'The Trust: A Game of Greed'

This new reality competition introduces an interesting twist, bringing together players who must compete and coexist to win a share of $250,000.

Players will also face off in a series of challenges and visits to The Vault, where several individual temptations clash with what's best for the group. It's all about figuring out who can fight their personal greed to figure out what's best for the entire group until a winner is named, making this a fierce competition.

This isn't just another heist for Cyrus but it's a race against time with some of the highest stakes he's ever faced.
