The Traitors' Alan Cumming Reveals The Hardest Thing About Hosting – Screen Rant

The Traitors' Alan Cumming Reveals The Hardest Thing About Hosting – Screen Rant

The Traitors’ Alan Cumming was the perfect choice to host the reality competition show. Now he reveals what was the hardest part of the job.
On The Traitors, Alan Cumming is brilliant as the host, but he reveals that one part of the job was especially hard for him. As the reality competition series' host, Alan's job was to oversee the competitors' missions and roundtable discussions, after which one person was banished from the game forever. He also appeared at the breakfasts in the morning, during which he confirmed which player was "murdered" the night before. Alan played the role with the perfect mix of intrigue and humor, and he seemed to love every second of it.
In an interview with Distractify, Alan revealed that he was deeply fascinated with The Traitors' contestants "abilities to deceive," but it was hard for him to be unable to reveal truths that he had heard. He admitted, "It was kind of awful for me because I was playing this quite stern character and I would find out things about them that are, what they thought was true. And knowing that it just wasn't and not being able to say anything and be very sort of noncommittal, I find that really hard." Alan explained that it was good that he was playing a character as the host because he could act. He confessed, "Because if it was just me, I would have been, you know, I've got a terrible poker face."

Although Alan shared that he found it hard to watch The Traitors contestants deceive each other when he knew the truth, he very much enjoyed his time as the host of the show as well. He said, "This is a reality, psychological competition show that is amped up to the max and I just [run] around in funny costumes in a castle and pretend it's my castle and generally just berate the people. It's absolutely bonkers." He said that the contestants backstabbed each other, "through utter insecurity and fear." He explained that every night they had to turn on each other at the roundtable for the banishments, and that was his favorite part, "because you just saw people crumble." Alan added, "My favorite part is when people say, 'I can't believe you lied to me.' It's called The Traitors, b–ch. Sorry."
As The Traitors became a more intense game, it must have been very difficult for Alan to watch the contestants speak up at the roundtable, especially when they were wrong about their fellow competitors. It was a good thing that he was playing a character as the host because, if he were just there as himself, it might have been difficult for him to keep a straight face. Alan knew who the traitors were the whole time, and he watched every roundtable with that information. It must have been extremely challenging for him to not give anything away.
Alan was the perfect host for The Traitors. He is an incredible actor who made the show exciting and humorous without being overbearing. He left viewers wanting more every time, which is the mark of a great actor who has the audience in the palm of his hand. The Traitors contestants also adored him and thought that he was so much fun as the host. With his superb acting and impeccable wardrobe, Alan was an iconic figure in the castle. Alan might have admitted that part of his hosting job was hard, but he made it look easy on The Traitors.
All 10 episodes of The Traitors released Thursday, January 12 on Peacock.
