Don’t you love when celebrities play on your favorite game shows? I personally love Celebrity Week on Jeopardy and even enjoy when NFL football players play with with their fans on Wheel of Fortune. For those of you who can’t get enough celebrity, I’m sure that Hollywood Squares not being on air is killing you inside. Now, one of the longest-running game shows is having it’s first ever celebrity week.
After 40 seasons, The Price Is Right is celebrating with its own version of celebrity week. Executive producer for the show, Mike Richards, talked a little bit about the upcoming episodes.
“It was a lot of fun to watch these celebs play our iconic games. Each one had their own unique strategy to win. Let’s just say Snoop knows more about the price of grocery items than you might think!”
One celebrity will appear on the show per day for a one week run starting January 2 and ending January 6 on CBS and other syndicated stations. The stars are playing for their favorite or personal charities. A fun twist is that the contestants competing against them will have a chance to win a personal prize corresponding to the star they are playing with. Fun right? Check out the celebrity line up below.
