.”
ABC continues: “Two contestants are anonymously eliminated by the hustler, leaving three remaining contestants who must collectively decide who they think the hustler is.

“If they are right, they share the prize. But if the two contestants are wrong, the hustler wins it all.”
What is an industrial vegan?
There is no exact definition for term industrial vegan.
On the other hand, The Vegan Society defines veganism as a way of living that excludes “all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals, food, clothing or any other purpose.”
Vegans choose not to support animal exploitation in any form and so avoid visiting zoos or aquariums, or taking part in dog or horse racing.
Some dietary types of veganism see people focus on particular types of food.
For example, a raw vegan diet mostly consists of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and grains.
