Things are about to heat up on the latest episode of 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune', with Chris Harrison making his first-ever appearance on ABC following his much-talked-about exit from The Bachelor franchise. The long-time host of the television reality dating show is returning to the network to spin the wheel and play for a million dollars alongside Robert Herjavec, Alfonso Ribeiro, and hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White. But don't let this week's glitz and glamour deceive you into thinking Celebrity Wheel of Fortune is out of its big guns. Read on to find out when the game show returns to ABC and what charities are being played for when it does.
According to TV schedule and listings, 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' is returning with Episode 8 in just a short week's time next Thursday, March 4, at its usual 8 PM slot on ABC. The synopsis reveals that the episode will feature Rachael Leigh Cook, Sherri Shepherd, and Kevin Nealon as they compete for a chance to win up to $1 million for their chosen charity.
Cook, who's known for her works in 'The Baby-Sitters Club ', and other titles like 'She's All That', and 'Josie and the Pussycats', has also been in the TV series 'Into the West' and 'Perception'. She will be playing for Feeding America, which is ranked by Forbes as the largest charity by revenue in America. The organization is a "United States–based nonprofit organization that is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community-based agencies."
Very popular as the former co-host of 'The View', the multiple Daytime Emmy Award nominee and comedian, author, and television personality Shepherd will be playing for Reel Beauty, a Chicago-based charity devoted to a "goal to get back to the basics in taking responsibility for our girls by restoring and revitalizing their mind, body and spirit." Their website says, "Our philosophy is 'Reel Beauty is Skin Deep'”.
Nealon, known for his comedic genius and long running SNL stint, will be playing for The Store, which "operate as a year-round free grocery store allowing people to shop for their basic needs."
