While ‘Star Trek’ star Zachary Quinto and television fame Karamo Brown will take the hot seat after Peet in the first episode, Special Education Teacher Shadi Seyedyousef will be seen in the second and third episodes. Stand-up comedian and actor Ray Romano will grace the show in the last episode vying for the big prize. 

Here’s what to expect 

Even though we couldn’t predict the performance of the celebrities owing to the nature of the quiz-based show, we can tell you what each one of them is playing the game for. The official synopsis for the January 6 episodes read as follows:

“Amanda Peet continues her winning streak for the charity Big Sunday. Zachary Quinto plays for The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, and Karamo Brown takes his shot at the million for the Hollywood Food Coalition.”

“Special Education Teacher Shadi Seyedyousef takes her shot at the million-dollar prize, and Ray Romano jumps in the hot seat for the charity Harvest Home.”

So far, only David Chang, the American restaurateur and television personality has won $1 million on ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’. Meanwhile, the ‘Modern Family' actress Julie Bowen managed to win $500,000. Rebel Wilson and American therapist JD Barton won the next highest prize, $250,000 each.

It remains to be seen if Peet, who is continuing in the next episode, can win the ultimate prize. The audience has already started placing their bets on the actress after witnessing her intellectual acuity in the previous episode. She was accompanied by her friend and ‘Game of Thrones’ co-creator DB Weiss.
