QUICK TAKE

JOIN THE PALADINS FROM ABC'S "THE QUEST," AS THEY LIVE TWEET DURING THE SERIES PREMIERE, THURSDAY, JULY 31

ABC's genre-bending new reality series, "The Quest," features 12 people, pulled from their everyday lives, who are transported to a fantasy world where they are declared Paladins, defenders of a noble cause. These Paladins must compete to save the besieged kingdom of Everealm but only one will prevail and earn the right to be called the One True Hero.

"It got to me because I thought, who amongst us doesn't want to be a hero... I loved it," said Whoopi Goldberg today on "The View."
