Are you low-key obsessed with the trivia game app HQ? You’re not alone.
Last Sunday night ― only four months after its launch ― more than 680,000 people tuned into the free-to-play streaming game.
If you love HQ, you probably love its host, too: Scott Rogowsky, aka Quiz Daddy aka Trap Trebek. To get the lowdown on the host with the most, we went straight to the source. Below, Rogowsky tells us more about himself ― including whether he’s currently dating anyone.
He's a New Yorker, born and raised.

"I was born in Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, raised in Harrison, New York, about 25 miles north in Westchester County," Rogowsky told HuffPost. "What comes around goes around, because I'm currently living in my childhood home as I search for a new apartment. Perfectly normal for a guy in his 20s, right? Too bad I'm not in my 20s."
He's not that good at trivia.
Quiz Daddy is just your average Joe when it comes to his trivia skills. "I'm not going to lie to you and say I'm Mr. Fantastic or Professor X or Ken Jennings," he said. "I don't know all the answers, but I have all the answers, and isn't that what's important?"His areas of expertise? "Sports, history, geography, politics and movies starring Pamela Anderson."
His roots are in stand-up.
Running Late With Scott Rogowsky
For years, he hosted a comedy panel show with his dad, Marty, called Running Late with Scott Rogowsky.
A lot of celebrities stopped by, including Jon Hamm and Amy Sedaris. He also did stand-up, which he still makes time for when his busy HQ schedule allows."My favorite part of stand-up are the three or four people in a room of 80 or 100 who laugh reeeeally
hard at my jokes while the rest of the crowd stares at me blankly," he said. "I do it for those three or four people."
The more you know. Now get back to the game!
