Self proclaimed mystifier Criss Angel wows people for a living.

Now it's his turn to be wowed on the new reality series "Phenomenon".

Angel and mentalist Uri Geller will begin a live five week search for the world's next great mentalist.

Contestants from around the world will compete.

It's a group not lacking in self confidence.

The challenge is backing up the bravado.

"If they go and try to make the claim that they have psychic abilities, I'm going to bust them," Angel explained.

The winner takes home $250,000.
