The five stars are:

The Trickster, Jeff Hobson is the epitome of glamour and showmanship. The Inventor, Kevin James is known for innovative illusions, is an inventor, comedian and collector of the strange and unusual. The Deductionist, Colin Cloud is a psychic savant known as a real-life Sherlock Holmes. The Manipulator, An Ha Lim was the first place winner at Korea’s Busan International Magic Competition (2006), Italy Club Convention Manipulation (2006) and World Magic Seminar in Asia (2007). He was also a Golden Lion Award winner at the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas (2008). The Daredevil, Jonathan Goodwin, is an accomplished knife thrower, archer, escape artist, fakir, martial artist, free diver, and free climber. Unlike the other performers in the show, he is not a magician or illusionist.
